37 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
38 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
39 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
40 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
41 their install profiles!

128 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
129 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
130
131 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

133 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
134
135 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
136 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
137 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
138 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
139
140 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
141 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

154 get subarch.
155
156 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
157 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
158 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
159 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
160 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
161 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
162
163 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

173 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
174 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
175 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
176 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
177
178 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
179 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
180 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
181
182 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
183 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
184 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
185 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
186 as follows:
187 <etc-portage>
188 <file name="package.mask"/>
189 <file name="package.unmask">
190 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
191 </file>
192 <file name="package.use">
193 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
194 -java
195 </entry>
196 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
197 -ldap
198 </entry>
199 </file>
200 </etc-portage>
201
202
203 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
204 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
205 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
206 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
207 keys in the same order.
208
209 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
210 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
211 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
212 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
213
214 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
215 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
216 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
217 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
218 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
219 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
220
221 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
222 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
223 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
224 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
225
226 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
227 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
228 in add_network_interface.
229
230 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
231 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
232 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
233 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
234 prepare_chroot.
235
236 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

245 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
246
247 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
248 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
249 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
250 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
251
252 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
253 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
254 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
255 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
256 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
257 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
258 instead of the package atom.
259
260 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
261 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
262 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
263 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
264 __builtin__.file.
265
266 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
267 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
268 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
269 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
270 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in
271 /var/tmp instead of /root for build_kernel phase.

274 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
275
276 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
277 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
278 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

280 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
281 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
282 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
283

291
292 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
293 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
294 be executable.
295
296 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
297 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
298 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
299
300 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
301 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
302 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
303

450 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
451 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
452 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in
453 _get_packages_to_emerge(). Fix _quickpkg_deps() to call
454 _get_packages_to_emerge()

473 code.
474
475 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
476 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
477 adding the new value to the end of the file.
478
479 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
480 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

484 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
485 pythondoc.
486
487 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
488 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
489 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
490 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
491 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
492
493 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
494 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
495 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
496 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
497
498 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
499 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
500

505 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
506
507 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

509 sed to properly strip out junk.
510
511 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
512 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

521 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
522 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
523 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
524 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
525 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
526 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
527
528 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
529 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
530 when unpacking tarball.
531
532 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
533 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
534 filesystem_tools code.
535
536 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
537 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
538 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
539 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
540 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
541
542 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
543 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
544 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
545 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
546
547 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
548 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
549
550 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
551 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
552 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
553
554 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
555 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
556 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
557
558 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
559 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
560 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
561 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
562 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
563 the install profile if available.
564
565 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
566 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
567 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
568
569 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
571
572 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
573 took chroot out of grub_install command.
574
575 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
576 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
577 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
578 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
579 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
580 as it breaks the piping.
581
582 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
583 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
584
585 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
587 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
588 GLIInstallProfile.
589
590 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
591 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
592 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
593 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
594
595 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
596 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
597 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
598 to start/end sectors
599
600 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
601 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
602
603 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
604 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
605 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
606 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
607 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
608 for the generated script from spawn()
609
610 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
611 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
612 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
613 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
614 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
615
616 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
617 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
618
619 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
620 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
621
622 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
623 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
624 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
625
626 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
627 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
628
629 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
630 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
631
632 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
633 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
634 lang parameter to __init__()
635
636 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
637 updates to TODO list.
638
639 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
640 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
641 'emerge -p blah'
642
643 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
644 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
645 added quickpkg to TODO list
646
647 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
648 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
649 so that the installer can continue.
650
651 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
652 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
653 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
654 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
655
656 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
657 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
658 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
659
660 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
661 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
662 of adding them.
663
664 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
665 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
666
667 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
668 updated TODO list. (again)
669
670 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
671 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
672 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
673 fixed custom kernel config (again)
674
675 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
676 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
677 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
678
679 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
680 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
681 the partitions :P
682
683 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
684 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
685 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
686 blank.
687
688 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
689 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
690 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
691
692 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
693 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
694 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
695 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
696 mounting code.
697
698 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
699 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
700 sets it randomly.
701
702 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
703 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
704
705 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
706 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
707
708 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
709 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
710 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
711
712 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
713 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
714 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
715
716 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
717 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
718 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
719 be safe before third pass.
720
721 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
722 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
723 will test when i get back to school.
724 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
725 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
726
727 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
728 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
729 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
730 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
731 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
732
733 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
734 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
735
736 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
737 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
738
739 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
740 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
741 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
742
743 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
744 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
745 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
746 some may still have eluded me.
747
748 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
749 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
750 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
751
752 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
753 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
754
755 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
756 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
757 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
758 from GLIInstallProfile.
759
760 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
761 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
762
763 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
764 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
765 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
766
767 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
768 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
769 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
770
771 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
772 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
773 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
774
775 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
776 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
777 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
778
779 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
780 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
781 can be resized.
782
783 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
784 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
785 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
786
787 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
788 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
789 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
790
791 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
792 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
793 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
794 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
795 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
796
797 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
798
799 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
800 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
801 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
802
803 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
804
805 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
806 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
807 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
808 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
809 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
810 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
811 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
812
813 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
814
815 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
816 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
817 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
818 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
819 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
820 Added initial unit test code.
821
822 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
823
824 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
825 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
826 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
