Current dirt

Spending less time online: I'm been spending more time making stuff and less time talking. I've a project publicly hosted, though it isn't in very good shape. This has provided an invigorating drive to get it to 1.0 and be done with it.

As a side-effect, I've found myself writing an extension to Python's distutils to support (1) generation of POT files from source, and (2) generation of MO files from PO files. This'll be a genuinely useful patch, which will be spun off of the current project. I'll then create 3 downloads: patches to distutils, patches to setuptools, and a stand-alone immediately useful in someone's setup.py file.
