goodbye nanoblogger, hello chronicle

after having used nanoblogger since august 2005, I decided to switch my blog engine. the reason was mainly that nanoblogger gets terribly slow with more than a handful of entries.

inspired by nhandler, I took another look at chronicle, which had caught my interest before already. it's simple, produces static html pages from text files that I can keep in git, & it's written in perl :)

let's see how many years chronicle will accompany me …

RC bugs 2012/50
have I said before that we are running out of easy RC bugs? the list is a bit short this week:
  • #677861 – src:lftp: "lftp: FTBFS[kfreebsd-i386]: error: conflicting declaration 'typedef __int32_t gl_intptr_t'"
    sponsor upload to t-p-u from Ivo De Decker

    backport fix for t-p-u, upload with maintainer's and release team's permission
  • #691015 – conserver-client: "conserver-client: fails to upgrade from testing: Can't locate Tie/Hash/NamedCapture.pm in @INC"
