To create a new fossil repo:

  *  Set the project name in "fossil ui": http://localhost:8080/setup_config
  *  Enable zipfile fetching: "fossil user capabilities nobody gjorz"
  *  Set the admin password: "fossil user password alaric"
  *  Copy it into "~snell-systems/kitten-technologies/fossil/", and
     chown it to "www"
  *  Add CGI file in this repo: <code>src/project</code>

     ~/personal/projects/kitten-technologies/bin/generate-download-page <NAME>
................................................................................
  http://www.kitten-technologies.co.uk/project/<NAME>/doc/trunk/<NAME>.release-info

  *  Add it to Alaric's FOAF file as a currentProject.
  *  Tweet it from https://twitter.com/Kitten_Tech

To do new a release of a project:

  *  Tag it as the version number, eg "1.0"
  *  If it's a chicken egg, update the release-info file to reflect
     the new release, and the .setup file to reflect the new version number.


  *  Update DOWNLOAD.wiki by running:

     ~/personal/projects/kitten-technologies/bin/generate-download-page <NAME>
  *  Commit and push.

  *  Tweet it from https://twitter.com/Kitten_Tech

<h1>How the RDF stuff works</h1>

Each project (including this meta-project) has a METADATA.rdf file.

The site has just been significantly redesigned and the projects are being ported from [[http://subversion.apache.org/|Subversion]] into [[http://fossil-scm.org|Fossil]]. As such, many of the projects are currently missing while I manually convert each of them over to Fossil. If you'd like to ask me to hurry up with any of the below, please [[https://www.kitten-technologies.co.uk/project/kitten-technologies/tktnew|file a ticket]].

== Current Projects

* [[/project/ugarit|Ugarit]], a backup/archival system based around content-addressable storage, inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venti|Venti]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Git_(software)|Git]].
* [[/project/ugarit-manifest-maker|Ugarit Manifest Maker]], a tool for rapidly generating archive import manifests for Ugarit.

* [[/project/speakd|speakd]], a scheduler for text-to-speech announcements.
* [[/project/banterpixra|banterpixra]], a tool for converting language grammers in a form of BNF to nice "railroad diagrams" in SVG.
* [[/project/tangle|Tangle]], a tool for managing networks. The network is described in a human-readable text file that documents devices, ports, cables, virtual circuits, physical locations, owners of equipment (useful for colocation), and IP subnets. The tool cross-checks the file for errors and generates an easily navigated HTML reference document, as well as multiple diagrams of the logical and physical cabling.
* The Eye Of Horus, a server/service monitoring tool in a similar vein to Nagios, but redesigned from scratch to address some frustrations with it.
* [[/project/argon|ARGON]], an ambitious blue-sky project re-examining the platforms on which we build software. It's still in a very protracted and detailed design process; I may be implementing some of it in the next decade or so.
* [[/project/simple-graphics|Simple Graphics]], a simple turtle graphics library for Chicken Scheme, aimed at education.
* [[/project/quick-ref-cards|Kitten Quick Reference Cards]], a set of handy references to things like transistor electronics, structured cabling, and Lojban grammar.
