  • IE 6 CSS support for tags
  • Found a little hole in the HTML5 spec or W3C's validator where hidden inputs aren't labelable. Talked to the validator authors and ended up opening a spec bug: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10146
  • Explored memcaching for tags. django-cache-machine will need significant work on many-to-many and generic foreign key invalidation to make this feasible.
  • Implemented creation of new tags.
  • Improved visual feedback when applying tags: happens faster and folds case client-side.
  • Turned up a jQuery bug where autocomplete treats vocabulary entries as HTML for menu-drawing but text in the input box. Bad for XSS. Reported, and it's fixed: http://dev.jqueryui.com/ticket/5275.
  • Started on question-editing.

  • Favorite part of Summit? Probably the Friday night party, but the whole thing was a lot of fun.


  • Working to get SUMO 2.2 frozen.
  • Started a couple little ideas:
    • django-csp a small bit of middleware to inject the CSP headers. Needs work to actually be configurable.

  • Oh, and I moved to New York. Looking for apartments now.
  • Last music: The new BSS.

  • Following up on all the Summit stuff took a chunk of last week
  • At OSCON this week learning all about Hadoop and Python. Talking Thursday about Declaring Technical Bankruptcy (when to rewrite vs just refactor)
    • I learned Hbase isn't appropriate for production :P
    • Also, Hbase vs RDBMS moves effort back from the hardware to the programmer
