  • CRC32 isn't a general-purpose hash function, but it does alright: no collisions for most limited enumerated sets, like a set of 19,000 English words.
  • Lots of reviews around porting kitsune to the new notification system. Did migrations for the new system. Ported the Knowledge Base to it. Implemented enumerated set hashing for it.
  • Made nose-progressive, a nose plugin which displays progress in a stationary progress bar, freeing the rest of the screen (as well as the scrollback buffer) for the compact display of test failures. It displays failures and errors as soon as they occur and avoids scrolling them off the screen in favor of less useful output.
  • Thinking about making arbitrary left joins expressible with the Django ORM. Anybody know if someone's already done this and is hiding it?
