Holiday pics

Here are my pics from recent skiing holiday in Slovenia….

Anonymous CVS access to MSG

We’ve just enabled anonymous access to the MSG source code – previously we asked people to contact us via email to get an account. More info

Getting to grips with Git

I’ve just been getting my head around Git and the differences it has with SVN and CVS. Seems to be going well so far, and I really like the idea of having a local repository so changes aren’t immediately published to the remote Git repository.

Took a little while for me to figure out how to get the Eclipse Git plugin compiled and installed – but then I’ve never needed to compile a plugin before!

We’re now using Git for our OpenID server development and from the Cohere website:

OpenID for OUCUs (part 2)

I think I’ve got the problems with our OpenID server now resolved (as mentioned in my last post), but if you find any sites that still have problems then please let me know! One site I know can’t just use the direct identity url is LiveJournal, as it can’t discover the server url from xrds+xml. So will need to have a bit more of a play to get this working.
