The last few days, working on MDC infrastructure stuff instead of primarily documentation writing and editing, has been a nice change of pace. I love to write, but I do also enjoy coding and other nitty-gritty work, so it’s fun to shift gears and work on this backend stuff for a while.
The RDF and RAP stuff needed for the breadcrumb system we’re looking at implementing is all set up now, but after further research, it turns out WikiTravel does in fact have a MediaWiki extension that turns the RDF into the actual breadcrumbs. Which makes sense, in retrospect. I’m in communication with the guys there and should have a copy of the extension soon. Hopefully we can all work together on maintaining and improving it going forward.
I’m also talking to sancus about getting nutch re-applied to the upgraded MDC, and about getting some bugs fixed there.
All in all, things are moving along nicely!
