I have finally accomplished something towards getting Geeklog 2 off the ground. I have cobbled together some code that uses my A&A system along with a custom PHP4 session handler to successfully authenticate a user and save their data to the session. This accomplishment is a big step as it gives the foundation other developers need to start doing their thing. To ge the details of this work go here. Next on the block is a suitable language/localization sub-system for our non-US friends shortly followed by agreeing on the Geeklog 2 module API. The module API will be the next major milestone as it will allow module developers to get started on porting their stuff over to the new API while we actually implement it.
In other good news, we have a few candidates for a Geeklog 2 DBA. I have promised him a schema yet tonight so he can work on moving it from MySQL to PostgreSQL We will support both DBMS’s out of the box as well as MS SQL Server (yawn). If he does a good job, he’ll have the job. It would be amazing to have a good DBA on-board fairly regular!
