hypatia: Documentation is an art – much like coding. It’s hard… but one of the most important things that can be done for a project. Good technical writers are rare, precious things – more power to you if you become one.

On the GNU Arch front, my gpg signing code is now in the mainline, along with enhancements from Tom – grab tla 1.2 if you want it. We support signed changesets, re-signed mirrors, and mirrors that copy the source signatures. AFAIK only monotone has anything equivalent, (although bitkeeper has apparently good integrity mechanisms – it’s not signed-by-the-author changesets).

Well, been a while. W-a-a-a-y to busy with work and stuff. Had a fun time today, implementing gpg signing support for GNU Arch. This should help verification for arch using source repositories, if the host they are on gets compromised.
