Working in the Basement

Things have been going pretty well at the Community Software Lab. I've spent the majority of this month on a pretty interesting project of migrating the current code repository for the CSL's main web product, MVHub (, from subversion to bazaar. I had no experience with version control software prior to this and it was a great project for getting some experience with them as I researched how the two VCS implementations were different in order to do a smooth migration from one to another. The migration is 99% complete and I just performed a presentation of how to use bazaar to the volunteer coders at the CSL. It should be complete by the end of the week and then I'll move on to my next assignment.

I went to a meeting of the board members earlier this month as well, and it was great to get to meet them. They are a really enthusiastic and approachable crowd of people. We mostly discussed how we can get the CSL actually have an income stream, not a small task. I was involved in the creation of the budget for the next year, and I hope that by the end of my VISTA term my contributions have allow the CSL to meet the goals we set.

CSL is an awesome bunch of people. Glad to hear you're stoked on it.
