Camembert

The second week of the Cheesecake/SoC project has ended, and all the stories have been completed. We chose the name camembert for this iteration. It included some very tasty (or should I say tasteful) refactoring from Michał, who sprinkled some magic pixie dust in the form of metaclasses and __getitem__ wizardry. It also included some development environment-related tasks, all of them executed via buildbot: automatically generating epydoc documentation and publishing it, running coverage numbers and publishing them, and converting the reST-based README file into Trac Wiki format. This last task had as a side-effect the creation of a little tool that Michał called rest2trac, which will be made available in the near future. Currently it does the conversions that we need for the markup we use in the README file.

All in all, another productive week, and lots of good work from Michał. Check out his Mousebender blog for more information.
