I've been for a walk around the streets this afternoon, looking at the various diggings that are going on. There's some massive moving of limestone going on down at High Street, and some lesser but perhaps more delicate horizontal boring of new power lines near Swanbourne Street. The rain came at some point, and I hid under a tree on the edge of Stevens Reserve. I'd upload some photos, but they're stuck on my camera because I don't have an SD card reader to hand.
I've merged the first part of the locally-rendered stuff for the Diagrams extension. There are still a bunch of things that don't work quite as they should (like captions) but for Graphviz and Mscgen things are nearly done. I'll get it deployed on toolforge:genealogy and experiment a bit.
I don't quite know what's going wrong yet, but with two wikis now I've had the following error when trying to log in after upgrading to 1.34: "Auto-creation of a local account failed: Username entered already in use. Please choose a different name."
The error seems to go away after the session expires, and the user is logged in correctly (sometimes after a subsequent error of "Auto-creation of a local account failed: You have not specified a valid username.").
The wet weather has finally actually arrived, so rather than tramping out across the heath like I'd planned, I'm sitting in Dôme with a coffee waiting for the early ferry. It's actually quite nice weather, sort of warm, but the later ferry is likely to be pretty rough. I want to head home and get a bit more work done on an idea I've got for a MediaWiki-as-blog feature.
