Hack week!

*does little jiggly dance*

If you're not familiar with what it is, here's the gist of it: For one week, all the geeks at Novell stop what they're doing and dive into a project of their choice. That's right, a full week of pure, anadulterated hacking!

This year I'm going to use this week to scratch an hitch I've been having with bugzilla, by getting together a proper GUI for the thing, together with uber-hacker Marek Habersack. Join up if you're interested, the more the merrier!

Great idea. And it'd be great if it would run on the NETCF... Then one can check one's bugs on the go.

I could handle making any changes necessary, but it would need to have a WinForms front-end in the first place...

And the 'offline' mode. :-)

Hey Andy!

That's a good idea, I should check for netcf compatibility. It already has some fallback code to be able to run in standard .net 2.0 in case you don't have 3.5 (or mono < 1.9 in case you don't have the latest preview available).

As for the winforms frontend, it's definitely planned and in the works! Otherwise, people might call me a traitor or something... ;)

Offline mode is integral to the whole thing, so we're going to cache bugs and batch commit stuff. :)
