The web pages are under constant development. Here are some of the important stuff.



The markup has stabilized over the past year and is relatively consistent now. No major changes are planned. Minor changes can be requested here. Partly documented.

Page generation

Still mostly print-generation, but many of the commonly used markup structures has functions at least. The major hold-up is the table-writer which is essential before any code validity guaranties can be given. No documentation.

Data control

Still very fluffy. No spec/documentation. No agreements reached. Current content in database is (highly) inconsistent. New system for input control is under development (testing phase?), though.

String externalization

Wanted, but no concrete plans yet.

XVCL transition

Partly-mostly done?

Error handling

No concrete plans yet.

Code documentation

None atm.

Specific parts


Most importantly: fix type implementation. More...


Neglected for some time, yet mostly trivial to improve. More...


Improve ep status, less dependant on cron job, handle joint projects, ...


Fix scrolling, more filters, fix direct link. More...
