Areas

Site

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

General

Markup

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.

Is this the internationalisation part? -- Ninjamask 05:34, 27 January 2008 (CET)
well to some extend it is. It's the second step of that. The firts is to get the text out so it's easier to maintain, but yes in a second step we could allow multiple languages -- Der Idiot 16:33, 29 January 2008 (CET)

XVCL transition

Partly-mostly done?

Error handling

No concrete plans yet.

Code documentation

None atm.

Specific parts

Episode

Most importantly: fix type implementation. More...

Mylist

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

For more discussion on future mylist enhancements, see: MyList_DEV
