I’ve been using darcs as my version control software of choice for quite a while now, but unfortunately I’m having trouble using it with dreamhost 🙁 I’ve looked about on the web for anybody who has successfully created public repositories on dreamhost, but all I can find is people asking how to do it. Since I want to make the source for my httpmail plugin available and working with the sourceforge subversion repository is a pain I’ve decided to give git a try.
The code currently in the repository contains a target for Leopard which partially works. I’m not going to release binaries as yet because it is nowhere near ready for prime time at this stage.
- Connecting to Hotmail
- Downloading messages from the inbox
- Downloading messages from sub-folders (as long as the plugin is configured to store sub-folders under the root folder, not the inbox folder)
What doesn’t work
- Creating accounts
- Sending mail
- Pretty much everything else
So, if you’re feeling brave, and have git installed on your system along with XCode 3.0, feel free to check out the source and have a play (any code contributions will be greatly appreciated). For everybody else, rest assured I am working on it, if somewhat slowly.
