Subject Re: Tooling friendly incubator report
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 15:44:44 GMT
I already am aware of Whimsy.  :)

My main goal is to put into place building blocks, for automated tooling, around bits such
as reporting, mailing list management, etc.  These can be used my Whimsy as well as other
tooling bits and my site.

As for my site, I like Python and wish to goof around with panopticon.  I, frankly, don’t
see that harm in that since I am taking great pains to make sure that Whimsy is not excluded
from the building blocks that I wish to put into place.  Nor am I requiring that Whimsy uses
panopticon to take advantage of the work.
