The Wesnoth-UMC-Dev Project has been around for quite a while now and it’s helped in the preparation of three user-made add-ons for entering Wesnoth’s mainline repository. As time passes more content finds its place into our facilities and more people learn to take advantage of Subversion. There’s still more to come, as ESR and Fabian Müller (fabi/fendrin) are working on a new drake campaign for mainline titled Wings of Victory.
We are currently in need of more people interested in helping around with repository maintenance and application processing tasks, though. Espreon, AI and I do our best to handle new registrations and keep everything tidy and clean, but we also have projects of our own!
As part of a series of changes I hope to have ready before March 2011 — just in time for our 3rd anniversary — the development of a new website “skin” codenamed Hakone, has started today.
I already have most of the CSS rules working, but this template is not leaving the early development stage soon, for I still want to try new and crazy ideas on it before the final deployment phase. In particular, I want to reorganize the site structure at the same time to make it more accessible to our target audience while providing as much documentation as we can. You can have a taste of the preliminary plan clicking on the screenshot above.
Due to my unusual workflow, things are likely to be dropped, replaced and added as I deem necessary or convenient. I’m going to make use of Twitter to post major updates as I go during the next few months.
Finally, I’ve also been making steady progress on improving Rei 2 IRC Bot’s power and cleanness, and for a couple of weeks Shikadibot has been running with her core instead of Shikadibot 0314’s (R.I.P.). Nonetheless, #wesnoth-umc-dev’s bot is unlikely to change much in terms of features, as she doesn’t run with all of Rei 2’s modules for the sake of resource saving.
