Today was a distracting day for me. My homeowner’s insurance is requiring that I get my house re-roofed, so I’ve had contractors coming and going all day to give me estimates. Beyond just the cost, we’ve been checking on state licensing, insurance, etc. I’ve been most shocked at the differences in the level of professionalism from them, you can really tell the ones for whom it is a business, and not just a job.
But I still managed to get some work done today. After a call with Francis Ginther about the API website importers, we should soon be getting regular updates to the current API docs as soon as their source branch is updated. I will of course make a big announcement when that happens
I didn’t have much time to work on my Debian contributions today, though I did join the DPMT (Debian Python Modules Team) so that I could upload my new python-model-mommy package with the DPMT as the Maintainer, rather than trying to maintain this package on my own. Big thanks to Paul Tagliamonte for walking me through all of these steps while I learn.
I’m now into my second week of UbBloPoMo posts, with 8 posts so far. This is the point where the obligation of posting every day starts to overtake the excitement of it, but I’m going to persevere and try to make it to the end of the month. I would love to hear what you readers, especially those coming from Planet Ubuntu, think of this effort.
 Re-roofing, for those who don’t know, involves removing and replacing the shingles and water-proofing paper, but leaving the plywood itself. In my case, they’re also going to have to re-nail all of the plywood to the rafters and some other things to bring it up to date with new building codes. Can’t be too safe in hurricane-prone Florida.
