Hi folks, just wanted to inform you of changes this week:
FreedomBuddy's been removed from Plinth.  Sure, it still exists in
most Plinth repositories as a branch, but it's well beyond time for it
to be moved into its own repository.  Hopefully, my git-fu was strong
enough to successfully extract it from Plinth in a way that somebody
can't accidentally merge them back together.  This gives me the
opportunity to, er, branch out and try a few new things.

The first (silly) thing I'm trying is to see if I can't host the
metadata (bugs, wiki) in the repository itself.  I've got an idea that
should let the repository self-host and publish its own static HTML,
much the way ikiwiki does it.  That way, the project can live across
infrastructures (Alioth, Gitorious, Github, etc) without issue.  I'll
commit the infrastructure code for that over the next couple weeks, as
it's certainly not my highest priority.

Also, I've started moving away from GitHub to Gitorious, to hopefully
set a better example:
