FAD Pune, haml and sup

I was supposed to be working on and talking about Dorrie. But that meant I had to sync the F13 repository, which I was not prepared with.

So I started checking out haml and converted one of my FSoC templates to haml. That was fun. Takes some time to get the hang of, but it makes your templates really clean and beautiful. Here's a before/after.

Rahul then asked me why I was not packaging sup. I said that was because I had never packaged anything for Fedora before. He said now would be a good time to start.

So we started packaging sup. We made a rpm spec from the gem spec of sup. I found out that a lot of sup's dependencies were not packaged for Fedora. So I started with them first.

For the rest of Day1 and entire Day2 I spent making spec files and doing review requests.

I have two packages under review now. Another is on the way.

Hoping to get sup packaged for Fedora soon.
Yours,
Shreyank.
