avva sent me the patch for UTF-8 support. Looks pretty damn good. It'll land within the week, I imagine. Then we can start doing XML everywhere!

Actually, I want to have UTF-8 landed before I leave Saturday for Austin, so then if anybody asks about international support, I can respond that we support UTF-8 everywhere. :P

Clustering is just about done. Tonight I need to take down Chef to see if it's broken in the same way Santa is. If it is, that sucks. If it's not, then Santa's unreliablity is more of a mystery, and that sucks more.

Thanks all for the pointers...

This post is sort of a follow-up to I don't know if this is the right way to continue, but change the course of, a conversation. If I am wrong, let me know.

The feature I would like to work on is basically what is suggested in suggestion 51173. Since I am currently unix disabled (working with Win2K, IIS, ASP (perlscript at least), SQL Server, and all that garbage for my day job), I would like to work off of goathack. I gather that I need to ask Brad or Dormando for that, and I will do so after posting this.

Is this OK to work on, or are there reasons that this is not being worked on, such as performance issues?
