Hi! I'm a contributor to logjam, the GTK+ client. I've been on LJ for just over a year and have been interested in its technological sides since I joined. I've had jobs as a programmer (Perl, C, databases, unix) in the past but I find that as long as I can get away with it, programming is much more fun when I'm not payed to do it. Now, to business.
This is a proposal for getting entry comments sync into the protocol. I know this has been discussed before but has never been implemented yet, primarily because it's hard to get right. I'm sure my proposal isn't complete, but it tries to take into account the existing protocol style, load demands on the server, and client functionality. Please feel very much invited to discuss this here; I want to get it off the ground.( Collapse )
