source ready

I got the LJ source all packaged up. Email me and I'll send it to you. Include your username in your email (since I can't always tell who's who), and also your level of Perl experience. If you're not somewhat active on lj_dev or you don't know Perl, don't mail me..... this is intended for a few select people that will do a thorough code review and security audit and give me a lot of feedback .... not for people that are just somewhat interested.

If I get enough feedback, it'll go public on Saturday, March 17th.

Seriously, I need good feedback on two main areas:
  • SECURITY --- this is the most important. If you see I did something stupid that would let somebody do something they're not supposed to, email me immediately with info, and then include it in your overall review as well.
  • Performance --- less important, but still critical.... if you see something that is very stupid and is making things slow, let me know. Now isn't the time to rearchitect all the code, though.... maybe later.
So, I'll send you the tarball when you email me. The license specifically says it's not GPL'ed yet, so don't redistribute it. If you're paranoid and think I don't plan to GPL it (I just know this would have come up), then don't request it yet, and download it later when it is GPL'ed.
