-===============================
-
-  Known main issues:
-    * Do I need to tag delete operations?
-    * How to handle renames?
-    * How should we store tags? (Metadata support would be handy)
-      (currently done in Pickle files)
-
-  Longterm ToDo:
-    * Maybe refactor YYY into MoinLocalWiki
-    * Add page locking, i.e. use the one in the new storage layer (see XXX).
-    * Do older tags of one wiki site have to be stored as well? Why don't we
-      keep just one tag?
-    * Put author names into the comment field
-    * Transmit mimetypes (see XXX). Needs new storage system.
-    * Implement renamed pages.
-    * Cache the result of remote.get_pages locally to reduce the load.

-Diary
-=====
-
-Week 21: Basic infrastructure setup (repos),
-         initial talks to the mentor, started writing the design document,
-         helped other students to get started
-Week 22: Tax forms, fulfilled transcription request,
-         written conflict icon support, refactored conflict handling,
-         changed conflict icon, added xmlrpc multicall support into the server
-         and backported the client code from Python 2.4
-Week 23: Debian-Sprint in Extremadura, Spain. Initial thoughts about Mercurial as
-         a base for syncronisation. (See wiki)
-Week 24: Evaluation of OpenID as a base for authentication, written local testing scripts
-Week 25: Conference in Chile (FET 2006).
-Week 26: Implementation of the XMLRPC authentication system, added binary
-         diffing (mainly taken from Mercurial, but had to merge 5 changesets,
-         remove some mercurial dependencies and document it. Currently, Mercurial
-         uses a module written in C to solve the problem, so the Python code
-         was not cared for anymore.)
-Week 27: Europython, Geneva.
-Week 28: Debian-Edu Developer Camp. Implemented getDiff XMLRPC method, added preliminary SyncPages action,
-         added interwikiName XMLRPC method, added mergeChanges XMLRPC method. Started analysis of the moinupdate
-         script written by Stefan Merten.
-Week 29: Finished first version of the mergeChanges method. Added Tag and TagStore classes which are currently
-         using pickle-based storage. Added getAllPagesEx XMLRPC method.
-Week 30: Implemented IWID support, added function to generate random strings. Added support
-         for editing the InterWikiMap in the wiki. Added locking to the PickleTagStore and
-         the MetaDict classes. Added handling of various options and detection of anonymous
-         wikis to the SyncPages action.
-Week 31: Load the IWID and the meta dict lazily. Reworked RemotePage/SyncPage,
-         fixed option handling again, refined semantics of options, introduced
-         direction option, replaced "localMatch"/"remoteMatch" by "pageMatch".
-         Store mtime for InterWiki list updates and detect changes based on it.
-         Added support for localPrefix and remotePrefix.
-Week 32: Continued work on the merge logic, finished prefix handling. Added local conflict
-         detection in SyncPages. Added logging support to SyncPages. Refactored conflict flag
-         detection from the edit action into the PageEditor class. Enhanced XMLRPC server in Moin to allow
-         XMLRPC functions to return Fault instances. Introduced a new diff3 mode that should reduce the
-         conflicts. Fixed hard to track down bugs in SyncPages. Store full IWIDs and match by
-         either of both components when searching for tags. Ignore underlay pages. Filter the remote page list by
-         the prefix and the pageList on the remote side. Finished the direction==DOWN mode.
-Week 33: Started designing the solutions for the other sync cases. Store and transmit the
-         normalised name. Implemented preliminary mime type support, only transmission of the mime type
-         and the new storage API is missing. Changed getDiff interface. Detect renamed pages (and inform
-         the user about the missing support for them).
-         Added infrastructure support for detecting deleted pages.
-         Reworked i18n and logging support. Added GetText2 macro. Getting syncing of pages
-         working that are just available on one side. Working synchronisation of deleted pages.
-         Implemented rollback in case of remote problems and exception logging.
-         Documented this system on MoinMaster. Added authentication support.
