Default Bug#489059: ITP: mnemosyne-blog -- Maildir-to-blog compiler with XML templating and Python extensions

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Decklin Foster <decklin@red-bean.com>

* Package name : mnemosyne-blog
Version : 0.9
Upstream Author : Decklin Foster <decklin@red-bean.com>
* URL : http://www.red-bean.com/~decklin/mnemosyne/
* License : ISC
Programming Lang: Python
Description : Maildir-to-blog compiler with XML templating and Python extensions

Mnemosyne is a simple blogging system which generates static files.
Instead of using a database or filesystem hierarchy, you store your
entries in a Maildir. Writing a blog entry is thus as easy as sending
an email, and rebuilding the blog can be automated with mail filters,
cron, etc.
.
XHTML and XML are generated with Kid templates; a bare-bones web view
and an Atom feed are included as examples. Mnemosyne is extensible in
Python to add features such as input preprocessing (reStructuredText
is used by default), metadata ("tags" are standard) and filtering
entries for custom feeds.

Yes, yet another static intarblog thing. I have found some interest
in blogging again, and would like to get it in better shape (almost
everything that should be added can be done as an extension, but the
extension interface is somewhat incomprehensible). As far as I know the
Maildir design is unique.

I wrote this ages ago, and in the meantime another package was renamed
to "mnemosyne", so in the tradition of epiphany-browser (and sup-mail,
which I am presently packaging) I'm going with "mnemosyne-blog" and
renaming things out of the way appropriately.

The short description starts with a capital letter only because
"Maildir" is spelled with an M.

Note: license in the released version is still MIT, but I'm
transitioning most of my non-GPL code. Before this goes in I will
probably roll 0.9.1.

I'd advise the name "mnemosyne-weblog" which is slightly less
jargonny.

Agreed. Thanks for considering this issue.

Hmm. While I don't want to dismiss this out of hand, I feel much more
natural saying "blog" myself. As a crude approximation of current usage,
here are the current numbers of google hits for:

"weblog" - 184,000,000
"blog" - 3,530,000,000

Additionally, the first hit for "weblog" is the wikipedia article for
"Blog" (the article for "Weblog" is a redirect to this article). IMO the
short form has passed into common enough usage that I would consider it
appropriate. Of course I wouldn't consider "weblog" *in*appropriate, if
upstream had a preference for that. I am my own upstream here, so I can
rule that one out
