enki: tor's doxygen isn't posted anywhere. you have to make it yourself, if you want to read it.
it's probably been years since anybody tried to do so. once upon a time there was a 'make doxygen' that worked.
enki
arma: oh dear
something unbuildable isn't really the best thing to have as a contract...
arma
contract?
enki
in the tor HACKING file it says:
Doxygen comments are the contract in our abstraction-by-contract world (...)
arma
http://freehaven.net/~arma/doxygen/html/
i just built it
enki
thanks!
Are you usually active in this channel, when you're not doing awesome Tor things?
arma
enki
uh, no, you can s/doing awesome Tor things/busy/
         

arma
hm, this ps has lots of broken cites.
enki
I ask because I'm a researcher who's looking at Tor for an upcoming project, and could use a guide to things I can't get in the Tor codebase.
arma
there, the new ps has more labels working.
yes, there are quite a few developers here periodically
what in particular are you looking at?
the actual doxygen output isn't what doxygen is good for. it's the documentation habits that make it useful.
(documentation inside the code)
enki
then why bother with all the annoying markup?
arma
we don't find it that annoying?
enki
heh, touche
katmagic
Doesn't Tor use ASCIIdoc?
enki
I'm looking at how programs use state, particularly across versions
arma
katmagic: for the man pages, but not for the code
enki
Tor seemed to be a good example of an event-framework program, and it seems to have a lot of state that gets built up over a program's runtime, which makes it a good target for what I'm doing
I'm being vague because I am but a lowly undergrad and am unsure of what I can say; the people I'm working with have strange secrecy habits.
If things work out optimally, I'll have a version of Tor patched to support run-time upgrades
arma
huh. i wonder how much else about tor would need to change before that could become an actually good idea.
enki
the system, optimally, would basically just remove the need for a restart between versions
why do you think it might not be a good idea?
arma
well, that means some stuff sticks around. we'd need to make sure that tor is interacting ok with the stuff from the previous run.
(if nothing sticks around, then you aren't removing the need for a restart.)
enki
Yes, we have to transform state that has a changed representation in the new version to the new representation.
so, the system that we're using now isn't this at all, but the principles are mostly the same as this: http://www.cs.umd.edu/~mwh/papers/neamtiu06dsu.html
You can throw out all the type-safety analysis, but what we're doing is going from vN to vN+1 and bringing certain vital state with us, transforming what we need to transform
Manny
what is current stable?
ah, .25
arma
0.2.1.26
Manny
k, topic change
arma
enki: interesting. i bet tor's internals need some cleaning up before we can safely handle that. but no reason in theory why it wouldn't work.
"more modularity" is step one
enki
well, we'll find out ;-)
arma
sounds good
