We’re now running WordPress 1.2. Check the release announcement and the changelog for more details.
We use CVS to manage the source code for supercrime.org. It allows all of us to make changes simultaneously and greatly eases the difficulty in upgrading to new versions of WP. To give you an idea how easy this makes things, here’s a listing of all the commands needed to upgrade our site from 1.2-rc2 to 1.2-mingus (the final release version):
$ wget http://wordpress.org/latest
$ tar zxvf wordpress-1.2-mingus.tar.gz
$ cd wordpress/
$ cvs import -m \"WordPress 1.2-mingus\" supercrime/web WP_DIST WP_1_2
$ cd ..
$ cvs checkout -jWP_1_2_rc2 -jWP_1_2 supercrime/web
$ cd supercrime/
$ cvs ci -m \"Merge 1.2-mingus\"
$ cd ..
$ rm -rf wordpress*
We all know the stories about ridiculous legislation that is still on the books in varying cities, counties, and states for reasons long forgotten which has now been relegated to nothing more than quaint trivia.
However, Ron Lewis, U.S. Representative from The Bluegrass State hopes to change all of that. Representative Lewis recently introduced House Resolution 3920, euphemistically titled “Congressional Accountability for Judicial Activism Act of 2004″, which would allow Congress to reverse judgments of the Supreme Court with a 2/3 vote in both houses.
I don’t want to go off on a rant here, and for once, I won’t. Thank you Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor at Slate for writing one for me.
