CVS repository - first import
Message ID:
Woot!  There it is in all its mishmash glory.  I just imported my work so
far on (and its little helpers, DateTime::Language (and
subclasses), and DateTime::Duration). and DateTime::Duration are based on Date::ICal and
Date::ICal::Duration respectively.  DateTime::Language and its subclasses
are based on the Date::Language modules included with Graham Barr's
TimeDate distro.

Theft is good!

So far I've done some work to add more of the Time::Piece-esque methods to
the base object.  I've added the ability to specify a language (per-object
or as a default for all objects), cleaned up and expanded the docs,
cleaned up a little bit of the internal implementation, added some tests,
cleaned up the test code itself a bit.

There's a big todo list in the aptly named TODO file, which I'm sure will
grow even more before it shrinks.

CVS checkins are sent to the list, which
you can sign up for at

For now, I'd like to keep actual development discussion on _this_ list,
because this project is still very much in the "get many people's input"
stage.  Eventually, I think things will settle down to a core group of
implementers, and then we'll move dev discussion to the dev list and use
this list for general usage questions, module announcements, and so on.
