Hi all,

I wasn't able to start working on my project from 17th June as I had
exams till 19th. So, now that I've finished my exams \o/ I would like to
let everyone know that I have (officially :P) started working on my project.

I've also implemented the base design of the plugins window and some
core functionality during the free time I had between exams. Check out
my repository [1] if you would like to take a look (There's also a
/soc/2013/bhaskar/plugins_window which has no commits, it was a failed
clone attempt, feel free to delete it as I don't think I have the
permission to).

I have changed the design a little bit from the mockup done by Tomasz
mainly due to size constraints and GTK limitations (No CellRenderer for
buttons :/) It needs quite a bit of polish though.

Now I'll be implementing the website backend. I haven't made a
repository of it yet as I'm reordering the files and directory structure
of the Django project to be more modular. I'll make a repository once
I'm done.

One thing I would like to ask, which Python version is supported by the
Pidgin server that would host the plugins website? and would it be fine
to use MySQL as the DBMS? I know, I should have asked about it early on,
my apologies. I just wanted to know about the server specifics so I can
have a similar setup on my local system for testing.

Also, I'll be active on IRC from now on, so if anyone wants to have a
chat about my project or anything else ping the nick gastly.
