[csw-maintainers] moving forward

I'm going for 2 weeks vacation this Sunday.  I will have no access to
shell, so if something breaks, you're on your own until the 2nd of
August.  I will try to peek at email and might offer advice.  Before I
go, we could meet online for a walkthrough over the codebase, to make
potential debugging easier.

A couple of notes:

- if the catalog generation fails, Dago receives an email with the error message
- to implement signing, you need to modify the opencsw-future-update
script[1] which runs on the web zone (see crontab -l)

Off the top of my head, here are things to do in the near future:

- implement better error reporting for the catalog generation script;
it could be as simple as capturing stdout and sending it somewhere if
the return code != 0
- remove the snapshots and snapshot generating scripts; we once
thought of snapshots, but will have named releases instead
- implement migration from unstable to dublin, however lame

I will not be online this evening.  I'll pop up on Saturday (tomorrow)
morning (IST) to see if there any loose ends to tie.  I'll be out
Saturday evening, and gone on Sunday. You can expect me back on the
2nd of August in the evening IST.
