Arcane Jill's BigInt library on www.dsource.org
It used to be in her Diemos library, but it seems to be gone from dsource.
Anyone know what happened to it?

I don't know what happened to the Deimos project,
("Could not open the requested SVN filesystem" ?)

but the license on etc.bigint made it kinda unusable anyway...

Quite possibly the weirdest "advertising clause" ever ?

BTW; The actual code seems to still be in Googles cache...

This link gave me an error: http://svn.dsource.org/svn/projects/deimos/
"Could not open the requested SVN filesystem".

My guess is that the SVN repository needs repairing or something like that. I'll
do a little more research when I get home, but the bottom line is that Brad will
probably need to do something to fix it.

Does anyone know what happened to Arcane Jill, let alone what happened 
to the BigInt library?

Re: Arcane Jill's BigInt library on www.dsource.org
Not sure what happened.  Usually I'm alerted to this disruption in the 
Subversion repository while cron runs the backup, but my emailed logs 
have been clean of any errors/warnings.

The repository is repaired now, so you should be able to get the code...

On a related note, the new dsource server (now almost mythical with the 
delays) will not suffer from this SVN repository corruption, as I'll be 
using the fsfs type of backend, and getting away from the bdb backend. 
This is possible with an upgrade to Subversion 1.1.3

I've wondered the same thing ... she used to be a very prolific poster
with lots of ideas that seemed reasonable. There was a post some
months back about taking some time away from the D list.

I tried to send her an email in Nov indicating we missed her and hoped
all was well, but didn't hear back.

Truly weird. Especially the ending, which I'd have written
"even if _not_ adviced"...

That link seems to work now and the files are there; however, I can't 
seem to check it out with SVN.  I get

[masg2-mac:~/Downloads/d] masg2% svn checkout 
http://svn.dsource.org/svn/projects/deimos
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:670: (apr_err=175002)
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/projects/deimos/!svn/vcc/default'
subversion/libsvn_ra_dav/util.c:294: (apr_err=175002)
svn: REPORT of '/svn/projects/deimos/!svn/vcc/default': 400 Bad Request 
(http://svn.dsource.org)

and similarly with other similar requests.  Am I doing something wrong?

I was able to pull it out of the repos from my home Windows box and 
TortoiseSVN.  I imagine the same would be true for my command-line 
client for Linux.

I think my clients are up-to-date, i.e. 1.1.x or so, but the server is 
still 1.0.3 (for now).  But I don't think that's it...

The 400 error makes me think it was either a bandwidth issue or the 
server was really busy.  I also wouldn't try it from 11:15am CST for an 
hour, because that's server backup time...  It's busy and overworked for 
such a small server.  The new one should handle this a lot better.

Keep trying, and also let me know if you get the errors right away, or 
if some files come down and then the errors pop up.  I could always 
package it into a download and post it to the downloads section.

Re: Arcane Jill's BigInt library on www.dsource.org
Hope you don't mind me mentioning this Ben, but I've tried both Ben Hinkle's GMP
for D wrapper and the AJ BigInt library and I find the GMP wrapper to be more
usable (better op. overloading, for example), much more performant, easier to
use (package structure, linking, etc.), easier to customize for one's needs (eg:
performance 'tuning') and finally it is up-to-date with the latest DMD language
requirements.

You may want to give that a shot also.

I noticed that the BigInt library was slated for inclusion in Deimos, personally
- if anyone involved with that is listening - I would evaluate both before much
work is done updating/including the AJ BigInt library.
