I adapted/transformed/re-wrote part of the motion estimation routine within my motion-compensated temporal filtering (MCTF) package to Pyrex. It simply computes the sum of absolute difference (SAD) between blocks of two video frames.
Here's a list of my OpenWrt tickets.
Playing with a web server after a very long time can be fun...
I set up lighttpd (aka 'lighty') to serve Mercurial and this blog.
Unfortunately, lighty 1.4.x cannot limit authentication just to PUT or POST requests -- 1.5 can. I tried building lighty 1.5 on OpenWrt which inevitably dished up some more OpenWrt tickets (#2247, #2224 ). On the other hand, I learnt quite a bit on the GNU libtool craziness (see http://www.metastatic.org/text/libtool.html)...
Mercurial is a distributed Source Control Management system written in Python.
OpenWrt ticket #2226 to commit the new Mercurial package is still pending but some preparatory bug fixes (#2225, #2248) have already been included.
