At the Forge - Bricolage Alerts
As we saw last month, Bricolage is a large and complex system. Alerts make it possible for relevant information to pursue you, freeing you from having to hunt it down on a number of different screens. Although alerts are only a small part of the Bricolage system, they offer an intriguing view of its depth and breadth and of the options available with different objects.
The main source of information about Bricolage is the project's Web site, at bricolage.cc. That site has pointers to downloadable source code (hosted at SourceForge), documentation and an instance of Bugzilla (bugzilla.bricolage.cc) for bug reports and feature requests.
There are several Bricolage mailing lists, hosted by SourceForge, in which the developers participate actively. If you have questions or want to learn about new releases, you can subscribe from the SourceForge page (sourceforge.net/projects/bricolage).
The Bricolage documentation generally is quite good, though technical. A more user-level introduction to the system was published by O'Reilly and Associates as an appendix to the recently published book about Mason. You can read that appendix on-line at www.masonbook.com/book/appendix-d.mhtml.
For more information about PostgreSQL, see the project's main site at www.postgresql.org. For more information about Apache, see httpd.apache.org. To learn more about mod_perl, look at perl.apache.org. Remember that Apache 2.x and mod_perl 2.x both are unsuitable for Bricolage, although that may change by the time you read this. You can learn more about Mason from the Mason book site (www.masonbook.com) and from the Mason home page (www.masonhq.com).
