Fixed and enhanced statistics/progress tracking

The progress tracking output was borked in a couple of ways, one cosmetic (the chart display had hundreds of stacked labels on the X axis) and one arithmetical (I was miscalculating the projected duration based on current progress). I've fixed both of those issues.

Poem encoding and Quick Fixes

Worked on my poem-encoding Quick Fix so that it can now tag a whole poem in one go. As part of developing and testing, I also encoded a couple of poems myself, and did some tweaks to rendering and processing. I also ran the OCR task against the 1840 poems to give myself a bit more choice in picking test poems. Updated the documentation as well.

PDFs under way

Yesterday and today, TEH and I got the code I originally started in September brushed up and working, so there is a functional PDF generation pipeline; she's now beginning to fill in some template details and getting familiar with how attribute-sets work. There's quite a lot of work to do here, but it's all going to be quite satisfying from an Endings point of view, and there's a lot to learn for TEH.

First steps in generating HTML5

I'm now in the process of adapting the XQuery and XSLT from the Cocoon-based site to create static versions of the pages, and I'm making steady progress. One issue is that I'd like to avoid the use of the custom Java collation for sorting, just for the sake of simplicity, so I'm wondering about implementing the same thing in XSLT; it may not be worth it, though. We've been having discussions with PS about how the redesign might work, and I think the best approach right now is to generate something similar to what we have, and implement the JS-based search functionality, then worry about the actual design when PS has some more time.

Standalone XML now building; code reorganized

Starting work on the Ending-ization of the project, I've written the process that expands the XML into standalone pages, added validation for those pages into the system, and started a reorganization of code to make the build process easier.

Functional scale of agora

Since the spartan acropolis is easy to see, as its the raised earth section upon which the theatre and other remains are located, we can place the Agora. According to thucydides and pausanias' description of a westward road leading from the agora past the theatre we can place it south of the acropolis. This may be going into extreme detail but I would like to create a map of Sparta that shows as close to exact locations as possible.

Refined parallel approach

While the massively-parallel approach appeared to be working on my desktop when run overnight, some processes did seem to have crashed near the beginning; on GN's machine the whole thing died within minutes. I've now rewritten it so that only four (configurable param) processes are run in parallel at the same time, to hopefully reduce the load on the machine. We're now testing that.

Needed to get CGWP parallel process running so we can see how far it gets overnight.
