I just don’t have enough time to work on Vellum. I hate that. So I’ve converted the back end of this site to PyBlosxom. Essentially, were I to rework Vellum’s plugin architecture it’d end up looking like PyBloxsom anyway.
Doesn’t mean I’m happy about having to abandon the project, though. I can hope it’s only temporary, but don’t hold your breath.
On the other hand, PyBloxsom is actually pretty neat. I had to throw together a whole big pile of plugins and special page flavours to make as days pass by keep going the way it was, but that’s OK. I’ll do a more decent writeup of everything I did (mpt-style permalinks! recent comments list! SSI in head.flavour files!) at some point. Just let me mourn my project for a bit first.
