This weekend I have made some darn good progress on the WTF project.  The system of splitting up what LJ code calls "friends" into two groups: people you watch and people you trust.  This split enables you to do some pretty neat things with managing your usage of the site.

Of course, it's a hell of a project.  The diff at present is 4,568 lines of code.  Granted, a lot of that is moving things around, but each bit of code has had to be altered and updated to fit with the new model.  In many cases policy decisions have to be made about whether to convert existing friends functionality to use your "watch list" or your "trust list."

Anyway, I'm mostly posting now to see if posting works.  Time to crash.
