Raph Levien is the original author and maintainer of the official mod_virgule. What you're looking at here is a hacked version that I use to run robots.net. I needed more features than are provided in the official version but the project accepts few patches and tends to progress at a glacial pace. While both the original mod_virgule and my forked version are far from being well-optimized, my little robot site gets around 70k raw hits / 25k page views per day and is holding up just fine with this code. We've also been Slashdotted twice with no ill effects, which isn't bad for a site running on a PII 400 MHz box!

Raph has absorbed some of my modifications and changes into the official mod_virgule since I released this version and may eventually fold more of this functionality in (or not). In any case, this is strictly an unofficial version. Use at your own risk and don't expect Raph to provide any support for my changes. There is no guarantee that future official versions of mod_virgule will be compatible with this version or will contain any of the features I've added.

Raph's original version had lots of hard-coded references to Advogato.org. I've replaced all of those with user configurable equivalents or generic replacements. Now, if all the disclaimers haven't scared you off, you're probably wondering what my version does that the original doesn't:

FOAF RDF records are generated for each user account
Blogs may be aggregated via Atom, RSS, and RDF Site Summary
Faster trust metric and diary rating updates
Spam score triggers auto-removal of spammer accounts
Trusted users can flag observer accounts as spam
Special users can delete user accounts
Function names now conform to Apache module guidelines
New head_content tag makes additions to page headers possible
Site admin email address is now user configurable
Article topic/categories are now easily configurable
Config.xml loaded once instead of on every hit
Compiles against Apache 2 API
Compiles against libxml2 (Martijn van Beers libxml2 patch)
RSS 2.0 support
RSS exports 15 rather than 10 headlines
User list is configurable, paged and sorted by cert level
The /article/ index page is no longer hard-coded
The sitemap is configurable instead of hard-coded
"Forgot password" feature (roughly based on Steve Kemp's patch)
Trust Metric handling is more robust
No "vanishing file" problem
Improvements and fixes to UTF-8 handling in forms
Link element in headers to allow automated RSS discovery
Article titles are links to articles
User account page has consistent, easy to read menu layout
Usernames may have spaces, dashes, underscores, and dots
Articles can have topics/icons like slash or scoop sites
Users cannot certify themselves
Favicon support
Improved, detailed diagnostic info on test page
Posting, replying, project creation authorized independently based on cert level
Code has been partially cleaned up and commented
Underlying code now has the ability to delete as well as add db entries
Removed certs are actually deleted
Removed project relations are actually deleted
XML-based banner add rotation module
Path handler allowing banner ad to be inserted as SSI
"include" tag for including nested XML files
Assorted compiler warnings were fixed
Assorted improvements to makefile
Assorted segfault bugs fixed
Also, a few of the features found in my version have slowly made their way into the main version:

Usernames are passed to Apache and logged
Configurable pass-through directories
XML tag that renders differently based on user login state
Code to prevent duplicate replies to articles
External CSS used to configure color scheme
External CSS used to configure cert colors
Cert levels are configurable
Project list is alphabetized
Trust metric seeds are configurable
Removed much illegal HTML
DoS vulnerability in cookie parsing fixed
Version number note: The version number in the official mod_virgule has been stuck at "1.41" for a couple of years, so I've added a concatenated date string to the "official" version number. This version/date number is reflected in the Apache module registration to make it clear what version of code is being run on a given server.
