General To Do

Please add everything you feel noteworthy!



how to contribute


  • if no PTB is found (which means, that the file was timestamped within the last 3 hours), then show appropriate hint to explain this to users




  • replace document-type numbers with better names
  • gui version

thunderbird extension

scripts / cronjobs

  • create some kind of directory structure for PTBs (e.g. 0-1000, 1001-2000, .. ), to prevent too many files in /ptb/ !
  • creation of PTB-INFO files is not done in the best way yet. (ptb-info is created AFTER the PTB, and thus is not timestamped at the same time as the PTB itself. this could be done vice versa, so that the PTB-INFO is created first, then timestamped, and then the PTB is created. so the PTB-INFO doesn't contain the PTB, but the PTB the INFO block) .. seems that this would be better to me ..
