The king is dead, long live the king!

As we here at rPath are trying to embrace standards [1], I got to work on CIM again. Kind of a deja-vu since, in a previous life, I started to write Cimbiote – a way to write CIM providers in python.

Cimbiote did not go anywhere in the past 2 years and a half, so I dusted it off and started to play with it. As it turns out, major pieces were missing: the ability to create references, support for associations etc.

When trying to add reference support, I found out from the sblim mailing list that there is still hope in the world. Today I finished packaging cmpi-bindings=contrib.rpath.org@rpl:2 and wrote a simple plugin that does not do much, but was enough to prove far superior to cimbiote.

[1] You, in the back row, stop chuckling. We all know that standards are wonderful things, as Tigger would say.

    In the enterprise, the standards embrace you!

    See, with a non-sucking standard like YAML you can’t even represent the end of a bad joke!
