0.2.2~b1 released

Written for timekpr by Savvas Radevic on 2008-10-19

I'm sorry I couldn't reach the co-developer (Even Nedberg) to approve the beta release, but I believe it's ripe enough for some beta testing! Even and I have done some basic testing, Charles Jackson (crjackson) has given it a swirl too, most of the stuff work as expected, features are automatically installed and activated.

Version 0.2.2~b1 (beta 1) is, as of now, released.
Note: I pushed the version up from 0.2.0 due to renaming it to beta for easier version tracking.

in these files:

The current file directory is:
- configuration at file /etc/timekpr.conf and folder /etc/timekpr/ (per user and .lock files)
- running files (.time .logout .late) at folder /var/lib/timekpr/
- various support files at folder /usr/share/python-support/timekpr/

You can start stop timekpr:
sudo /etc/init.d/timekpr start
sudo /etc/init.d/timekpr stop

You can run timekpr in foreground (not as a service daemon) so you can see any crash problems:
sudo /etc/init.d/timekpr stop
sudo timekpr

You can see what's going on in the background in the log file:
