Script your build, no really! Posted 2007.03.20 20:05 PDT (#)

Thanks Mark Edgington for finding and alerting me to an error in the code behind my Cairo Tutorial. Somewhere between when I originally wrote it and used it to generate it, and when I uploaded it, I introduced an ordering problem that caused the Mask diagram to fail to draw. The trivial difference just required moving the call to super(Mask, self).__init__(*args) to the end of Mask.__init__. For anyone reading the tutorial: don't fear; no informative parts have changed.

This simple error has been sitting there since I originally wrote the code some nine months ago. Even a small project like this tutorial could have benefited from continuous integration.
