Dia formatter was never working?

    Hello. I am trying to produce Dia output:

    happydoc -F dia raporty.py

    And I see long error ending with:

      File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/happydoc/hdformatter/hdformatter_file.py", line 139, in getOutputNameForFile
        extension = self.getFilenameExtension()
    AttributeError: DiaFormatter instance has no attribute 'getFilenameExtension'

    The problem is - that function was never implemented in Dia formatter! I tried even version 1.6 and this bug is still there. So how it is possible Dia formatter was ever working?

    Is HappyDoc still developed? I was browsing CVS but I've seen no changes.

        happydoc -F dia -T dia raporty.py

      There is also a dia docset which drives the formatter.

      New development on happydoc is going on in the HappyDoc3 module in CVS.  HappyDoc 3.0 will be mostly redesigned and rewritten to eliminate several fundamental flaws in the earlier versions.

      Hope that helps,
