Hi Mario,

Have you tried asking for help from the planet devel list?


From what I understand, Planet does it own on-disk caching already: it 
really does look like you're trying to implement something that Planet 
already does internally.

There's a refactored version of "Planet Planet" called "Planet Venus" 
which may be helpful for you:


I would strongly recommend looking closely at it, as it at least has some 
docs you can read.

We can't tell what you're doing from this end.  Please make sure you're 
showing us what you mean when you run into difficulties --- showing code 
that demonstrates the problem is usually good.
