  1. The API is not returning 403s where we're not allowed to access the a…

    …rticle
    
    This also removes the odd case of returning None to represent a 404 and turns
    that into another exception.

  1. Revert "Change the host used for API requests"

    This doesn't seem to be necessary - I guess because the new version
    is out of beta now.
    
    This reverts commit 87511bc.

  1. Increase the time between API calls

    This is in the hope of avoiding the 403 errors that we sometimes get.

  1. (Finally) add a masthead image to the generated periodical

    Thanks to Marco Arment for describing how to do this in a comment
    on this Stack Overflow answer of mine:

  1. We only need to include identical image data once

    It turns out that the advertisement images that are delivered
    with the Guardian's API are very often byte-for-byte identical.
    So, it makes sense to only store these once.  This produces a
    great saving in the size of the final book - e.g. on today
    (a Saturday) it means 3.3M rather than 7.7M.

  1. Include description in article list entry.

    Finally! After 6 hours of trying different ways I dreamt up that
    might result in getting the article description to appear in the
    Kindle's list I've cracked it!
    
    Closes GH-3

  2. Instead of gd and ImageMagick, use PIL for creating the cover image

    Thanks to Dominic Evans for this suggestion.

  1. Make the cover image font slightly smaller

    (In fact, this cover image isn't actually seen any more.)

  1. Add first guess attempt at generating periodical.

    Kindle periodical format isn't well documented, but this seems to be
    generating an approximation of what we need.

  2. Remove msttcorefonts dependency.

    Add simple fc-match call for Helvetica (original Guardian font afaik) rather
    than hardcoded Arial.

  1. Merge remote branch 'origin/master'

  2. kindlegen exits with error if there are warnings

    The better solution would be to fix these warnings, which are almost
    always about unresolvable links - these could just be removed when
    processing the article body.
