Short downtime is moving to newer hardware, which means a change in IP and probably a short adjustment time as DNS updates come through. So, this site and mail will be unavailable for a little while, perhaps as soon as tonight.

Do sudo

Robert Nagy submitted patches to include ‘sudo‘in the base system for DragonFly. Reaction is generally positive. The reason I’m posting this is to point out that there are no criterion for what can be in the base system – what would you like to see?

How to get hooked

If you’ve been feeling an urge to submit patches to DragonFly, and don’t know when to start, Max Okumoto did a small writeup on how to get started (with followup).

Note that submitting documentation improvements is as simple as rewriting something and posting it on submit@, though it’s more helpful to download docs from CVS and patch.
