RIP, Itojun

Jun-ichiro “itojun” Itoh Hagino died on October 29th – a surprise and shock to many. Itojun was a major force behind IPv6 support in all the BSDs, and well-known for his patience and skill. Notes are showing up with more information here, here, and here. (Thanks, Hasso.)

10 years of pkgsrc

It’s the 10 year anniversary of pkgsrc, and to celebrate, has a page with some history and a large variety of interviews with various people involved with it in one way or another, including folks in other BSD projects that were influenced by this work. (Thanks, Joerg Sonnenberger and Mark Weinem for the heads-up)
