I suddenly can't remember if I pad my dates with zeros. Your unrelated link of the week: The creepiest animatronic work I've seen yet.  (via Orbital Operations)  
BSDTalk 239 is 55 minutes of talk with Baptiste Daroussin at vBSDCon 2013 about 'pkgng' on FreeBSD.  The BSDTalk post doesn't mention it, but it is the same pkg tool that DragonFly uses, so Baptiste's plans are relevant to DragonFly too.  (I haven't had a chance to listen to the podcast yet so I don't know how much he talks about DragonFly, specifically.)
Timezones are a human invention to describe the natural world, so they are changed according to human whims.  That's a grand way to note this change in timezones that is global but I noted in a DragonFly commit of tzdata2014b - look at the last entry.
I've been away because of some home construction taking up time, but this has actually been happening for a while: plenty of USB device drivers have been getting ported in to work with the new USB4BSD stack.  My links for that are not comprehensive.
One of the requirements to get NSS/LDAP working on (most) any unixlike system is to have dynamic binaries; meaning they are dependent on various libraries to run.  Since you're talking about programs for login when you're talking about NSS/LDAP, that means if the libraries aren't available, you can't log in.  DragonFly has static binaries just to avoid that problem. Francois Tigeot proposed switching to dynamic binaries and building a /rescue directory with static backups, as is the case with I think FreeBSD and NetBSD.  If you follow the thread, it looks like the best path is to use initrd instead.  Initrd stands for INITial Ram Disk, and is the first volume the computer sets up to boot from BIOS.  Since initrd gives the computer enough space to load all the needed modules (like Hammer2...), it works without making the computer dependent on various libraries or having a bloated /rescue directory. (Someone correct me if I have the details wrong.)  As long as we're talking about things that would help DragonFly in a larger environment, can someone work on a VM balloon memory driver, too?
Aaaaaaaaa link overflow! Your unrelated link of the week: Space Replay.  A very good use of an Arduino board.  (via)
I have a list of commits I've saved between the various BSDs of licenses getting corrected to the 2-clause BSD license; that would definitely be a good cross-BSD project to sync.
BSDNow episode 029 is up containing a full slate of material.  There's an interview of Gleb Kurtsou, along with a PEFS tutorial and several other items that are new to me.
If you noticed the lack of a GUI DVD image for the 3.6 release of DragonFly, I posted a followup note on the users@ list that talks about the steps to get X installed.  It's not much work, with pkg set up.
Sepherosa Ziehau has an IPv6 patch for you to try.  What's it do?  I think it improves performance under multiple streams of traffic, but that's from looking at the code and totally guessing.
A lot of this was done early; last week had a lot of interesting stuff turn up.  Maybe because we're coming out of a extreme winter in the northern hemisphere, and people are feeling a bit more energetic? Your unrelated link of the week: The Conet Project, recordings of numbers stations, at the Internet Archive. (via the Orbital Operations newsletter) Bonus timewaster: 2048.  (via multiple places)
Another week with lots of links.
In part because I asked him, Sepherosa Ziehau benchmarked 10G ix(4) with 2 ports on DragonFly.  The results?  Good, both for bandwidth and for CPU usage.
Uh oh, I don't get the pun this time.  Anyway, the newest BSDNow episode is an interview with Eric Turgeon of GhostBSD, and a disk concatenation tutorial for NetBSD and a tutorial that isn't uploaded yet.  (Wait, now I get it.)
