On a suggestion from Hiten Pandya, I’m going to try to note specific code commits that happen in the dragonfly.commit newsgroup. I’ve not been tracking them too carefully until now.
Apparently this server is colocated somewhere Hurricane Isabel touched down in the US – it was offline for some hours, but seems OK now.
No posts here September 5-7th, as I’ll be out.
I’ve always thought that one of the problems for the various BSD programs is that there’s a lot of good information that can only be found by digging through the various mailing lists. Nobody in their right mind wants to have to sort through the last 3 months of firstname.lastname@example.org just for a 5-second answer. So, blog software used to provide a ‘newsfeed’ may be useful.
I’m not a clever enough programmer to contribute code to DragonFly BSD, but I do read the main newsgroups for it. The DragonFly BSD project is small enough that a rolling readout of events may work. So, I’ve got this blog here to do just that. You too can watch me fumble technical terms!
My first goal is to read up and post. This layout just doesn’t work without an article history, or at least more long-winded articles.
