There’s been enough this week I’ve already started next week’s BSD entry.

A good topic range this week.

All the text in the links lined up this week, which is mysteriously satisfying.

Several “how to do this” items this week, which I like.

Odd batch of links this week.

Your BSD-related fiction book of the week (year?  decade?) :’git commit murder‘ is out, set at a (fictional) BSD convention.

More thinking topics than version changes this week, which is interesting.

Slightly short this week, maybe because people are prepping for AsiaBSDCon?   I have plenty of links for tomorrow’s Lazy Reading.

I measure the success of In Other BSDs by how many different BSD flavors I can reference.  This is a good week.

Lots of storage this week.

 

Near-term dports work

Rimvydas Jasinskas posted an extended description of what’s happening with dports.  There’s a significant xorg reformatting coming in ports, which is going to be absorbed into dports, but it may take some time.  There’s also an odd loss of commit rights for John Marino, who commits (frequently!) to both DragonFly and FreeBSD.  (His followup)  This all translates to some upcoming transition time for dports to accommodate these changes.

Note that if you are using dports binaries, especially on DragonFly 4.6 release, this won’t really affect you; the way dports is set up, binary sets always work.  It is interesting to hear about future work, in any case.

A lot of the real content this week is buried in the comments, strangely.

Note the end this week of pc98, the most focused of niche platforms.
