Accidental theme of video links, which I would not have expected for a BSD summary.
Last minute this week. Everyone is inside except me working two jobs again. Dumb, but I do enjoy the work.
Aaron LI managed to graft FreeBSD code history onto the DragonFly BSD git repository, and he’s documented how he did it. So, you can follow DragonFly code all the way back to 2003, and then FreeBSD code all the way back to… I’m not sure how far back it goes, but it’s in his merged copy.
I have multiple BSD based systems to update, reboot, and hopefully not physically visit in the next week or so.
A bit short this week; I think everyone’s been occupied with other issues.
rcorder-visualize.sh draws the dependencies for rc scripts using dot. Originally in NetBSD, then in FreeBSD, now in DragonFly.
Throwing all the links I can out there.
No theme this week cause I think I hit everything.
UNIX history as an accidental theme this week.
Update: NetBSD 9.0 is released.
libfetch has a vulnerability, now fixed on DragonFly in current and release, plus it also affects FreeBSD.
There’s a lot of releases happening.
BUGs BUGs BUGs this week. I’ll make sure to note the events again when they get closer, too.
Unofficial theme: conventions. There’s lots of options this year; you should go. If you are reading this, you’re the right demographic to enjoy one.
Sometimes you get 2 nice tips: I like seeing this NetBSD->FreeBSD->DragonFly cross pollination in this commit, and also now I know I can fsck a FAT volume on BSD.
3rd bonus: that last sentence sounds terribly rude.
No theme evolved, but lots more links this week.
It was an abnormally quiet week – probably because of the Christmas holiday, or maybe because I cleared my BSD link backlog last week.
