Still catching up on links.
Overflow from two weeks running, cause of travel.
Overflow that I couldn’t catch up to before last weekend’s In Other BSD’s posting time. I try to always have these by 9 AM Eastern time Saturday. (Same for Lazy Reading on Sunday) I mentally imagine everyone sitting down with a drink and nothing else to do but click links, those mornings. At least, I hope that’s what it is.
A lot of this was early overflow posted ahead; I’ve been on the road.
Some overflow, and thank goodness cause I don’t have a day without work this week.
Lots of NetBSD links this week relative to usual.
Update: how did I miss this? PkgSrcCon 2018 is happening now in Berlin, and there’s a livestream. (via)
Very much last-minute; compiled 20 minutes before bed Friday night.
A full slate of BSDs this week.
Thank goodness for overflow from last week, because I haven’t had time to read.
Already overflowed to next week.
John Marino has assembled a new packaging and building system. It’s called Ravenports, and he wrote a short intro, and has a filled-out site to go look at.
This is big news, in part because he knows what he’s doing (John worked on dports and created synth) and because it’s cross-platform. The prior work on synth is part of the reason DragonFly works so well under pressure – the “build everything as fast as possible as complete as possible” strategy makes a great stress test.
There’s no need to change software management strategies yet. It can be used at the same time as dports, so it doesn’t necessarily change anything for the next DragonFly release.
Lots of links this week – so many I’ve already started next week’s post.
A good chunk of this is overflow from last week.
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.
