Bugzilla brought in

Jeroen Ruigrok is setting up Bugzilla for tracking bugs/requests for DragonFly. As part of the process, there’s some 6,000 (!) items brought over from FreeBSD-4. No link yet…

Things to come

In a thread about booting media, Matt Dillon noted he was going to:

  • Look at Jeff Hsu’s TCP thread code
  • implement variant symlinks
  • start VFS messaging and environments

VFS will make a number of other things – especially a new port system – possible.

Flames bad, info good

On the freebsd-hackers mailing list, a slight flamewar erupted over discussion of checkpointing code from DragonFly. Amidst the dumbness that normally ensues in a flamewar, there’s some interesting descriptions on what work has been done/will be done on DragonFly. Check out the archive, mostly in the “FreeBSD mail list etiquette” thread. Matt Dillon’s posts here, here, and here are all info-packed.
