SoC 2006 is on

SoC is just started but I’ve already begun to work on my projects. That i386 binary stuff was pretty simple, I have a working patch now. As you see, it is an improvement for the existing NOT_FOR_ARCHS / ONLY_FOR_ARCHS thing especially for i386 binary ports that fetch compiled i386 binaries. The current state of those port is a bit chaotic. If we enable them on ia64/amd64 they can be installed even if the compatibility layer isn’t available, thus we get unusable installed software. This new feature addresses this issue.
Anyway, as a beginner, I like working on the Ports Collection, the atmosphere is very good on #bsdports and the committers are very helpful to me.

It sounds like SK2 has recently been updated on this blog. But not fully configured. You MUST visit Spam Karma's admin page at least once before letting it filter your comments (chaos may ensue otherwise).
