Archive for the ‘FreeBSD’ Category
Just because life is not complicated enough, I opened up a can of worms by proposing a new ports category for the internationalisation/localisation effort.
It is my hopes to move all the *i18n* and *l10n* ports out of the misc category to their new home.
Please, please, please, if you have an opinion, pro or con to this proposal, check out my original post, http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2009-June/055412.html
and reply to it via the ports@ mailing list.
Just to reiterate a posting by miwi,http://miwi.bsdcrew.de/2009/06/fresh-blood-for-kde-freebsd-team/, we have added two more members to the FreeBSD KDE team, newly minted Ports Committer Kris Moore of PCBSD, and Dima “Red Fox” Panov.
We have been working diligently to keep to the KDE beta schedule. The work we do is being stored in a repository, http://websvn.pcbsd.org, for inclusion to the FreeBSD Ports tree.
If you are interested in testing, you can read more at http://freebsd.kde.org
I finally got around the localisation issue for the German and Japanese upates and committed them to the ports tree.
Please use them, and enjoy!
P.S. Pav, officially not abandoned now
I finally managed to get Citrix 11 committed to the repository as net/citrix_xenapp. The Citrix 10 client will be left as net/citrix_ica for a little while yet.
Please be aware that the Xen App client requires linux-f8 emulation to install and run. Please check out my wiki page for further instructions.
I still need to do some localisation testing for the German and Japanese versions.
P.S. Pav the repocopies still aren’t abandoned
Short story long, I was privileged to meet Greg Larkin, glarkin@, at BSDCan 2009. We were chatting during lunch time one day and he says something like, “I really should mentor somebody”. I told him I would take him up on the offer in the near future.
That moment arrived, to co-mentor avl@.
Congratulations Alexander, may your pointyhats be elusive
Dennis Herrmann worked very hard since receving his port commit bit, and today miwi and I set him free.
Good luck Dennis, and remember, I like chocolate chip cookies
My brain hurts.
I sat in sessions today, and hung on the speaker’s every word, trying to cram in as much as I possibly could.
Epic fail. SEGFAULT. Core dumped, brain fried.
I will be in Ottawa in time for lunch on day one of the DevSummit. I will attempt to blog some of of the events. Stay tuned
Just in time for the 7.2 freeze, I got word from portmgr@ that I could mentor Gabo Pali, pgj@ in ports, with gabor@ as co-mentor.
I first hooked up with pgj@ when I submitted a PR to add a light bulb joke in the FreeBSD FAQ. Since that time, pgj@ wanted to wade into the ports world by helping out with Haskell. I have been reviewing his work since the new year, and decided to make it legit early in April.
Enjoy the enhanced commit privs, Gabor, and please don’t break the INDEX!
I am fortunate to be co-mentor with Martin Wilke, to learn Dennis the subtle nuances of being a Ports Committer.
Don’t think of Dennis as +1 to the German World Domination Team, think of him as a citizen of the world. Of course, should Dennis receive is first Pointyhat, I will declare him German, and Martin will declare him West German :>
Congratulations, Dennis, may your Pointyhats be elusive!
