It has been awhile since I blogged, so I thought I would finally post some status updates.

A couple of weeks ago, Erwin Lansing popped up a window in IRC, he wanted to know how life was in my neck of the woods. The red flags should have went up, but they did not. By the end of the conversation, he had me convinced that I would be a good candidate for portmgr-secretary, a position he held for some time. Turns out, he accepted a position on the Board of Directors for the FreeBSD Foundation, and decided he needed to lighten his load. I accepted the position. Erwin tells me it will only a couple of hours a week of my time…

So in my very short tenure as portmgr-secretary, I have been fortunate enough to send acknowledgement emails to new ports committers, and announce in wake of FreeBSD 7.3 being released, and that the ports tree is wide open for commits!

Stay tuned, I hope to keep up Erwin’s tradition of portmgr related blog posts.
