(Disclaimer: this post is not about G.I.)
Josselin posted his thoughts about g-i, and given at least the first parts sound doable, I’m tempted to have a look at dealing with the needed udebs. Never touched anything like this before, but oh well, one learns every day. Time to learn a bit more about X11 as well.
It looks like generating a new
d-i’s trunk) wasn’t
that difficult, so hopefully once I’m done with a few udebs, it should
be possible to add them to this image and make sure those are usable,
at least when loaded manually.
Once that finished, gluing everything together is probably going to be another story, but hopefully that won’t be impossible.
Thanks to DSA (especially weasel),
kfreebsd-*now have DSA-admin’d
experimentalbuildds. Aurélien took care of setting them up; they managed to go through all
experimentalpackages, and bugs were filed accordingly. Some were just marked as
failed, usually with “Needs porting.”, especially when there were no regressions with respect to what was previously built on those architectures (as a reminder:
It looks like I’m going to stop dealing with Java at all: #557230. Thanks to Gabriele Giacone for taking care!
It also looks like I’m done with Python packages as well.
A new module-assistant package got uploaded, which should fix issues with newer kernel versions (ya can haz detailz). I’m wondering whether backporting it through backports.org from time to time would be of some help to anyone? It is (or should be) directly installable in a
lennyenvironment, but maybe people would like it to be directly available once the
lenny-backportsrepository enabled? Mail/wishlist bug welcome if you want it.
If you received some signatures from me lately… no, I wasn’t pretending I met you at LCA or whatever, but that was from Cáceres (Hi Penny!
;)). Key rollover being thought of.
