Life update

April 13, 2011 · Posted in Gentoo 

Yes I am still alive :)

Almost two months since my last blog entry, yet I have nothing really special to talk about. Life is moving forward, University courses almost finished and dissertation work has just started ( no progress so far which is quite frustrating ). I want to find some time to write about my experiences in UK so far, but it is not the time yet. Since most of you read my blog to get some updates regarding the Gentoo-land here it is:

AMD64 stable tree is in a good state ( w00t ). I am quite happy about that. Thanks to our ATs we try to keep our bug load below 50 :). We are constantly looking forward for new testers so feel free to contact us if you want to see your name in this page


The backlog for new developers is quite small. We currently have ~10 new developers in the queue and only half of them are not assigned to a recruiter yet.  So now it is the time to jump the gap.


Let me remind to you, once again, the concept of “Proxy  maintainers” which might not be known to you. As Dane recently posted, if you want to see your ebuilds on portage, feel free to contact me and I will commit it for you :)


I promise to find some more time to write about everything but I really have to back to studying. Cu soon!

    I have been saying for quite a while now that I would become a developer once the Portage migration to git has happened. I *really* don’t want to have to learn CVS, especially given that I had the foresight to avoid it 10 years ago when I first started using version control. Sadly, at least from where I’m sitting, it looks like hardly any progress has been made in the last year. I’m starting to think that I’ll have to do some of the work myself!

    Working with cvs is not such a big deal. You only need to know just a couple of commands as repoman takes care of everything
