The filter in the bottom of the kettle came off during cooling. Fixing this let to at least 30 min. longer for the hops to remain in the hot liquid and quite some oxidation as well.

Pointyhat busy

After some time of looking around on pointyhat and uploading finished packages, it’s time to get my hands dirty and do some real runs. Mark Linimon, who has been running the last couple of runs and sending out the famous “krismails” (emails informing the maintainer/submitter/committer that a port doesn’t work on some combination of architecture and branch), also created some nice scripts that will help analyze the results. Especially the packagestats page is going to be very helpful.

Yesterday, I started the i386-7 build to compare the builds logs to i386-6 and see if any of the work done in -CURRENT has broken any 3rd party software lately. Gabor also finished one of the major parts of his Summer of Code project and sent a patch for DESTDIR support.
This will be tested on 6-exp with DESTDIR unset. This should be a NOOP, but as this is quite an
intrusive change, it does require thorough testing, especially because there might be some edge cases noone would think about. The next step will be another -exp run with DESTDIR set to e.g. /opt. This will probably break a number of ports that try to outsmart the ports infrastructure, and they will need to be fixed individually. We’ll know more in a couple of days when the pointyhat cluster has finished building the ports.

New ports committer: Jose Alonso Cardenas Marquez

If I’m not mistaken, we have gotten our first peruvian committer. Please welcome Jose Alonso Cardenas Marquez to the ranks of the ports committers!

Grøn Koncert

It’s July, the grass is green, the sky is blue and it’s time for Grøn Koncert. Although it is still held at the same time of the year, it seems this year it is time to break up with some good old traditions. This year, it will be on a Saturday while it always was on Sunday in Århus before. Also, Thomas Helmig will be closing this years festival, an honour that has always been alternating between TV2 and D.A.D. The good thing is, I will be home early ;)

Only at a telco…

…is there ethernet in the kitchen.
