Some days of ment­or­ing…

In the last days I spend my free time with ment­or­ing Boris and the SoC stu­dents. Boris is maybe ready to fly solo now (and he already got im­pli­cit aproval for sev­eral things from me), but I will keep an eye on him from time to time for some more weeks.

The linuxolator SoC pro­ject pro­gresses faster now. We may have sup­port for TLS, TID and fu­texes in the com­ming week (this should al­low us to run FC4/​FC5 with a linux ker­nel ver­sion of 2.6.x, time will tell).

In the sound SoC pro­ject, Ryan cre­ated an user re­pos­it­ory. He is more com­fort­able with com­mit­ting “micro-​changes” to the user branch first to not spam the per­force mailing­list. I don’t think this mat­ters, but when he feels more com­fort­able this way, I don’t ob­ject. This makes it a little bit harder for me to fol­low, but I will nag him more of­ten for a status re­port then.

I also MFCed the fixes for Or­acle 10, it should work on 6–stable too now.
