Not much free time…

I am work­ing for a new cli­ent now, where I have more things to take care about. This re­duces a bit the pos­sib­il­ity to write some in­ter­est­ing things here.

There are some things I would like to doc­u­ment here, some more ex­per­i­ences with An­droid and cus­tom cer­ti­fic­ates, some things about Sol­ar­is, and oth­er stuff. Un­for­tu­nately the day has only 24 hours.

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.
