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.
Finally I used some free time to commit the VIA Envy24HT driver of Konstantin Dimitrov to -current. He told me it supports some soundcards which ALSA doesn’t support. Nice! 🙂
Please test and say “Thank you!” to him.
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.
