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.
