There was not much to tell in the last months. I was busy with moving and the pregnancy of my wife (ok, she was more busy with this than I was…).
So the recent updates are, that I took some time to commit some of my patches to SVN. Most of them are in my SVN user area in various branches. The interesting ones may be deskjail and linuxaio. The first one allows to run your desktop in a jail. The second one gives async I/O for the linuxulator.
There’s also some other stuff. Feel free to have a look.
It also seems that the we may see the Fedora 8 infrastructure landing in the ports collection “soon”. I have the impression that Boris just waits for the complete unfreeze of the ports collection. The last patch I’ve reviewed looked very good. There are some loose ends, like switching it on as the default linux base for FreeBSD-current for example, but those are things which I prefer to do later than in the same commit. First let it be there for a while and let curious users test it a little bit more. If everything is ok, we can switch the default linux base to F8 in ‑current.
