k, 2017-11-14 00:53
A new p2k17 hackathon report has arrived, this one from Florian Obser, who writes: One of these days I should probably just put "lives here" into the file on cvs when it comes to hackathons in Berlin. My very first hackathon was b2k13 and I attended u2k15 as an emergency hackathon, on to number 3!

p2k17 Hackathon Report: Anthony J. Bentley on firmware, games and securing pkg_add runs

p, 2017-11-10 13:46

The next p2k17 report comes from Anthony J. Bentley (bentley@):

Back in April, Stefan Sperling (stsp@) asked if anyone was interested in using Atheros’s freely licensed sources to build firmware for athn(4) USB wireless cards. I never saw any takers on the mailing list, so when coming up with ideas to work on this hackathon I decided to give it a shot.

The next p2k17 report comes from Sebastian Reitenbach (sebastian@): As not a local Berliner, but one who lives nearby, it would be a shame to not to come to a Hackathon in Berlin. Unfortunately I only could make it the first three days.

p2k17 Hackathon report: Christian Weisgerber on random devices, build failures and gettext

cs, 2017-11-09 18:14

The latest hackathon report to come in today came from Christian Weisgerber (naddy@):

“You're German, you must know Berlin, right?” “Uh, here's the list of European capital cities I live geographically closer to: Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Paris, Bern, (Vaduz), Prague.”

Without any splashy projects in the pipeline for p2k17, I went to work on what can be described as janitorial tasks.

p2k17 Hackathon report: Jeremy Evans on ruby progress, postgresql and webdriver work

sze, 2017-11-08 08:21
The p2k17 hackathon reports keep flowing in, here's one from Jeremy Evans (jeremy@): I had a very productive hackathon and worked on a lot of different areas.

I started out p2k17 by removing ruby 1.8, 2.1, and 2.2 from the ports tree, along with some ruby 1.8-specific ports. I also removed some old ruby database drivers that are no longer used by anything in the tree.

Paul Irofti (pirofti@) on hotplugd(8), math ports, xhci(4) and other kernel advancements

k, 2017-11-07 23:52
Here is a new p2k17 hackathon report from Paul Irofti (pirofti@), who writes: There is plenty to do in the OpenBSD project, but not very much if you can not put a sustained effort of concentrating on a task for at least 4 hours straight for a period of at least a week. That is why, for us time-impaired people, hackathons are a great way of feeling involved in the project as a full-time employee putting in a lot of extra hours would.

I've been to germany lots of time, but never to Berlin. I'm actually old enough that my first german foray happen before 1989.

It was interesting. Very wide city, with lots of spaces everywhere.

The p2k17 hackathon has concluded, and we have our first report. Matthias Kilian (kili@) wrote in:

Berlin is a strange place. Even if only 90 minutes east from my place (travelling via train), it seems to be in a completely different time zone. So i entered the hack room even later than during previous ports hackathons (after missing the first day completely).

In a message to tech@, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) wrote:

We intend to only build syspatches for one release in the future. Errata patches will continue to be generated for 2 releases. The reasoning is syspatch on 2 architectures for 2 releases requires 4 machines, and therefore twice the handholding. It seems better to keep the time available to start doing syspatches for more architectures.

This can be seen with the latest TCB errata, for which there are patches for versions 6.1 and 6.2, but a binary update only for 6.2.

You might have been noticing the amount of commits to ports regarding autoconf and nested functions and asking yourself… what the hell is this all about?

The next hackathon reports comes from Ken Westerback (krw@), who writes:

Take a university Computer Science department that thinks a room full of OpenBSD hackers is a relaxing change from a room full of students, add spartan residence accommodations to motivate said hackers to maximize time in the hackroom, mix in a local host excited to host the crowd of hackers in his backyard for dinner and you get an exciting, productive hackathon.

t2k17 Hackathon Report: My first time (Aaron Bieber)

cs, 2017-08-24 20:35
The next t2k17 hackathon report comes from first time hackathon participant Aaron Bieber, who writes:

I have been an OpenBSD developer for just over five years now. This was my first hackathon.

I wasn't sure what to expect. I knew that there would be around 40 developers, there would be hacking on OpenBSD and that I would get to meet and work with the people who have made OpenBSD what it is today.
