NetBSD

I've had a fairly productive time hacking NetBSD in the last couple of weeks, including:

  • porting the kqueue infrastructure from FreeBSD, which is my first foray into serious kernel hacking for a long while, and things are looking positive.
  • setting up named to run chroot-ed as a lower privileged user, by default.
  • optimising the rc.subr shell code used by the rc system.

These are still works in progress, so not all of it has been committed to the main trunk.

Life

New York is interesting. Inger is enjoying the city (whereas I'm primarily stuck in the office during the weekday), but we're having a great time catching up with people and `doing the tourist thing' when we can. We still haven't decided if we'll move here yet (there are pros and cons); that's a decision we'll make when we've got home to Melbourne and spent a week or so considering our options.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
