NetBSD website: In progress: client software (pkgsrc package) that tracks changes in benchmark performance (using commonly available OS,VM,FS benchmarks) in a machine as the OS is upgraded. Data is collected and posted to the website, where reports are generated. Reports are of interest to kernel developers. Idea put forth by Tim Rightnour.

Footnote: My home page is now proxy-ing (and adjusting the links) of this page. If this poses a load problem, please contact me, and I will be happy to establish some caching. Right now I'm assuming that that advogato.org is interested in any exposure/hits. (The "proxy" is just a lynx --source | sed, footnote to a footnote).

Volunteers Needed is a search of NetBSD's projects server. If you have spare time on your hands and know either a natural language or computer language, give it a click.

Projects: Learning Perl::Flas h for work, as well as XML.
Distributed kernel benchmark database/web application/client software for NetBSD's website.
WeeHours (as always).

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
