Next up in our series of g2k16 hackathon reports is this one from Martin Natano:
I arrived at the g2k16 hackathon with the expectation of working on
fusefs and indeed on the first day I've committed a diff to clean up the
attribute handling in the kernel and libfuse. Next on my list was a bug
that manifested itself by fuse mount points becoming unusable after
heavy usage of another mount point. Doh! I came up with a
to fix it. (Reviews welcome!) That fixed, I joined a group of hackers
for beer and proper burgers.
Back in the hackroom the next day I started ripping out write support
from our NTFS implementation. It has been previously disabled due to
issues, so there was no way to actually use it. Some space had to be
garbage collected for
The remaining time of the hackathon I was busy with something I
didn't plan for. It wasn't even on my todo list. Theo approached me
with the idea of implementing a new mount flag in order to reduce the
requirement of superuser privileges during the release process. We
discussed some details, then I fired up my editor and started hacking.
Enthusiasm has emerged! I managed to pack my work into a diff for
internal circulation; watch out for changes in sys_mount() and the build
It was an interesting experience to finally meet all the people I've
