Thanks for the report, Antoine!
First task of this hackathon was for Jasper and I to upgrade to GNOME 3.22.1
(version 3.22.2 hit the ports tree since). As usual I already updated the core
libraries a few days before so that we could start with a nice set of fully
updated packages. It ended up being the fastest GNOME update ever, it all went

and more features require systemd interfaces and without a replacement it may
not make sense to keep it around. Implementing these interfaces requires time
which Jasper and I don't really have these days... Anyway, we'll see.
Since it was a ports hackathon, I also took a small hike under /usr/ports/ to
fix^update^clean^remove stuff. Nothing fancy, just the regular maintenance.
On the non-ports topic, I kept working on syspatch(8) which has been enabled in
current since (but not yet useful obviously, since it runs on release). If all
goes well and I don't destroy my fellow developers setups, syspatch *might* be
enabled for 6.1 as a technology preview (as in, no promises, interface may
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tokaji!
