I was so happy to go back to Budapest for a hackathon. I've been there more times than I can count and it's an awesome city made even more awesome thanks to our host robert@ !
I arrived late the eve of the event along with other flying frogs (espie@, landry@, danj@). We were immediately brought to a Pub to drink an unreasonnable amount of Dreher... fuel up for next day!
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 very smoothly. We're still debating the future of GNOME on OpenBSD though. More 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 change etc).
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tokaji!
