The next b2k16 hackathon report comes from Daniel Jakots, who writes:
This was my second hackathon (after p2k16). I was looking forward to
it as I had a really great time in Nantes.
The week before the hackathon I worked on the py-setuptools
update. I wanted to update it before the hackathon so in case of any
problems, I was sure to be available to fix them. Most of the python
ports depend on this software, so it's quite critical. Two python
ports broke with this update but fixing them was simple. It was
finally committed on Saturday so I was ready for the hackathon.
In Budapest, I spend nearly all my time on python ports. I updated a
bunch of low hanging fruits found with portroach. I finally
committed the update for py-flask that I did back in June because it
wasn't committed at the time for some reasons. I spend a bit of time
to update scapy. Scapy is used in a bunch of OpenBSD regress tests so
it's good to have it up to date.
A year ago, I tried to add some python3 flavors to
net/py-ripe.atlas.*. I sent diffs to add the flavor to the
dependencies and for these ports. The diffs for the dependencies went
in but the diffs for py-ripe.atlas weren't committed. Florian@ (the
maintainer) sent a couple of diffs to update the ports and some
dependencies to a newer version. I reviewed them and took another shot
at adding the py3 flavor. This time, it went in.
During the week, I had the occasion to talk with other hackers I
usually don't talk to, so it was great to meet each others. This week
was really cool and as usual I'm looking forward the next hackathon.
Thanks to all who made it possible!
Thank you for the report and the fine ports work, Daniel!
Update: Daniel has also written a blog post about the hackathon which expands somewhat on this report.
