The next general Hackathon is just a few weeks away. OpenBSD started the tradition of Hackathons, and they've paid off with tons of code. Expect good things this time, too!
In order to make the most of developers' time, let's make sure they have toys to get working and laptops to hack with. Please read on for Theo's message to misc@…
From: Theo de Raadt <deraadt@…> Subject: Hackathon is coming up Date: 2007-04-27 3:50:18 The annual Calgary hackathon is coming up in a bit less than a month. As usual, this is a good time to remind people that developers need toys that they can fix/support, so maybe everyone can take a peek at http://www.openbsd.org/want.html and see if there is anything they should send to us to make the week-long event better. If you spot anything you can supply, it is worth while talking to the developer who asked for it, and to me as well. It may be better to send the equipment direct to me, so that the developer does not have to bring it to Calgary in their suitcases (maybe that means they can bring a bit more clean underwear). As always, I want to remind people that this is a good time to get extra laptops (via me) to developers who live in poorer countries or who face difficulties with fascist border guards. If you have any machines to contribute, drop me a note. There are always developers struggling with crappy laptops. Thanks.
