m2k14 report: jasper@ on puppet, misc ports and Octeon

Contributed by tbert on from the master-of-puppets dept.

Jasper Lievisse Adriaanse (jasper@) managed to stay out of the libressl flensing, concentrating on some long standing bug and patch pushing:

When I arrived in Marocco I had a few small things I wanted to look at, which I naturally ended up spending most of my time on. While Puppet generally works great on OpenBSD, the port itself was in dire need of some cleaning and pushing patches upstream. While working on the port I finally sat down to iron out some (the last?) bugs in the "ensure => latest" patch we have to update packages to their latest version. Moving Puppet and all the related components of the stack to use Ruby 2.0 (instead of 1.9) concludes my work on Puppet for m2k14.

Aside from various cleanups (removal of a host of unused Erlang modules) and updates (SPICE-stack) I ported serverspec, had upower recognize the lid status on laptops and updated my WIP libffi update.

The other "small thing" I had on my list was to unbreak the linking phase of the OpenBSD/octeon RAMDISK kernel. This has yet to be committed.

Finally I'd like to thank the Université Cadi Ayyad for having us, and donators to the OpenBSD Foundation for making it happen; it's been a productive and sunny break from the cold European "spring".

Thanks for the report, Jasper!
