g2k14: Antoine Jacoutot on GNOME, rc(8) and /etc cleanup
Contributed by pitrh on Sun Aug 10 12:46:18 2014 (GMT)
from the leading by example dept.

Antoine Jacoutot writes in with this report from the g2k14 hackathon:

Finally a hackathon where I did not have to spend 90% of my time under ports/x11/gnome \o/ (but of course, I had to cd into it anyway...). Besides some regular tweaks and updates in there, I worked on the MODULE to make it more generic and allow non-GNOME ports to benefit from some of its goodies (like xdg triggers and such) without ending up with unneeded build dependencies or things being only relevant to GNOME.

phessler: emergency g2k14 hackathon
Contributed by phessler on Thu Aug 7 16:37:18 2014 (GMT)
from the you know it's urgent dept.

Longtime Undeadly editor, Peter Hessler (phessler@) writes in:

With the g2k14 hackathon starting on tuesday, I saw the commits and chatter from the hackathon. sadly, my original plan was to stay at work mostly since I am out of vacation days for the year. Thursday morning, I see that not only were a few more hackathon shirts being printed for attendees that wanted more, but also last-minute flights to Ljubljana were actually affordable. I nudged claudio@, who works at the desk next to me "hey, want to go to the hackathon for the weekend?"

Contributed by tbert on Sun Aug 3 05:54:09 2014 (GMT)
from the sandwich makes itself dept.

Christian Weisgerber wrote in with this report from g2k14:

I updated the gettext port, of course. What'd you think I'd do at a hackathon?

The most interesting thing I worked on at g2k14 started out with a question: Why exactly do we run the fake step as root? (Hint: FreeBSD's corresponding stage infrastructure does not.)
