Twice a year, OpenCSW maintainers and contributors get together to work on packages, share experiences and discuss the future direction of the project. In this year’s winter camp at the University of Zurich the following issues were addressed:

  • Catalog cleanup
    During the cleanup 441 packages were removed. This process will be repeated every six months.
  • Introduce Buildbot for upstream projects
    To give upstream better feedback on the Solaris compatibility for upstream projects we now provide continuous builds for interested projects. One of the first projects to benefit from it was PCRE which had issues on Solaris in version 8.34. The recently released packages for PCRE 8.35 were a result of giving upstream constant feedback on the development state.
  • Presentation of new mirror infrastructure
    In the future, people will be redirected to their closest mirror using only one URL. This will be based on MirrorBrain.
  • Changes to the website
    The Website has been updated to the latest WordPress release and the layout of announcements was adjusted. Additionally there were some thoughts about a new website.

The next camp will be in the summer/fall.

Technical Summer Camp 2010: Paris

August 13th, 2010

The OpenCSW developers are about to gather for the next Camp session.  This time, it’s just outside Paris in Puteaux, graciously hosted by William.  In a weekend blitz during spanning 14th and 15th of August, several project members will be hacking on packages and other supporting code/tools.  Additionally, there are a handful of important topics on the agenda that will benefit greatly from face-to-face discussions.

You can watch the live feed or follow things on twitter.

Technical Wintercamp 2009: Munich

June 21st, 2010

It’s almost the time of the year again when we OpenCSW maintainers gather for our half-yearly technical camp (this time to be held in Paris). A welcome occasion to discuss and coordinate current issues and also to meet up with fellow maintainers in person. Not to speak of the opportunity to visit a foreign capital city, as that’s where one of our maintainers usually hosts the event. But I am getting ahead of myself, time to catch up on the happenings of the last camp, which took place in Lenggries near Munich, Germany earlier this year. » Read more: Technical Wintercamp 2009: Munich

The technical summercamp 2009 took place in Oslo on the 22. and 23. August 2009. We had a lot to talk about as you see on the Agenda which resulted in the minutes from the summercamp. As you can see the location Trygve got for us was deep in the woods and had a marvellous view:
