Re: plan for freebsd-i386
Thought I'd send an update with my plans for the freebsd-i386 port.
Short term (this week):
* Clean up patches. Fix changelogs, remove obsolete changes, and
conditionalize anything that needs it.
* Finish fixing some packaging bugs in freebsd packages. Mostly broken
Medium term (within the next month or so):
1. Get my build machine running native, instead of in a chroot. I'd
also put it somewhere without NAT, so that I can run services.
2. Get space in the archive. Based on Anthony Towns' announcement about
woody, I think this should be possible now.
3. Merge patches. I would like to try to merge with netbsd and openbsd
ports first, to reduce duplication of effort.
4. Setup an autobuilder
5. See how much builds without patching. :)
Long term (when it happens):
1. Do something about installation. Probably the hardest part of the port...
2. Possibly switch to -CURRENT. Depends on stability and how long it
takes to release sarge.
3. Hopefully release with sarge.
Have you any plans for X? I will wait if you do have plans, but if not I
will roll my own so that I can use the debian-freebsd as my main system
[and hence report useful bugs].
