Meeting at Linux.conf.au in Perth

2013/12/21

I’m again lucky to be able to fly in a plane for 20+ hours the first week of January to attend Linux.conf.au ! (And of course the 20+ hours of fly back ;-))

I’ll talk on Monday 06 January 2014 during the miniconf dedicated to Developer, Testing, Release and Continuous integration Automation of project-builder.org and the idea of Continuous packaging.

This has been possible only thanks to HP‘s support, its Open Source investment council, and the kindness of our VP & Deputy General Counsel, Cloud Computing and Open Source Eileen Evans who continues to support my travels at many Open Source conferences, and should be greatly thanked for that.

I’ll make a new version of the tool available to celebrate this, not that a lot has changed, but some fixes should be made available as packages, and it’s a long time since I published the last one. In fact, for me the tool is pretty stable and usable. I recently added git-svn support, as svk is broken with latest perl versions such as on my Mageia 3 😦 So learning slowly git, and still not liking it that much, but I have not a lot of other choices.

I still need to improve rpmbootstrap for the latest Fedora which changed their mirroring structure. Hopefully this will be done on time.

And as I’m on it, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all readers !

Visit me at HP Discover in Barcelona

2013/12/09

Again a quiet active month. I’m just back from one week for an internal event in Houston US, and I’m now in Barcelona for HP Discover EMEA 13. So if you are around and want to talk about Linux, Open Source or early music, go to Pavillon 5, booth 5530. I’m demonstrating the newly announced IC4RHEV which is officially announced during the event. You can also see it on Red Hat booth if you prefer to talk to the real guys 😉

I took time during my travels to improve the 3.2 version of MondoRescue, but as expected, it will require some tests to ensure the new memory management modifications are stable. Hopefully a beta next week.
