Yet another hackathon: pkgsrc-wip hackathon
Hello pkgsrc users and developers!
I think everyone knows the pkgrsc-wip project, which aims at providing a
and learning place for (future) pkgsrc developers.
Unfortunately wip also became a place for unmaintained and stalled packages.
We believe that those packages could be very useful and worth some work to make
them ready to pkgsrc import. This is why I write this letter.
We would like to hold hackathons dedicated to pkgsrc-wip packages. I used plural
because it's a huge amount of packages to work on, so I'm pretty sure it will
than a weekend to sort them out.
The wip packages' number has about 20% of than of those in pkgsrc, so making it
closer to 10% would be a success.
We will start on 8th-9th of March (this weekend) and continue on 15th-16th.
As on the previous hackathons, we will be on the channel #netbsd-code on
We have a wiki page at wiki.netbsd.se to share ideas and progress:
We also need testers for various platforms, so don't hesitate to join us even
if you think
you couldn't work on the packages directly.
See you on the hackathon!
