I’ve decided I’m going to start posting a sort of weekly newsletter (I’m not committing to weekly though) merely to document anything I feel important that happened, or is about to, but isn’t quite important enough for it’s own post.
RA (ra– on #funtoo) or firstname.lastname@example.org submitted quite a few patches this week including 1 that fixes many of my major borkage on non-latin1 changelog breaks. He’s become a regular contributor and I’d like to thank him.
perl-5.10 will be unmasked this evening, if you haven’t read it yet, read my post on upgrading, you’ll need it, because this is more than just an install and forget, other packages need to be rebuilt, and perl-cleaner revdep-rebuild doesn’t find them all. Good news is I’ve been running 5.10 since the beginning of the month no problems since the beginning.
I pushed samba 3.2.7 into the tree this week, gentoo’s been sitting on it for a while, it’s hard masked, but seems to build fine, I don’t operate on a windows network though so can’t say how well it works.
