Since some time, I am working on a replacement of our current shell script based boot process to something more flexible, a similar solution to Apple's launchd, and Linux's systemd.

Since the switch to our package manager, there was no longer a way to influence the boot process at all. The only file you could change was the UserBootscript which is started only after Tracker and Deskbar; the whole system is already up at this point. The launch_daemon gives the power back to you, but also allow software you install to automatically be started on system boot as well. You can also even prevent system components from being started at all if you so wish. read more [Less]

Up until now, however, our debugger has lacked support for them, which could make debugging situations involving signals a less than convenient affair if one didn't already know what to look for. As of hrev49356, this has been rectified. read more [Less]

Hello again! As mentioned in last week's report, I planned to work on integration with IRC to allow the developers to get real-time updates on what the builder was doing, finishing the documentation, and then working on the logic that actually ...

Hello world! This week was rather slow: I've logged only 18 hours of contract time this week.

But despite that, I got a ton of stuff done, and the foundations for the following weeks' work are well laid. read more [Less]
