Some Impressions from Hackweek

July 21st, 2009 by

I just wanted to introduce briefly two projects that I found interesting while talking yesterday with developers:

Richard Günther has been looking into making factory updates smaller.  He writes in the Wiki that his first milestone has been reached – the %{release} macro does not contain the rebuild number and therefore instead of syncing out all RPMs of a package, we can limit it to those that have changed.  His next task is creating debuginfo packages for each subpackage instead of a single one that accompanies all packages.

Jiri Kosina and Vojtech Pavlik are working on an automated bug screened, based on Bayesian self-learning algorithms.  The simple tool will suggest the best assignee of a bug based on a description and Bugzilla field values.

Note that we’re just at day two of hackweek, so some of these projects might fail.

Feel free to ping me, if I should introduce your project as well.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.
