Devsummit 2010

  1. 1. Cooperation with the PC-BSD Project Dru Lavigne dru@freebsd.org EuroBSDCon DevSummit, 2010
  2. 2. PC-BSD Perspective ●desktop users tend to find different bugs than system administrators; bugs tend to be with ports and hardware drivers ●desktop users tend to find bugs earlier as they install and use new releases right away, rather than waiting for a branch to stabilize (dot 0 releases) ●would like to increase awareness and streamline processes and feedback loops so users' needs are addressed in a timely fashion
  3. 3. How to Better Coordinate? Ports management team ●heads up on upcoming major changes (e.g. perl), especially those scheduled near or shortly after a release date ●coordinate requests for software not currently ported
  4. 4. How to Better Coordinate? Window managers porters teams: 9.0 will support multiple window managers, ● meaning users will find lots of usability bugs ●template for submitting a useful bug/usability report to freebsd-ports-bugs@ ? ●porters subscribe to our wm bug testing forums? http://forums.pcbsd.org/forumdisplay.php?f=64
  5. 5. How to Better Coordinate? Xorg porters team, general hardware drivers, and Foundation: ●desktop users can't always get the most out of their graphics hardware ●fund work to address missing kernel graphics support? coordinate hardware driver requests? ●
  6. 6. Conclusion Some thoughts for discussion: ●how do we efficiently coordinate the submission of and responses to user feedback? ●are both projects currently aware of each projects' current procedures and resources? ●how can we work more closely together to improve and promote FreeBSD?
