10 years + 1 day

yesterday 10 years ago I became a Debian Developer.
& I still feel that I belong to this community.
& it took me one more day to write this tiny blog post about it.
so tonight I can celebrate 10 years plus 1 day :)

trains & snow

last weekend I attended the Debian SnowCamp at the lago maggiore in north-western italy, a small DIY hacking & socialising Debian meeting in the tradion of Debian SunCamp. – some impressions:

travel

I wasn't aware of how tedious it can be to travel less than 500 kilometers into a neighbouring country by train in 2018. first of all, no train company would sell me a ticket from innsbruck to laveno-mombello, so innsbruck–verona from öbb & verona–laveno-mombello from trenitalia it was.

from the eight trains (yes, 3 changes per direction) exactly 0 had no delays at departure or arrival or both. in the end I "only" lost one connection. – & one direction from-door-to-door took roughly 9 hours.

location

the ostello casa rossa was lovely (& might be even more lovely with warmer temperature which would allow for longer stays in the garden), & the food at the ristorante concordia was mostly excellent. trying new local specialties (like the pizzoccheri) is always fun. & no lunch or dinner lasted shorter than 2 hours.

work

unsurprisingly, my work was mostly focussed on Debian Perl Group stuff. we managed to move our repos from alioth to salsa during the weekend, which involved not only importing ~3500 repositories but also e.g. recreating our .mrconfig setup.

in practice it didn't help alot for my contributions that I was at SnowCamp as the others were not there, & coordination happened via IRC (unlike a team sprint); but at least I had more people who listened to my shouts of joy or frustration than what I would have had at home :)

misc

  • on my way back I even had snow while waiting at the delayed train in the unexciting station of laveno-mombello.
  • mille grazie to elena & friends for the perfect organisation!
  • if you speak german: the respective volume of my archäologie des alltags (also contains links to tweets with photos).
  • I see quite some potential for other Debian *Camps, maybe even longer & with more pre-planned team sprints under one roof (or in one garden) …

RC bugs 2017/08-29

long time no blog post. – & the stretch release happened without many RC bug fixes from me; in practice, the auto-removals are faster & more convenient.

what I nevertheless did in the last months was to fix RC bugs in pkg-perl packages (it still surprises me how fast rotting & constantly moving code is); prepare RC bug fixes for jessie (also for pkg-perl packages); & in the last weeks provide patches & carry out NMUs for perl packages as part of the ongoing perl 5.26 transition.
