Come as no surprise, Debcamp and Debconf 18 were amazing! I worked on many things that I had not had enough time to accomplish before; also I had the opportunity to meet old friends and new people. Finally, I engaged in important discussions regarding the Debian project.
Based on my last blog post, follows what I did in Hsinchu during these days.
The Debconf 19 website has an initial version running \o/ I want to thank Valessio Brito and Arthur Del Esposte for helping me build this first version, and also thank tumblingweed for your explanation about how wafer works.
The Perl Team Rolling Sprint was really nice! Four people participated, and we were able to get a bunch of things done, you can see the full report here.
Arthur Del Esposte (my GSoC intern) made some improvements on his work, and also collected some feedbacks from others developers. I hope he will blog post these things soon. You can find his presentation about his GSoC project here; he is the first student in the video :)
I worked on some Ruby packages. I uploaded some new dependencies of Rails 5 to unstable (which Praveen et al. were already working on them). I hope we can make Rails 5 package available in experimental soon, and ship it in the next Debian stable release. I also discussed about Redmine package with Duck (Redmine’s co-maintainer) but did not manage to work on it.
Besides the technical part, this was my first time in Asia! I loved the architecture, despite the tight streets, the night markets the temples and so on. Some pictures that I took below:
And in order to provide a great experience for the Debian community next year in Curitiba - Brazil, we already started to prepare the ground for you :)
See you all next year in Curitiba!
