Straight from the Src | BSD Now 100
BSDnow - July 30, 2015, 6:48 pm UTC
We've finally reached a hundred episodes, and this week we'll be talking to Sebastian Wiedenroth about pkgsrc. Though originally a NetBSD project, now it runs pretty much everywhere & he even runs a conference about it!

One of our new developers, Alexandr Nedvedicky (sashan@), writes in to tell us about his trip to the lovely locale of Calgary for c2k15.


It's been an honor for me to spend a week with OpenBSD developers. I'd like to thank to mikeb@, who somehow made it happen. I've tried not to slack too much, committing all small bugfixes to PF, we've found in past, while porting PF to Solaris. There is still one more patch to come, I'm basically waiting for O.K. from bluhm@.

DragonFly libm changes
DragonFlyBSD Digest - July 27, 2015, 5:02 pm UTC
DragonFly now has the same math library (libm) as OpenBSD, replacing an earlier combined version of I think what NetBSD and FreeBSD ran.  This doesn’t necessarily directly affect you, but it’s work worth doing; matching the underlying frameworks between BSDs helps everyone.

For our next c2k15 installment, we welcome new developer Rafael Zalamena (rzalamena@), who just submitted his first-ever hackathon report:




My name is Rafael Zalamena (rzalamena@) and this was my first OpenBSD hackathon.


I was invited to the hackathon early this year to help renato@ and mpi@ to
deal with the commit of mpw(4) device to finish the VPLS implementation for
OpenBSD, but after the first days in Calgary I was offered an account to
do my first commits.

Introducing BSDHistory
DiscoverBSD - July 25, 2015, 2:39 pm UTC
Hi folks,

I am very happy to introduce #BSDHistory What is it?#BSDHistory is  kind of "a fact a day", "random fact" website, showing random facts from BSD History.
I guess the best thing you can do is to visit it and see for yourself:
  • minimal design
  • link to the source of the information
  • link to another random fact
  • link to add new fact
  • share to twitter funcionality
  • footer with some more info
 You can add your own facts.  Right now, there are 4 facts only, but no worries. Project is open-source and anyone can contribute.
I would be very happy to see people contributing facts, or making the page better. Obviously, the code can always be made better. I will be adding more stuff to the page.

So go ahead and share something by clicking on twitter icon... :)

If you're looking for more details how #BSDHistory was done, please visit my blog post here.

Our next c2k15 report comes from Martin Pieuchot (mpi@), who appears to have had a quite productive hackathon:




As expected, I spent most of my time during this hackathon working on
the network stack. But apart from a crazy trunk(4) bug fix I did
not write much code during the week and this was completely new to me!


I always though that hackathons were the best place to write code, but
what's even more important is that they are the best (well actually
only) moment where one can discuss and coordinate projects with other
developers IRL. And that's what I did.

A few days before the hackathon, I worked on a few rc.d(8) related things that I
wanted to (and did) commit at the start of the week to give me a chance
to fix any fallout.
