Re: [gentoo-dev] Adding NETBEANS to USE_EXPAND

2008-11-20 Thread Miroslav Šulc (fordfrog)
Ok, it seems there are no objections so I will implement
NETBEANS_MODULES within several hours. We also discussed whether to use
NETBEANS_MODULES in USE_EXPAND at #gentoo-dev and agreed on that it will
be ok to implement it.

 I'd like to add NETBEANS to USE_EXPAND. Netbeans ( is
 modular IDE with 18 modules (clusters). Users can freely choose what
 support thay want to build in netbeans, though some modules need other
 modules to compile and work. Are there any objections?
 Here are the modules/clusters:
 IUSE_NETBEANS=+netbeans_apisupport netbeans_cnd netbeans_groovy
 netbeans_gsf +netbeans_harness +netbeans_ide netbeans_identity
 netbeans_j2ee +netbeans_java netbeans_mobility +netbeans_nb netbeans_php
 netbeans_profiler netbeans_soa netbeans_visualweb netbeans_webcommon
 netbeans_websvccommon netbeans_xml
 Btw, there is also request for this in bugzilla:
 I'd like to put the ebuild in the main tree soon as upstream just
 released it and we have in the tree only 5.5.1 which is very old.
 Thanks for your comments.

Re: [gentoo-dev] Looking for help with kernel maintenance

2008-11-20 Thread oford

Sorry for top post... it isn't my normal behavior.

I would be interested.  I have always compiled my own and I have time to 
help.  Best part is that I need an excuse to get back to working with 
gentoo again.

I'm not sure what sort of duties you are looking to have performed but 
I'll tell a bit about me.

I used to follow LKML for fun and to keep abreast of what was going on.
I know how to use patch -p1.
I've been a unix and linux admin for 7 years now.
I currently hold a QA position with a software company. I learned to 
submit good bugs from years of using open source and have familiarity 
with several bug tracking suites.  Bugzilla has changed some since I've 
used it but I'm sure I'll be able to pick it up quickly.

What else would you like to know?

gentoo-sources-2.6 maintenance (our primary supported kernel).

I'm looking for someone with at least:
 - Interest in kernel stuff, or a desire to become interested
 - Time to put towards the tasks
 - Enthusiasm to ask lots of questions rather than let stuff
   sit around
 - Basic experience with bugzilla
 - Basic kernel experience (i.e. you can compile your own)

Having knowledge of kernel internals or experience with kernel hacking 
are NOT requirements because if you have time, interest and ask a lot of 
questions then these will come anyway. A lot of the work doesn't involve 
technical stuff, plus I was certainly very clueless about all this when 
I originally got involved a few years ago.

Being an existing Gentoo developer is not a requirement. Most of the 
work is done on bugzilla and via email. This may be a good opportunity 
to get involved with development and later become a Gentoo developer for 
those that are interested.
