[gentoo-dev] I'm retiring

2006-05-17 Thread Rob Holland

Hey all,

As I've done very little Gentoo work in last few months and have
generally lost interest in Gentoo, I'll be retiring.

If you need to reach me you can find me at [EMAIL PROTECTED], or on
IRC where I'll continue to sit in #gentoo-audit.

Credit to the security/audit team for being fun and interesting enough
that this didn't happen earlier, despite my lack of enthusiasm for
Gentoo as a distribution now. I'll continue to sit in the sec/audit
channels and generally be available there as best I can.

Please close any accounts I have, and if possible, change my bugzilla
account to be [EMAIL PROTECTED] All email/home stuff can go.

Thanks, and maybe cya around :)

Rob

[gentoo-dev] Gentoo-based sysadmin job

2006-02-28 Thread Rob Holland
Hi peeps,

LINX (http://www.linx.net) are looking for a sys-admin with excellent
Gentoo knowledge. Hardened toolchain and/or grsec experience are
considered a big plus.

You will act as the Gentoo guru for the IT department and are expected
to be very comfortably with Gentoo on servers. Where you don't know how
to do something, you should be able to research and learn it quickly.

You would be required to live in/near Peterborough, UK. That's about an
hour from London by train.

If you are interested, please see:

https://www.linx.net/www_public/about/careers

Any questions, feel free to ask me and I'll either answer myself or
point you towards the correct person at LINX.

[gentoo-dev] UK Expo rota and opening times

2005-09-28 Thread Rob Holland
boo.

So, the devs who have confirmed that they are going are:

Definitely both days: tigger, lcars, slarti, cryos, tomk

(Possibly) Wednesday only: strerror, herbs

If you aren't on that list and should be tell me.

I've made a lame rota thing for manning the booth, I've been as fair as
I could. If you wanna swap shifts with others that's fine, but let me
know so that at least one person knows who is meant to be where when :)

Particularly if the people who might only be make one day can actually
make both, we'll try and squeeze you into a shift on the second day as
well.

I've not repeated any pairings so that we all get to enjoy the company
of as many other devs as possible...or something.

Rota:

Wednesday:

09:30-11:30 - slarti cryos
11:30-13:30 - strerror lcars
13:30-15:30 - tomk herbs
15:30-17:00 - tigger strerror

Thursday:

09:30-11:30 - tomk cryos
11:30-13:30 - slarti tigger
13:30-16:00 - lcars cryos

The show opens to exhibitors at 8:30am both days and I should be there
around that time both days. The show opens to the public at 9:30 both
days.

Everyone mentioned above will have an Exhibitor pass waiting for them at
the desks when they arrive.

Wednesday evening we'll be at the Lonix social event. Thursday evening
we'll probably pop out for a drink before heading home I imagine.

If there is a danger of you being late or not able to make it at all
please email me/ping me on IRC and get my mobile number so you can let
me know.

Cheers, and see you there! :)

We'll meet up at the end of the show on the 5th October at 5.00pm

Waterstones/Rymans direction. You'll see the Champion on your left.

We have the entire downstairs and beer garden reserved for us. A
variety of fine ales and beers are served as well as a huge
selection of reasonably priced food, from sausage and mash to
cray fish.

[gentoo-dev] UK Linux Expo

2005-09-19 Thread Rob Holland
All,

This is a gentle reminder that the UK Linux Expo is on 5th-6th October
at Olympia, London. Gentoo will have a (small) booth at the expo, so if
you are interested in being in the booth (dev's only I'm afraid) please
let me know.

I will be drawing up a rota on Wednesday, so if you've not replied by
email or IRC by then, you will struggle to get a time slot to strut your
funky stuff in the booth.

I will chase those people who have previously told me that they would be
going.

Hardware wise we will have a Dual Xeon on loan from a kind user, cryos's
laptop and possible a mac-mini. That's probably all that will fit on the
stand anyway so that should be plenty.

If dev's would like to bring their own laptops to show off while on the
stand, that's fine (good in fact, more variety). Please bear in mind
that it will be your responsibility to look after them while you are not
in the booth. There will not be anywhere for you to leave them at the
booth.

There will be no network connection to the booth. We will hopefully have
a full distfiles mirror on the Dual Xeon though, so we can still demo
emerge.

Any questions/problems, let me know.

Cheers,

Rob

[gentoo-dev] bacula needs lovin'!

2005-05-22 Thread Rob Holland
Ey peeps,

Can someone please take a look at the bacula ebuilds, they really do
suck and have several open bugs.

Quite how any of them are marked stable I dunno.

They could use a new maintainer, seems zul is now inactive.

Cheers,

Rob

look at our co-ordination page on the Gentoo UK website:

Please sign up and register for the event on that site if you want to
