Moving Faster

It's great to some of the core open development issues really starting to heat up now. You can hear Tim Cramer, Stephen Hahn, and Dave Miner talk about these projects at the OpenSolaris Community Strategy Planning Meeting (slides and audio). At the 21:35 minute mark of the audio, which is slide 6 in the deck, you'll hear Tim talk about the movement of kernel development (gate and tools) to Mercurial and then outside the firewall. See the preliminary schedule and the SCM migration project here and here for more details. Anyway, back to the call: lots of install from Dave and lots of packaging from Stephen. Good stuff. I slept through this meeting, so I'm glad it's all online.

I too am glad they put it online (Thanks Glyn!) after it was rescheduled it fell on a time i would be in the air :(

Including the community in these conversations is a great step forward and I hope we continue down this path.

The phrase "innovation happens elsewhere/everywhere" needs to be lived by OpenSolaris rather than being used as a catch phrase. Not just in code but in requirements, objectives etc.

I feel things coming together very well at the moment and i must say Sun have been learning from it's past mistakes - and really that is the most i am willing to ask.

I agree. We had some rough spots but we are adjusting. Not perfect, but better. :)
