My Goals for Wheezy
Posted: Mon, 7 February 2011 | permalink | No comments
Inspired by some chatter in IRC, and encouraged to post by Paul Wise, here are my personal goals (in no particular order) during the Wheezy development cycle:
- Keep my packages BugLess(TM). It should go without saying, given the piddling little packages I maintain, but I've been a bit slack about this in the past. I want to be more proactive in responding to newly reported bugs, and dealing with them (forwarding upstream, fixing, uploading, etc).
- No non-wontfix, non-help bugs in netcfg. Since nobody else is giving it any love, I've decided to step up and effectively "adopt" netcfg (the component in the Debian installer which handles the task of selecting and configuring a network interface for the install process). I've already uploaded 1.60 with a number of smaller bugfixes, and I have projects underway relating to IPv6 support and WPA support (help needed on that latter one; see the link for details), but I've set myself the somewhat ambitious goal of completely scrubbing it's bug list down to wontfix and help bugs. Let's see how that goes...
- Do something about ifupdown. This one has grown out of my netcfg work -- basically, it's bug list is terrifying, and it's missing support for a number of IPv6 features (most of which appear to be reported already). I don't know whether my "something" will involve just bug triage, or writing patches, or actually getting involved in maintaining the package on an ongoing basis, but I've committed myself (publically now, even) to doing something.
So, I've shown you mine, will you show me yours?
