The ... [More] software troubles with the 737 MAX caused frequent scheduling changes. At Montreal airport I ran into tb@ and naddy@ but all of us were on different airplanes to Ottawa. When I finally arrived a different crew of people were waiting for me and my luggage. It is pretty clear that this is a general hackathon if you run into developers everywhere along the way. The last todo item after a long travel day was beer and food at the local pub where all the others were. Read more… [Less]

After doing active development on it for about a month, i just released version 1.0.0 of the DocBook to mdoc converter, docbook2mdoc(1). The OpenBSD port was updated, too.

Fresh from the recent t2k19 hackathon in Taipei, Florian Obser (florian@) writes in with this report: unwind(8) is weird. It is the first daemon I wrote without having a constant use for most of its features. slowcgi(8), slaacd(8) and rad(8) are different, I use them every day and I will notice when I break stuff.
