Ever wanted to see what devs talk about when they aren't being watched? Wanted to know what the production of a nitro is like? Want to see how awesome (and hilarious) kernel patching can be? Check this out.

Quote:
(17:17:23) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: I should keep these logs and put them up in a thread
(17:17:23) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: like
(17:17:30) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: nitro-dev ramblings
(17:17:35) tiger683@jabber.org: hmm
(17:17:38) tiger683@jabber.org: yes
(17:17:40) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: so people can see this kind of hilarity
(17:18:14) tiger683@jabber.org: u can make it
(17:18:17) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: alright
(17:18:26) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: so you don't mind if I post all of these up in otw?
(17:18:46) tiger683@jabber.org: no, not at all
(17:18:50) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: hehe
(17:18:59) darckness@jabber.org/Gaim: this is going to be great


WARNING: DO NOT BE OFFENDED BY ANYTHING WITHIN.
The point of this was so that people could see how the nitro people work, and laugh at some of the more comedic moments. If it seems like a joke, it is. If it seems odd/violent, it's a joke.
These are...

THE NITRO-DEV FILES!

And now with 46% more irc action!

I'll be keeping it as up to date as I can. If you see that I haven't put anything new up in a few days/hours, nudge me.

Will these great sources some day be in the official portage tree?


hi

Due to the overall lack of QA in nitro-source, probably not.

wswartzendruber: I know that there is a lack of QA in nitro-sources. I'm a developer for them. The point was that some day I hope to be able to provide sufficient QA.

Sorry for the miscommunication. I'm not applying the lack of QA in a negative fashion. I just read those crazy logs then right afterwards read that statement. The two just go together so well!

nice :) thx , so it seems that I will have some extra money for pub`s and student-living hehe ( from english lessons hehe ) :P :)

so , is many of devels now as I see in nitro :)

I think about some idea some time ago , but I`m not sure of it.
Somebody on the forum said some day :
" Will be nice if all patchset people will work togheter and do some one extra stuffy speedy patchset " .

of course every idea has "+" and "-" here , is no clear easy way to have all concepts in one kernel. but maybe all of us do something that feel best ...can be interesting but in ohter side , too much modyfications , syncing and etc. = too much unstable risk...

ehh it`s long topic for irc or for beer in the pub hehe :)


some " beer patchset " with genetic beer selection and teleportation of it to my desk will be very nice :P :)

cheers ;)

I'm back, I was snowboarding in France last week :D
I WILL make a new nitro sooner or later, but I'm a bit busy atm. I have to investigate how far you can go with Web services (SOAP, WSDL, ...) for school and my g/f wants attention as well :)

But when you least expect it, I will release a new nitro :)

Just put up the latest irc log here which chronicals our raid of the love-sources channel. It didn't go quite as well as planned though.

As a result of the massive amount of awesome work (and our attempts to keep it a surprise for you guys!) I can't post too many of the conversations we've had recently until after the 2.6.11 release of nitro. Sorry!
