Open Source Conference 2016 Tokyo

Many people came to the Gentoo booth,
mainly students and Open Source users
asking for Gentoo information.

We gave away around 200 flyers, and
many many stickers during the two days.

Unfortunately the sticker we ordered
from unixsticker had some SVG problem.

We had also in exposition some esoteric
enviroment like the IS01 sharp,
off course mounting Gentoo as Native and
as prefix.
Of course one of the first things we tried
was the 5 minutes long Gentoo sl command.

We also had a Gentoo notebook
running wayland (the one in the middle).

It was an amazing event and I would
like to thanks everyone that came to
the Gentoo booth, everyone that helped
making the Gentoo booth and all the
amazing Gentoo community.

              remeber when you added something and why  
            - let's use package.use directory and put file 
              name about what you are installing

        Presenter: alicef  
        Slide: How to contribute on Gentoo Github  
            - recently Gentoo CVS repository as been converted to Git  
            - Using the Github mirror is possible to send pull request.  
            - Good point of pull request:  
                - Code comment and review from more than one developer  
                - fast way to send ebuild patch upstream  
                - QA automatic check   
            - Bad point of pull request:  
                - the review are open to see to everyone  
                - basic git knowledge is needed  
            When we clone Gentoo repository:   
                Use git clone --depth=50   
                for fast pull request with less log information  
                git clone and git clone --depth=50 time difference:

                - copy on write  
                - using subvolume we can make snapshot  
                - compress is possible  
                - cannot make swapfile  
                - unit is the process file manager  
                - using systemd stage 3 is simple to install  
                - not using syslog but journald  
                - network setting by networkd  
                - instead of cron there is timer  
                - instead of ntp there is systemd-timesyncd  
                - grub is not needed, instead systemd-boot 
                  (ex gummi boot) work as bootloader  
                - docker is not needed, instead systemd-nspawn 
                  using machinectl command (good for testing gentoo package)  
        Presenter: @naota344  
        Slide: automatically resolving conflict   
            Gentoo developer, btrfs, linux kernel, emacs, T-code  
                resolving conflict  
                    - when USE flag is needed it will ask to 
                      add a USE flag.  
                    - when circulation dependency is detected it will 
                      ask to remove a USE flag, for example  
                Why there is a conflict:  
                    - Before installing a new package, we 
                      have a package (for example perl-5.20) with all 
                      the the dependency package setted  
                    - when we are goin to update world and we get a 
                      new package update (for example perl-5.22),
                       also some dependency of perl-5.22 get new update  
                    - in this situation can happen that some dependency
                      to perl-5.20 get in conflict with perl-5.22  
                How can we fix such situation:  
                    - we have a option to add --reinstall-atoms="Y"
                      to emerge command (Y= name of the dependency
                      package that is causing problem)  
                    - this command will instead of just update the
                      package it will reinstall the package as if 
                      they are not installed, solving such dependency
                Why package is anyway deciding to automatically 
                not fixing dependency  
                    maybe because trying to fix all the dependecy will not
                    work correctly  
                When portage have conflict for many package  
                    it became more complicated and we will have a command
                    similar to this:  
                    --reinstall-atoms="A B C D E F G H I L M N ..."  
                For solving such problem there is emerge --reinstall-atoms
                    - automatically fixing circle dependecy  
                    - showing dependency graph  
                    - there is also a function for make try the 
                      dependency graph in a container  
                    - emerge analyzer tool

Recently i became Gentoo Kernel Project member, maintaining the Gentoo Kernel branch 4.7
Kernel Project

I already made some release.

so you can ping me,
if the Gentoo Kernel is not up to date :)

Recently we had the Dirty COW (CVE-2016-5195) kernel vulnerability come out,
and the Gentoo 4.7 branch update was released after just some couple hours after the kernel patch was release.

Because i had some free time i got to internship for look for work and did Gentoo Study Meeting, after almost 6 months.
And contribute on Gentoo.
I also could get into the open source research lab of school,
so in this months i will follow some few lessons and do opensource research.

The development as been a bit slowed down because of University exam of July and August.
It will continue soon.

Posted Fri Jun 24 13:55:13 2016

This next month i will have a new University exam, so i will be more slow on replay about eisen, i will try anyway to keep a high quality.

I'm unfortunatly, from my prevision, taking more time for building a user friendly virtual image for problem with vagrant on cygwin.

tomorrow i will be at women techmakers tokyo and i will available for any question.
after tomorrow i will do a little presentation of eisen engine at tokyo pyladies.

Don't commit generated files
Today I started from css, at first we introduced it with the generated files, but now that we are using vagrant for developing such files are not needed and dosen't have to be maintained under a revision system as best practice.
instead the vagrantfile now is containing a simple

echo -e "\n--- Updating css ---\n"
gem install compass
cd /vagrant/webd
compass compile

After finishing to autocreate the css file i moved to make the init service.
At first like I said in the previous post i thought to use supervisor, but i got into a problem, supervisor is requiring to specify the enviroment variable, and celery+ansible was claming about such call. giving a "muxserver_listen bind(): Operation not permitted" error.

so i used instead LSB-init and all started to work.
you can see all the file here

Because of this, I'm starting to make actual releasing box using
vagrant package --output

And if I'm not too late happy pi day #piday from eisen

This Month was so much busy... as usual...

This time took me so much time thinking about what to write here i don't know why.

Anyway I'm making Pyherd
a simple project for retrive herd and maintainer e-mail from xml metadata,
is not finished yet, but my intent is to make it work with pybugz for managing the bugzilla Gentoo
bugz directly from command line and make the Bug-wranglers job more easy.

I tried to use python-for-android for compile a dictionary midori,
it tooks so many time to make python for androidi work because
of some incompatibility with recent android-ndk version but it worked using
ANDROIDAPI=14 and export ANDROIDNDKVER=r8e issue.
so i contribute adding pyparsing-recipe needed for make the dictionary work.
Someone on irc also told be to use --orientation=sensor in the arguments
for use the mobile phone orientation sensor, really helpfull.

I also get interested in Virgil and started to write some code but I need more pratice,
so nothing interesting for now.

I was also present at Open Source Conference fall 2013 #osc13tk with Gentoo booth and i had lot of fun!
thanks to everyone!!!
sorry if i was not always at the booth.
I gived also a lightining talk about how to join Gentoo,
this time in english but next time for sure in japanese.
thanks for all the twitter message !
And let's help in Gentoo project always more!
there are always many things to do!


You can find the presentation slide here How to join Gentoo and why
please if you think that something is not correct or imprecise send a pull request!
i'm working also at the japanese translation to use next time.

I posted some git ebuild patch:
and a freebsd ebuild patch:
BUG 482512 about error: 'CTLTYPE_QUAD' undeclared (first use in this function)
And doing Bug-wranglers work on daily basis.
