Well this was a non-productive weekend. Well, at least from the opensource point of view :-)
My fiance is back from visiting her mother, so I'll be slowing down things a little bit here. Howver, she may be spending some time here at Conectiva (depends on official aproval), so I'm crossing my fingers I'll be able to do some work at nights still.
Anyway, I should go back a little to may pet projects, namely yafingerd and squid_mysqldb.There is too much spiderweb on it, and I need to clean them. Anyway, yafingerd is almost ready, and should not be sitting idlely around, and an orphan.

UML is getting better and better. Most of the problems are disapearing, and a few patches, for me and others, for improving network performance are trying to find its way into the main tree.
RPM development is a little slow right now. Most of it is happening on 4.0, mainly backports from 4.1
As a side note, the 2.95 tree of gcc is a little wierd. Looks some some ABI changes happened, which I find confusing, once it was not supposed to happen. I'm keeping an eye on it so see if those were real changes or just some buggy patches.
glibc 2.2 is getting better and better.
Oh, btw, Tucows/Linuxberg made a review about Conectiva Linux 6.0. Take a look at it.
All in all, life is good right now :-)

I received a visit from a former employer, who is thinking on changing his systems to Conectiva Linux. He asked me to show him why it would be a good idea :-) Oh well, 2 minutes to convince him, 53 to tour him around Conectiva :-) Also, me and my fiance went to dinner with him latter at night ... Not bad for a day at work ...
