It's been a while LifeStuff(tm)
Things are looking fairly good atm, I've been running arjan's ppc kernel this week, rebuilt for firewire so it'll talk to my shiny new firewire drive I'm going to test builds on.
After wrestling with anaconda in test mode (turned out prodpath in anaconda was still looking for RedHat) a test run went fairly well. Real install on Sunday.
For doing my kernel builds I've started to use mezzanine to wrap around CVS and a PDR type setup. Useful for generating diffs of specs and .configs.
Discussion on objects in python for rpm is starting which is nice, there is still so much to do at the rpm-python level, including a nasty for biarch setups in addErase that skvidal caught - that's on the list for Sunday too.
UPDATE I'll leave it to you, dear reader to figure some of the questions I asked Red Hat.
