October BAFUG

Thursday of THIS week is another BAFUG meeting.

Hacker Dojo again; reminder: location is now:

        599 Fairchild Dr
        Mountain View, CA 94043

If you're on VTA Light Rail from Mountain View, after departing the Middlefield stop, the building where Hacker Dojo is is the last one to the east of the Light Rail tracks before you cross under the Bayshore freeway.  Here's a link to a page with more information:

<http://wiki.hackerdojo.com/w/page/25425/Directions>

or a link directly to Google Maps:

<https://maps.google.com/maps?q=599+fairchild+drive&ll=37.402926,-122.049866&spn=0.032319,0.032272&hnear=599+Fairchild+Dr,+Mountain+View,+Santa+Clara,+California+94043&gl=us&t=h&z=15>

Google Maps suggests exiting VTA Light Rail at the Bayshore/NASA station, then walking over to Ellis, under the Bayshore freeway, then turn left at Fairchild.

We will be in the "Classroom"; there are maps posted within the Dojo itself.

Please note that there are two parking lots (one rather small), but each is reserved specifically for Hacker Dojo.  On the other hand, there may be other, larger, meetings at Hacker Dojo.  So there is some practical value in reducing one's need to find a parking space.

The meeting (proper) starts at 7:00 PM (1900 hrs. local); expect to be kicked out by 10:00 PM (2200 hrs. local).

==========

This week Alfred Perlstein will have a GIT talk for FreeBSD users, and offer a 1-2 hour demo in a break away for people interested in doing a hands-on GIT experience managing a large project.

We will cover migration of your FreeBSD customizations based on one version of FreeBSD to another FreeBSD version. Specifically, Alfred will be doing a hands-on using "rebasing", to do this migration.

To participate, all that needs to be done is to have run "git clone https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd" beforehand (as this takes about 30 minutes).

In addition, a computer with wi-fi or some internet connection to github.com is needed.

As a prerequisite, it is expected that you have some understanding of "patch(1)" and "diff(1)".

There will be no recording allowed and the format will allow only for short discussion and no derailing. Discussion of other SCM tools is only appropriate in the context of understanding what we are doing in git. Advocacy of other SCM tools will not be tolerated.  If you can not abide by these rules you will be asked to leave the session.

FreeBSD stuff:

9.2 has been released.

The target schedule for 10.0-RELEASE has been published; please see <http://www.freebsd.org/releases/10.0R/schedule.html> for it.  It is scheduled to be branched the day of our meeting: 10 Oct.

I think it's fair to say that there's been a fair bit of "turbulence" in ports in the last couple of weeks or so.

See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
