LCA 2010 Wednesday

Pandora-build. There for support – I’ve contributed patches. Pandora is a set of additional glue and layers to improve autotools and make it easier to work with things like gettext and gnulib, turn on better build flags and so forth. If you’re using autotools its well worth watching this talk – or hop on #drizzle and chat to mtaylor :)

The open source database survey talk from Selena was really interesting – a useful way of categorising databases and a list of what db’s turned up in what category. E.g. high availability,community development model etc. Key takeaway: there is no one-true-db.

I gave my subunit talk in the early afternoon, reasonably well received I think, though I wish I had been less sick last week: I would have loved to have made the talk more polished.

Ceph seems to be coming along gangbusters. Really think it would be great to use for our bzr hosting backend. 0.19 will stablise the disk format! However we might not be willing to risk btrfs yet :(

Next up, the worst inventions ever.. catch it live if you can!
