Saturday started with a good breakfast and distributing the cool shirts that Nerdshirt.de kindly sponsored us (Saturday also started with Thorsten kindly inviting me to speed up my steps to the event location for the amusement of the hackers already there -- over megaphone):
- discussed bibisect/QA with Florian (remotely attending via Skype), Rainer, Friedrich and Rob, resulting in this awesome screencast
- Simplifying login and authentication on TDF services with Mike and the infrastructure guys (OpenID should be the way to go)
- some cross compile gbuild tweaking with Eilidh
- how branching works in git with Christina
- Moggi kindly reminding me that when I joined the project, everyone had to be nice to me because only I knew how gbuild worked, but now we have so many with a deep knowledge about it (Norbert, Matus, Michael Stahl, David to name a few) that I am replaceable -- somewhat uncomforting that, I should have made gbuild more write-only
- Earned myself two Windows configure bugs by Regina
- Eating tasty pasta prepared by Italo
- discussed Ubuntu ppa strategy with Mike
- discussed gerrit progress with Robert and Norbert (attending remotely -- the volunteer that never sleeps)
- proved with Tor that both of us together qualify as a four year old preschooler by solving a riddle that kids solve easily while adults struggle (kendy proved that he qualifies alone, while moggi disqualified himself as a preschooler -- his higher math education proved to be a real handicap)
- jumped in for a few minutes to give hints to Andreas on how to edit the PDF export dialog
- lots of other topics ...
As things got calmer, because more and more hackers returned home, I managed to focus myself on one topic and implemented an small idea proposed to me by Tor: Per Library debug builds.
