nanobsd(8) is in the tree!

So long, so good. The nanobsd(8) manual page that I have written is in the tree for around a week now and a few minutes ago I managed to MFC it to RELENG_6 so that means that it will be available in the FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE. This was also my first commit to RELENG_6, it was a bit tricky to get it wokring for me, but I think it was successful. Let’s take a look at other things that need to be MFC’ed before we will hit the freeze, which is right around the corner.


I was badly bored today, so I decided that I have to find something to do. Since I have written a NanoBSD article and there is still missing a manual page for this utility, I realized that it would be pretty nice to write one. Finally, it’s done and I’ve sent it to my mentors and Ruslan for review. Let’s hope it’s good enough and will be available in our tree soon!

First commits

After I got my new shiny commit bit, I made my first FreeBSD commits. It’s pretty exciting this all for me, because I have never before used CVS or any other Version Control System. After all, the basic things are not that hard, I expected it to be far more complicated then it really is, although I haven’t made any complex actions yet 🙂 After my first FreeBSD committer days I have closed some of our PRs in the GNATS database, one of which was my long-standing PR with patch for ipfw Handbook chapter. Also I have commited my first typo, which was cought by Tom (ah well, I should wait for his approval too :-)) and I have immediately commited a fix for it. After all, my mentors are really neat and it’s great opportunity to work with them together.
