FreeBSD Developer Summit: Beyond Buildworld...

Thursday, May 16, 2013 9am-12noon

Overview

The growth in FreeBSD on non-x86 and non-desktop/server systems requires a rethinking of our build process. Several efforts of late have been put forward, including Brooks Davis' cross building changes, as well as the work done by Tim Kientzle and Aleksandr Rybalko and others to take our current build system and twist it to the purpose of building usable images for embedded systems. As this is one of the areas we expect to continue working in, it makes sense to unify our efforts and to provide the necessary tools to get FreeBSD onto any type of board that our code might run on.

If you would like to participate, contact the working group chairs below and CC devsummit@. You will be then added to this page. Please include a list of things you want to talk about or the areas you are interested in. This helps us in planning the session and to bring people together with common interests.

It is possible to bring in people who cannot attend in person via video conference or chat tools. Notes during the session will be published later on for the whole community to see what we discussed.

Goals

In particular, we would like to cover the following topics. This is not an exhaustive list and if you feel there is something missing that you want to talk about, contact one of the session chairs and we will include your topic here. Note that the numbering of the topics does not represent an ordering or importance indication of any kind, but rather a reference to the second table with the "topic of interest" column.
