9.0 TODO, open tasks, ongoing projects
This is a transcriptish from the blackboard at the BSDCan DevSummit/201105 9.0 Finalization Planning session, 2011-05-12:
JohnBaldwin's slides go here
- clang switch in ports needed
- compile ports with different/non-base compiler
- external toolchain support (imp)
- Make /usr/bin/cc gcc but build base+sys with clang (per-arch)
- benchmarks (dhw)
- GPT default?
- Dedicated disk in installer get GPT by default
- GPT Labels? glabel? (there are some labels) UFS labels?
- Auto-mode partition schemes for UFS and ZFS
- propose 1-3 common once
- hw.acpi.power_blah? Try for 9 and back out if it blows up.
Other ongoing projects

Start of stable branch => 4y?
- 1 release per stable branch.
- What in, what out? Build list.
- More bsdinstall testing
