Haiku Admin Meeting 2007-07-02:

  • Discussion about WalterCon planning. Things are moving along.
  • The existence of a project called RadiantOS which claims to eventaully be a “distro” based on Haiku was mentioned.
  • There was some discussion about the status of running GCC in Haiku: Haiku might be close to self-hosting capability (able to build itself). It was mentioned that once Haiku can self-host it’s probably time for an official alpha release.

Haiku Admin Meeting 2007-07-09:

  • There was some discussion about AGG and the recent buzz about it on OSNews and other places.
  • The Admin Team Gathering was discussed some more.
  • Some WalterCon issues were discussed: The registration module on the WalterCon website appears to be broken. There is a need for more presenters.

  • The ability for Haiku to self-host was discussed further: Axel and Ingo will take a look at the VM issues.
  • GSoC progress was discussed: Lots of good results from the participants are already surfacing.
