'Packaging Infrastructure' Contract Weekly Report #2

Hello, Haikuvians!

This week was just as productive as last week. I did start on the builds logic, which now can run "builds" (lists of commands) in sequential order. I also improved the builder management system, and created documentation for pretty much everything.

'Packaging Infrastructure' Contract Weekly Report #1

Hello world!

This week was rather slow: I've logged only 18 hours of contract time this week. I expected this, partly because I didn't expect to do any work on Monday (as mentioned in my first blog post) and partly because I still had some coursework to finish up the semester with. But despite that, I got a ton of stuff done, and the foundations for the following weeks' work are well laid.

Anyone following the "haiku-inc" ML will have noticed that I've been approved to spend 240 hours (around 6 weeks of full-time work) on Haiku's packaging infrastructure. This mostly means I'll be working on the package building system, which will manage the "HaikuPorts" package repository, ensuring it's up-to-date across architectures (and later, across both nightly & release builds).
