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).
Hello there, here comes the report for the month of may!

As those who make regular use of it probably already know, one of the features of Haiku's integrated debugger is the ability to inspect the contents of arbitrary (mapped) locations in the target team's address space. This can be handy in various instances, such as when trying to track down bugs that are likely due to a piece of code overwriting part of another data structure, since the data that's been written to memory might contain some pattern or even a familiar string that might hint at the culprit.
A new month, a new report!
The commit range this month is hrev48952-hrev49106. I got bored of doing the statistics by hand, so I've run the repo through gitstats instead. This gives more information than what I could do manually, including a listing of the most active commiters this month. Be sure to have a look at the results!
Hello there, here comes the activity report for the month of march 2015.
This month there were 104 commits (hrev48848-hrev48952), 5 more than in the previous month.
My contract has ended, but for now I have some free time to write a report every month about the ongoing development efforts from the Haiku team. I think this is a nice way to better see the work done, more so than looking at the roadmap progress bars which tend to not move much.
This month there were 91 commits (hrev48757-hrev48848). Let's see what's inside those.
