First of all, let me just say that I’m not officially back. Yes, I made my first checkin to the docs in more than a year. Yes, I’m gonna try my best to get back up to speed. Unfortunately, I’ve got a few roadblocks in that department.
- I actually have a fair amount of time daily when I can use my laptop. Most of this time is spent far away from an Internet connection.
- I don’t have enough hard disk space on my laptop to do a linux install so I can’t really get back up to speed as easily as I like (as an aside, perhaps I should try a windows install so I can update that section).
- I’m still in the Army and still in Iraq, so everything is subject to change seemingly without notice.
My initial plan is to try and get existing patches reviewed and checked in (which is what the checkin I just did was (bug 264226 on the 2.16 branch)). I also am looking over the changes that have been made in the past year and will probably undo parts of some of them. While some of the changes were quite welcome and needed, there are some things that I liked the way they were (as an aside, I have to wonder if Barnboy felt the same way about some of my changes).
So, that’s where I’m at. One step at a time.
PS. Another thing that may cut into my time is the fact that my Halo 2 disk just came in the mail today :).
