DebCamp / DebConf9

So far I’m very much enjoying my first DebCamp / DebConf. It’s nice to finally meet a lot of people in person that I have worked together with or talked to on IRC in the last few years. Cáceres is a relatively small town with a nice old city center.

I arrived early for DebCamp and spent the first few days here working on fixing bugs in the Bazaar and Samba packages as well as discussing the integration between Samba 4 and Kerberos with Sam (both in general and on Debian specifically). In trying to set up a Samba 4 domain we found a number of bugs in the provisioning script, most of which seem to be fixed now.

In the last few days I’ve mostly worked on getting Samba 4 and OpenChange ready to go into Sid (they’re in experimental only at the moment) and have discussed bzr-builddeb and related Bazaar issues with James.

I’m looking forward to going to my first DebCamp/DebConf. I won’t be giving a talk, but I hope to work together with others on integrating Samba 3 and 4 better with the rest of the system and VCS integration.


Summer of Code

I’ve finished the last few bits of my Summer of Code project. Client and server side authentication to CUPS using Kerberos work now, and that includes both the administration tools and IPP.

It’s been fun working on CUPS and now that I’m a bit more familiar with the code, I’d like to have a stab at implementing SPNEGO and NTLMSSP support as well. This should be much easier now, as I have already done the required work to support WWW-Authenticate: Negotiate, one of the prerequisites for both Kerberos and SPNEGO.

Rolf Kvinge also seems to have been successful, Mono now has a self-hosting Visual Basic.NET compiler. I’m looking forward to trying it out, once I can get my hands on a binary to compile it with…
