Hello Guix!

With all the excitement and activity these days, I almost forgot to say
it: *big thanks* to Pjotr and Manolis for organizing the FOSDEM
“Declarative and Minimalistic Computing” devroom, with a great program!
It was a delightful day for me, so thanks also to the speakers and to
those who hosted the sessions.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in the Guix Day!  It’s always
pleasant to be able to discuss things live, especially these days.

Cheers,
Ludo’.

It was very exciting and I wish we could do more of those online
meetings on a more regular basis. It's key to motivation for me.

Too bad nothing was recorded with Big Blue Button (it has a recording
feature). I missed the session on guile-netlink and I don't know what
others. I would've been very interested to find out.

I would be happier contributing to GNU Guix if I felt a bit more
connected with the humans behind the contributors!

Many thanks for the events!

Agree. I think the Guix days are extremely useful. Maybe we should
have a Guix day every 6 months. Online during the pandemic and maybe
hybrid online/in person after?

To keep riding the wave I was thinking we could organise a GNU Hurd
day in 3 months. That an idea? I have been toying with GNU Hurd in a
VM and I think it is nice. GNU Hurd may not be the greatest performer,
but it is small and much easier to secure than Linux, so it could be
of interest for IoT and mobile. I know Chris Webber mentioned seL4
which may or may not be an alternative. These microkernels are an
interesting space for free software and the timing may be just right.

It would be nice to have a little hack day to learn ways to hack on the
Hurd within the VM, to upgrade packages to the latest patched versions
(it’s never really clear to me what the canonical source is), and to
hack on open issues.

Wait what???
I was under the impression that talks would be recorded. So they...
weren't??? At all??? Am I waiting for an upload in vain?

For those that are unaware, there is a Hurd-like operating system in
development by one of the Hurd developers:  X15.

https://www.sceen.net/x15/

Currently it has not started the userspace system yet.  Just food for
thought.

The FOSDEM talks were recorded.

The Guix day we made more informal. I am sorry, we did not record as
with the normal in-person days.
