Podcast #18 Interview with Roy Bamford (NeddySeagoon) Gentoo Foundation President


Interview with NeddySeagoon, Gentoo Foundation President and member of the Gentoo Trustees. For some background here is a link to Roy's manifesto;

In this interview Roy gives us the administration take on the state of Gentoo.

dch24 created a transcript of the interview on Gentoo Forums for everybody who prefers reading over listening.

I will try to interview a Council member for the technical side next.



Asterisk and nbsmtp + Gentoo, mysql and Interview Update (video)


I found the program nbsmtp so I could relay asterisk's emails to my isp's mail server. Have some fun and play around with mysql (My Ess Queue Ell) on the command line, an update to my next interview, and random thoughts on Gentoo.

While communication was sent via unofficial means we had intended to project a level of understanding to those actively involved, the update is simple: the untimely and quite unexpected surgical "complication" resulting in the death of my mother has set back a number of schedules, personal/professional/gentoo, for both myself and wolf31o2. We hope developers and users alike can be somewhat sympathetic as the family tries to cope with our loss of this truly dynamic and incredible woman.
As a result, projects involving release engineering, developer relations, and events will be delayed until further notice.

Kind regards,
