Patch flood [Jul. 19th, 2005|12:41 pm]

In the past week or so I've become flooded with patches for Danga::Socket, Perlbal, MogileFS, etc. Not sure what the recent interest is. Normal slow growth/acceptance I guess.

Qpsmtpd now requires Danga::Socket I hear, and GUBA (NSFW) uses Perlbal (with internal reproxy) for permissions/auditing. I guess they're also starting to use MogileFS.

The GUBA people sent me a patch to Perlbal to add byte range support, so now LiveJournal and PicPix and MogileFS get that for free.... nice!

Also gave mart cvs commit access a few weeks prior so he can commit LJ-related things and I don't have to deal with his regular patch flood as much. :-)

I made Danga::Socket portable the other day, and now Perlbal is portable as well, using IO::AIO instead of Linux::AIO.

So I'm pretty happy. Sucked having such a wonderful codebase that only ran on x86 Linux and only we used. Looks like that's changing pretty quick.

high-perf is no longer a branch, it's the trunk. but 0.31 (not released yet) was branched before high-perf was moved to the trunk.

poor guba seems a little slow, still.

Really? When I clicked it earlier not knowing what it was, that porn hit my screen incredibly fast.

Apache::Qsmtpd too

well, it can use an Apache/mod_perl Module too.

thanks for the perlbal thing - i was getting annoyed at changing the syscall numbers every time i installed it ;)

You could've sent a patch instead of making me figure it out. :-)

ah, but i didn't really "fix" it.. i just changed the numbers to the ones in the x86-64 syscall.h. so it was still broken, just in a different way :)
