@gdamore
excellent
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
methinks that ReactOS has a lot of potential and can do the same to Windows what Linux did to Unix
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
if your background is security work, there are some interesting projects that need work.
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
care to share?
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
for example, we need libc interfaces required for the improvements to OpenSSH
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
(totally sorry if I sidetracked you from other things -- let me know if you're busied and we can continue this conversation another time :) )
hmm. is there an open issue for that?
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
also, I’d really like our SSH code to get some lovin'
(specifically, I want to see us ditch the OpenSSL requirement and instead use our native crypto libraries, and I’d also like to see us pick up enhancemnts to be more compatible with newer SSH implementations — for example ECC crypto support.)
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
so, I'm going to confess -- crypto isn't my strong suit. -- but if this is something that is needed, it's tangible enough that maybe I can start here!
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
I have my doubts about ReactOS. Far too little investment, and not a big enough code base to build upon. And waay too many economic forces against them.
You don’t have to be a crypto wizard to do most of this work. Mostly its just converting from one API to another.
The ECC is another matter of course
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
@gdamore while I don't disagree, I don't think it's a waste of time. they're a definitive source for undocumented Window-sy stuff and if they don't do it, no one else wants to
I'm not 100% confident I have to skills to help out either on a native-SSL implementation
though, if you can mentor me through it, I definitely can give it a shot!
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
I’d like to help, but honestly, I’m not sure how much time I’d be able to give you. I’m pretty swamped these days.
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
I totally understand, would you have a resource that I can peek at to maybe get a gauge of the code that needs to be written?
I started learning about illumos more because a few of my friends work at joyent and voxer -- and they pulled me in because the OS had pretty cool things
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
I’d start by looking at the usr/src/cmd/ssh code.
its probably a kind of big task, in retrospect.
You might ask around on #Illumos — there are also bite-size tasks in the bug tracker.
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
okie dokie, I'll start by looking there :)
any kind of guidance immensely appreciated
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
sure. as I said, the best thing you can do is get some idea of an area of interst, or an itch you want to scratch. then you can work from there
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
taking a peek at the issues filed on illumos-core, some of them might be byte-sized enough that I think I might be able to tackle them
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
excellent.
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
we'll see.... for the time being, school unfortunately takes a priority :( ... once I get settled down with my full-time job/ commitments, I'll see how contributing to FOSS projects can fit into my life
suffice to say, I'm pretty excited. it's awesome that all you kernel devs (here and at reactos) are so nice/ easily approachable
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
hey, we like having fresh victims^W^W new blood^Whelpers on our projects! :-)
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
lol ++ to that
Andrew Stormont
@andy-js
I wonder if you could take some of the ReactOS or WINE code and stuff it into a zone.
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
I was thinking the same. Wine probably. ReactOS.. I think only in KVM
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
@Happy-Dude I'm a student too and I've tackled some byte-size bugs before most of them in -core. If you have any issues or questions about compiling the kernel or submitting your changes in the -core or the gate I'd be happy to help. I've also read a significant amount of documentation from various sources so I can point you to specific guides or references if you are looking for something very specific. :)
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
@sdimitro that would be AMAZING. do you have a resource for getting started in general?
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
That is an introductory guide that was released some point last year.
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
wow, thanks!
sweet. wonder why I didn't find that... is it reference in the illumos wiki?
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
Very well written and it works as an update for the old documentation from the illumos wiki
I'm not sure actually
But it is a lot more up to date in some things from the illumos wiki
I would read them both
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
awesome, sounds good
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
if you have any questions or you are not sure feel free to ask me or the people from the IRC
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
thanks a ton
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
Enjoy!
Stanley Chan
@Happy-Dude
@sdimitro , @gdamore whew, on the verge of graudation! gotta start learning how to illumos-dev now :)
Garrett D'Amore
@gdamore
Very nice !!
Serapheim Dimitropoulos
@sdimitro
Great to hear! Unfortunately I have been very busy with my internship which is mostly working on Linux stuff but I really hope I can get back to illumos at some point
