So I just (well, late last night anyway) got back from a fun filled weekend at the ASF Hackathon. This week is ApacheCon US 2005, and the first few days of such events include, in addition to the tutorials, a large room reserved for people just getting together and hacking on various ASF projects. I'm not going to be able to make it for the conference, but it seemed like a crime to miss the Hackathon when the whole thing is only a short flight away in San Diego. Anyway, I got a chance to work my way through a lot of the forgotten backlog of APR patches, fixed a few bugs, met a bunch of people I hadn't ever seen in person, and got myself volunteered to help maintain the ASF Subversion repository. All in all, a weekend well spent if you ask me.
I didn't bring my camera, but fortunately Julian Cash was there, so there should be a lot of really interesting pictures showing up online in the next couple of days.
