I’ll be attending the Linux Plumbers Conference in Portland OR a few weeks from now. It seems like a really useful event for developers, and even a little unusual in that Linus will be giving a git tutorial.
If there’s anyone attending who’d like to meet up & discuss SELinux, especially distro integration issues and similar, let me know. Kees Cook from the Ubuntu project will be there, so if we have enough people, it might also be worth organizing a BoF session (it seems there are currently slots available).
Similarly, if anyone is interested in discussing the integration of MAC security with KVM (i.e. sVirt — a project I’ll discuss in more detail soon), also let me know.
How to build libvirt from git on Fedora:
(cd ~/rpmbuild && mkdir BUILD BUILDROOT RPMS SOURCES SPECS SRPMS)
git clone git://git.et.redhat.com/libvirt.git
git checkout -b mystuff
The above will clone the tree, checkout a branch to hack on, build and test the code, then generate source and binary RPMS. You’ll also be set then to do local manual builds.
Thanks to danpb for clues.
It seems the videos from the recent LF Japan Symposium are up, including my talk on the SELinux project (139MB FLV). It’s really odd seeing yourself giving a talk — I’m making myself watch so I can see what to try and improve in the future.
And yes, “so” is totally the new “um”.
