Linux Foundation Japan Symposium Notes

I presented on the SELinux project today at the Linux Foundation Japan Symposium in Tokyo. The slides from my talk may be downloaded here.

It’s been an interesting conference, with some smaller BoF sessions planned for tomorrow. I live micro-blogged the conference via my account, which I guess turned out as a kind of public note-taking.


Andrew Morton covered quite a lot of interesting kernel process material, highlighting some areas which we need to address (such as whether we’re ready at all to support solid state disks), and explaining his view of the linux-next tree, one unpublished purpose of which was to get kernel hackers to test each others code before upstream merge. He also said that around 15% of kernel contributions are now coming from Japan.

Fedora 9 DVDs and Live CDs

Greg DeKoenigsberg kindly shipped a pile of Fedora DVDs and Live CDs across to give to the attendees. The CDs & DVDs proved very popular and were all distributed.
