News FreeBSD Core Team Elected (2012)

The FreeBSD Core Team acts as the project’s “board of directors” and is responsible for approving new src committers, resolving disputes between developers, appointing members for sub-teams (security officer, release engineering, port managers, webmaster, etc …). The Core Team has been elected by FreeBSD developers every two years since 2000.

The FreeBSD Project is run by FreeBSD committers, or developers who have SVN/CVS commit access.

The bi-annual election period is now over and the new members (re-)elected:

  • Thomas Abthorpe
  • Gavin Atkinson
  • John Baldwin
  • Konstantin Belousov
  • David Chisnall
  • Attilio Rao
  • Hiroki Sato
  • Peter Wemm
  • Martin Wilke

Congratulations to all.

U-Boot for Raspberry Pi

U-Boot for Raspberry Pi is now working. This is a “fairly stable, flexible u-boot distribution suitable to be used as an environment for OS bring-up”.

So, current state of affairs is:

  • USB support
  • SD card support (FAT filesystem)
  • Support for built-in USB ethernet
  • Autoimport environment from uEnv.txt
  • Autorun of boot script (boot.scr)

Next stage is to get FreeBSD working on Raspberry Pi.
