Google Summer of Code 2016 summary


January 14, 2017 posted by Thomas Klausner

The NetBSD Foundation took part in the 2016 Google Summer of Code.

Hrishikesh Goyal worked on the project "Implement Ext4fs support in ReadOnly mode". He tackled two features of an ext4fs implementation: extents and HTree DIR read/write support. His work was committed into the NetBSD source tree in multiple commits.

charles cui worked on adding tests for better "POSIX Test Suite Compliance". This involved porting the Open Posix benchmark suite to NetBSD. Many of the tests showed missing features, and Charles worked with his mentors to improve the results. See his summary for details.

Leonardo Taccari worked on "Split debug symbols for pkgsrc builds". He already blogged about this in much detail on this blog.

A big thank you to Google for sponsoring the students to work on NetBSD, the students for working on the projects, and the mentors that were helping them along! [0 comments]
