   ## Side discussion with Youri and Calum
   
   * how can we induce people to choose pkgsrc over Homebrew?
       * most people are looking for an OS-specific package manager
       * they don't realize they should look for cross-platform
       * I've learned that I should
       * we need to attract OS X users on their own terms
           * what if we managed /Applications, from source or not?
       * likewise for other platforms
       * what if we branded pkgsrc differently for each platform?
       * also concentrate on binary package experience
       * `pkgin` is a real nice user experience
   * how are people finding their OS X binary packages?
       * screenshots they post on [/r/unixporn](http://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn)
   
   ## Lightning talks
   
   ### David Brownlee: "Pretty tabular data without much effort"
   
   * jQuery
   * [example](http://www.netbsd.org/~wiz/perl.html)
   * see also <http://sync.absd.org/www>
   
   ### Youri Mouton: pkgsrc for new developers
   
   * used NetBSD and `pkgin` without knowing what pkgsrc was
   * saw `pkgin` supported on other OSes (e.g., Minix)
   * and OS X (a main OS he uses)
   * started manually making packages for `pkgin`, not realizing
   * _then_ understood it was pkgsrc being used to make packages
   * a few months doing bulk builds
   * there isn't a tutorial on how to start as a pkgsrc developer
   * submitted ports to pkgsrc-wip
   * people usually find MacPorts, Homebrew, Fink, and _then_ maybe `pkgin`
   * this is too bad, they ought to be finding us
   * Youri and Calum's project: <http://saveosx.org>
       * they're doing gpg-signed packages
   * people ask "where can I find documentation" and there isn't a great answer
   * writing clear, clean docs for new users and developers would be great
   * we all think jperkin's writeups and docs on this are terrific
       * can we have them?
   * tron: bootstrap experience for MacPorts may be nicer
       * schmonz: should be possible to build a Mac `.pkg` from bootstrap
   * abs: three target demographics:
       * use binary packages
       * build from source, use options, don't want to fix things
       * developers
   * this underscores the need for user-editable wiki
   * design patterns for pkgsrc: e.g., how to fetch from a certain git commit
   * hey, let's take some time as a group and merge `pkgsrc.org` into
       `wiki.n.o/pkgsrc/`
   
   ### Jaap Boender: OCaml packages
   
   * OCaml has a build system akin to Haskell's "cabal"
   * would like to factor it out, not sure how best to do that
   * (I was busy prepping a talk)
   
   ### Justin Cormack: cross-compiling
   
   * with `qemu`, non-native binaries can run from `./configure` and the like
   * syscall emulation
   * (I'm still prepping a talk)
   
   ### Sevan Janiyan: Mac OS X `powerpc`
   
   * GCC>4.4 doesn't build with XCode
   * he's managed to get up to 4.7 now
   * next thing GCC 4.8 and then he'll be able to build stuff
   * (I'm still prepping)
   
   ### Matthias Scheler: world's best ISP
   
   * XKCD 806
   * (still prepping)
   
   ### Sebastian Wiedenroth: merging trivial fixes
   
   * (still prepping)
   
   ### S.P. Zeidler: packaging for TNF servers
   
   * to be installed on TNF servers, it must be in pkgsrc
   * if it might ever run as root, it must be built on certain protected systems
   * `pkg_chk_(8)` for seeing what needs to be built
   * packages are built in `pkg_comp(8)` with sets matching arch and NetBSD version
   * then they're transferred to the destination systems and `pkg_add(8)`ed
   * vulnerabilities detected with `pkg_admin audit`
   * (missed some details)
   
   ### Stephen Borrill: building products with NetBSD and pkgsrc
   
   * based on 2007 EuroBSDCon presentation
   * thin clients
   
   ## Me: "pkgsrc design goals"
   
   * blah blah blah
   * slides forthcoming
