FUDCon Pune Day 3

Day 3 is hackfest day and I attended the session ran by Robert Sheck. I packaged wdiff there and got some really great help from Praveen Kumar and Ankur Sinha. I still can’t do Package Reviews though and I got myself another reading list – http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines and http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:ReviewGuidelines

We had pizza lunch near the auditorium and Izhar, Rahul and I got started on this really interesting talk of how India pulled it off. Another session later at night happened in Jared’s room together with everybody and I got a lot of insight on how things were run. The team shared their experiences and you can not help but see, feel and hear COMMUNITY. A really great experience.

My main goal in coming to FUDCon Pune is to gather “intelligence” on how FUDCon is run, have a feel of the expectations involved and get to see if our Philippine team can pull it off. I feel confident we can do it, I just hope our team decides to do it 🙂

While looking for an empty electrical socket at the COEP Auditorium, I came across my hotel cross-door neighbor Lakshmi Narasimhan and got into this conversation about packaging. Soon enough he’s running me through all the steps of packaging ghc-fingertree and I’m suddenly a member of Fedora Haskell SIG. 🙂
