Recently, a few Quality of Life PRs have been submitted for our tooling, principally related to introspection of package recipe build environments in situ via the newly merged
boulder chroot functionality.
As part of the scope of the current development phase, Ikey has been on a roll re. desktop-kernel enablement (early microcode loading has now been enabled, which is a requirement for intel® processor security in relation to microcode updates) and has begun work on fleshing out the moss-deps code for dealing with cyclic dependencies between packages that have been stopping certain packaging efforts dead in their tracks.
Once the moss-deps blocker is resolved, Gtk3 will be landed in the serpent recipe repos. I'll leave it up to you, dear reader, to infer what that might mean in terms of upcoming packaging efforts.
In parallel, our Operations Team has begun fleshing out a revamp of our development workflow and our infrastructure change management/configuration workflow, which is slated to be refined and adopted over the coming weeks.
Exciting times ahead for the project!
