Nice. has started the process of implementing OpenSSL 1.1 API bits while retaining 1.0.2 API compatibility, providing a transition path that OpenSSL never bothered with and avoiding the broken shims downstream projects been forced to incorporate.

I started lurking on the OpenBSD mailing lists in '06/'07, I sent my first trivial kernel diff in '08 which was committed by deraadt@, same year my first port which was tmux, later becoming part of the base system. Got my account in 2012.

I am looking for tests of an diff that affects several drivers: iwn(4), iwm(4), athn(4), wpi(4)

This is in response to marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=15 (⚠️ potential confusion alert: That post contains top-posting!)

I had played around with several Unix-like systems, like MINIX & Coherent, but mostly used DOS/Win at home. I had some early exposure to QNX at school thanks to the Ministry of Educations commissioning the "Unisys/Burroughs ICON" computer.

I installed NetBSD after recommendation from a friend I met online, used it briefly to run an IRC and home web server. I don't remember what problem I had now, but I ended up installing OpenBSD and becoming familiar with both the system & community.

There is a meltdown patch in the snapshots. If you were holding out, testing -current now might be a good time try, you may help find problems. #OpenBSD

I got the wifi driver fully working with the open source version of the firmware, now also with AR7010 devices. In fact, it seems to work better now than it ever did 🤗

StackOverflow considered harmful, they should consider buying integeroverflow.com as a fallback service name.

My cat likes to be smacked around a bit-- I feel like I've been unwittingly contributing to its abuse fetishism or something.

Also please remember that hardware donations to individual developers is also very helpful & important: openbsd.org/want.html

kqueue(2): "To effect a poll, the timeout argument should be non-null, pointing to a zero-valued timespec structure."

Hmm, well that's handy, poll on non-blocking kqueue fd.

"""add kqueue support to drm(4) by making the drm_sysfs_hotplug_event() available on OpenBSD well and by notifying listeners of a device state change using EVFILT_DEVICE and NOTE_CHANGE.

drm_sysfs_hotplug_event() gets called when a state change of the device occured, like an hdmi cable has been plugged, this in the future will be used by the modesetting xorg driver to notify desktop environments via randr events to update their screen configuration"""
