TitleDescriptionRequirementsContactDetails
BSD Arch TestersGentoo/FreeBSD needs more people testing software, hoping that packages stabilization may happen at some point. Looking for a challenge or interested in the features of FreeBSD is welcome.Familiarity with ebuilds, portage, BSD and POSIX standards, no extreme hardware is required any kind of virtual machine will also do. Be bugzilla, mailing list, and irc friendly.bsd@gentoo.orgGentoo/Staffing Needs/BSD Arch Testers
BSD DebuggersEven if the @system set works pretty decently, there are some areas that require deeper investigation, from the clash of the very up-to-date toolchain that we use in Gentoo with the conservative BSD userland, there are some things that don't work 100%, ie: gdb debugging.Experience debugging C code and toolchain bugs, library linking, frame unwinding, etc. Not afraid of running a gcc testsuite, nor afraid of submitting bug reports upstream.bsd@gentoo.orgGentoo/Staffing Needs/BSD Debuggers
BSD Team MembersNew bugs show up almost on each -random package- update, an understaffed team can quickly become demotivated by just looking at the sheer ammount of upgrades that don't build. Thus the more people hunting new bugs, the merrier.Willingness to cooperate with upstream maintainers so that fixes are permanent and they don't spawn again after each bump. Knowledge of alternate POSIX is very welcome.bsd@gentoo.orgGentoo/Staffing Needs/BSD Team Members
