Thanks to Jarod Jenson (of DTrace and Aeysis fame), I now have a shiny new 512MB iPod shuffle to give away to a worthy OpenSolaris cause. Back when I posted my original MDB challenge, I had no cool stuff to entice potential suitors. So now I’ll offer this iPod shuffle to the first person who submits an acceptable solution to the problem and follows through to integrate the code into OpenSolaris (I will sponsor any such RFE). Send your diffs against the latest OpenSolaris source to me at eric dot schrock at sun dot com. We’ll put a time limit of, say, a month and a half (until 10/1) so that I can safely recycle the iPod shuffle into another challenge should no one respond.
Once again, the original challenge is here.
So besides the fame and glory of integrating the first non-bite size RFE into OpenSolaris, you’ll also walk away with a cool toy. Not to mention all the MDB knowledge you’ll have under your belt. Feel free to email me questions, or head over to the mdb-discuss forum. Good Luck!
