Week 5 (June 20 to June 27)

Day 1 (June 20)

I managed to get my commits rebased and merged ready for upstream merge today… finally! It still took quite a while but I managed to sort out the conflicts as they came and it's all come together quite nicely. I also realised I've forgotten to sign off all my commits as they are committed, so I went through and signed them all off as well.

Still not sure if the new set of commits needs work before upstream merge, but it is at least far cleaner than the development branch.

I'm certainly glad I'm not using SVN right now :)

Day 2 (June 21)

This evening I mainly read up on DHCPv6. Whilst I have read the specification, there is a wealth of information on the Internet that covers real-world usage cases - something that the RFC alone cannot tell me about.

DHCPv6 by Shane Kerr (ISC) - 2006. An overview of the protocol in light of stateless autoconfiguration. Wikipedia's overview is sparse but links to the relevant RFCs. TCP/IP Guide pages on DHCPv6. I've always found the TCP/IP guide to be very useful, and it's IPv6 overview is handy. ISC's dhcpd - source code and documentation for the ISC dhcpd, which supports IPv6.
