Meetings and Events
After my programme at this year's BSDCan on clash of the package managers, using the integration of Python's PEP-517 standard into FreeBSD Ports to illustrate challenges, nuances and schemes between different systems, it was suggested that a FreeBSD Journal article be written to provide some more detail on PEP-517 integration specifically. Given that it took about a year to actually commit, much of which did not involve writing any code, we take a dive into the design and architectural decisions that resulted in the committed form, as well as future considerations.
Charlie Li is FreeBSD Ports committer focusing on GTK-based desktops, Python stuff, a little Rust and of course ham radio (callsign: K3CL). Sometimes works at a transit agency. Otherwise lurking across eastern PA with occasional trolling elsewhere.
Offsite Participation: We plan to stream via NYC*BUG Website unless the speaker requests otherwise. Q&A will be via IRC on Libera.chat channel #nycbug - Please preface your questions with '[Q]'
