Thanks for the roadmap. This is a vision I can support and I
particularly support spelling out clearly a plan in advance.
I still also have hopes to work on parts of that roadmap and if I get
the time I'll certainly let you know so we don't double up.
In particular I did mention I (Catalyst really) has a small amount of
time allocated for the testing parts, no more than a week full time
really. My plan was to put that into some of the tests that manually
re-encode the outgoing packet in the krb5.kdc.canon.
But neither do I want to duplicate the work you already have in
I know I've been working with you for ages, but I still don't have
confidence on how to approach collaborating on your WIP branches. I
just get overwhelmed with a sea of (often reverted) patches with commit
messages that mean far more to you than me, and naturally missing the
Signed-off-by because they are unfinished.
How, given this and the time constraints, can I/we usefully contribute?
It is better to just build on master a few more tests (eg add to
simple_tests) or can you give me a roadmap to your branch for some
small aspect that can be carved off and finished? (And if so, any
guidelines on how to work with your commits)?
