MiniDebCamp Hamburg - Thursday 17/5

I missed my flight on Wednesday, and for a moment I thought I would have to cancel my attendance, but luckily I was able to buy a ticket for Thursday for a good price.

I arrived at the venue just in time for a "stand-up" meeting, where people introduced themselves and shared what are they working on / planning to work on. That gave me a great feeling, having an idea of what other people are doing, and gave me motivation to work on my projects.

The venue seems to be some kind of cooperative, with office space for different associations, there is also a small guest house (where I am sleeping), and a "cantina". The building seems very pretty, but is going through some renovations, so the scaffolding does not let you see it much. It also has a big outdoors area, which is always welcomed.

I had a good chat about mapping support in IkiWiki, so my rewrite of the OSM plugin might get some users even before it is completely merged!

I also worked for a while on Prometheus packages, I am hoping to finally get a new version of prometheus-alertmanager packaged soon.

I realised I still had some repos in my home directory in alioth, so I moved these away to salsa. On the same vein, I started discussions about migrating my data-collection scripts for contributors.d.o to salsa; this is quite important if we want to keep contributors being relevant and useful.
