I think that would be fine, although... it might be better to ship it
into the normal SharpOS.Kernel namespace if it isn't actually
platform-dependent... it could be used in other non-ADC APIs as well,
no?

Re: processor family Name and model Name patch

Thank you for the patch! It's on my list of patches to evaluate.

This would be my choice... this would only introduce more complicated
code... what may be a better idea would be to allow filesystem drivers
to add rules or somehow extend the globbing :-) That way, all the
standard globbing constructs will work everywhere, and if you know the
result is going to be on a certain kind of filesystem, then you can
use the extensions. The interface to use in the filesystem drivers is
non-obvious for sure but it's worth looking into.

How about a metadata FS? Granted, the same could be done with some
virtual directories and special handling but you could do:

Drivers and stuff

Hi everyone, it's been a long time I've been absent.
I have a hard time preparing for exams and work is
consuming the rest of my time :(
Anyway, I'm watching the project as always and I've
seen that someone started working on VGA (a stub?).
To the point, to not to duplicate efforts: I have some
(basic) work started on from a few months ago and
stalled... It's based on JNode's driver which is LGPL
licensed. LGPL should be portable to GPL, but don't
take my words for granted, not sure about the class
path exception and version compatibility, can
someone confirm? Shall I update it to use the latest
driver architecture and make a patch? Someone
want to take it over?

Re: Drivers and stuff

If you are referring to the VGA driver in my sandbox, I have not done
anything more with it. Please feel free to continue working on your
VGA driver, or send it to me and I will include it in my sandbox for
future use.

I'm not a lawyer; however, if you just use JNodes as a reference
implementation only - no copy/paste and write your own implementation
from scratch, I think you would be fine. Plus, there is a lot of
information on VGA documentation available on the Internet to drawn
from (besides source code).

But if doubt, the ReactOS has a good policy regarding the copyright of others:

Meeting this coming Saturday?

Perhaps we should convene a meeting to discuss the state of SharpOS
and help coordinate development. In the past we've had meetings on
Saturday at 1800/1900 UTC ... does this sound good for our current
bunch of interested parties?

Preliminary topics (please discuss additions/changes):
* Logging: we need to revise our IRC logging mechanisms. We have
Sharpbot but he does not have a maintainer nor a permanent host
(although a few of the board members have been trying to fill some of
the gaps). The code needs to be profiled and checked for memory and
performance bugs, which has presented issues with previous hosts.

* New meeting scheme: It might be a good idea to standardize a
dual-session meeting model to better accommodate our disparate time
zones. Basically we'd have two meeting times and you can go to
whichever is more convenient for your schedule. We would decide on
meeting topics ahead of time.

* Coding style: we currently follow Mono's coding style guides, but
few if any of us follow it to the tee. There may be exceptions that we
wish to adopt.

* Brief on current projects, find volunteers for much needed projects
(documentation, korlib work and corlib integration, complete string
support, more testcases for the AOT, reflection support, rewrite the
console using objects and many others)

* Others?

Re: Big Source Files

Use the partial feature in C# and group things, which belong together.

Hi

As I am working on improving the x86 encoding towards JIT and so on and as
there were some rantings about the huge generated files, I want to ask you
guys if you want like many many small files or only one big file as is now
for the generated stuff?

Re: Big Source Files

In concurrence with grover, if possible, partial classes to group up related portions. (I usually use an extra period in the filename so that all such related files are prefixed the same.)
 
But I personally have no problem with the "huge" generated files...
