@dimpase Agreed. I won't consider CMake any time soon, I expect. #Meson looks better, but it's still dependency on Python, under permissive license, and it's development happens on the silos, ATM. So I can't be super excited about it either.
Status: learning #Autotools…
What the scripts are going to replace is way worse. And I don't have time to perform comparative analysis of the gazillion presumably better replacements.
It's ironic that in the bluesky report, there is only a single contributor that has a non-twitter handle (@Gargron of course) : https://matrix.org/_matrix/media/r0/download/twitter.modular.im/981b258141aa0b197804127cd2f7d298757bad20
Seems like Twitter is literally putting their money where their mouth is.

In the last few days, I've spent time trying to write some C code for RiscOS.
It's kind of neat, very different from other systems I know, and really brings back the same feeling of discovery as when I started programming on the C64 and later the ST.
I'm not sure what my end goal is. Right now I just want to be able to successfully open a window. I'm getting there, slowly.

Update on an Employee Matter

Is there a standardized way to get the KVM (user interface) with just #ipmitool & co. Without any web, JVM, and/or proprietary apps?
Though I can run these in IceCat, via icedtea(-web), and a chroot/container/VM respectively, I expect the standards-based utilities, like `ipmitool`, to be enough for everything, not just a tiny subset of management tasks. Those vendor-specific apps really stink.
