Please find below some extra information for the KernelCI
Hackfest which is taking place next week. We're expecting at
least some contributors from the Civil Infrastructure Platform
project, the Google Chrome OS kernel team, Collabora kernel
developers and a few more from the wider Linux kernel community.
If you need any direct support, please reply to this email or ask
on kernelci.slack.com or IRC #kernelci (libera.chat).
> Here's the project board where anyone can already add some ideas:
In order to add an issue to the workboard, please first create
one in a KernelCI GitHub repository such as kernelci-core:
Each contributor to the hackfest should be added to the
KernelCI "hackers" team, which has permission to edit the
workboard. If you aren't part of this team yet, please ask and
you'll be invited.
Note: Having a GitHub account is not mandatory for taking part in
the hackfest. It's mainly there to facilitate coordination, even
though it is required in order to contribute to the KernelCI
GitHub repositories. Contributions as part of the hackfest may
also be in the kernel tree such as improvements to kselftest,
KUnit or bug fixes, or other test suites such as LTP etc.

Please see the table below with the proposed daily open hours to
accommodate most time zones:
Region Zone Time 1 Time 2
East Asia GMT+10 17:00-19:00 03:00-05:00
Europe GMT+2 09:00-11:00 19:00-21:00
UTC 07:00-09:00 17:00-19:00
West America GMT-7 00:00-02:00 10:00-12:00
They will be held as a Big Blue Button virtual conference with
the same URL as the last hackfest. It's not being shared
publicly to avoid any potential abuse, so please ask if you don't
have it already.
On Monday, the focus should be put on getting started and
reviewing the backlog on the hackfest workboard to distribute
things among people or help new contributors find topics suitable
for them. Open hours are otherwise opportunities to get more
direct support from the KernelCI team or discuss any topic.
See you there!
