vchan and conduit

  • JonL not had a chance to look at vchan. Hopefully will have more time soon.
  • It comes up during the logging discussions and etc.
  • Mindy has used conduit, but can't really answer q's for others. Reminder that Conduit is a an abstraction over networking things, including vchan.


  • Jeremy submitted a patch and Thomas merged.
  • JonL made it work this time (possible that last time was due to older MiniOS). Had to pin mirage-xen-bootvar repo as released version didn't work.
  • Magnus has been looking after that. Has merged all patches submitted and will check if we need a release. Mindy and JonL will then try.
  • Drup's patch is important to look at. That was also merged last night. Folks should try Functoria master branch.

Unikernel Events

Cloud Innovator Forum — Submitted three proposals. Some would rather be at dev/winter but will submit anyway. Jeremy can help prep something. Dan will submit a talk to CIF16.

Unikernel install party — Some folks would like this. Who's going to lead? Needs a date (Feb 22nd?). Mindy can help but not be responsible for organisation.

MirageOS hackathon — Seems there are a bunch of ppl interested.

Blog posts

MirageOS end-of-year review — Status update. Jeremy made a list of things to look at. If someone from community with an outsider perspective would like to help with this, that would be great. Our understanding is that Anil will write this.

Unikernel.org post - Ok to merge?

Charrua post - Will merge this post tomorrow. Mort to check things work.

Pioneer Projects

1 star projects — Should review the list. Email list to ask for more projects. Maybe add time-rating.

Outreachy — One student will be working on NTP. Should invite them to join the calls.

Last call of 2015!

Happy holidays!



  • TL been adding netback support. Messing with Dave's and it's working and can send packets. Looking at Mindy's NAT lib - soon to make firewall for QubesOS!

  • The next call is scheduled for NEXT YEAR! Please add any agenda items you wish to discuss in advance and refer to the mailing list for actual details a day or so in advance.
