Tim Meusel - Monday, Feb 6, 16:20 - 17:00 - B1.015

Vox Pupuli is a group of more than 80 puppet module/tooling/documentation authors, all working together to ensure a continuing development process. We elected our first Project Management Committee with one of its goals being to include Vox Pupuli as an official project under the Software Conservancy. We do not only provide a home for every orphaned puppet module, but also proper tooling and automation for every interested developer. Some of the most frequently used puppet modules (zabbix, collectd, archive, extlib) are managed by us. Have a look at our funny journey of hunting broken gems and changing upstream software! We invite everybody to participate. We will get into the details of what Vox Pupuli is, how you can interact/contribute/benefit and also we will share some funny and sad stories about all the bugs we discovered in the Puppet and Ruby ecosystem!
