netfilter developer workshop 2007 is over

The days of the netfilter workshop passed quite fast, and I'm finally back to my home in Berlin now. In case you're interested, here is a link to the group photo.

Among other things, we've had the following major decisions at the workshop:

  • Patrick McHardy finally officially head of the coreteam
  • ulogd2 will see an official release candidate soon
  • we want to merge ipset soon
  • we will try to shift future developments in the direction of libnl and slowly deprecate libnetfilter_*
  • we will move the netfilter and netfilter-devel lists to since we don't have to care about spam filtering there. Other, lower-traffic lists remain on
  • we will switch to git even for userspace code, at least for the iptables source code

Finally, I'd like to use this opportunity to thank all our Workshop sponsors, particularly Astaro for their continuous and generous support of netfilter/iptables throughout the last five years.
