LPC Microconference Proposals

Description

In the Linux ecosystems there are many ways to build all the software used to put together a running system. Whether it’s building all the binary packages for a binary Linux distribution, using a source-based distribution, or building an embedded system from scratch, there are a lot of shared challenges which each system solves in their own way.

This microconference is a way to get people who work on disparate build systems to discuss common problems and possible shared solutions across the entire problem space.

Suggested topics:

  • Bootstrapping the build system
  • Cross building software
  • Make, autoconf, and other similar software build tools
  • Package build systems, bitbake, emerge/portage, pacman, etc
  • Packaging formats
  • Managing software with language specific package managers
  • Patch sharing
  • License gathering and verification
  • Security updates
  • SBOMS
  • Software chain-of-trust
  • Repeatable builds
  • Documentation and education
  • Finding the next generation of maintainers
  • Build-system visibility within the wider Plumbers attendees

  • Arch Linux
  • Buildroot
  • ChromeOS build
  • Gentoo
  • OpenEmbedded
