IT'S IN!!!!! #openbsd #wifi #g2k18 #hackathon

"""Introduce 'auto-join' to the wifi 802.11 stack.

This allows a system to remember which ESSIDs it wants to connect to, any
relevant security configuration, and switch to it when the network we are currently connected to is no longer available.

Works when connecting and switching between WPA2/WPA1/WEP/clear encryptions.

example hostname.if:
join home wpakey password
join work wpakey mekmitasdigoat
join open-lounge
dhcp
inet6 autoconf
up

Bob Beck's pledge/unveil talk is the "but one more thing!" talk that the BSD community deserves.

Mike Burns boosted

It's exciting to hear Bob Beck and Theo De Raadt (in the audience) explain the new unveil call and the reasonings for behavior and why it has landed the way it is landing.

#BSDCan #OpenBSD

#BSDCan (Tragedy of #SystemD): Such a large amount of change can cause a knee-jerk reaction.

Abuse isn't cool. Lennart has received death threats.

Contempt isn't cool. Mocking SystemD is equally uncool.

We in the BSDs don't really want to bring an attitude of abuse or contempt.

[Personal note: I've received both death threats and mocking from the BSD community for my involvement in #HardenedBSD. It's refreshing to see this kind of conversation from Benno.]
