G'day folk,

This is a quick note to let you know that papers for the OSDC are due on Monday (13th September 2004) and I don't have enough paper reviewers.

I need people who can review 2-3 papers between Sept 13th and October 8th(ish). There are lots of Perl papers covering all sorts of interesting things.

If you're also experienced with Python or PHP and would be happy to review their papers, your help would be doubly appreciated. We also need reviewers for papers covering:

  • Mozilla's XUL,
  • Lego Micromouse
  • MySQL
  • Embedded Linux
  • CVS and make in system administration
  • Docbook
  • Javascript
  • Firebird

If you think you have some time available to help us out please contact me on

If nothing else you'll have a mini-preview of how great our conference is going to be.

Some of these papers will be submitted blind for refereeing. If you would specifically like to be involved in refereeing please mention that when you contact me.

Thanks heaps.

[davido]: ok, on my ubuntu system getlogin grabs from /proc/self/ loginuid (per strace)
[tye]: disable /proc and then see what it does?
[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
