Back in April, Stefan Sperling (stsp@) asked if anyone was interested in using Atheros’s freely licensed sources to build firmware for athn(4) USB wireless cards. I never saw any takers on the mailing list, so when coming up with ideas to work on this hackathon I decided to give it a shot.

I had a very productive hackathon and worked on a lot of different areas.

I started out p2k17 by removing ruby 1.8, 2.1, and 2.2 from the ports tree, along with some ruby 1.8-specific ports. I also removed some old ruby database drivers that are no longer used by anything in the tree.
