The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, Junes 9.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

    Git Bisect Your Way to Fame and Fortune

    Hit a bug that no one is fixing? Don't know enough C to debug
    it yourself? In this month's presentation, Trevor Cordes will
    discuss using git-bisect(1), in a process from bug discovery
    through to kernel patch commit. This isn't some dry, isolated
    git rehash either: you'll see how to leverage distro resources
    and integrate them with "vanilla", all from a non-kernel hacker
    perspective. You'll also learn how to get the necessary
    attention of the appropriate movers and shakers. Wrapped in a
    riveting story containing angry wives, Downton Abbey, and a
    twist ending, this is one presentation you don't want to miss!

    This month's RTFM segment will feature fail2ban(1), a versatile
    tool for blocking network abusers, presented by Gilbert

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

    Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1M28,
    Manitoba Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
    between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

    Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
    on nearby streets.  Look for signage once you're at the building,
    or ask a security guard.
