MiR: October 2008

I've settled into a routine this month that consists of daily building the latest SMX4 Kernel, NMR, and Features code from SVN and checking for any AIX specific errors. While nightly continuous integration testing works great for automating the discovery & identification of issues I find that this manual approach has been quite fruitful (When no issues are found I just move on to other JIRAs in the SMX4 projects). 

Common AIX issues I've seen this month include updates to the classpath and JVM security settings to work around IBM JDK differences in comparison to Sun, and some defensive coding around annotations.
