  • Ben Hutchings: Debian LTS work, February 2015
    This was my third month working on Debian LTS, and the first where I actually uploaded packages. I also worked on userland packages for the first time. In the middle of February I finished and uploaded a security update for the kernel package (linux-2.6 version 2.6.32-48squeeze11, DLA 155-1). (...)

  • Petter Reinholdtsen: The Citizenfour documentary on the Snowden confirmations to Norway
    Today I was happy to learn that the documentary Citizenfour by Laura Poitras finally will show up in Norway. According to the magazine Montages, a deal has finally been made for Cinema distribution in Norway and the movie will have its premiere soon. This is great news. As part of my (...)

  • Mathieu Parent: Hello Planet Debian
    After more than five years of being a Debian developer, here is my first post on Planet Debian! I currently maintain 165 packages. My focus has changed since 2009, but those are still mostly sysadmin packages: ctdb (under the pkg-samba umbrella), the clustered database used by samba c-icap and (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RcppEigen
    A new release of RcppEigen is now on CRAN and in Debian. It synchronizes the Eigen code with the 3.2.4 upstream release, and updates the RcppEigen.package.skeleton() package creation helper to use the kitten() function from pkgKitten for enhanced package creation. The NEWS file entry follows. (...)

  • Gunnar Wolf: Welcome to the world, little ones!
    Welcome little babies! Yesterday night, we entered the hospital. Nervous, heavy, and... Well, would we ever be ready? As ready as we could. A couple of hours later, Alan and Elena Wolf Daichman became individuals on their own right. As is often the case in the case of twins, they were brought (...)

  • Richard Hartmann: Release Critical Bug report for Week 09
    The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs: In Total: 1072 (Including 181 bugs affecting key packages) Affecting Jessie: 152 (key packages: 117) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories: (...)

  • Enrico Zini: python-api-stability
    Another day in the life of a poor developer try: # After Python 3.3 from collections.abc import Iterable except ImportError: # This has changed in Python 3.3 (why, oh why?), reinforcing the idea that # the best Python version ever is still 2.7, simply because upstream has # promised that they (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RcppArmadillo 0.4.650.1.1 (and also 0.4.650.2.0)
    A new Armadillo release 4.650.1 was released by Conrad a few days ago. Armadillo is a powerful and expressive C++ template library for linear algebra aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use with a syntax deliberately close to a Matlab. It turned out that this release had (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: PostBooks accounting and ERP suite coming to Fedora
    PostBooks has been successful on Debian and Ubuntu for a while now and for all those who asked, it is finally coming to Fedora. The review request has just been submitted and the spec files have also been submitted to xTuple as pull requests so future upstream releases can be used with (...)

  • EvolvisForge blog: tomcat7 log encoding
    TIL: the encoding of the catalina.out file is dependent on the system locale, using standard Debian wheezy tomcat7 package. Fix for ‘?' instead of umlauts in it: cat >>/etc/default/tomcat7 My “problem” here is that I have the system locale be the “C” locale, to (...)

  • EvolvisForge blog: tomcat7 init script is asynchronous
    TIL: the init script of tomcat7 in Debian is asynchronous. For some piece of software, our rollout (install and upgrade) process works like this: service tomcat7 stop rm -rf /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/appname,.war cp newfile.war /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/appname.war service tomcat7 start # (...)

  • Michael Banck: 26 Feb 2015
    My recent Debian LTS activities Over the past months, my employer credativ has sponsored some of my work time to keep PostgreSQL updated for squeeze-lts. Version 8.4 of PostgreSQL was declared end-of-life by the upstream PostgreSQL Global Development Group (PGDG) last summer, around the same (...)

  • Wouter Verhelst: Dear non-Belgian web developer,
    Localization in the web context is hard, I know. To make things easier, it may seem like a good idea to use GeoIP to detect what country an IP is coming from and default your localization based on that. While I disagree with that premise, this blog post isn't about that. Instead, it's (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20150225-apparmor-user-stories
    Developing is a use case too For whatever reason Ulrike's blog post about AppArmor user stories and user tags was not syndicated to planet.d.o, despite it should have been and despite planet admins nicely having looked into it. Whatever... As you might have guessed by now, the user (...)

  • Joachim Breitner: DarcsWatch End-Of-Life'd
    Almost seven years ago, at a time when the “VCS wars” have not even properly started yet, GitHub was seven days old and most Haskell related software projects were using Darcs as their version control system of choice, when you submitted a patch, you simply ran darcs send and mail (...)
