  • Chris Lamb: Slack integration for Django
    I recently started using the Slack group chat tool in a few teams. Wishing to add some vanity notifications such as sales and user growth milestones from some Django-based projects, I put together an easy-to-use integration between the two called django-slack. Whilst you can use any generic (...)

  • Richard Hartmann: Release Critical Bug report for Week 04
    The UDD bugs interface currently knows about the following release critical bugs: In Total: 1117 (Including 191 bugs affecting key packages) Affecting Jessie: 187 (key packages: 116) That's the number we need to get down to zero before the release. They can be split in two big categories: (...)

  • Enrico Zini: mozilla-facepalm
    Mozilla marketplace facepalm This made me sad. My view, which didn't seem to be considered in that discussion, is that people concerned about software freedom and security are likely to stay the hell away from such an app market and its feedback forms. Also, that thread made me so sad (...)

  • Jaldhar Vyas: Mini-Debconf Mumbai 2015
    Last weekend I went to Mumbai to attend the Mini-Debconf held at IIT-Bombay. These are my impressions of the trip. Arrival and Impressions of Mumbai Getting there was a quite an adventure in itself. Unlike during my ill-fated attempt to visit a Debian event in Kerala last year when a (...)

  • Michael Prokop: check-mk: monitor switches for GBit links
    For one of our customers we are using the Open Monitoring Distribution which includes Check_MK as monitoring system. We're monitoring the switches (Cisco) via SNMP. The switches as well as all the servers support GBit connections, though there are some systems in the wild which are still (...)

  • Tomasz Buchert: Expired keys in Debian keyring
    A new version of Stellarium was recently released (0.13.2), so I wanted to upload it to Debian unstable as I usually do. And so I did, but it was rejected without me even knowing, since I got no e-mail response from ftp-masters. It turns out that my GPG key in the Debian keyring expired (...)

  • Chris Lamb: Sprezzatura
    Wolf Hall on Twitter et al: He says, "Majesty, we were talking of Castiglione's book. You have found time to read it?" "Indeed. He extrolls sprezzatura. The art of doing everything gracefully and well, without the appearance of effort. A quality princes should cultivate." "Yes. But (...)

  • Enrico Zini: miniscreen
    Playing with python, terminfo and command output I am experimenting with showing progress on the terminal for a subcommand that is being run, showing what is happening without scrolling away the output of the main program, and I came out with this little toy. It shows the last X lines of a (...)

  • Jonathan McDowell: Moving to Jekyll
    I've been meaning to move away from Movable Type for a while; they no longer provide the “Open Source” variant, I've had some issues with the commenting side of things (more the fault of spammers than Movable Type itself) and there are a few minor niggles that I wanted to resolve. (...)

  • Jo Shields: mono-project.com Linux packages, January 2015 edition
    The latest version of Mono has released (actually, it happened a week ago, but it took me a while to get all sorts of exciting new features bug-checked and shipshape). Stable packages This release covers Mono 3.12, and MonoDevelop 5.7. These are built for all the same targets as last time, (...)

  • Dimitri John Ledkov: Python 3 ports of launchpadlib & ubuntu-dev-tools (library) are available
    I'm happy to announce that Python 3 ports of launchpadlib & ubuntu-dev-tools (library) are available for consumption. These are 1.10.3 & 0.155 respectfully. This means that everyone should start porting their reports, tools, and scriptage to python3. ubuntu-dev-tools has the library (...)

  • Jonathan Wiltshire: Never too late for bug-squashing
  • Sven Hoexter: Heads up: possible changes in fonts-lyx
    Today the super nice upstream developers of LyX reached out to me (and pelle@) as the former and still part time lyx package maintainers to inform us of an ongoing discussion in http://www.lyx.org/trac/ticket/9229. The current aproach to fix this bug might result in a name change of all fonts (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: Quantifying the performance of the Microserver
    In my earlier blog about choosing a storage controller, I mentioned that the Microserver's on-board AMD SB820M SATA controller doesn't quite let the SSDs perform at their best. Just how bad is it? I did run some tests with the fio benchmarking utility. Lets have a look at those (...)

  • Sven Hoexter: python-ipcalc bumped from 0.3 to 1.1.3
    I've helped a friend to get started with Debian packaging and he has now adopted python-ipcalc. Since I've no prior experience with packaging of Python modules and there were five years of upstream development in between, I've uploaded to experimental to give it some exposure. So (...)

  • Raphael Geissert: Edit Debian, with iceweasel
    Soon after publishing the chromium/chrome extension that allows you to edit Debian online, Moez Bouhlel sent a pull request to the extension's git repository: all the changes needed to make a firefox extension! After another session of browser extensions discovery, I merged the commits and (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: jSMPP project update, 2.1.1 and 2.2.1 releases
    The jSMPP project on Github stopped processing pull requests over a year ago and appeared to be needing some help. I've recently started hosting it under https://github.com/opentelecoms-org/jsmpp and tried to merge some of the backlog of pull requests myself. There have been new releases: (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: Storage controllers for small Linux NFS networks
    While contemplating the disk capacity upgrade for my Microserver at home, I've also been thinking about adding a proper storage controller. Currently I just use the built-in controller in the Microserver. It is an AMD SB820M SATA controller. It is a bottleneck for the SSD IOPS. On the (...)

  • Jonathan Wiltshire: Alcester BSP, day three
    We have had a rather more successful weekend then I feared, as you can see from our log on the wiki page. Steve reproduced and wrote patches for several installer/bootloader bugs, and Neil and I spent significant time in a maze of twist zope packages (we have managed to provide more diagnostics (...)

  • Gregor Herrmann: RC bugs 2014/51-2015/03
    I have to admit that I was a bit lazy when it comes to working on RC bugs in the last weeks. here's my not-so-stellar summary: #729220 – pdl: "pdl: problems upgrading from wheezy due to triggers" investigate (unsuccessfully), later fixed by maintainer #772868 – gxine: "gxine: (...)

  • Mark Brown: Heating the Internet of Things
  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: Running UBSAN tests via clang with Rocker
    Every now and then we get reports from CRAN about our packages failing a test there. A challenging one concerns UBSAN, or Undefined Behaviour Sanitizer. For background on UBSAN, see this RedHat blog post for gcc and this one from LLVM about clang. I had written briefly about this before in a (...)

  • EvolvisForge blog: Debian/m68k hacking weekend cleanup
    OK, time to clean up ↳ tarent so people can work again tomorrow. Not much to clean though (the participants were nice and cleaned up after themselves ☺), so it's mostly putting stuff back to where it belongs. Oh, and drinking more of the cool Belgian beer Geert (Linux upstream) (...)

  • Andreas Metzler: Another new toy
  • Chris Lamb: Adjusting a backing track with SoX
    Earlier today I came across some classical sheet music that included a "playalong" CD, just like a regular recording except it omits the solo cello part. After a quick listen it became clear there were two problems: The recording was made at A=442, rather than the more standard A=440. The tempi (...)

  • Ian Campbell: Using Grub 2 as a bootloader for Xen PV guests on Debian Jessie
    I recently wrote a blog post on using grub 2 as a Xen PV bootloader for work. See Using Grub 2 as a bootloader for Xen PV guests over on https://blog.xenproject.org. Rather than repeat the whole thing here I'll just briefly cover the stuff which is of interest for Debian users (if you want (...)

  • Guido G?nther: whatmaps 0.0.9
    I have released whatmaps 0.0.9 a tool to check which processes map shared objects of a certain package. It can integrate into apt to automatically restart services after a security upgrade. This release fixes the integration with recent systemd (as in Debian Jessie), makes logging more (...)

  • Rog?rio Brito: Uploading SICP to Youtube
    Intro I am not alone in considering Harold Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman's recorded lectures based on their book "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" is a masterpiece. There are many things to like about the content of the lectures, beginning with some pearls and wisdom (...)

  • Jonathan Wiltshire: Alcester BSP, day two
    Neil has abandoned his reputation as an RM machine, and instead concentrated on making the delayed queue as long as he can. I'm reliably informed that it's now at a 3-year high. Steve is delighted that his reigning-in work is finally having an effect. Alcester BSP, day two is a post from: (...)

  • Tim Retout: CPAN PR Challenge - January - IO-Digest
    I signed up to the CPAN Pull Request Challenge - apparently I'm entrant 170 of a few hundred. My assigned dist for January was IO-Digest - this seems a fairly stable module. To get the ball rolling, I fixed the README, but this was somehow unsatisfying. :) To follow-up, I added Travis-CI (...)

  • Ulrike Uhlig: Updating a profile in Debian's apparmor-profiles-extra package
  • Guido G?nther: krb5-auth-dialog 3.15.4
    To keep up with GNOMEs schedule I've released krb5-auth-dialog 3.15.4. The changes of 3.15.1 and 3.15.4 include among updated translations, the replacement of deprecated GTK+ widgets, minor UI cleanups and bug fixes a header bar fix that makes us only use header bar buttons iff the desktop (...)

    What's that? The third edition of Link Pack of course!

I love the Power Glove, it's so bad. The Power (...)

  • Jonathan Wiltshire: Alcester BSP, day one
    Perhaps I should say evening one, since we didn't get going until nine or so. I have mostly been processing unblocks – 13 in all. We have a delayed upload and a downgrade in the pipeline, plus a tested diff for Django. Predictably, Neil had the one and only removal request so far. (...)

  • Erich Schubert: Year 2014 in Review as Seen by a Trend Detection System
    We ran our trend detection tool Signi-Trend (published at KDD 2014) on news articles collected for the year 2014. We removed the category of financial news, which is overrepresented in the data set. Below are the (described) results, from the top 50 trends (I will push the raw result to appspot (...)

  • EvolvisForge blog: Debian/m68k hacking weekend commencing soonish
    As I said, I did not certain events that begun with “lea” and end with “ing” prevent me from organising a Debian/m68k hack weekend. Well, that weekend is now. I'm too unorganised, and I spent too much time in the last few evenings to organise things so I built up a (...)
