  • Lucas Nussbaum: Debian trivia
    After an intensive evening of brainstorming by the 5th floor cabal, I am happy to release the very first version of the Debian Trivia, modeled after the famous TCP/IP Drinking Game. Only the questions are listed here — maybe they should go (with the answers) into a package? Anyone willing (...)

  • Alexander Wirt: cgit on alioth.debian.org
    Recently I was doing some work on the alioth infrastructure like fixing things or cleaning up things. One of the more visible things I done was the switch from gitweb to cgit. cgit is a lot of faster and looks better than gitweb. The list of repositories is generated every hour. The move also (...)

  • Francois Marier: Outsourcing your webapp maintenance to Debian
    Modern web applications are much more complicated than the simple Perl CGI scripts or PHP pages of the past. They usually start with a framework and include lots of external components both on the front-end and on the back-end. Here's an example from the Node.js back-end of a real (...)

  • John Goerzen: 2AM to Seattle
    Monday morning, 1:45AM. Laura and I walk into the boys' room. We turn on the light. Nothing happens. (They're sound sleepers.) “Boys, it's time to get up to go get on the train!” Four eyes pop open. “Yay! Oh I'm so excited!” And then, “Meow!” (They enjoy (...)

  • Joachim Breitner: DebConf 14
  • Gergely Nagy: Happy
    For the past decade or so, I wasn't exactly happy. I struggled with low self esteem, likely bordered on depression at times. I disappointed friends, family and most of all, myself. There were times I not only disliked the person I was, but hated it. This wasn't healthy, nor (...)

  • Matthew Palmer: Chromium tabs crashing and not rendering correctly?
    If you've noticed your chrome/chromium on Linux having problems since you upgraded to somewhere around version 35/36, you're not alone. Thankfully, it's relatively easy to workaround. It will hit people who keep their browser open for a long time, or who have lots of tabs (or if you're like me, (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: BH release 1.54.0-4
    Another small new release of our BH package providing Boost headers for use by R is now on CRAN. This one brings a one-file change: the file any.hpp comprising the Boost.Any library --- as requested by a fellow package maintainer needing it for a pending upload to CRAN. No other changes were (...)

  • Bernhard R. Link: Where key expiry dates are useful and where they are not.
    Some recent blog (here and here) suggest short key expiry times. Then also highlight some thing many people forget: The expiry time of a key can be changed every time with just a new self-signature. Especially that can be made retroactively (you cannot avoid that, if you allow changing it: (...)

  • Gunnar Wolf: Ongoing crypto handling discussions
    I love to see there is a lot of crypto discussions going on at DebConf. Maybe I'm skewed by my role as keyring-maint, but I have been involved in more than one discussion every day on what do/should signatures mean, on best key handling practices, on some ideas to make key maintenance (...)

  • Lior Kaplan: The importance of close integration between distribution and upstream
    Many package maintainers need to decide when to upload a new version to Debian. Should the upload be done only after the official release, or is there a place for uploads during the development process. In the latter case there's a need to balance between the benefit of early testing and (...)

  • Simon Josefsson: The Case for Short OpenPGP Key Validity Periods
    After I moved to a new OpenPGP key (see key transition statement) I have received comments about the short life length of my new key. When I created the key (see my GnuPG setup) I set it to expire after 100 days. Some people assumed that I would have to create a new key then, and therefore (...)

  • Daniel Pocock: GSoC talks at DebConf 14 today
    This year I mentored two students doing work in support of Debian and free software (as well as those I mentored for Ganglia). Both of them are presenting details about their work at DebConf 14 today. While Juliana's work has been widely publicised already, mainly due to the fact it is (...)

  • Christian Perrier: [life] Follow bubulle running adventures....
    Just in case some of my free software friends would care and try understanding why I'm currently not attending my first DebConf since 2004... Starting tomorrow 07:00am EST (so, 22:00 PST for Debconfers), I'll be running the "TDS" race of the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc races. (...)

  • Neil Williams: vmdebootstrap images for ARMMP on BBB
    After patches from Petter to add foreign architecture support and picking up some scripting from freedombox, I've just built a Debian unstable image using the ARMMP kernel on Beaglebone-black. A few changes to vmdebootstrap will need to go into the next version (0.3), including an example (...)
