  • Elana Hashman: Three talks at DebConf 2020
    This year has been a really unusual one for in-person events like conferences.

    Another (minor) nanotime release, now at version 0.3.2.

  • Utkarsh Gupta: FOSS Activites in August 2020
  • Russell Coker: BBB vs Jitsi
    I previously wrote about how I installed the Jitsi video-conferencing system on Debian [1]. We used that for a few unofficial meetings of LUV to test it out. Then we installed Big Blue Button (BBB) [2]. The main benefit of Jitsi over BBB is that it supports live streaming to YouTube. The (...)

    A new minor release 0.2.9 of RcppCCTZ is now on CRAN. RcppCCTZ uses Rcpp to bring CCTZ to R. CCTZ is a C++ library for translating between absolute and civil times using the rules of a time zone. In fact, it is two libraries. One for dealing with civil time: human-readable dates and times, and (...)

  • Jacob Adams: Command Line 101
    How to Work in a Text-Only Environment. What is this thing? When you first open a command-line (note that I use the terms command-line and shell interchangably here, they're basically the same, but command-line is the more general term, and shell is the name for the program that executes (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Miscellaneous news
    A fascinating apparent paradox that kind of makes sense: Czech nudists reprimanded by police for not wearing face-masks. Besides being careful about masks when naked at the lake, be careful about your laptop being confused for a pizza: German nudist chases wild boar that stole laptop. Talking (...)

    Dealing with the void during MiniDebConf Online #1 Between 28 and 31 May this year, we set out to create our first ever online MiniDebConf for Debian.

  • Russ Allbery: PGP::Sign 1.02
    This is another test-only release of my module for manipulating PGP signatures in Perl. I'm trying to get the CPAN testing failures down to a dull roar. This iteration fixes some testing issues with systems that have only GnuPG v1 and tries to handle systems whose gpg is GnuPG v2 but is (...)

  • Sven Hoexter: google cloud buster images without python 2
    Update I have to stand corrected. noahm@ wrote me, because the Debian Cloud Image maintainer only ever included python explicitly in Azure images. The most likely explanation for the change in the Google images is that Google just ported the last parts of their own software to python 3, and (...)
