  • Charles Plessy: Thank you, VAIO
    I use everyday a VAIO Pro mk2 that I bought 5 years ago with 3 years of warranty. It has been a few months that I was noticing that something was slowly inflating inside. In July, things accelerated to the point that its thickness had doubled. After we called the customer service of VAIO, (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20200808-debconf8
    DebConf8 This tshirt is 12 years old and from DebConf8. DebConf8 was my 6th DebConf and took place in Mar de la Plata, Argentina. Also this is my 6th post in this series of posts about DebConfs and for the last two days for the first time I failed my plan to do one post per day. And while (...)

  • Thorsten Alteholz: My Debian Activities in July 2020
    FTP master This month I accepted 434 packages and rejected 54. The overall number of packages that got accepted was 475. Debian LTS This was my seventy-third month that I did some work for the Debian LTS initiative, started by Raphael Hertzog at Freexian. This month my all in all workload (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RVowpalWabbit 0.0.15: Some More CRAN Build Issues
    Another maintenance RVowpalWabbit package update brought us to version 0.0.15 earlier today. We attempted to fix one compilation error on Solaris, and addressed a few SAN/UBSAN issues with the gcc build. As noted before, there is a newer package rvw based on the excellent GSoC 2018 and beyond (...)

  • Fran?ois Marier: Setting the default web browser on Debian and Ubuntu
    If you are wondering what your default web browser is set to on a Debian-based system, there are several things to look at: $ xdg-settings get default-web-browser brave-browser.desktop $ xdg-mime query default x-scheme-handler/http brave-browser.desktop $ xdg-mime query default (...)

  • Jelmer Vernooij: Improvements to Merge Proposals by the Janitor
    The Debian Janitor is an automated system that commits fixes for (minor) issues in Debian packages that can be fixed by software. It gradually started proposing merges in early December. The first set of changes sent out ran lintian-brush on sid packages maintained in Git. This post is part of (...)

  • Antonio Terceiro: When community service providers fail
    I'm starting a new blog, and instead of going into the technical details on how it's made, or on how I migrated my content from the previous ones, I want focus on why I did it. It's been a while since I have written a blog post. I wanted to get back into it, but also wanted to (...)

  • Jonathan Dowland: Vimwiki
    At the start of the year I begun keeping a daily diary for work as a simple text file. I've used various other approaches for this over the years, including many paper diaries and more complex digital systems. One great advantage of the one-page text file was it made assembling my weekly (...)

  • Reproducible Builds (diffoscope): diffoscope 155 released
    The diffoscope maintainers are pleased to announce the release of diffoscope version 155. This version includes the following changes: [ Chris Lamb ] * Bump Python requirement from 3.6 to 3.7 - most distributions are either shipping3.5 or 3.7, so supporting 3.6 is not somewhat unnecessary and (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: nanotime 0.3.0: Yuge New Features!
    A fresh major release of the nanotime package for working with nanosecond timestamps is hitting CRAN mirrors right now. nanotime relies on the RcppCCTZ package for (efficient) high(er) resolution time parsing and formatting up to nanosecond resolution, and the bit64 package for the actual (...)

  • Chris Lamb: The Bringers of Beethoven
    This is a curiously poignant work to me that I doubt I would ever be able to communicate. I found it about fifteen years ago, along with a friend who I am quite regrettably no longer in regular contact with, so there was some complicated nostalgia entangled with rediscovering it today. What (...)

  • Joey Hess: Mr Process's wild ride
    When a unix process is running in a directory, and that directory gets renamed, the process is taken on a ride to a new location in the filesystem. Suddenly, any "../" paths it might be using point to new, and unexpected locations. This can be a source of interesting behavior, and also of (...)

  • Christian Kastner: My new favorite utility: autojump
    Like any developer, I have amassed an impressive collection of directory trees both broad and deep. Navigating these trees became increasingly cumbersome, and setting CDPATH, using auto-completion, and working with the readline history search alleviated this only somewhat. Enter autojump, from (...)

  • Sam Hartman: Good Job Debian: Compatibility back to 1999
    So, I needed a container of Debian Slink (2.1), released back in 1999. I expected this was going to be a long and involved process. Things didn't look good from the start: root@mount-peerless:/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/sqlalchemy# debootstrap slink /build/slink2 (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20200805-debconf7
    DebConf7 This tshirt is 13 years old and from DebConf7. DebConf7 was my 5th DebConf and took place in Edinburgh, Scotland. And finally I could tell people I was a DD Though as you can guess, that's yet another story to be told. So anyway, Edinburgh. I don't recall exactly whether (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: RcppCCTZ 0.2.8: Minor API Extension
    A new minor release 0.2.8 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 (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20200804-debconf6
    DebConf6 This tshirt is 14 years old and from DebConf6. DebConf6 was my 4th DebConf and took place in Oaxtepec, Mexico. I'm a bit exhausted right now which is probably quite fitting to write something about DebConf6... many things in life are a question of perception, so I will mention (...)

  • Giovanni Mascellani: Bye bye Python 2!
    And so, today, while I was browsing updates for my Debian unstable laptop, I noticed that aptitude wouldn't automatically upgrade python2 and related packages (I don't know why, and at this point don't care). So I decided to dare: I removed the python2 package to see what the (...)

  • Sylvain Beucler: Debian LTS and ELTS - July 2020
    Here is my transparent report for my work on the Debian Long Term Support (LTS) and Debian Extended Long Term Support (ELTS), which extend the security support for past Debian releases, as a paid contributor. In July, the monthly sponsored hours were split evenly among contributors depending (...)

  • Molly de Blanc: busy busy
    I've been working with Karen Sandler over the past few months on the first draft of the Declaration of Digital Autonomy. Feedback welcome, please be constructive. It's a pretty big deal for me, and feels like the culmination of a lifetime of experiences and the start of something new. We (...)

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.5 media testing - 202008012055 - post 4 of several
    We've more or less finished testing on the Debian install images. Now moving on to the debian-live images. Bugs found and being triaged live as I type. Lots of typing and noises in the background of the video conference. Now at about 12-14 hours in on this for some of the participants. Lots (...)

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.5 media testing - pause for supper - 202001081715 - post 3 of several
    Various of the folk doing this have taken a food break until 1900 local. A few glitches, a few that needed to be tried over again - but it's all going fairly well. It is likely that at least one of the CD images will be dropped. The XFCE desktop install CD for i386 is now too large to fit (...)

  • Holger Levsen: 20200801-debconf3
    DebConf3 This tshirt is 17 years old and from DebConf3. I should probably wash it at 60 celcius for once... DebConf3 was my first DebConf and took place in Oslo, Norway, in 2003. I was very happy to be invited, like any Debian contributor at that time, and that Debian would provide food and (...)

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.5 media testing - continuing quite happily - 202001081320 - post 2 of several
    We've now settled into a reasonable rhythm: RattusRattus and Isy and Sledge all working away hard in Cambridge: Schweer in Germany and me here in Cheltenham. Lots of chat backwards and forwards and a good deal of work being done, as ever. It's really good to be back in the swing of it (...)

  • Andrew Cater: Debian 10.5 media testing process started 202008011145 - post 1 of several.
    The media testing process has started slightly late. There will be a _long_ testing process over much of the day: the final media image releases are likely to be at about 0200-0300UTC tomorrow. Just settling in for a long day of testing: as ever, it's good to be chatting with my Debian (...)

  • Utkarsh Gupta: FOSS Activites in July 2020
    Here's my (tenth) monthly update about the activities I've done in the F/L/OSS world. Debian This was my 17th month of contributing to Debian. I became a DM in late March last year and a DD last Christmas! \o/ Well, this month I didn't do a lot of Debian stuff, like I usually do, however, I (...)

  • Paul Wise: FLOSS Activities July 2020
    Focus This month I didn't have any particular focus. I just worked on issues in my info bubble. Changes purple-discord: cleanups (1 2) psqlodbc: fix test build failure ifenslave fix variable lookup, cleanups (1 2 3 4 5 6 7) dak: cleanup dh-make: typo (1 2) Debian QA services: fix lintian (...)

  • Junichi Uekawa: August and feels like it finally.
    August and feels like it finally. July didn't feel like July and felt like June because it rained so much. This is summer.

  • Ben Hutchings: Debian LTS work, July 2020
    I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative, but only worked 5 hours this month and returned the remainder to the pool. Now that Debian 9 'stretch' has entered LTS, the stretch-backports suite will be closed and no longer updated. However, some stretch users (...)

  • Chris Lamb: Free software activities in July 2020
  • Jonathan Carter: Free Software Activities for 2020-07
    Here are my uploads for the month of July, which is just a part of my free software activities, I'll try to catch up on the rest in upcoming posts. I haven't indulged in online conferences much over the last few months, but this month I attended the virtual editions of Guadec 2020 and HOPE (...)

  • Fran?ois Marier: Extending GPG key expiry
    Extending the expiry on a GPG key is not very hard, but it's easy to forget a step. Here's how I did my last expiry bump. Update the expiry on the main key and the subkey: gpg --edit-key KEYID > expire > key 1 > expire > save Upload the updated key to the keyservers: gpg --export (...)

  • Norbert Preining: KDE/Plasma Status Update 2020-07-30
    Only a short update on the current status of my KDE/Plasma package for Debian sid and testing: Frameworks 5.72 Plasma 5.19.4 Apps 20.04.3 Digikam 7.0.0 Ark CVE-2020-16116 fixed in version 20.04.3-1~np2 Hope that helps a few people. See this post for how to setup archives. (...)

  • Dima Kogan: An awk corner case?
    So even after years and years of experience, core tools still find ways to surprise me. Today I tried to do some timestamp comparisons with mawk (vnl-filter, to be more precise), and ran into a detail of the language that made it not work. Not a bug, I guess, since both mawk and gawk are (...)

  • Enrico Zini: Building and packaging a sysroot
    This is part of a series of posts on compiling a custom version of Qt5 in order to develop for both amd64 and a Raspberry Pi. After having had some success with a sysroot in having a Qt5 cross-build environment that includes QtWebEngine, the next step is packaging the sysroot so it can be (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: Installing and Running Ubuntu on a 2015-ish MacBook Air
    So a few months ago kiddo one dropped an apparently fairly large cup of coffee onto her one and only trusted computer. With a few months (then) to graduation (which by now happened), and with the apparent “genuis bar” verdict of “it's a goner” a new one was ordered. As (...)

  • Chris Lamb: Pop culture matters
  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: ttdo 0.0.6: Bugfix
    A bugfix release of our (still small) ttdo package arrived on CRAN overnight. As introduced last fall, the ttdo package extends the most excellent (and very minimal / zero depends) unit testing package tinytest by Mark van der Loo with the very clever and well-done diffobj package by Brodie (...)

  • Jonathan Carter: Free Software Activities for 2020-06
    Hmm, this is the latest I've posted my monthly updates yet (nearly by a month!). June was both crazy on the incoming side, and at the same time I just wasn't that productive (at least since then I caught up a lot). In theory, lockdown means that I spend less time in traffic, in shops or with (...)
