  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: digest 0.6.21
    A new version of digest is just now arriving at CRAN (following a slight holdup over one likely spurious reverse dependency error), and I will send an updated package to Debian shortly as well. digest creates hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256, sha-512, crc32, (...)

  • Bernhard R. Link: Firefox 69 dropped support for
    With version 69, firefox removed the support for the feature to easily deploy TLS client certificates. It's kind of sad how used I've become to firefox giving me less and less reasons to use it...

  • Enrico Zini: Upgrading LineageOS 14 to 16
    The LineageOS updater notified me that there will be no more updates for LineageOS 14, because now development on my phone happens on LineageOS 16, so I set aside some time and carefully followed the upgrade instructions. I now have a phone with Lineageos 16, but the whole modem subsystem does (...)

  • Shirish Agarwal: Dissonance, Rakhigiri, one-party system
    I heard the term dissonance or Cognitive dissonance about a year, year and a half back. This is the strategy that BJP used to win in 2014 and in 2019. How much part did EVM's play and how much part did the cognitive dissonance work is hard to tell and define but both have made irreperable (...)

  • Antoine Beaupr?: FSF resignations
    I have been hesitant in renewing my membership to the Free Software Foundation for a while, but now I never want to deal with the FSF until Richard Stallman, president and founder of the free software movement, resigns.

  • Steve Kemp: A slack hack
    So recently I've been on-call, expected to react to events around the clock. Of course to make it more of a challenge alerts are usually raised via messages to a specific channel in slack which come from a variety of sources. Let's pretend I'm all retro/hip and I'm using IRC (...)

  • Neil McGovern: GNOME relationship with GNU and the FSF
  • Sven Hoexter: ansible scp_if_ssh: smart debugging
    I guess that is just one of the things you've to know, so maybe it helps someone else. We saw some warnings in our playbook rollouts like [WARNING]: sftp transfer mechanism failed on []. Use ANSIBLE_DEBUG=1 to see detailed information They were actually reported for sftp and (...)

  • Sam Hartman: Free as in Sausage Making: Inside the Debian Project
    Recently, we've been having some discussion around the use of non-free software and services in doing our Debian work. In judging consensus surrounding a discussion of Git packaging, I said that we do not have a consensus to forbid the use of non-free services like Github. I stand behind that (...)

  • Shirish Agarwal: Freedom, Chandrayaan 2 and Corporations in Space.
    Today will be a longish blogpost so please excuse if you do not want to read a long article. While today is my birthday, I don't feel at all like celebrating. When 8 million Kashmiris are locked down in Kashmir and 19 million to be sent in detention camp, the number may increase, how one one (...)

  • Molly de Blanc: Free software activities (August 2019)

  • Matthew Garrett: It's time to talk about post-RMS Free Software
    Richard Stallman has once again managed to demonstrate incredible insensitivity[1]. There's an argument that in a pure technical universe this is irrelevant and we should instead only consider what he does in free software[2], but free software isn't a purely technical topic - the GNU (...)

  • Dirk Eddelbuettel: ttdo 0.0.3: New package
    A new package of mine arrived on CRAN yesterday, having been uploaded a few days prior on the weekend.

  • Jonas Meurer: debian lts report 2019.08
    Debian LTS report for August 2019 This month I was allocated 10 hours. Unfortunately, I didn't find much time to work on LTS issues, so I only spent 0.5 hours on the task listed below. That means that I carry over 9.5 hours to September. Triaged CVE-2019-13640/qbittorrent: After digging (...)

  • Ben Hutchings: Debian LTS work, August 2019
    I was assigned 20 hours of work by Freexian's Debian LTS initiative and worked all those hours this month. I prepared and, after review, released Linux 3.16.72, including various security and other fixes. I then rebased the Debian package onto that. I uploaded that with a small number of (...)

    I have been working over the last weeks to provide four more services for the TeX (Live) community: an archive of TeX Live's network installation directory tlnet, a git repository of CTAN, a mirror of the TeX Live historic archives, and a new tlpretest mirror. In addition to the services that (...)

  • Erich Schubert: Altmetrics of a Retraction Notice
    As pointed out by RetractionWatch, AltMetrics even tracks the metrics of a retraction notices. This retraction notice has an AltMetric of 9 as I write, and it will grow with every mention on blogs (such as this) and Twitter. Even worse, even just one blog post and one tweet by Retraction watch (...)

  • Jonathan McDowell: Making xinput set-button-map permanent
    Since 2006 I've been buying a Logitech Trackman Marble (or, as Amazon calls it, a USB Marble Mouse) for both my home and work setups (they don't die, I just seem to lose them somehow). It's got a solid feel to it, helps me avoid RSI twinges and when I'm thinking I can take the ball out and play (...)

  • Shirish Agarwal: Depression, Harrapa, Space program
    I was and had been depressed mostly when the election results were out. I was expecting like many others that Congress will come into power, but it didn't . With that, came one bad after other, whether it was on politics (Jammu and Kashmir, Assam) both of which from my POV are inhumane not just (...)

  • Dima Kogan: Are planes crashing any less than they used to?
    Recently, I've been spending more of my hiking time looking for old plane crashes in the mountains. And I've been looking for data that helps me do that, for instance the last post. A question that came up in conversation is: "are crashes getting more rare?" And since I now have several (...)
