This Election Is Hillaryous

Outside of the United States, we consume quite a lot of the news about the misery you seem to be suffering under. I don’t want to pretend I have all the right connotations in all the right places, but I have to admit I think we usually do consume these revelations with a thought about… Continue reading This Election Is Hillaryous

Heads-up on NSS 3.27, Guam

Many distributions, among which Fedora in 23 & 24, and Arch Linux, have recently shipped NSS 3.27, sometimes packaged as 3.27.0, or even 3.27.1. This release may just have triggered some confusion about disabling, enabling, and defaulting to or not, the NSS implementation of TLS version 1.3 (currently in draft). Fun! We’ve received reports from… Continue reading Heads-up on NSS 3.27, Guam

Service Window: git.kolab.org migration

It’s been a while since we last updated Phabricator, and it’s been a while since the overall system that runs git.kolab.org was paid attention to. Suffice it to say that it’s time to upgrade the system. We’ve meanwhile packaged Phabricator and its dependencies, stripped off some superfluous external dependencies that it shipped, and fixed some… Continue reading Service Window: git.kolab.org migration

Apple on Guam: The Dots on The i

I’ve said before we had gotten reports from people that voluntarily participate in the Kolab Now Beta Programme, that the iPhone iOS and Mac OS X Mail.app were not really happy using IMAP over implicit SSL (you know, the one on port 993). Here’s a summary of the things that have happened thus far; Supply… Continue reading Apple on Guam: The Dots on The i
