Phabricator Packages for EPEL, Fedora

Using Pagure and COPR, Tim Flink and I have settled on using common infrastructure to further the inclusion of Phabricator in to the Fedora repositories (and EPEL). I’m hoping this will bear fruit and get more people on board. Our Pagure repository is at Phab Phour Phedora — a mix of Fabuluous Four, Phabricator for… Continue reading Phabricator Packages for EPEL, Fedora

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

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

Emergency Service Window for Kolab Now

We’re going to need to free up a hypervisor and put its load on other hypervisors, in order to pull out the one hypervisor and have some of its faulty hardware replaced — but there’s two problems; The hypervisor to free up has asserted required CPU capabilities most of the eligible targets do not have… Continue reading Emergency Service Window for Kolab Now

One of Them Tasters…

One of them taster workstations at our beer-and-food-and-freedom taster in Vienna is just simply going to be the greatest experience you’ll have ever had.
The reason is not the Fedora LiveCD I composed from a tweaked and tuned,  running workstation. The reason is not that we run these off of an up-to-date “Install to hard-drive”. The reason is I stole it, and are going to let my wife create that all-important feedback cycle over the weekend.

Grab your free tickets now, and we may have beers on Wednesday the 22nd of June, in beautiful Vienna/Wien, discussing precisely how awesome this is.

Oh SNAP, and there’s the Devil

I don’t know how else to put it. I’m sorry. It’s bad. It’s bad in my opinion, not fact. My opinion, is my expectation, will only turn fact by the time it is too late to do anything about it. It’s like, “why back-up anything?” — well, you’ll know when you’ve lost everything. In other… Continue reading Oh SNAP, and there’s the Devil

Phabricator RPMs for RHEL, Fedora

If you work with Phabricator, by engaging with Kolab (for example), you may be interested to know about our Infrastructure and Tools repositories. These contain Phabricator’s stable branches for Phabricator itself, arcanist and libphutil. The reason I mention this is because the client (your workstation) needs arcanist and libphutil to be as outdated or as… Continue reading Phabricator RPMs for RHEL, Fedora
