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

Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Way Ahead of Schedule

I reported before that I was a little ahead of schedule in making Kolab 16.1 available for Debian Jessie, and as it turns out I was wrong — I’m way ahead. In fact, installing and configuring Kolab 16.1 on Jessie passes without any major head-aches. I think the one little tidbit I have left relates… Continue reading Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Way Ahead of Schedule

Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Ahead of Schedule

I told you earlier this week I would be working on providing Debian packages for Kolab 16 next week, but an appointment I had this week was cancelled, and I get to get started just ever so slightly earlier than expected. This lengthens the window of time I have to deal with all the necessities,… Continue reading Kolab 16.1 for Jessie: Ahead of Schedule

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

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
