Debconf 10 - arrival and first days

I had planned long for this Debconf and with the experience from the previous times I did all I could to reach one goal - minimise stress. I think I got it right this time.

Going to Debconf10!

After a few months, today I finally got the approval and

Latvijas pavasara Ubuntu Bug Jam un Installest - 27.03.2010

The following is an invitation to the Latvian Ubuntu Bug Jam (in Latvian) sent for a bit of a wider circulation to catch people that monitor Planet Debian, but not Planet Ubuntu.lv.

Linuksys WRT54GL

Daniel, I also recently installed a WRT on the Linksys WRT54GL. But I used DD-WRT instructions - went to http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database, entered my model number and got direct download links to the firmware along with a README.

USB 3D Sound

Want a sound card? Want a cleared sound that is not contaminated by electromagnetic interference in you computer's case? Want that all to work in Linux?

Gnome typing break has no way to lock the screen

Want a definition of a paper cut bug? Here it is. And here and here are two more side effects of the same bug. The original bug report will be 6 years old in a month. Can we do something to prevent this bug surviving that long?

Debconf9 photos and banter

A bit more than a week after Debconf9 ended here is a post summarising what I remember about it - for myself to look back to later, for others that were there for a good memory, for those that were not there for insight and for organisers of future Debconfs to improve.

And then there was Debconf9

First I will point to resources that will receive more updates than this blog:


  • My Twitter feed - if I have a bit of info to get out, I'm more likely to tweet it out there, rather than writing a blog post about it.

  • #debconf9 Twitter feed - me (and other people) posting Debconf9 related info on Twitter are likely to use this hashtag to tag the information ( Identi.ca tag feed is also useful).

  • My photos on Flickr - I will be uploading photos and adding them to this set as the event progresses. A few are up already ;)

Re: HOWTO prep for migration off of SHA-1 in OpenPGP

Daniel says that we should move away from SHA1 by switching hash algorithms for signatures and generating keys that use at least SHA256 from SHA-2 family. I have been bitten by non-default GPG options before. So I propose that we do a security release of GPG that changes the defaults of key generation and key signing in such ways that SHA-1 algorithms are not used by default for any operation, unless a backwards compatibility option is used.

Voting on emails?

What does it sound like when a commission is reinventing a wheel? Much like this. Guys, the technology you are looking for is called (*gasp*) a forum, with moderators and poster carma and such ...
