Dowse 0.5

Wednesday 4th of June 2014 09:39:42 AM
Dowse eases the configuration of network routing for a local area network, starting from the setup of ARP-level static entries of known peers, IP-level firewall, DHCP configuration, and local DNS cache, up to an application layer transparent proxy and optional gateways to anonymous networks such as Tor and I2P. It consists of a minimalistic script which can run on any GNU/Linux box and which, from a central configuration point, controls Ebtables, Iptables, and all the daemons needed for such operations: DnsMasq, Squid2, and Privoxy. It comes with a module system for contributed add-ons like DNSCrypt-proxy and HTTPS-everywhere.

Release Notes: Starting and stopping Dowse now works faster. New and safer iptables rules have been adopted and the code has been reorganized. The Squid/Privoxy functionality was moved into a module, preserving only firewalling and dnsmasq as the core functionalities of Dowse. A comprehensive whitepaper is distributed with the source, outlining future plans.

doclifter 2.15

Tuesday 3rd of June 2014 09:56:51 PM
doclifter helps with lifting documents with nroff markup to XML-DocBook. Lifting documents from presentation level to semantic level is hard, and a really good job requires human polishing. This tool aims to do everything that can be mechanized, and to preserve any troff-level information that might have structural implications in XML comments. TBL tables are translated into DocBook table markup, PIC into SVG, and EQN into MathML (relying on pic2svg and GNU eqn for the last two).

Release Notes: Minor improvements for strange edge cases, a work around bugginess of --postvalid in recent xmllint versions, and a cleanup for new version of pylint.

Uselessd: A Stripped Down Version Of Systemd

The boycotting of systemd has led to the creation of uselessd, a new init daemon based off systemd that tries to strip out the "unnecessary" features. Uselessd in its early stages of development is systemd reduced to being a basic init daemon process with "the superfluous stuff cut out". Among the items removed are removing of journald, libudev, udevd, and superfluous unit types. Read more

Open source is not dead

I don’t think you can compare Red Hat to other Linux distributions because we are not a distribution company. We have a business model on Enterprise Linux. But I would compare the other distributions to Fedora because it’s a community-driven distribution. The commercially-driven distribution for Red Hat which is Enterprise Linux has paid staff behind it and unlike Microsoft we have a Security Response Team. So for example, even if we have the smallest security issue, we have a guaranteed resolution pattern which nobody else can give because everybody has volunteers, which is fine. I am not saying that the volunteers are not good people, they are often the best people in the industry but they have no hard commitments to fixing certain things within certain timeframes. They will fix it when they can. Most of those people are committed and will immediately get onto it. But as a company that uses open source you have no guarantee about the resolution time. So in terms of this, it is much better using Red Hat in that sense. It’s really what our business model is designed around; to give securities and certainties to the customers who want to use open source. Read more

10 Reasons to use open source software defined networking

Software-defined networking (SDN) is emerging as one of the fastest growing segments of open source software (OSS), which in itself is now firmly entrenched in the enterprise IT world.

Only FOSSers ‘Get’ FOSS

Back on the first of September I wrote an article about Android, in which I pointed out that Google’s mobile operating system seems to be primarily designed to help sell things. This eventually led to a discussion thread on a subreddit devoted to Android. Needless to say, the fanbois and fangrrls over on Reddit didn’t cotton to my criticism and they devoted a lot of space complaining about how the article was poorly written. Read more
