  • Mesa Is Up To About 8,000 Commits This Year, 2.2 Million Lines

    Now being into Q4, I've been meaning to run some fresh Mesa Git development statistics to see how this year is pacing for this important piece of the open-source graphics ecosystem and Linux desktop.

    As of this morning, Mesa's Git tree is made up of 5,633 files representing a total of 2,243,544 lines. This came about over 96,443 commits from more than 800 different authors. Mesa is still seeing on average about 13 commits per day.

    There is just one week to go until the Ubuntu 17.10 "Artful Aardvark" release but it looks like the Mir 1.0 release will still happen in time.

    It's been the goal of the remaining Mir developers to release version 1.0 during the Artful cycle. As of a few weeks back they were still aiming for that goal and to pursue a feature freeze exception. As of yesterday, all blocker bugs have been cleared for releasing Mir 1.0.

Security: Updates, Synopsys/Black Duck FUD, and Software Security Over Convenience

  • Security updates for Tuesday
  • With Much of the Data Center Stack Open Source, Security is a Special Challenge [Ed: Black attacking FOSS again in order to sell its proprietary products; does proprietary software have no security issues? Which cannot be fixed, either?]
  • Synopsys reveals its open-source rookies of the year [Ed: Anti-FOSS company Black Duck, which markets its proprietary software by attacking FOSS (it admitted being anti-GPL since inception, created by Microsoft employee), wants the public to think of it as a FOSS authority]
  • Software security over convenience
    Recently I got inspired (paranoid ?) by my boss who cares a lot about software security. Previously, I had almost the same password on all the websites I used, I had them synced to google servers (Chrome user previously), but once I started taking software security seriously, I knew the biggest mistake I was making was to have a single password everywhere, so I went one step forward and set randomly generated passwords on all online accounts and stored them in a keystore.
