  • Tor-enabled Debian mirror

    During Jacob Applebaum's talk at DebConf15, he noted that Debian should TLS-enable all services, especially the mirrors.

    His reasoning was that when a high-value target downloads a security update for package foo, an adversary knows that they are still using a vulnerable version of foo and try to attack before the security update has been installed.

  • Updates to the sources.debian.net editor

    Debconf is a great opportunity to meet people in real life, to express and share ideas in a different way, and to work on all sort of stuff.

  • Debian/TeX Live complete update
  • Thanks Debian

    Regardless, my contributions to Debian were never noteworthy so it’s also not that big of a deal. I just need to close cycles myself and move forward, and the ten year anniversary looked like a significant mark for that.

  • Finally, systemd!

    Even though Debian has moved to systemd as default a long while ago now, I've stayed with sysv as I have somewhat custom setups (self-built trimmed down kernels, separate /usr not pre-mounted by initrd, etc.).

  • remove systemd for the love of Yog-Sothoth already
