Syncing and publishing SUSE repositories with Pulp

Filed under
Software

I was recently looking into Pulp’s ability to sync and publish SUSE repositories, including those from openSUSE, SLES 11, and (after a little bit of work) SLES 12.

If you’re interested, I put together a quick demo of the features and their usage with Pulp. Enjoy!

  • git-pbuilder 1.39
  • Term::ANSIColor 4.04

    The recent work I've been doing on podlators taught me that the build system of my other core module, Term::ANSIColor, was also doing the wrong thing when installed on Perl versions older than 5.11, even though no one had reported it. While I was there, I also switched back to ExtUtils::MakeMaker for the build system so that I'm testing the same build system that's also used for Perl core.

  • podlators 4.03

    There was a bug in the test suite of the last few versions of podlators that caused the test for devising dates to fail if POD_MAN_DATE or SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH were already set. Since I needed to fix that anyway, I decided to poke at the test suite some more, and made some good progress towards refactoring it, breaking out common code, and making it easier to add new tests. It's still in the stage where I've added more code than I've removed, but a lot of that is comments and the new code is much better.

  • Kodi 16.0 Beta 3 Release Brings More Fixes

    Kodi continues to subscribe to the "release early, release often" philosophy with today announcing the latest test release for Kodi 16.

    Kodi 16 is bringing DirectX 11 support on Windows, better Android rendering support, long-press support, music scanning library improvements, and much more.

  • FileZilla A Free FTP Client To Upload Files To Server Database

    Whether you are hosting WordPress on your own server or uploading files to your server database such as plugins, themes etc. You are going to need an FTP client. FileZilla is the most popular, open-source and free FTP client. It’s very easy to use and cross-platform. So you can use it on Windows, Linux and Mac.

  • git-pbuilder 1.38

    A minor update to the builder glue script for git-buildpackage. This release just has documentation fixes. I had missed that you no longer need explicit gbp.conf configuration because git-buildpackage now has a --git-pbuilder flag, and, when using that, there are a variety of other command-line flags to use instead of environment variables.

PHP 7.0 arrives, so go forth and upgrade if you dare

Filed under
Software

PHP 7.0 was launched today, so we've asked @sydphp organiser and #phunconf convener Jack Skinner to explain its significance. Over to you, Jack ...

PHP is the language we love to hate and often hate to love. After celebrating it’s 20th birthday earlier this year, it's clearly here to stay, not least because version 7 arrived today.

Debian, Devuan, and Ubuntu

  • My Free Software Activities in April 2016
    I handled a new LTS sponsor that wanted to see wheezy keep supporting armel and armhf. This was not part of our initial plans (set during last Debconf) and I thus mailed all teams that were impacted if we were to collectively decide that it was OK to support those architectures. While I was hoping to get a clear answer rather quickly, it turns out that we never managed to get an answer to the question from all parties. Instead the discussion drifted on the more general topic of how we handle sponsorship/funding in the LTS project.
  • Initial Planning For Ubuntu 16.10 Today At UOS
    Beyond the announcement that Ubuntu 16.10 won't ship with Mir and Unity 8 by default, many other items were discussed for the Ubuntu 16.10 release due out in October.
  • Ubuntu 16.10 Isn't Going To Use Mir / Unity 8 By Default
    Well, another setback for Unity 8 and Mir. Kicking off the Ubuntu Online Summit for Ubuntu 16.10, it's been confirmed that the Unity 8 desktop and Mir display server will not be the default for the desktop spin. Similar to the current situation with existing Ubuntu releases, Unity 8 and Mir will be available as an opt-in feature for users wanting to upgrade their desktop, but Unity 7 and the faithful X.Org Server is planned to be the default for Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak.
  • Devuan Beta Release
    After two years in development, a beta release of the Devuan distro has made it into the world (Devuan is a registered trademark of the Dyne.org foundation). Devuan is a very Debian-ish distro. In fact, it basically is Debian, with one notable absence. Devuan doesn't use systemd. In fact, that's its main claim to fame. Devuan was created to offer an alternative to Debian fans who were alienated by the controversial switch to systemd.
