For the last few years, I’ve been a mostly happy customer of Sivit (now bought by Nerim). But recently, technical problems have become more frequent, and today, for the first time, a crash made me lose some data which was rather painful to restore from backups.

Thanks to the work of Julien Viard de Galbert, UDD Bugs Search just gained the ability to help the triaging of X Strike Force bugs. He worked on the patch by installing his own copy of bugs.cgi on alioth. Don’t hesitate to do the same with your team!

After a few hours of hacking, I came up with Debian Bugs Search. This Ultimate Debian Database tool enables to query different kinds of Debian bugs (especially RC bugs using a multi-criteria search. It is aimed at being a replacement for the unofficial RC Bugs tracker, which has some bugs and fails to display the […]
A lot is being said on how Ruby is packaged in Debian and Ubuntu. In this post, I’m trying to go through the most common myths and give my position as a Debian Ruby maintainer. Note that those are my views, not necessarily those of the other Debian Ruby maintainers. Myth: Ruby is completely outdated […]
