This week in brief

Sunday, 16 January 2011

This week in brief:

I've rejoined the Debian Security Team

My first (recent) DSA was released earlier today, with assistance from various team members. (My memory of the process was poor, and some things have changed in my absence.)

BlogSpam gains a new user

The BlogSpam API is now available for users of Trac.

Finally, before I go, I've noticed several people on Planet Debian report their photo-challenges; either a picture a day or one a week. I too take pictures, and I'm happy if I get one session a month.

I suspect some of my content might be a bit too racy for publication here. If you're not avoiding friendface-style sites you can follow "highlights" easily enough - or just look at the site.

I'm now deploying IPv6

Friday, 7 January 2011

I've now gotten around to deploying IPv6 for my personal site(s) and machines. So potentially people visiting this blog are using IPv6 right now!

The Debian Administration website has been IPv6-connected and aware for a year or two now, although over 98% of users continue to connect via by IPv4.

Handling IPv6 & KVM wasn't too difficult at least, although I've done the simplest possible thing I could do, route a /64 to each guest and don't worry too much about it.

(The host machine has a /64 allocation of its own, and we've been granted an /48 allocation so we're not liable to run out. Ever.)
