Drip drip drip drip drink a little drip drip drip drip

It is interesting that there have been posts about archive tools appearing upon the Planet Debian.

Recently I setup an instance of rebuildd which worked nicely once I'd installed the required dependencies manually.

I also run three instances of reprepro, but there life is not such a happy picture.

I might be using reprepro incorrectly, but despite fighting with it for some time I cannot coerce the software into allowing me to upload the same version of a binary package for amd64 & i386 architectures - something I frequently want to do.

On the face of it importing packages into a small database doesn't seem terribly difficult, but it is a problem I've not spent much time looking at yet.

Now the severe beating of a high-school science teacher

Saturday, 22 September 2007

The following companies, or people, are using xen-shell with their Xen hosting product(s):

I'm sure there are more, but I've been lax at keeping track. I do want a list, if only for advertising purposes. I'll update the list here if/when people point out omissions.

In other news yesterday I managed to release security updates for KDM & fetchmail which were missing i386 builds. Not good.

The problem was fixed fairly quickly once it was actually noticed, with the help of Noah. But I did get several angry emails during the wait. *sigh*

It looks like people are starting the notice the downside to having broken security buildd machines which frequently cause these kind of problems for us - so hopefully these kind of errors will diminish in time. (Who am I kidding?)
