Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Joking aside, is live-build being developed ATM, and, if so, does it look like that will continue for a while?

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Yes, updates are going in regularly - the latest was in September: https://metadata.ftp-master.debian.org/ … _changelog
I don't have inside knowlege of Debian politics, but it looks as if live-build is going to be around for some time. A lot of people are still using it.

(Have to shut down now, so sorry can't continue this discussion till Friday.)

Anyone using the nginx server?

Three vulnerabilities were discovered in Nginx...
For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 1.10.3-1+deb9u2.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Voting is open for the Debian Buster artwork till Jan. 6th 2019.

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianDesktop/A … ter#Voting

The result won't affect BL Lithium directly, but our Art Department might take hints.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

The submissions are really weak this time around. I think Moonlight is my favorite, and I think I would change it immediately, same as I did with Spacefun. A couple of other interesting submissions there, and I think I'd feel the same about them after installing.

Curious to see what the devs will do. Pull in a "ringer"?

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^ +1 for Moonlight - it could also provide a good basis for Lithium mods.  I also like the gradient idea on the komodo theme, with the squiggly motif.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Lost Dog is even more SpaceFun-ish, but I like it, Again, though, it would last through maybe one reboot.

Agreed on Komodo, I see potential there.

I'd vote for Dog in Harmony if it didn't have the "dog" in it! tongue

I also like the concept of E-legance.

^ Kind of you, but OK for walls I think, not distro themeing. Also the Debian specifications are quite onerous!

Indeed. Note that none, I think, of the submissions have done all of the work required. Which is fair, to wait for the go-ahead from Debian.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

Agreed, none of them was particularly exciting.

FWIW I voted for E-legance because it was the simplest. I don't really want recognizable objects - dogs, moons etc - on my default wallpaper, just a bit of abstract eye-comfort (though OK Moonlight is acceptable).

I liked Komodo till I looked at it close up and saw the map. Something more abstract using a similar palette might be nice though.

Chose Droplets and SynchronizedMotions as follow-ups, but I far prefer the Helium Beam really.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

somebody posted their own art on fdn a while ago. i loved the stuff that they came up with from around here onwards, the abstracted swirl/D thing. this one was the best overall proposal in many people's opinions.

kcin did sumbit his stuff, but not the designs i liked :-(

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

GitHub now gives free users unlimited private repositories

The GitHub Blog wrote:

GitHub Free now includes unlimited private repositories. For the first time, developers can use GitHub for their private projects with up to three collaborators per repository for free. Many developers want to use private repos to apply for a job, work on a side project, or try something out in private before releasing it publicly. Starting today, those scenarios, and many more, are possible on GitHub at no cost. Public repositories are still free (of course—no changes there) and include unlimited collaborators.

https://blog.github.com/2019-01-07-new-year-new-github/

BL currently uses GitHub so I thought this was a relevant story.

Here is the freeze policy/timeline for buster...

https://release.debian.org/buster/freeze_policy.html

@The Team, note that the Transition Freeze begins in 4 days. We can begin development in earnest at that time, IMO.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

^For the last few days I've been migrating packages to Lithium and putting them in our experimental repo:

deb https://kelaino.bunsenlabs.org/~johnraff/debian lithium main

(Also "lithium" branches on GitHub.)

They're not all done yet, and of course this is only getting packages - more-or-less Helium copies - that sort-of work on Buster. The work of making the proper Lithium desktop will start from there.

This is encouraging:

Starting 2019-01-12, new transitions and large/disruptive changes are no longer acceptable for buster.

So the rug won't be pulled out from under us.

Re: News that might affect BunsenLabs

@johnraff, there was a big cpp-8/gcc-8 update that took 2 days to go through, it upgraded for me successfully today. Inkscape updated today, neofetch updated today... Plasma version is at 5.14.3. I wouldn't be surprised if there were still a lot of upgrades coming in this weekend, but I think the gcc-8 one will be the last big system upgrade.

Thanks for the repo uploads! I'm jazzed, man, looking forward to a new install next week!

I don't like gcc upgrades.. I still have a system running Hydrogen.. because some custom compile at runtime stuff doesn't like gcc in stretch

It looks as if there's a chance Buster's installer will support secure boot, for amd64 anyway:

Yes in stretch-backports there are now both signed and unsigned 4.19 kernels.
