Today I found some time to edit my (rather rough) photos of the recent #solareclipse which we saw in Inari, Finnland. High up in the north we had over 90% coverage.

The other photos still need some time for post-processing  (mostly the Northern Lights ones).

Yesterday we had the third Northern Lights night in a row, there's a lot of solar wind activity these days!

The bright star is Venus, BTW.

OK, in Germany about 80% - we had steel clear sky so it was impressive.

I moved project hosting of python-dbusmock to github now, as gitorious is shutting down. As a side effect I get much nicer merge proposals and an issue tracker now :-)

+Zygmunt Krynicki , I'm using LP for bugs, download tarballs, and I even have a bzr import and a daily recipe. Looking forward to when LP gets git branch hosting support :-)

 #VM
 
I spend a good chunk of my day in QEMU VMs, for both QA/CI and systemd related work. I always want to use KVM, virtio, and ssh port redirection and I got tired of the typing/history editing, so I wrote a stupid little typing saver script.

With that you can now do "vm path/to/image.img" to start a VM, or append arbitrary QEMU options. E. g. my standard "I need a throwaway VM for playing around" command is "vm /srv/vm/adt-vivid-amd64-cloud.img -snapshot" (that's the image spat out by adt-buildvm-ubuntu-cloud which we use for package testing in autopkgtest).

Bah, I can't write the word "system" any more without appending a "d". autofinger syndrome...

Only if you replace the first e by è... And you gain utf8 compile-time checking for free :-)

autopkgtest 3.10 landed in Debian sid and Ubuntu vivid today. As by-product from the recent systemd debugging, reboot tests in QEMU are now rock solid (systemd has a new test which reboots the VM 20 times in a row, which previously failed quite often on loaded machines like in CI).

The LXC runner also learned the "reboot" capability, at least if you don't use -e/--ephemeral (lxc-start-ephemeral does not support rebooting, as far as I can see).

+Nils-Werner Claesson yes, these are sun observation glasses. We saw the eclipse nicely here.

Yay, I got NFS to work under systemd in vivid. That's the last blocker for flipping the default init!

I'll send them to Debian, but in Debian NFS is not known-broken; it just uses a monolithic init.d script. That's different in Ubuntu where we only had some upstart jobs.

I released a new python-dbusmock 0.13, with a new urfkill template, thanks to +Jussi Pakkanen ! Uploaded to Debian experimental, will sync into Ubuntu vivid in a few hours.

Shame urfkill's API is so bad :(
