New umockdev release which fixes device recording on recent kernels. There was an assumption in the code that device minor numbers are < 256 which isn't true any more at least with USB devices.

I released a new python-dbusmock 0.15.1 to fix a security issue. It should only have a rather academic exploit potential, but let's fix it nevertheless! Please look at https://launchpad.net/bugs/1453815 for details.

Thanks to +Simon McVittie for finding this!

ifupdown is a frequent pain point for cloud integration, due to its lack of apis and its idiosyncratic configuration format. Examine what it would take to replace ifupdown with systemd-networkd for clouds, servers, and ubuntu core by 16.04, since it's reported to be at feature parity for server use cases (i.e. vlans/bridges/bonding, but not vpns/wifi).
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Martin Pitt. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

I'm really happy to see the #debian 8.0 release, just as planned. Kudos and thanks to the Debian release team! (Having spent the last week on the Ubuntu release sprint I know how much behind-the-curtain work that is..)

I upgraded my server today, which went without a hitch for the most part. The new kernel and systemd boot fine (except that I'm now getting bug #782522, but that's mostly cosmetical and looks simple to fix for Debian 8.1). I spent by far the most time on updating Apache's configs to the stricter ACL defaults and slightly changed configuration layouts, and figuring out why postfix stopped accepting SSL cert based relaying (due to splitting out of smtpd_relay_restrictions). So all in all, a rather good experience, and after 1.5 hours the major stuff was working again. \o/

Another day, another lunchbreak, and already the 13th (and final) episode of House of Cards, 3rd season.  Oh, the craving for next year... :-)

News from the autopkgtest front!
Almost every new autopkgtest release brings some small improvements, but 3.14 got some reboot related changes worth pointing out. First of all, I simplified and unified the implementation of rebooting across all runners that support it (ssh, lxc, and qemu). If you use a custom setup script for ...

I started looking again into systemd-ifying Ubuntu Touch, after the first wave of porting that happened last fall (but only with the emulator). I installed systemd-sysv on my Nexus 4 (running Ubuntu Touch devel-proposed), and after two fairly simple fixes I now have enough stuff running to get unity8, mobile 3G data, telephony, and adb/phablet-shell.

I don't see large blockers with running systemd on the old 3.4 kernel; we don't use firmware loading there, and even if we do need it for some reason it's easy to put that back into an udev rule and helper.

It mostly seems to be an issue of porting our forest of upstart jobs now, and figuring out how to drop the need for the upstart system bridges (+Dimitri John Ledkov already started working on that last cycle).

I'm collecting bugs and patches/merge proposals in bugs tagged systemd-boot-touch. Any help appreciated, of course!

+Tim JP , I didn't try that yet. Kernel 3.7 (or 3.8?) did quite some cgroups/namespace reorganization, which nspawn might depend on. But LXC works fine (we depend on that for the Android container), so it's not a blocker for the migration.

I registered for #debconf15 -- at last, it's been a decade  since I went last time, waaay to long! I'm looking forward to seeing my fellow DDs again, doing some systemd, PostgreSQL, and autopkgtest/debci hacking.

See you in Heidelberg!
