Shortly past Valentine's day, udisks and storage finally went back together! ♥

This finally ends a long-standing forking and packaging confusion.

My #FOSDEM talk video about Ubuntu's distro CI is now available. I explain the motivation, technology, impact and the do-s and don't-s that we've learned over the years.

Many thanks to the FOSDEM organizers, it's been a great weekend again!

It's done, no more blog vulnerabilities!

Always install the latest version, they say. Use very long autogenerated passwords, they say. And yet my wordpress blog got hacked this morning. I purged/restored the complete database, changed the db user passwords and wordpress password, but there was no real hint in the logs what acually happend and thus how to defend against it in the future. I guess 2FA wouldn't be the worst thing to enable for wordpress?

Played 2 hours of basketball for the first time since mid-December (I was away the last few Wednesday evenings). I'm so dead. Feels so good!

I went to the Red Hat New Hire Orientation for the past two days. Now I'm properly taught, branded, and of course hatted!

And yes, there actually is a Lego office in the same building 😁

One of the bigger things I'm missing after moving my laptop from Ubuntu to Fedora 25 is lxd. There surely are some third-party RPMs around, but my main use case for it is "give me a playground for testing a new systemd, networkd, cockpit, etc., really cheap".

I wrote a tiny script that initializes a mock chroot (if it doesn't already exist), does some minimal setup, and boots it in nspawn, with r/o-sharing my $HOME and r/w-sharing /tmp for convenience -- that seems to do well enough for now. mock already has both common rpms and the root fs cached anyway, so the setup only takes a few seconds.

(For the Debianists: mock is roughly the Fedora equivalent of schroot; even though schroot is available, and I continue to use it for Debian/Ubuntu work, mock seems to be the more popular choice.)

What do other people use for this?
