I am looking forward to Last Week Tonight every week - it's a really great show (even if you're not an American).
The one from yesterday with focus on government surveillance was awesome (with the highlight clearly being the interview at the end ^^).

That black bar looks suspicious, and the K-Menu is busted - but apart from that, the Tanglu Plasma 5 transition is in a good shape so far, also thanks to the great work done by the Kubuntu & Debian KDE packaging teams.

Still has some bugs, but we are confident to iron those out before the release.

It's working now, with our current selection of packages :-)
(but I unfortunately can't say what triggered it - I suspect a Plasma update)

"When we started the Google Code project hosting service in 2006, the world of project hosting was limited"
-- well, yes - and with all these services closing now, it will be limited again to GitHub, GitLab and Bitbucket (maybe Launchpad as well)

Codeplex, SourceForge, Assembla, Gna! and much more. I think the situation is better than in 2006 but still bad news.

Finally I jumped over my shadow and over-pedanticness and submitted the AppStream/DEP-11 patch to Debian's dak.
I hope all remaining quirks can be worked out when the code gets more public testing, aside from +Tanglu.

I just found out why I didn't get PackageKit release announcements for a while - it's not that Richard doesn't send them, it's simply Google sorting them out as spam... For some reason, the false-positive rate of the GMail spamfilter increased a lot in the past months.

Sadly +Google's spam filter is as much user-generated as it is algorithm generated. All it would take is one or two other users getting #PackageKit  through Gmail hitting the Spam button for you to get the filter as well.

Limba-distributed Neverball - tested on Tanglu, Ubuntu and Fedora.
Creating the package was really nice, although with a larger pool of available dependencies it would be more fun.

How to test:
0) Ensure you are running on x86_64 - I haven't built Neverball for x86 (yet)
1) Get Limba from [1], compile and install it (the Git master version has some quirk fixes, so it's recommended to use it).
2) Open /etc/limba/sources.list (create file and directory if necessary) and add a line containing "http://people.freedesktop.org/~mak/stuff/neverball-lirepo/" (without quotes)
3) Run sudo lipa trust-key BF4DECEB to trust the repository you just added.
4) Run sudo lipa install neverball-1.6.0
5) Run Neverball from your desktop's launcher, or by typing neverball-1.6.0 in the console.

Note: Every #Limba command has a --verbose flag, if you want to see what's going on.
Note2: The application will not run in a sandbox yet.
----
The whole packaging for all submodules can be found at: https://github.com/ximion/limba-neverball/

So far, I only found cosmetical bugs (e.g. no icon present for neverball in the launcher) - the thing is working quite well :-) (With the small exception that I am really not very good at this game ^^)

+Tim JP There are some ideas to develop a decentralized network of repositories which mirror themselves. But that's way too ambitious, I learned that starting with simple (but working) software and later expand it if there is a need for it is the better approach.

The main reason why I dislike PPAs is that they potentially break system upgrades, are very insecure (you are giving someone else root access to your computer) and a few other reasons. They also are Ubuntu-only, obviously :P
RE dev skills: It's never to late to learn C/GLib or Python/Flask ;-)

Limba is now running Supertux2 as fully packaged application.
Creating the package was quite annoying, since packaging reverse dependencies is really boring.
So next I am looking into automatizing this process. The process yielded a few bugfixes for Limba, and me exploring some POSIX madness... - so, all in all, a useful exercise.
Neverball is next - I expect that one to be quite smooth, since it has much fewer stuff it depends on.

Really awesome new stuff!
 
Introducing fwupd, which is very interesting for Fedora, and might be interesting for the tablet and phone folk...
A few weeks ago Christian asked me to help with the firmware update task that a couple of people at Red Hat have been working on for the last few months. Peter has got fwupdate to the point where we can “upload” sample .cap files onto the flash chips, but this isn't particularly safe, ...
