Debian port to RISC-V announced today. Can't do much with it yet, but it's neat to see progress!

Looking forward to the privileged spec settling down so we can start seeing upstream ports of glibc, kernel, etc.

Plumb it up!
The 2017 Linux Plumbers Conference organizing committee is pleased to
announce that the registration for this year’s conference is now open.
Information on how to register can be found here. Registration prices
and cutoff dates are published in the ATTEND page. A reminder that we
are following a quota system to release registration slots. Therefore
the early registration rate will remain in effect until early
registration closes on June 18 2017, or the quota limit (150) is
reached, whatever comes earlier.

Quite happy to not be on the Google Home or Echo bandwagon yet.

The general concept had been proven with the way Chrome OS added Android (Play store support), so I'm sure this is a project we will hear more from over time.
Interesting. Will keep an eye on this. "Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU/Linux system. Every Android application will behave integrated into your operating system like any other native application.

To achieve our goal we use standard Linux technologies like containers (LXC) to separate the Android operating system from the host. The Android version doesn't matter for this approach and we try to keep up with the latest available version from the Android Open Source project.
[...]
Installing Anbox on a regular Linux system isn't hard when you already have the ability to install snaps. Packaging anbox within a snap makes it really easy for us to put all necessary bits together and ship it to you!

If your system doesn't support snaps, then we currently don't have an easy way for you to install Anbox. This might change though in the near future.

Installing Anbox is pretty easy as we provide an installer which will install all necessary things on your system. Please be aware that the installer requires root privileges on your systems as it has to install things like additional kernel modules via DKMS."

GCC 7 will produce a patch that corrects your code if it doesn't compile.

Not just manufacturing jobs are disappearing due to automation. :-)

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. […] The FAKE NEWS site LWN.net said it wouldn't happen, but we knew better. […] With the below patch, the job-killing MAINTAINERS file is finally being ROLLED BACK. But that's only the beginning. For too long, the maintainers have accepted patches from anybody. Criminals, drug lords, gang members, RUBYISTS. These people are ruining the moral fabric of Linux. It's time to do something about it. […]"
