Many open-source software developers use GitHub. Our goal was to make it as easy as possible for them to build and release their code automatically, as a snap software package for Ubuntu and other Linux systems. The result is now available to the world at http://bit.ly/2tuR226. Here's how we did it!

Bet you don't see that all the time:

$ uptime
00:19:13 up 115 days, 5:17, 2 users, load average: 463.70, 462.85, 460.81

463 … and rising and I can't reboot (yet). :-(
Apparently our Docker version causes intermittent non-interruptible IO deadlocks and every process (including our monitoring) that tries to read from /proc/12200/cmdline knocks itself out… forever. And to make things worse: D-state processes are absolutely immortal and can't be killed.

The machine has 29GB of memory left, hope that'll be enough until it can be rebooted. Meanwhile the non-critical rest of the cluster is getting a new Docker version via rolling reboots. Things you want to do Friday evening…

Scaling Git is an interesting project to take on. I'm a little surprised that it's Microsoft who did it, especially since Git for Windows has always been a rather ugly duckling compared to other platforms. But hey, why not?

Now the interesting question is: when will GVFS come for non-Windows platforms? According to GitHub issue #4 https://github.com/Microsoft/GVFS/issues/4 a port is at least planned, although FUSE-like implementations bear some major performance hits compared to the Windows implementation. Obstacles that, I'm sure, can be overcome (btw an interesting discussion there for those of you who want a few insights into FUSE and its equivalent on Windows).
