Movim migrates its official server to ejabberd

Movim is a distributed social networking platform founded in 2010. It can be accessed using existing XMPP clients and Jabber accounts, and is a free and open source software licensed under the AGPL.

With version 0.12 released in October, Movim migrated its official server to ejabberd. Before, they were using Metronome, a Prosody fork. Today, we are chatting with Timothée Jaussoin, the founder of Movim, about this very complex migration.
...
We now have a proper packaging for our Linux distribution – Debian, which certainly makes it easier to maintain. There’s also an improved scalability and more stable CPU and memory consumption, which helps to predict hardware requirements.
...
Even if I see ejabberd more as a tool that needs integration and tuning to create a proper platform, ejabberd seems to be the more serious solution to build proper messaging systems using the XMPP protocol.

Announcing sources.debian.org



Debian developer Matthieu Caneill announced today the new URL for Debsources. For those who do not know it: With Debsources you can search in the complete source code of Debian. This is very nice, when you like to learn, how your operating system or applications work, if you like to learn a new computing language, if you like to find an attack vector for your latest hack or you like to prevent the latter. It is like the late Google codesearch, but free as in freedom. Try out and have fun!
Dear developers,

We're happy to announce that Debsources, the Web application that
allows to browse and search the entire source code of all Debian
releases, is now hosted on the official Debian infrastructure and
available at https://sources.debian.org.

You may already know this service as previously hosted at
sources.debian.net . We took the move to Debian hardware as the
opportunity to officially announce it here.

Service description



Debsources is a web service that exposes the content of Debian source
packages on the Web, both via an HTML user interface and a JSON API
[0]. To that end, an updater runs regularly (currently 4 times a day)
to unpack and index new packages from all the available Debian
suites. It also runs various plugins, for example to count lines of
code and measure the size of packages; this information is exposed in
the interface.

[0]: https://sources.debian.org/doc/api/

Since all extracted information is stored in a PostgreSQL database,
various data warehouse features are available, such as the list of
file duplicates for every file, or package name search.

More than source code



Worth noting are two "sub-apps" that run on the same infrastructure:

* patches [1]: for packages using 3.0 (quilt) package format, the list
of patches is extracted and exposed, along with some metadata.

* copyright [2]: the copyright files of packages are exposed through
this interface, and displayed in a convenient way if they are
machine readable.

[1]: https://sources.debian.org/patches/
[2]: https://sources.debian.org/copyright/

Learn more



Debsources has been described extensively and used to conduct various
studies on the Debian source code. To learn more check out the paper:

Matthieu Caneill, Daniel M. Germán, Stefano Zacchiroli. The Debsources
Dataset: Two Decades of Free and Open Source Software. In Empirical
Software Engineering, Volume 22, pp. 1405-1437, June, 2017

An open access preprint of the paper and additional information about
Debsources are available on the Debsources documentation page [3].

Credits



Many credits go to everyone who submitted patches and feedback over
the years, thank you! In particular, Stefano Zacchiroli started the
project and wrote the updater infrastructure, and Orestis Ioannou
developed the patches/ and copyright/ apps.

This new instance of the service is hosted by DSA - without whom
sources.debian.org would not exist. Many thanks to the whole team for
their guidance in the d.n -> d.o migration, and in particular to
Julien Cristau and Peter Palfrader.

The previous instance of Debsources had been hosted by IRILL [4]for
more than 4 years, who has also spearheaded the initial development of
the service - thanks for the non-interrupted service!

As always, we're more than happy to hear your feedback; you can
contact us at qa-debsources@lists.alioth.debian.org . (See the footer
of the Debsources web page for bug report and contribution
information.)

For the Debsources team,

~~There is NO CLOUD, just other people’s computers~~



There’s cloud, and it can even be YOURS on YOUR computer



blog post by Debian developer Thomas Goirand "Zigo"
Each time I see the FSFE picture, just like on Daniel’s last post to planet.d.o, where it says:

“There is NO CLOUD, just other people’s computers”

it makes me so frustrated. There’s such a thing as private cloud, setup on your own set of servers. I’ve been working on delivering OpenStack to Debian for the last 6 years and a half, motivated exactly to fix this issue: I refuse that the only cloud people could use would be a closed source solution like GCE, AWS or Azure. The FSFE (and the FSF) completely dismissing this work is more than annoying: it is counter productive. Not only the FSFE shouldn’t pull anyone away from the cloud, but it should push for the public to choose cloud providers using free software like OpenStack.

The openstack.org market place lists 23 public cloud providers using OpenStack, so there is now no excuse to use any other type of cloud: for sure, there’s one where you need it. If you use a free software solution like OpenStack, then the question if you’re running on your own hardware, on some rented hardware (on which you deployed OpenStack yourself), or on someone else’s OpenStack deployment is just a practical one, on which you can always back-up quickly. That’s one of the very reason why one should deploy on the cloud: so that it’s possible to redeploy quickly on another cloud provider, or even on your own private cloud. This gives you more freedom than you ever had, because it makes you not dependent anymore on the hosting company you’ve selected: switching provider is just the mater of launching a script. The reality is that neither the FSFE or RMS understand all of this. Please don’t dive into the FSFE very wrong message.

Install Dino on Debian-based Systems



If you run Debian testing or unstable, you may install dino-im directly from Debian experimental. Easy.

If you run Debian stable, or Ubuntu, or Mint etc. there are some more steps involved. Make sure, your system has GTK3 version 3.22 at least. This is required by Dino. E.g. for Ubuntu this means 17.04 or newer. Also, you may need to install some development tools and libraries. During the build, you'll see which one are missing on your system. I did not try this myself, this is just what I hope should work - quick and dirty:Good luck!

Dino in Debian experimental



What is Dino?



Dino is a modern IM client using XMPP (Jabber) with support for both OpenPGP and OMEMO. It looks very nice and can already be used for chatting and group conversations. It is, however, not yet stable nor feature-complete. If you are looking for something like Conversations (Android XMPP client), but for the desktop, Dino is for you. If you like to have something more stable and feature-complete, try Gajim instead. I use both! :~)





Dino is written in C and Vala, uses the GTK+ UI toolkit and looks best in Gnome, XFCE, or other GTK+ based desktops. I heard about planned versions for Windows and MacOS, too, but don't hold your breath.

How to install Dino on Debian?



Since yesterday, the Dino IM client is available in the official Debian repositories, but so far only in the "experimental" distribution. To install it, Debian users have to:
$ echo deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/experimental.list
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt -t experimental install dino-im


This should work on nine official and five unofficial architectures for at least unstable and testing. Not sure about stable. I'm pretty sure, that oldstable will not work.

Why the "-im" suffix for Dino in Debian?



There used to be another program, an "integrated MIDI piano roll editor and sequencer engine", by the same name in Debian. Many references to the old program still exist, so it would be problematic to recycle the name for a different purpose.

Happy chatting!

Prosody 0.10.0 now in Debian unstable



Users of Debian unstable can now apt install prosody prosody-modules to get the latest version. I run the packages (so far without issues) on a Debian stable system. The "clean" way would be to wait for a backport, but at the moment, it is not strictly necessary.

#debian #prosody #xmpp #federation
 

Like to experiment with Debian, Gajim, XMPP?



Bored? Like to play? OK, here's my offer: If you run Debian testing or unstable and you are using XMPP, why not install Gajim and some of its plugins from Debian experimental? It probably will not work as smooth as the packages from stable, testing, or unstable, but you can run the freshest stuff ever!

Just put experimental into your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main

and install from it:
$ sudo apt install -t experimental gajim gajim-antispam gajim-httpupload gajim-omemo

So far, stuff works for me, but beware: Experimental is called experimental for a reason.

Prosody 0.10.0 released



Congratulations to the developers!



Note to Debian users: You can try 0.10 now, but it is a two months old pre-release in experimental. You have to use also the prosody-modules from experimental, which are pretty recent. Works perfectly for me on a production server, but still... Expect the new release in unstable in some days.

Purism collects half the money for Librem 5!



Purism does better than I hoped! After a little bit more than half of the time (33 days passed, 27 still to go), they have half the money (51%) of the 1.5 million USD they need. I'm positively surprised!

Now the other half it is up to you! If you like to have a phone that respects your privacy (so does promise Purism), runs a mainstream Linux distro (PureOS/Debian by default, the most important point for me personally), and has strong focus on freedom and security, please consider supporting their crowd funding campaign!

As long as they do not reach their goal there is no risk. Your credit card will not be charged before they reach their target. If the reach the 1.5 million USD, they will charge you. Then there is the risk, that they will fail, of course. I think, that they will not fail, because they have some experience with building hardware and they have capable people on board. But, hey, no risk, no fun!

recipe to observe the cell phones around you



Debian developer Petter Reinholdtsen writes:
A little more than a month ago I wrote how to observe the SIM card ID (aka IMSI number) of mobile phones talking to nearby mobile phone base stations using Debian GNU/Linux and a cheap USB software defined radio, and thus being able to pinpoint the location of people and equipment (like cars and trains) with an accuracy of a few kilometer. Since then we have worked to make the procedure even simpler, and it is now possible to do this without any manual frequency tuning and without building your own packages.

The gr-gsm package is now included in Debian testing and unstable, and the IMSI-catcher code no longer require root access to fetch and decode the GSM data collected using gr-gsm.

Here is an updated recipe, using packages built by Debian and a git clone of two python scripts:

"How to Live Without Google" - and getting it all wrong



In a failed attempt to improve users personal privacy, DuckDuckGo jumps from the frying pan straight into the fire. With the motto
Remove Google from your life? Yes, it can be done!
they give ten advices, most of them very bad. Also, they are using inexact wording by calling things free, when they are "free as in beer", but not necessarily "free as in freedom". I comment on their three worst recommendations:
Google Search -> DuckDuckGo (free)
Let's start off with the easiest one! Switching to DuckDuckGo not only keeps your searches private but also gives you extra advantages such as our bang shortcuts, handy Instant Answers, and knowing you're not trapped in a filter bubble.
I understand, that they advertise their own service here. And while I do believe, that DuckDuckGo does not cheat and keeps your searches private, as a user, one cannot prove it. In any case, one just replaces one centralised search machine with another one. Better use a decentralised service, such as meta search engine Searx.
Android -> iOS (paid)
The most popular alternative to Android is of course iOS, which offers easy device encryption and encrypted messaging via iMessage by default. We also have tips to increase privacy protection on your iPhone or iPad.
This is certainly the worst recommendation in their list. I had to check the date of the article, when I read this. Aprils Fool's Day? I'm certainly not a fan of Android and I'm not an Android user anymore, but going for a much more restrictive jail is just stupid. Android has at least relatively free versions, e.g. Replicant. iOS, in contrast, is a carcel with beautifully painted walls. Very high walls with perfectly styled barbed wire on top. Even the most proprietary variants of Android let you at least install free software from F-Droid.org.

If you don't want to use Android anymore, like myself, better go for a free alternative, e.g. support the Librem 5 crowdfunding, or the Pyra handheld or the ZeroPhone, all three running the free Debian operating system.
Google Allo -> Signal (free)
There are several services offering private messaging but, as we've mentioned before, Signal gets our recommendation. It offers free, end-to-end encryption for both messages and private calls. It's also recommended by Edward Snowden and renowned security expert Bruce Schneier, among others.
Again, they recommend to leave one centralised service for another one. And one, that even wants your phone number, otherwise you can't use it. And one, that does not yet have a decent client for Linux. There are messengers around that are federated or completely decentralised, that do not force you give them your phone number, and that have native clients for all major operating systems. My recommendation is XMPP. If you are on Linux, use e.g. Gajim, on Android the best app is probably Conversations, for iOS there is ChatSecure and so on. Alternatives to XMPP are Ring, Matrix and more recently Wire.

Benjamin Franklin wrote in 1755:
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
One should also not give up libre software, which is essential in many ways, to purchase a little perceived safety or privacy through non-free or centralised services.

Google tracking is more pervasive than most people realize. We show you some alternatives to Google services to limit your exposure.

The Windows(TM)(c)(shit) stress ... a new psycological disease.

I feel seek...each time someone ask me for help to tune or install things on Windows, I feel bad...realy bad.
OK the only one person able to ask me for help on Windows is my father...
But...this evening...He asked me ton install a USB/wifi plug...

I was thinking "Ho no...not Wifi on Windows !"

Guess what ?

I came with my Debian Lapy, it was...well you know, 20 to 30 sec and it was connected.
The Android tablet...my parent's tablet...Linux then...ok, connected, same.

Windows and the USB/Wifi plug...not working after struggling 1 hour with this fucking and fucked system !
I said my parents "I want to live in a country where Windows is prohibited...it's not a system...it's a cash machine for it's owner but it's working only for him, as a system, it's not working. Look...that's a system...ok let's reboot both..."
I rebooted the Windows and My Debian...of course Debian...12sec for the login screen, somthing like this...Windows...2mins.
Ok I have a SSD in the lapy while the Windows PC has a classic HD, but the rest of the hardware is almost equal.

We sill go RJ45 wire cables to the optical fiber box...

Don't anymore let people think Windows is a system.

I decided I want to give #Wayland a shot. The problem is that it seems that Wayland only works on #GNOME3, and so far my experience with a #Debian #Stretch GNOME session on Wayland is: too many bugs.

The first: SSH_AUTH_SOCK gets set to /run/user/1000/keyring/ssh, but there's no such socket. My current workaround: generate / connect to an existing SSH agent. Yeah, this is what happens when you can't start them all from the same session. I used to use a variation of this for sharing a single ssh-agent instance for multiple logins to a remote server: This is to be sourced (.) from somewhere:

_fix_ssh_agent_info() {
local ssh_socket ssh_pid
local my_uid=$(id -u)
ssh_socket=$(find /tmp/ssh-*/agent.* -uid "$my_uid" | head -n1)
if [ "$ssh_socket" = '' ]; then
eval ssh-agentreturn
fi
ssh_pid=${ssh_socket##*.}

export SSH_AUTH_SOCK="$ssh_socket" SSH_AGENT_PID="$ssh_pid"
}

case "$SSH_AUTH_SOCK" in
/run/user/*/keyring/ssh) _fix_ssh_agent_info;;
esac

unset _fix_ssh_agent_info
 
The Windows(TM)(c)(shit) stress ... a new psycological disease.

I feel seek...each time someone ask me for help to tune or install things on Windows, I feel bad...realy bad.
OK the only one person able to ask me for help on Windows is my father...
But...this evening...He asked me ton install a USB/wifi plug...

I was thinking "Ho no...not Wifi on Windows !"

Guess what ?

I came with my Debian Lapy, it was...well you know, 20 to 30 sec and it was connected.
The Android tablet...my parent's tablet...Linux then...ok, connected, same.

Windows and the USB/Wifi plug...not working after struggling 1 hour with this fucking and fucked system !
I said my parents "I want to live in a country where Windows is prohibited...it's not a system...it's a cash machine for it's owner but it's working only for him, as a system, it's not working. Look...that's a system...ok let's reboot both..."
I rebooted the Windows and My Debian...of course Debian...12sec for the login screen, somthing like this...Windows...2mins.
Ok I have a SSD in the lapy while the Windows PC has a classic HD, but the rest of the hardware is almost equal.

We sill go RJ45 wire cables to the optical fiber box...

Don't anymore let people think Windows is a system.

Let's Encrypt is a new Certificate Authority (CA) that provides an easy way to obtain and install free TLS/SSL certificates, thereby enabling encrypted HTTPS on web servers. It simplifies the process by providing a software client, certbot (previously
 
Preseeding a debian installation from the standard installer is as easy as pressing ESC at the right time and pointing it to the url of your preseed file, right?

It is, except when you're using libreboot, and you never pass through that “right time”, because you are skipping the installer's grub.

So, for future reference, here is the right incantation to use at the command line that you get by pressing c at the libreboot menu:


linux (usb0)/install.amd/vmlinuz auto=true url=http://webserver/path/preseed.cfg
initrd (usb0)/install.amd/initrx
boot


simple, once you've found it...

(ok, it took me less than one hour, but I don't want it to take another hour the next time)
