Ken's blog <http://www.restivo.org/blog/archives/80>, mentions the
Lucia IR used in jace's demo configuration. I'll have to temper
Ken's excitement a bit: it is not Santa Lucia Basilica in Siracusa,
but the one in Bologna, now the university's aula magna. See here:
Still a nice place to shake the plaster off the walls :-)
Follie! Follie! Delirio vano è questo !
Thank you Rui for your concern. I am fine. The last I heard there are 29
dead and 20+ wounded. Terrible stuff...

I concur. it's not cool!
We don't think it's a good idea to install linuxPPC just now; but the
underlying OS should be transparent to all LADs/LAUs anyway!

right, gnu/Linux audio - not gnu/Linux servers. - FWIW: we use GNU
software on this server. - but feel free to take this OT issue to the
consortium mailing list. I'm not going to waste time for matters we can
not change easily, now!

yes, it's kind of an ironic joke.
IIRC BSD gets more out of your _web server_ hardware *and* it features
JAILs, chroot-envs and security that gnu/Linux does not [yet]. - If
there is going to be a shell login server for LADs to upload web-content
etc. (alike shell.sf.net): it'd prefer a LINUX-compat freeBSD!
Nevertheless once we get them, at least our mail, log and file server(s)
are going to be pure gnu/Linux!

I've recv. > 5 independent remarks that linuxaudio.org should provide
services for developers - similar to sourceforge.net! (again no April
There are already some efforts (eg. download.linuxaudio.org) but none of
which is end-developer friendly :) - we figured that providing end-user
resources is easier to implement and linuxaudio.org lacks manpower.. -
but I dare say we'll get there at last.
unless *YOU* volunteer, we won't re-implement sf.net on linuxaudio.org -
but we will aim towards some devel-CMS!
Here are a few ideas:
* web-space (1)
* bug-tracking system (2)
* code repository (3)
- no [per-project] forum (6)
- no file-release repo (5)
- no [automatic] per-project mailing lists (4)
(1) we can use one of the currently avail. platforms
wiki (dokuwiki) or CMS (drupal)
AND/OR allow to rsync custom project-web-space (static html only).
- for custom solutions we don't see a problem to add vhosts&accounts
(plus database,cgi), but this won't be an open-registration platform.
(1a) we are also working on re-organizing the vhost names and namespaces
merging old content into new CMS.. stay tuned.
any content with a dubious license is currently being moved to
(2) bugzilla ? mantis ? trac ?- any volunteers, experts?
(3) subversion seems to be the common denominator!
we can provide import/export (from darcs,cvs,git,..) scripts.
and/or have each project choose it's flavor!
- our current server runs osX and older versions of RC-software,
we'll get a linux-box for this around July and revisit this issue.
I'll volunteer to do the git & gitweb setup.. darcs,svn&cvs are
(4) once we've consolidated the server backend - you can request new
mailing-lists to be hosted at linuxaudio.org!
(5) frankly: the sf.net file-release system sucks! and so do most
www-interactive file-browsers. - there are many possible solutions, all
with a twist in the details: no spam, little admin-overhead (accounts),
accessible from any OS,... - my current favorite is to have an incoming/
folder (alike sf.net) and a small custom web-CGI that allows
project-admins to *rsync* a subtree of incoming/ to their
download.linuxaudio.org web-space! - (we can allow to write to incoming/
via ftp,webdav,rsync,.. )
(6) once there are Forums on linuxaudio.org we can revisit the
per-project forum idea... ;) - drupal should already be able to do it!
There are a few general issues (eg. shared accounts/passwords, HTTPS/SSL
certs, proxy/cache ) to be addressed, before we start new web-project.
..just takes some time..
However I'm pleased to announce that we've now got a stable&clean web-
and mail-server setup (including backups, log-analysis -rotation,..
etc.) - and started fine-tuning both performance and security issues;
look&feel will improve further down the road.
robin, for the linuxaudio.org team
