👉 Un rapport montre que depuis 1971, Total Energies connaît son impact sur le dérèglement climatique et n'a rien fait !

😡 #TotalMent depuis 50 ans et met tout en œuvre (fabrique du doute, lobbying anti-régulation, #GreenWashing) pour empêcher la transition climatique.

✊ Demandons aux pouvoirs publics et aux acteurs financiers d’imposer à Total le respect des objectifs de l’Accord de Paris !

Voici ☕ Café , un événement mensuel pour échanger trucs et astuces dans un contexte scientifique.

🗓 Première session mardi 26 novembre à 13h !

We filed a lawsuit today against Vizio because they fail to fulfill even the basic requirements of the #GPL. You can check out the complete materials here:

valgrind -o log … ❎
valgrind --output=log … ❎
valgrind --output-file=log … ❎
valgrind --log-file=log ✅

Quizz: environment variable definitions in ‘.bashrc’ or ‘.bash_profile’? Which is for the log-in shell?

If like me you’re part of the large group of people who always wonder, ‘guix shell --check’ is for you:

On signing commits in and contributing from a phone:

“This requirement would severely limit my ability to contribute to the project. Right now, I mostly merge leaf package updates where the maintainer has approved from my phone.”


@civodul I would respond to this in more detail on the mailing list if I were in a position to do so but: a similar risk exists with GitHub commit hashes. GitHub consolidates forks of a repo on their backend, so you can refer to the URL of the upstream project but with a commit from your fork.

If you're not extra careful in review, you can end up pulling in malicious code that's not actually in the upstream repo.

Abusing content-addressed source code download fallback to pass malicious packages through review: realistic?

A #RISCV 64-bit CPU core licensed under #gpl3 that can actually boot #Linux

#openhardware is getting more feasible even to the core!

What comes to mind are these two blog posts from this year:

The Modern Packager's Security Nightmare - Gentoo Blogs
What's in a package - Guix HPC blog by @civodul

some horror stories there - about Rust, Go, and Python.

and I remember @neauoire describing the absurd bandwidth usage by Rust's cargo downloading trees of dependencies.

“Reproducible builds for Debian: a big step forward”:

A nice article by a hacker on what it takes to rebuild old packages (it’s more work than ‘guix time-machine’!), reliance on snapshot.debian.org, how its limitations were overcome, and more.

Framasoft published this morning a donation campaign for 2022. I had the honor to fully illustrate it. You can flip more than thirty illustrated cards and discover this way this not-for-profit org.
Framasoft is really important to me. Pls support them💜
