Yes for Debian Maintainers...


* Yes, they can upload crappy packages but we can ask to revoke an account.
* Yes, they can upload crappy packages but someone must sponsor the 1st upload.
* Yes, they can upload crap but a DD is advocating them. If they are smart enough to fool a DD to get an DM account then they are smart enough to fool him for the DD process.
* Yes, they can seek sponsors but finding sonsors is not that easy (At least for me).

Perhaps there's a way to identify the DM uploads so we can do more checks "not part of the process" ?

mbox splitter


Just because I can't run sa-learn on my 15,000+ messages spam folder. It'll crash due to some hardware problems.
I thought that splitting the mailbox into smaller files will allow me to feed it to sa-learn.
I'm not sure something similar doesn't exist but I wrote mine anyway ;-)

The only problem is it consumes a lot of CPU and RAM, it was killed/crashed multiple times but it worked and allowed me to feed my spam mailbox to spamassassin!

No connectivity.


No connectivity since Friday evening. I took all the precautions to ensure my connection will be working in the new place but it seems I'll have to wait until Thursday.

No email or anything. Even worse, I have a FTBFS bug that needs fixing.

Why are all the hotspots I find encrypted ? ;-)

Update: mbar has a free wifi connection but they allow only http and ssh. The more I use ssh tunneling, the more I love ssh and the more I feel proud of FOSS! ;-)
