ViewRSS: revised categorization of messages

Category: general,
Source: info,
Language: en,

.
We have updated the ‘Source’ tag of our rss messages. Instead of one source by program we have now sources for security, Linux-systems and other programs. We have also revised the categorization between ‘info’ and ‘action’ so that you can view all relevant news from past years without having to scroll over old petitions. You may specify ‘articles & info’ in the ‘Query Options’ menu to view previous news and new articles.



xchroot v2.5 - now with mount mirroring

Category: programs,
Source: LinuxSW,
Language: en,
Type:
update
.
xchroot has a new feature: It can mirror mounts into the root as well as out of the root while a chroot is in progress. This is achieved by forking a mirror-mountd process. Furthermore the code has been cleaned up to allow faster unmounts on exit, prettier printing with three message levels and an effective polling whether a sub-process has terminated on exit. Mounting the home directory into the root can now be done with a simple command line switch. As there have been done some bigger changes to xchroot, further testing is welcome.

FFF remembers us of the 1.5° target

Fridays for Future Tea Light Action on 2020-12-11 in Klagenfurt Fridays for Future has also remembered in Klagenfurt, Austria with a tea ligth lettering on the New Square about the 1.5°C target (). The reduction commmitments of the Council of Europe do currently amount to -55% netto (which equals 50.5%-52.8% brutto) which is however still insufficient for the 1.5° target that required by now -80%. Netto means that you need to subtract the CO2 absorbation achieved by nature. That would already be too much for insular states and the coral reefs. China has commited to a reduction of 65% up to 2030 in comparison with the GDP.



ViewRSS: search for a regular expression

Category: general,

It is a new feature that you can search in the online RSS-viewer for messages containing a regular expression. That can be a singleton word, a choice between multiple words like ‘(atea|debcheckroot)’ or it can be several words separated by ‘.*’ that must then occur in the specified order. If you want to search for an entire word and not an expression, which can also equal the part of a word, you must add a space at the beginning and the end, like ‘ EU ’. There is no case sensitivity between upper and lower case. If you wanna use the regular expression special characters ‘^’ or ‘$’ for the beginning and end of a message then you must respectively follow or precede these special characters also by a space. It is sufficient that a regular expression is encountered in any of many translations of a message in order for all of these messages to be displayed.
