mail subsystem upgraded
     posted by beuc, Sat May 23 18:17:18 2015 - 1 reply

mail.gna.org was reinstalled with Debian Jessie.
Let us know if there's any issue.
This should be the last major system upgrade before long :)

dl/home/cvs/svn/www.gna.org upgraded to debian8
     posted by beuc, Thu May 21 22:12:23 2015 - 1 reply

Everything at Gna! but the mail system was upgraded to Debian Jessie. Let us know if you think something is wrong.

Some spam was also cleaned-up.
Cheers!

Gna.org SSL certificate renewed
     posted by zerodeux, Thu Apr 24 07:13:06 2014 - 4 replies

While we were quick to patch the Heartbleed attack, it took a little bit more time and administrative work to renew our https://gna.org/ and https://mail.gna.org/ certificates.

It is now a single and freshly issued multi-domain certificate issued by Comodo via Gandi. Although your preferred web browser will automatically trust it, you're welcome to verify by yourself. The SHA fingerprint should read 94:69:D1:5B:B6:B0:64:08:E3:08:97:3B:6A:9F:5F:9E:54:22:D1:D5.

Heartbleed status and measures
     posted by beuc, Wed Apr 9 09:47:29 2014 - 2 replies

Gna! was patched to address the recent openssl "heartbleed" vulnerability.

Gna! has been running a vulnerable version since up to 2 months, and the attacker could silently retreive information from part of the system memory, including credentials and private https keys.

As a safety measure, we removed the current sessions (so you need to reconnect), and are in the process of renewing the https certificate.
Changing your password is also recommended.

mail subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sat Mar 8 23:02:17 2014 - 0 replies

mail.gna.org was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit.
As usual, let us know if there's any issue.

From the sysadmin's side, this was the last major system upgrade.
Now maybe we can go back to the programmer's side and think about fusionning with FusionForge :)

Reboot
     posted by beuc, Tue Mar 4 22:14:15 2014 - 4 replies

About one hour ago the service became unresponsive. This was quickly detected and a reboot was issued. Everything is back to normal.

Apparently this is due to a memory leak in one of the new daemons.
We're investigating!

download+homepage subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sun Mar 2 21:53:20 2014 - 9 replies

dl.gna.org & home.gna.org was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit. Let us know if there's any issue.

As previously mentionned the system now uses configuration management allowing automated reinstalls, and we even share the recipes - 100%-free-hosting spirit :)
http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/admin/trunk/puppet/

Also we fixed news@gna.org so a few of you will receive the first Gna! news by e-mail after a long hiatus :]

svn+cvs subsystem automatically reinstalled
     posted by beuc, Sat Mar 1 16:46:40 2014 - 0 replies

The VCS subsystem was reinstalled with Debian Wheezy 64-bit. Let us know if there's any issue.

In addition, the Gna installation is becoming fully automated, and reinstallable in matter of minutes! Feel free to comment on the in-progress Puppet recipes available at http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/admin/trunk/puppet/

CVS upgraded, and deprecated
     posted by beuc, Thu Feb 27 21:33:49 2014 - 1 reply

We found a way do without our venerable CVS patches and upgrade to the latest version from Debian, from "stable" 1.11 to "feature" 1.12. Let us know if there's any issue.

Also, we plan to progressively deprecate CVS, since it's increasingly hazardous to maintain it. Today we disabled CVS for new projects. We're also thinking about how to archive or convert CVS repositories within the next few months. This probably involves providing Git repos :)

ext4 love
     posted by beuc, Fri Feb 14 00:07:08 2014 - 0 replies

File systems are progressively moved to ext4.
Short interruptions may happen when doing the final sync.
Let us know if you feel a difference :)
