Gna.org SSL certificate renewed
     posted by zerodeux, Thu 24 Apr 2014 07:13:06 AM UTC - 0 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 09 Apr 2014 09:47:29 AM UTC - 1 reply

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 08 Mar 2014 11:02:17 PM UTC - 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 04 Mar 2014 10:14:15 PM UTC - 2 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 02 Mar 2014 09:53:20 PM UTC - 8 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 01 Mar 2014 04:46:40 PM UTC - 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 27 Feb 2014 09:33:49 PM UTC - 0 replies

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 14 Feb 2014 12:07:08 AM UTC - 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 :)

Reboot
     posted by beuc, Tue 11 Feb 2014 09:43:39 PM UTC - 0 replies

We just made a clean routine reboot of the systems.
Sorry for not warning in advance, we will announce better next time :)

SSH keys notification
     posted by beuc, Thu 06 Feb 2014 10:33:07 PM UTC - 0 replies

A few of you received warnings about SSH keys being modified today (2014-02-06). It was due to switching to a new authentication system (based on libnss-mysql-bg), there was a spurious notification on the very first key install.
