OK I became again lazy to log my works and combined 2 weeks again :-).
Most of my work is for Debian for this 2 weeks.
- More reviews from Jakub on suckless-tools and more fixing :-). This time Jakub
identified that ssid is not at all different the setsid from utils-linux package
which resulted in me writing to Anselm Garbe of suckless project, who told that
first reason for writing ssid was setsid code during that time which really does
suck. He agreed to obsolete the ssid project after some clarifications.
- After mail to Conor Lane Smith upstream author of sprop and then writing to Anselm,
sprop now has finally is placed under dl.suckless.org/tools which means I don't need
to refer to Mercurial tip anymore.
- fonts-deva-extra is no more containing the Gargi and Sarai fonts as both fonts
have got upstream and now will be part of fonts-gargi and fonts-sarai. I'm now
reviewing fonts-gargi which is being packaged by Jishnu. To be frank I'm loving the
review process ;-).
- After a while I again worked on friendica package for Debian and after fixing a stupid
mistake by me I released a version of package for testing as I run my friendica on my
laptop itself. I did try piuparts for testing but couldn't get it working. After testing
I got positive feedback from the fellow friendicans . Note that  will be available
only if my laptop is online :-). Now I need to try and automate installation of webserver
confs I know might not be good idea but my idea is making friendica installation on Freedombox
without any hassle. Of course suggestions are welcome :-) package source is at 
- I got a grave bug filed on suckless-tools #692737 which
of course can't be taken as security hole directly in fact it was a feature of slock which
later got modified later by user patches. After talking with person who filed bug who actually
said he is not interested in getting it for Wheezy I reduced severity to important. To be
frank this feature is part of 39 version of suckless-tools but change is too much to include
it in Wheezy and I was not interested in making another version of suckless-tools I already
made 38-2 for wheezy fixing important bug, filed by Jakub.
This week was bit hectic I couldn't dedicate much time for any programming. This week I'm on vacation
and will get more time to work on FLOSS and other coding stuffs. Only that I'm on slow network
connection :-). Ok cya next week (hopefully)
PS: My last weekly log never showed up in planet.d.o not sure what happened may be because I
played with feed generating jekyll scripts. Hope this will show up in planet.d.o
