I got it with email (thanks, Joey!). And you can read it here in the official Debian News section: the compromised machine gluck.debian.org and all the services it’s running are back to normal.
Red Hat the provider of open source solutions to the enterprise, announced the winners of the Red Hat Scholarships 2005 - 2006 program.
The Debian GNU/Linux project today admitted a hacker had compromised one of its internal servers.
[Admitted?!? Hey, FUDnet, how did this admission come about? Did ZDNet staff take some Debian developer into a back room and beat him or her with a rubber hose until the secret act was admitted? What does the alleged reporter report:
"Early this morning we discovered that someone had managed to compromise gluck.debian.org," Debian developer James Troup wrote in an e-mail to the Debian community shortly before 4am AEST.
Wow. So a Debian developer admitted the compromise, via e-mail, open to the scrutiny of the entire world, with no prompting from outside parties. Exactly where is the denial that must precede an admission? You can't admit something you haven't denied, either explicitly or implicitly.
Bah. This is a case of attempting to sensationalise for clicks, with no regard for truth. -- grouch]
Recently people have been led to believe that the solution to spam is just around the corner. In the top running, we have SPF, Sender-ID and Domain Keys, but will any of them actually help? The answer is: only slightly. We'll explain why and cover how each of these technologies work.
The Open Source Development Labs (OSDL), a global consortium dedicated to accelerating the adoption of Linux(R) and open source software, today announced it has appointed Colin Hope-Murray as its Linux User Advisory Council (LUAC) director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
This article demonstrates how to add Subversion support to Eclipse and how to perform basic version-control activities from the IDE.

[As LWN subscriber dune73 put it, "Good journalism puts the finger where it hurts. This is an example of good journalism. Thanks."
How open are we willing to be? -- grouch]
I have prepared an account of the history of .Net and Java that's intended to balance more fanciful post-mortem accounts (of .Net and Java, not of me). It reads thus: Sun created Java to cash in on the success of Visual Basic and to convince development managers that C++ coders are all slobbering toddlers playing with nail guns.

Microsoft appear to be up their old tricks again. This time it's the "let's work with odt to show how much we care" farce. If you work in an office you probably need to pay attention to this.
Red Hat , provider of open source solutions to the enterprise, announced the growth of its partner network, presence, and services in Bangladesh. This enhanced network enables Red Hat to continue providing regional support, training and sales activities, in addition to localized solutions for Bangladesh.
Using open source software, a rational license policy, and modular hardware, this router company is challenging the marketplace with lower prices and all the features, carving out a cost conscious niche for itself.
40 school girls are currently being introduced to technology in the workplace at IBM's campus in Sandton, Johannesburg. Big Blue's technology camp, Exploring Interests in Technology and Engineering, hopes to lure more women into the technology professions.
[Remember GNOME's call for women? Maybe camps like these will eliminate the shortage of women developers. -- grouch]
One of the more exciting developments for networking enthusiasts has been the evolution of open-source firmware replacements for certain popular, inexpensive routers (usually the famed Linux-running Linksys WRT54G).
While replacement firmware offers the promise of significantly expanded features, greater customization, and mondo-tweakability, they also carry some risk. Should misfortune strike, you might - oh, let's say, render your router into a useless hunk of plastic. Or, as victims prefer to say, you could "brick it." How does a router become a brick? And if it does, is there any hope of bringing it back to life?
The short answers: "by accident" and "yes...sometimes."
Exactly one month after its systems management beta launch at JBoss World Conference, FiveRuns is rapidly approaching 1,000 beta subscribers.

In this second article of a two-part series
, we demonstrate TurboGears, another open source MVC-style Web application framework based on Python. This article shows how to use TurboGears
to create a Web-based shopping application and concludes with a comparison between Turbogears and Django.
Linux and open source software lag behind the proprietary market in the number and quality of available video games, especially in the realm of first-person shooters (FPS), a genre dominated by the likes of Doom, Quake, Unreal, Half-Life, and Halo. Here, Linux is an afterthought, if not ignored completely. Tremulous, a mixture of FPS and RTS (real-time strategy) written by Tim Angus, is an exception to that rule.
If you are planning to port your Unix apps to Linux, be sure to consider the technical, business and project management perspectives, says Alfredo Mendoza, one of the co-authors of Unix to Linux Porting. A thorough assessment of your porting plan from those three perspectives could cut down on unforeseen events in the actual porting and testing.
In this interview with SearchOpenSource.com, Mendoza gives IT managers tips on where to begin when planning to porting apps and what issues IT managers can expect to encounter when porting older Unix apps.
