Retiring the sparc32 port

For the last couple of years the sparc32 port did not have an active upstream maintainer, so the task of kernel maintenance has been shifted on to the developers and contributors, working on Debian's sparc port. It was suggested that support for it should be dropped in the next Debian's release. While there were a few objections, nobody stepped up to the plate and volunteered to become a new sparc32 maintainer. Thus, the only option we have at this point is to officially declare that lenny will not include support for sparc32 hardware.

Web 2.0 shows its data muscle

Mashups are, of course, the "new black" in the world of web services, but building them does mean getting access to data on different databases and services - and that can sometimes be a bit of a problem. So a web server that is aimed at making that task a great deal easier may be worth a look. That is one of the main claims being made for Version 2 of Sri Lanka-based WSO2's Web Services Application Server (WSAS). The company claims it is the first to feature data services that easily tap relational databases for mashups, together with Eclipse integration to let developers work directly in the IDE, and the first clustering available on a web services server.

Linux: Looking Toward 2.4.35

The 2.4 stable kernel tree has been maintained by Willy Tarreau for a year, since July of 2006. When recently asked if the tree had been abandoned, Willy replied,"no it's not abandoned at all! The difficulty with 2.4 is to get user feedback on patches. While in 2.6, there are hundreds or thousands of testers for every release, in 2.4, I have to wait longer after every release in order to start collecting problem reports, or confirmation of fixes. People using it in production generally cannot reboot a machine in the evening just to try a patch. Also, subsystem maintainers have less time to spend on it and are themselves slowed down by the slow feedback process."
