Behind the scenes: Andrea Veri, the new GNOME part-time System Administrator.

Some days ago Andrea Veri was  chosen by the GNOME Foundation to support and maintain GNOME's IT infrastructure.

His hiring comes at the end of a journey, during which Andrea has shown his technical abilities and passion for GNOME, and could be considered a sort of acknowledgement and thanksfor all the work he's done so far.

The love between Andrea and Free Software started when he was a teenager and a Fedora user. In 2005, he discovered Ubuntu and got involved with its community very quickly. Andrea joined the Ubuntu Italian community, then became an Ubuntu and MOTU member. In 2010, he became a Debian Developer and started his collaboration with the Debian GNOME Team. The deep experience Andrea collected while managing both .deb and .rpm packaging systems makes him very comfortable working with different environments. It's not easy to comprehend the role of a System Administrator, because that's the person behind the machine. A System Administrator must ensure that the infrastructure running is constructed in a workmanlike manner, and ensure that everyone involved in the community has the tools to work at their best.

There are many key activities behind a community as large as GNOME, some of them considered mission-critical, such as the upkeep of the web server or of http://git.gnome.org, where developers store and collaborate on GNOME's code.

"The work of system administrators is often undervalued", says Andrea, "but I firmly believe that having a good infrastructure allows us to optimize several processes within a community or a company".

This could be one of the reasons that led to the creation of events such as the
 Sysadmin Appreciation Day, when you can express your gratitude for the hard work of System Administrators everywhere.

Andrea's perspective and plans for the infrastructure team have changed radically since he was hired by the GNOME Foundation. Previously, as a contributor, he wouldn't plan effective changes, but he can now focus on dozens of things to do and plan more radical changes to the GNOME infrastructure, such as installing services like Gitorious, ownCloud, etc.

«This hiring is a dream that came true. Working for the DE that has marked the history of Linux and the Free Software movement is both an honour and a pleasure beyond compare. There's much to do regarding to GNOME's infrastructure – you can check the todo list – but I'll do of my best».

The effort which Andrea spent over the last several years has qualified him to be accepted as a GNOME Foundation member,  and,  some time thereafter, to serve as the Chairman of the GNOME Foundation  Membership Committee. For now, best of luck to Andrea with his new responsibilities, and thanks to GNOME System Administrators everywhere!

Hi,

the first beta release of development cycle heading to GNOME 3.8 is
finally available.
Sorry for the delay, some technical and personal problems make the release to
take more time than expected.
With this release we are officially now in "The Freeze" [1]:

- UI Freeze: No UI changes may be made without approval from the
release-team and
      notification to gnome-doc-list< at >gnome.org;
- Feature Freeze: new functionality is implemented now; API/ABI Freeze
for 3.7.x:
      Developer APIs should be frozen at this point;
- String Change Announcement Period: All string changes must be
announced to both
      gnome-i18n< at >gnome.org and gnome-doc-list< at >gnome.org.

More details about changes and news for this beta are available here:

   core: http://download.gnome.org/core/3.7/3.7.90/NEWS
   apps: http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.7/3.7.90/NEWS


The GNOME 3.7.90 release itself is available here:

   core sources: http://download.gnome.org/core/3.7/3.7.90/
   apps sources: http://download.gnome.org/apps/3.7/3.7.90/


JHBuild modulesets to compile GNOME 3.7.90 by hand are available here

   http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.7.90/

Check the Smoketesting document [1] for instructions about how to compile
and test GNOME with these modulesets.


WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
status.

For more information about 3.8, the full schedule, the official module
lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colourful 3.8
page:

Recently Carlos added FTS4 and snippet support to Tracker. We merged that to master after doing some tests and have reduced the database size on disk by doing this. I released 0.15.2 yesterday with the FTS4 work, and today I decided to add a richer experience to tracker-search.

Below you can see me searching for passport and sue found in some of the documents indexed on my machine. The colour there is quite nice to separate hits and snippets/contexts where the terms were found. This search without any arguments really will search ALL resources in the database:

tracker-search-snippets

This second screenshot shows searching for love with all music in particular. So you can use this for all areas of tracker-search:

tracker-search-snippets2

With any luck, we will be releasing a 0.16.0 in time for the next GNOME release with this all available in!

Hi,

I've finally finished to move all the files from our old main NFS node to
the new one. The switch will happen tomorrow, the services involved:

- /home/users
- /ftp
- /mailman (mail archives)

The services involved will be shutdown to prevent any data loss during the
move, I'll make sure to run an extra rsync before switching to the new
machine.

Have an awesome day!

The move was successfull. Thanks for your patience. Bugzilla is back again
but its DB is running on another host now.

Have an awesome day,

[ Regarding the new mail.gnome.org ]

On Wed, Jan 30, 2013 at 04:10:52PM +0100, Andrea Veri wrote:

That was a Perl script which failed because of a missing module. It
didn't print any error message. Instead it just used 100% and that
took Andrea+Owen a long time to figure out (script has not changed since
2002 or so :).

I've rewritten the script in Python. It is not live yet, but over the
coming days I'll be testing it. This script handles the URLs below:
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/$LISTNAME/
(so not https://mail.gnome.org/archives/, just every link beneath it)

In the new script I changed the layout. You can see it at:
https://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnome-bugsquad/
though it'll be overwritten as soon as a new email is sent to that
mailing list.

If you notice errors please file a bug at:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=sysadmin

If you want to see the old+new script:
http://git.gnome.org/browse/mhonarc/tree/ (archive.pl and archive.py)


UTF-8 archive problem:
Note: there is another problem in where the archives are not in UTF-8.
That is due to upstart (RHEL6) not starting Postfix with
LANG=en_US.UTF-8. Proper way to configure that is welcome. Note that
postfix is just a sysvinit service in RHEL6, so the job configuration
does not apply AFAIK.
See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=693433 if you have ideas.
