Overview of Red Hat Satellite 6.7 proxy improvements

Many organizations utilizing Red Hat Satellite have network policies that block direct access to the internet by the Satellite Server, and instead require that the Satellite Server go through an HTTP proxy to access the internet to synchronize content. Satellite 6.7 introduced some changes and new functionality around its support for connecting to the Red Hat CDN through a proxy that will be covered in this post. On versions of Satellite prior to 6.7, it was possible to enable utilization of a global proxy. However, in environments with multiple proxy servers, it was not possible to configure a different proxy server for individual repositories. With Satellite 6.7, in addition to the ability to set a global proxy, it is now also possible to configure proxies at the individual repository level or at the product level. Read more

Audiocasts/Shows: Ubuntu Podcast, Going Linux and Security Podcast

  • Ubuntu Podcast from the UK LoCo: S13E10 – Hospital on Wednesdays

  • Going Linux #392 · Accessibility on Linux

    Once upon a time, there were Linux distributions that focused on the needs of computer users with disabilities. Today's Ubuntu MATE does the best job of any modern desktop Linux at including the broadest out-of-the-box implementation of accessibility software. This is particularly valuable because Windows does not and the "officially supported" software applications for Windows that are focused on accessibility are also extremely expensive.

  • Josh Bressers: Episode 199 – Special cases are special: DNS, Websockets, and CSV

    Josh and Kurt talk about a grab bag of topics. A DNS security flaw, port scanning your machine from a web browser, and CSV files running arbitrary code. All of these things end up being the result of corner cases. Letting a corner case be part of a default setup is always a mistake. Yes always, not even that one time.

Debian: Kotlin, Utkarsh Gupta and Paul Wise

  • Debian GSoC Kotlin project blog: Kotlin Update

    Kotlin is being packaged under the Google Summer of Code within the Debian organization itself. The major reason behind bringing Kotlin in Debian is to update all the Android packages which are now heavily dependent upon the Kotlin libraries. The major work to bring Kotlin into Debian is done for the version 1.3.30, by Saif Abdul Cassim (goes by m36 on IRC) as a part of his GSoC'2019. All his contributions to the team can be found in his blog posts. So, for now, we have a bootstrap package and a Kotlin package for the version with 1.3.30. There were still changes needed as we lacked some of the dependencies for Kotlin, and the source package lacked copyright information and didn’t comply with Debian standards.
