Software

Torrents are a great and unique way to acquire and share files with other people from around the world.

We GNOME users have many torrent clients to choose from, but the two most popular choices are Deluge and Transmission.

On this article, we will try to examine the pros and cons of each application, and determine which one is the best.

On the boundaries of GPL enforcement

Last October, the Software Freedom Conservancy (SFC) and Free Software Foundation (FSF) jointly published "The Principles of Community-Oriented GPL Enforcement". That document described what those organizations believe the goal of enforcement efforts should be and how those efforts should be carried out. Several other organizations endorsed the principles, including the netfilter project earlier this month. It was, perhaps, a bit puzzling that the project would make that endorsement at that time, but a July 19 SFC blog post sheds some light on the matter.
