KDE Sprints - who wins? (KDE.News)

Linux Weekly News - p, 2015-08-28 01:21
KDE.News looks at KDE sprints and their benefits. The organization is doing some fundraising to help support its sprints, so it is trying get the word out about these code-focused events: "To start with, KDE sprints are intensive sessions centered around coding. They take place in person over several days, during which time skillful developers eat, drink and sleep code. There are breaks to refresh and gain perspective, but mostly sprints involve hard, focused work. All of this developer time and effort is unpaid. However travel expenses for some developers are covered by KDE. KDE is a frugal organization with comparatively low administrative costs, and only one paid person who works part time. So the money donated for sprints goes to cover actual expenses. Who gets the money? Almost all of it goes to transportation companies."

Grsecurity stable patches to be limited to sponsors

Linux Weekly News - cs, 2015-08-27 06:29
The developers of the Grsecurity kernel-hardening patch set have announced that, due to claimed ongoing GPL and trademark violations, the public distribution of the "stable" series of patches will stop. "We decided that it is unfair to our sponsors that the above mentioned unlawful players can get away with their activity. Therefore, two weeks from now, we will cease the public dissemination of the stable series and will make it available to sponsors only. The test series, unfit in our view for production use, will however continue to be available to the public to avoid impact to the Gentoo Hardened and Arch Linux communities."
