I did actually look at the issue around NFS shares. Werner's change fixes most but not all problems. Definitely an improvement .

The main issue is that NFS shares from same server have the same device id.

An example of how whitelists are incompatible with decentralization: There is ruby gem for OEmbed called Onebox, used by the Discourse software. OEmbed is an open web protocol with discovery built in - pages announce that they have embeddable content. But Onebox is whitelist-based - with URLs like youtube, vimeo, twitter. Even though Mastodon supports OEmbed, Discourse won't embed Mastodon toots because of this. It would take submitting every single potential instance URL to the whitelist.

This kinda brings me around to: Sometimes people want whitelist-only federation in Mastodon. Sometimes they want a silo completely without federation. It's free software. You can do that, but you cannot expect me to be on board with that. I heard someone say that it's authoritarian - for me to build & optimize around a One Official Way. I don't see how a software project could thrive if it *doesn't* focus like that.

Anyone else have crash when you toot? Not reply or boot just a new Toot

Upgraded my version of last week. The interface was pretty good before but looks even better now.

Had to fiddle around with the PVR plugin but it's all smooth sailing now. The link to the mythtv skip advertising feature works better now.

I think it was previously Gotham or Isengard before the update.

I had such good intentions to look at Werner's report on the NFS psmisc bug. Future me when you read this stop goofing off on minetest and mastodon and go read it properly.

@bortzmeyer Personally, I'm holding out until they add the irc client and mp3 player features to them.

Being the maintainer of has given me lots of practice at the Debian security process.

I'm actually doing a local presentation at work because of it. Having to write it down also shows its quite a lengthy process; from bug discovered to the packages out and notice created.

At least that security bug is in the plugin not core, so no package updating for me.

The plugin is called wpstats and is used by a lot of places.

@Gargron @noiob for some odd reason crashes every time I try to view that.
