A bot for TRAC

Ok, I know there is a python ircbot lib, and a lot of IRC bot implementations, RSS plugin that get info from TRAC SCM systems, etc. But anyway, I decided to write a IRC bot for TRAC, for learning purposes. And here is it: http://gnosislivre.org/websvn/.

I have just a first commit, and I know this code is very ugly, but I'll turn it better, I hope I could. This moment it only receive a number as parameter on any #channel and returns some info about the ticket. I can't forget to say that the debconf bot (from debian-br people) is being a great reference for me.

Let's say more interesting things: PSL-BA has now hackergotchi heads group, very funny: http://planeta.psl-ba.softwarelivre.org/heads.html

...is it really a interesting thing?

hmm, bye.

CCs and DFSG

I would like to use the Dropline Etiquette icons on Debian-BR-CDD Project, but its license is not DFSG compatible. So, is very common people asking about why CCs aren't DSFG compatible. The first step to understand it is, of course, reading the DFSG and CCs. But if you want a quickly way to know about CC and DFSG, take a look at debian-legal Summary of Creative Commons 2.0 Licenses.

Anyway, I've sent a email for the Dropline author asking for a possible changing in their license to a DFSG compatible, maybe following these debian-legal recomendations:

" Authors who use or are planning to use the Attribution 2.0 license should consider a similar Free Software license such as a BSD- or MIT-style license [BSD], [MIT]."

"Authors who use or are planning to use the Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 license should consider a similar Free Software license such as the GNU General Public License [GPL]."

Now I'm waiting...

PHPXMLRPC vulnerability

I've notice that php xml-rpc is vunerable, where a machine can be explored easily as listed here

ewiki users, please update your php xml-rpc. Wordpress users, don't worry, be happy :o)

Wow! See this video and enjoy this beautiful scene. It was made in Helsinki Sea Life, Jul 2005, by myself. If you know details about this animal please let me see, I forgot to take notes there.

Good podcasts

So, I have to admit, I use MacOS sometimes :o) And sometimes I learn interest things. Do you know podcasts? Yeah, of course. I'm always the last to learn about these technologies. Eureka! Now I can pratice my (bad) english by listening the podictionary while I'm driving. It's amazing!

You (and me) can use ipodder software to listen podcasts in GNU/Linux (ok, you already know that...)


I arrived in PoA yesterday to FISL 6, wich starts in June 1. I can see the hard work to organize one of the most meetings of free software and I hope help in somethings. A lot of PSL-BA people are here. Until now we have Valessio, Tassia, Humberto, Leo, Lucas, Carol, Aurelio, me and more...

This is a special moment for Debian, which intends to release Sarge soon, maybe in June 6. We are organizing a party for it in its stand.

We bring 100 Debian-BR-CDD t-shirts to sell there... help us! :o)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
