Novo serviço no Launchpad – Personal Package Archive

A Canonical lançou a versão beta de um novo serviço denominado “Personal Package Archive”. Este serviço permite a um programador ou equipa de desenvolvimento utilizar as ferramentas disponíveis no Launchpad para criar e publicar os seus próprios pacotes. Cada utilizador pode usar, gratuitamente, até 1GB de espaço para guardar software livre.

Nas palavras de Mark Shuttleworth:

” Many developers want to modify existing packages, or create new packages of their software. The PPA service allows anyone to publish a package without having to ask permission or join the Ubuntu project as a developer. This is a tremendous innovation in the free software community. We hope that PPA will make it easier for developers and development teams who have excellent ideas to get their work into the hands of users for testing and feedback. They also get to mix with experienced packagers to improve their skills. PPA is a build system, a publishing system and a community experience. “

A versão final só irá estar disponível a 22 de Agosto e permitirá a criação de pacotes para as arquitecturas x86 e AMD64. Até lá, para participar no programa beta, é necessário enviar um email para:

Faraday Cage

High Voltage Cable Inspection

Touching the rod to the wire brings the helicopter to same potential as the wire, so he can move between them without getting electrocuted. The Faraday cage adds an extra layer of protection since the charge remains outside the suit. Truly amazing!

Ubuntu for All

A mailing list for the Ubuntu For All project has just been set up.

The Ubuntu philosophy of “Humanity to others” and “I am what I am because of who we all are” are important to the Ubuntu community. We are a worldwide community that prides itself on friendliness. Unfortunately, some demographics in this wonderful community are struggling.

The Ubuntu For All project aims to overcome barriers that, despite best efforts, still do exist in the Ubuntu Community.

While each focus team has its own set of challenges, there remains a degree of commonality which by working together, can be tackled alot easier. So, with that in mind, focus teams and projects under the Ubuntu For All umbrella work together and assist each other with ideas and advice for overcoming issues faced.

The project aggregates Ubuntu Accessibility, Ubuntu LGBT, Ubuntu Youth and Ubuntu Women.
