I got Application Manager!

NM process seems to go faster than I expected, I just got assigned application manager. I hope I will not cause much troubles to Christoph Berg :-).

Nanoblogger package is mine

Thanks to Andreas Metzler who kidnly offered sponsoring for me, updated nanoblogger package (which fixes all bugs reported in debian BTS) will be in archives on next dinstall run (tommorow).

As this is RC version, there might still be some problems, but it should be better than previous version in archives.

Sonata - yet another MPD client

I quickly got used to MPD for playing music. The client-server approach perfectly fits my needs and I can control it using any interface I want. Command line is always appreciated, but nice GUI is also helful.

So far I used Pygmy, which is far from being perfect, but was best of those I tested. Now I found its fork called Sonata which looks much better. Unfortunately it is not yet in Debian, any volunteers? :-)

What am I doing wrong?

What the hell am I doing wrong that I can not send mail to any @debian.org address?

SMTP error from remote mail server after end of data:
host master.debian.org [70.103.162.30]: 550 Administrative prohibition

None of SMTP servers I used is blacklisted and I haven't seen problem with any other recipient than master.debian.org. Anyway it would be great if I would know what this Administrative prohibition means. After googling I found out that it might be something bad in my headers, but nothing what would tell me how to fix it...

Nanoblogger in Debian

When I thought about blog engine to use for this blog, I primarily searched in Debian archives, so that I don't have to maintain own copy of that system. At the end I anyway chosen nanoblogger, which was not (and still is not) in perfect state in Debian package and I used CVS version at the end anyway.

I just noticed that nanoblogger package has been orphaned yesterday. After ensuring that I won't have problems with finding sponsor, I decided to addopt it and bring it back to usable state. As I will me mostly offline during weekend (or busy with new Wammu release), I will try make new upload within next week.

Again fork of cdrtools?

This issue has arised already for many times (I remember it from times I worked for SUSE and there were some problems with unmodificable source parts), but this time it seems really serious. Current problem is in CDDL being incomaptible with GNU GPL while both are being used for cdrecord code. I again have to say I don't uderstand Jörgs behaviour.

Debian has replaced cdrtools with for of it called cdrkit. So keep in mind that you will have to use wodim instead of cdrecord in near future.
