It took me like five clicks to get to …


00:49 Changeset [24317] by geofft
In reactivate: * /lib/init/mount-functions.sh is gone as a side effect of Karmic increasingly _actually_ using Upstart, so stop using it and just implement the (very small) logic we wanted from it ourselves. * Add a two-minute timeout to postinst code that could be an infinite loop in appropriately unfortunate circumstances.

In linerva: * Use nc -q0 (quit on 0 seconds of stdin being closed, rather than only when nc gets a signal) so that we don't leak nc processes every time someone visits http://linerva.mit.edu/.


21:21 Changeset [24308] by broder
Promote from-config to a dependency of clients.
19:27 Changeset [24307] by broder
Promote mitmailutils back to a dependency in clients, dotfiles, xsession. We had previously dropped it to a recommendation in all three of those packages to address the fact that it was uninstallable on Karmic and Squeeze, due to a dependency on libsasl2-krb4-mit. Now that mitmailutils uses GSSAPI/krb5, the libsasl2-krb4-mit dependency is gone, and it's installable everywhere.
19:06 Changeset [24306] by geofft
In locker-software: * Run xstata instead of stata, so that it works at all (since stata does not spawn an xterm). * Run matlab -desktop instead of matlab, so you get something more than an xterm.
13:17 Changeset [24305] by broder
Now that mitmailutils use GSSAPI/krb5, cyrus-sasl2-mit isn't needed.

19:26 Changeset [24300] by geofft
In mitmailutils: * Switch from Hesiod to using *.mail.mit.edu so we can use GSSAPI authentication (Trac: #403). * Because of a Cyrus SASL bug (documented in that ticket) regarding parsing long encrypted responses, set maxssf to zero to send mail in the clear. This isn't as terrible as it sounds because mail travels in the clear on the public Internet anyway, and a bunch of client programs (Pine on Athena 9, for instance) don't use encryption, and the major use of mitmailutils is `from` and `mailquota` anyway. Patch based on one from Jonathan Reed <jdreed@mit.edu>.

Stick the ".debathena" before the ".jpg" or ".png" in gdm-config. This means that things like gnome-open and open (on OS X) will know what to do with our images.
09:42 Changeset [24293] by broder
Set the svn:mime-type on things that are images. This way we don't get massive binary blobs in our e-mail.

22:38 Changeset [24291] by geofft
In finger: * Change ^ 100 to ^ 0100, since this code appears to be intended to do something to sanitize control characters. Setting bit 0100 (01000000) for characters under 32 converts them to the corresponding uppercase ASCII letter (e.g., ^A to A); XORing them with decimal 100 (01100100) is meaningless. * Pass through characters that are not in the ASCII set unsanitized. This allows .plans and .projects with UTF-8 text to be displayed.
