    Project mention: Anyone using apt-cacher-ng to cache xbps packages? | | 2022-09-29
  • sytest

    Black-box integration testing for Matrix homeservers

    Project mention: Signal Reflections: Why federated protocols don't work | | 2022-02-12

    I like that Matrix has a separate system/acceptance test that any implementation can run against to check compatibility:

    I want any government to help the community set rules, and provide transparency. As opposed to encouraging or implementing mono/oligopolies.

    One way of using an acceptance test could be to centrally name and shame/fame the various implementations. (Like for web tech.)

  • os-autoinst-distri-opensuse

    Project mention: How to enable upgrades in background | | 2022-01-25 if you want to make a PR for one of your ideas.

  • website

    The source code for the website (by beyondgrep)

    Project mention: Feature comparison of ack, ag, Git-grep, grep and ripgrep | | 2021-10-24

    The "print lines by number" was there because earlier versions of ack had a `--line=N` feature, where you could say "ack --line=15-18" and print those four lines. I dropped it because it was hardly any better than using sed.

    If you've got suggestions on improvements, please submit an issue. I'd love to hear them.
