OSCAL, Open Labs, Mozilla & grooming women for Outreachy

Filed under

Monday, 11 October is the UN's International Day for the Girl Child. The definition of Girl Child varies from country to country. In the law of Albania, the age of consent can be as low as 14 if you can convince (bribe) a judge that a 14 year old girl has achieved sexual maturity. Legal text.

What does it look like when children aged 16 and 17 make software for big corporations to use?

Today we find out

Here is a team photo from Ura Design, one of the Albanian companies using the hackerspace as a front for people trafficking. In the team we see a former Outreachy, Renata Gegaj beside a future Outreachy, Anja Xhakani.

  • Outreachy Tindernships & Debian photo sites

    Lior Kaplan is the developer who attended the controversial FOSSCamp with the Albanians in 2017. Did he meet this woman from another community there and vouch for her to attend DebConf?

    On the left of Lior, there are three women who participated in Google Summer of Code during 2018. That was their qualification for a ticket to DebConf. They are Enkelena (1), Diellza (2) and Elena (3). Enkelena (1) is the woman who struck up a relationship with an Ubuntu employee, Lukas Kanashiro.

    The woman who Kaplan is holding in this photo was subsequently employed by GNOME Foundation. She joined at exactly the same time as Molly de Blanc, former girlfriend of the Debian leader Chris Lamb.

    The photo was taken on the DebConf18 day trip. DebConf18 finished on 5 August 2018. Mr Pocock heard about these relationships at DebConf and on 27 August 2018 he publicly resigned as mentor and administrator in Google Summer of Code and Outreachy. His resignation is written diplomatically to protect the privacy of the people with conflicts of interest. Jonathan Carter, Sam Hartman and Chris Lamb have created a series of false accusations that have forced widespread discussion of these photos.

  • The film that predicted DebConf19: Wild Orchid, 1989

    Within the trailer lasting barely two minutes, we encounter ominous references to the central themes of the DebConf19 Outreachy tindernship scandal: a woman, her first internship and first trip, coincidentally, in Brazil. Men with power and money. Public exhibition. Humiliation of a woman. This could be a Debian Outreachy tindernship but it is just a movie.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
