Is there a day one does not learn something new?

Thanks a lot for the pointer, much appreciated.

With that my previous comment should be seen obsolete.

Best,

Everyone who knows me knows I'm all for transparency, but if it was me
trying to reach out to the CoC for reporting misconduct / misbehaviour,
I would not feel properly protected.

I suggest to have an email address of the CoC to reach out

Nulo,

I've heard about it the first time on your URL and I think it is correct
behaviour to escalate if a conflict is not being resolved.

However, I have to add that a public posting outside of this
mailinglist is probably not going to calm down the situation.

I can offer both you as well as mps the role of a mediator. Not in any
kind of official Alpine role, but as to resolve a conflict that is
related to work around Alpine.

I am reachable as 'telmich' in most IRC networks and @nico:ungleich.ch

Re: v3.15 builders bootstrapped 3 months ago

Yeaaaaaaha! Do we already have the custom of a virtual release party?

If yes, where & when does it happen?

If no, is anyone interested in having a virtual (video based?) hangout
to celebrate? Maybe cheering with a drink of your choice?

Best regards from Seoul airport,

Nico

Peter,

it's great to see you stepping up. Not only because it's great to see
upstream support, but also because of the great time I had with Bert.

We at ungleich also "only recently" (1-3 years ago?) embraced Alpine in
various setups and it's a decision I'd never take back. The folks are
fun, the operating system is easy to use and extend.

So in short: great to see you around!

Best regards,

That is such a beauty, thanks a lot Ariadne!

I am not sure if you can easily filter it, but when going to the package
in question (like https://security.alpinelinux.org/srcpkg/subversion),
one sees open and resolved CVEs.

What would be quite interesting to see is which Alpine version relates
to which CVEs, not only to which packages.

This could answer the question of "I am running Alpine
3.11, by which CVEs am I likely affected?"

Either case, this is a pretty good start, great work!

Re: [3.15] System change proposal: rename the Alpine 3.15 release to Alpine 15 9 months ago

Good morning,

I would like to strongly second Natanael's argument, because we are an
Open Source community that consists of and relies on many volunteers.

It is ok (and good) to be of a different opinion, but this should always
be expressed respectfully.

I'm looking back on 20 years of FOSS community work and I can say that
too long has the computer science / IT nerd / FOSS scene not taken this
seriously enough.

We shall disagree, we shall even fight about topics, but we must always
