two (conflicting) sources for same repo if it has a branch suffix 2 months ago

From to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

this build: https://builds.sr.ht/~raingloom/job/1212401
triggered by this commit:
https://git.sr.ht/~raingloom/thesis/commit/868582e02a68601383583df11bb9322b4383d330
has two sources on the CI, which results in two clones, which obviously
fails, because the directory already exists.

If there is no branch suffix, the problem seems to disappear:
https://builds.sr.ht/~raingloom/job/1212409

Is this a bug?  It definitely seems like one, but I'd like to make sure.

Near/post-collapse networking 1 year, 6 months ago

From Csepp to ~vdupras/duskos-discuss

(disclaimer: apoligies if I've already talked about this, I tried to find
any previous messages about NDN, but couldn't.)

There are a lot of mentions in the RFBitBanger thread about WiFi and
other current wireless networking protocols, which got me thinking about
content centric networking again and I'd like to ask what others who
know more about this topic think of its suitability for a post-collapse
(or at least near-collapse) scenario.

This is the main implementation of these ideas that I know of:
https://named-data.net/

The TLDR version is: instead of overlaying an end-to-end network on a
broadcast medium why not refer to the name of the data you want.

Wouldn't an iterator object with a "next" and a "done?" method make
sense?  Or is there some memory management complication that isn't
obvious at first glance that might require some sort of optional
finalizer?

CI can't clone pmaports fork: error reading section header 1 year, 11 months ago

From Csepp to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hi all!

I ran into the following error while trying to cross compile some custom
Alpine package using a fork of pmaports:

```
fatal: error reading section header 'shallow-info'
```

Here is one of the CI jobs:
https://builds.sr.ht/~raingloom/job/815216

The repo is not private, but I added my git.sr.ht key just in case,
unsurprisingly it did not fix the issue.
