๐Ÿ“Œ Formal Comments from the Department of Homeland Security Chief Information Officer ยท Issue #222 ยท WhiteHouse/source-code-policy

โ€œWhen managed appropriately, releasing code as OSS and engaging with the community can have extensive cybersecurity benefits. Security through obscurity is not true security: we cannot depend on vulnerabilities not being exploited just because they have not been discovered yet. There are many examples of widely-used pieces of software that benefit greatly from constant and vigorous community reviews and contributions to find bugs, and thus making them more secure. We look forward to government systems joining them.โ€ #

โ€œthe correct response to abuse is not more abuse. The correct response to abuse is patience, correction, explanation, and an outpouring of civilly-worded disapproval. These are expressions of love, whereby we try to improve our attacker so that we wonโ€™t need to attack each other any more.โ€ #

๐Ÿ“Œ Ksplice ยป Source diving for sysadmins - System administration and software blog

A nice outline for how open source code documentation might be organized. Iโ€™m less than convinced that there needs to be a โ€œstandard,โ€ but as a sort of conceptual framework for organizing docs this does a great job. #

๐Ÿ“Œ What happened to Hot Standby?

Itโ€™s decisions like this that make me confident and happy about my choice of PostgreSQL. I can barely wait for hot standby to land, but features are worthless if theyโ€™re not stable. Maintainers willing to make tough cuts like this one are what makes quality software. #
