I have to troubleshoot a buggy relationship between a mail client (thunderbird) and an IMAP server (dovecot), regarding notification. That’s when the server informs the client about new mails, as opposed to the client polling the server to get this information. There’s this stackoverflow thread with some very useful exemple code. Unfortunately, it’s old, and […]

As usual when Django releases a new Alpha version, I’ve settled a new mirror. The URL (both web and clone) is https://hg.freehackers.org/mirrors/django-3.2-production As stated before, I no longer use bitbucket as they’ve dropped support for mercurial. Shame on them ! 🙂

As you are probably aware, bitbucket is dead. At least the original bitbucket as we knew it, the leader in mercurial hosting. They no longer host mercurial repositories, so I had to move my kernel and Django mirrors. They are now hosted on my own heptapod instance, at the following URL: https://hg.freehackers.org/ I did the […]

For the record, main purposes of this mirror are: being a lightweight read-only repository to clone from for production servers hide the ugly git stuff behind a great mercurial interface The clone is at the usual location at bitbucket, from which you can browse, clone, […]

It’s been a while since the last release of EmergeActivity. There were some fixes, but nothing really worth a release, so mostly everything was ok. Still, it was based on Qt4/PyQt4, and times passes, so I’ve finally found time to port EmergeActivity to Qt5. That and a few fixes/features seemed enough for me to increment the major number, hence […]
