Taiga, a new open source project management tool with focus on usability (Opensource.com)
Opensource.com takes a look at the Taiga project management tool. "It started with the team at Kaleidos, a Madrid-based company that builds software for both large corporations and startups. Though much of their time is spent working for clients, several times a year they break off for their own Personal Innovation Weeks (ΠWEEK). These are weeklong hack-a-thons dedicated to personal improvement and prototyping internal ideas of all sorts. While there, they unanimously decided to solve the biggest of their own problems: project management.
Taiga was born, and by early 2014, the team at Kaleidos was already using Taiga for all their internal projects. Taiga Agile, LLC was formed in February 2014 to give the project a formal structure, and the source code was made available at GitHub."

openSUSE Factory and Tumbleweed to merge
The openSUSE project has announced that the "Factory" and "Tumbleweed" distributions will merge into a single rolling distribution (called "Tumbleweed"). There is also an FAQ posting about the merger. "With the vast improvements to the Factory development process over the last 2 years, we effectively found ourselves as a project with not one, but two rolling release distributions in addition to our main regular release distribution. GregKH signalled his intention to stop maintaining Tumbleweed as a 'rolling-released based on the current release'. It seemed a natural decision then to bring both the Factory rolling release and Tumbleweed rolling release together, so we can consolidate our efforts and make openSUSE's single rolling release as stable and effective as possible."
Garrett: Linux Container Security
Matthew Garrett considers the security of Linux containers on his blog. While the attack surface of containers is likely to always be larger than that of hypervisors, that difference may not matter in practice, but it's going to take some work to get there: I suspect containers can be made sufficiently secure that the attack surface size doesn't matter. But who's going to do that work? As mentioned, modern container deployment tools make use of a number of kernel security features. But there's been something of a dearth of contributions from the companies who sell container-based services. Meaningful work here would include things like: Strong auditing and aggressive fuzzing of containers under realistic configurations Support for meaningful nesting of Linux Security Modules in namespaces Introspection of container state and (more difficult) the host OS itself in order to identify compromises These aren't easy jobs, but they're important, and I'm hoping that the lack of obvious development in areas like this is merely a symptom of the youth of the technology rather than a lack of meaningful desire to make things better. But until things improve, it's going to be far too easy to write containers off as a "convenient, cheap, secure: choose two" tradeoff. That's not a winning strategy.
