Hi folk,

Masterlist updated with one new issue, bringing us to a total of eight unclaimed issues. Of these, two are adding sites to the embed whitelist (for which we have a wiki page!), one is adding another site to the <user name=""> tag (which I've touched extensively recently and would be delighted to help with); and then there's some site text that needs tweaking, and a few bits of CSS that could use some love.

I'd be more than happy to provide encouragement on any of these, and can actively help out with site text, the user name tag, and whitelisting embeds :-)

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay, there was a most unfortunate timing as I was in Europe without Internet access. Anyway, the Dreamhack server is back up and running so you should be able to log in and such.

I'll also be making sure that at least [personal profile] alierak has access to the control panel so this kind of thing won't be a single point of failure on me in the future.

Today I found out that open source community member, feminist, activist, and fucking awesome human being Nóirín Plunkett has died. I have no words for what we've lost in losing Nóirín; I think the open source community is going to keep running headfirst into that loss for years to come.

Nóirín, wherever you are now, I hope it's full of everything you would consider paradise. It's going to be a long fucking time before I stop looking for you at every conference I go to.

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

The dreamhack machine is not responding to SSH requests. [personal profile] sophie is aware of the issue but says that [staff profile] mark is the only one with the necessary access to administer the machine, and he is currently unavailable. We'll get things fixed up as soon as we can!
