» Updated website

As announced quite some time ago, I now maintain my packages in the Packman repository and the openSUSE Build Service. I finally decided to reflect that on my website. I guess an era has passed... ;) The nice thing is that nowadays, a lot more packagers are active in the community. The Build Service has greatly facilitated that by lowering the barrier in terms of local infrastructure (you need none, except a command-line script if you prefer CLI to the nice web interface). A few folks at Packman (including me) developed a nice, lean build server of our own, that is less capable than the almighty openSUSE Build Service but is more lightweight (as we currently only have a single server to build on). A few but valuable people have also joined the Packman team and taken over the maintenance of a few of my packages, which gives me a little more time to spend on other things (such as FOSDEM, the openSUSE Board or the Software Portal) -- I still need 72 hour days though ;)

Thanks for explanations Pascal, and thanks for good job you did. Hope to see you more active on your blog with some tricks explanations and links to useful software.

I used to download the two packages, di and cpuid from your repository. Now, it seems that Packman is not maintaining these 2 packages. Any idea where I can find these 2 rather useful packages?

Alpine, a descendant of Pine has just been released by Washington University:

Now it's under Apache license.

Keith, I moved cpuid and di to the openSUSE Build Service just now.

As there aren't any repositories they'd fit into as of now, I've added them here:
