The FreeBSD port, net-im/mastodon, has been updated to the latest release, version 2.3.2.

Upstream's release notes:

Version 2.3.1 of the FreeBSD Mastodon port was just committed.

Seeing a problem with the upcoming Mastodon 2.3.x FreeBSD package. Sidekiq only wants to connect via IPv6, but this host only has an IPv4 address. Bug submitted and still digging.

@saper Thanks again for the Mastodon package debugging session. It's less lonely hunting these annoying issues alone.

I am running Mastodon 2.3.1rc1 via a local FreeBSD package. So far, so good.

I struggled with an issue packaging 2.3.0, so didn't get it out right away. Now, since it seems 2.3.1 will be released soon, I will wait for 2.3.1 and commit a 2.2.0 -> 2.3.1 update to the FreeBSD port/package.

We stared watching Star Trek Enterprise. Some episodes in season 1 are interesting. I like that it is different from NG, DS9, or Voyage, but what's up with the opening music? It sounds like a Nickelback song too cheesy to open 'The Wonder Years'.


I see you are using the omniauth-cas gem. I notice that GitLab uses Is one 'better' than the other? I really have no idea, but mention it because omniauth-cas3 is already packaged on some OSes instead of omniauth-cas .

Bell Canada to regulators:
We desperately need to be able to block websites without the annoying judicial oversight, otherwise our business is at stake.

Bell Canada to investors:
Business has never been better. means that each time 'assets:precompile' is run, files will have different names and contents. A wonky patch is required [1] for the port/package, but it would be useful if generate_manifest_path() could take a seed to make it (in part) reproducible.


I am now testing a local pacakge of 2.2.0rc2. So far, everything looks good for when 2.2.0 is released.

As always, thank you @Gargron and the rest of the Mastodon developers.

The false ballistic missile alert in Hawaii was a ridiculously bad mistake, but it was refreshing to see an official without such an enormous ego. He did not blame others, was open and took responsibility, and assured people problems would be corrected. Of course, it would be better if mistakes did not occur, but if they do, this response is a first step towards improvement.

...and after adding libreoffice to ALLOW_MAKE_JOBS_PACKAGES, 's package builder, poudriere, built editors/libreoffice in 17:30.

Ccache introduces higher variability in the compile times (can be as low as 15 minutes), but overall this setup has been effective.

With modest hardware and the right poudriere setup, the compile time for devel/llvm on can consistently be under one hour.

% cat poudriere.conf

The v2.1.3 port was just committed. Packages will be available soon.

Aside from the upgrade, an issue with pid file paths in the rc scripts was fixed.

The package has been updated to version 2.1.0. As usual, thanks to @Gargron and all the Mastodon developers.

@dvl Whatever you are doing with Freshports to hook in to svn is very responsive. After committing a new port, I immediately switched to the site and did a refresh and the new port was there. Did I just get lucky timing or is Freshports that fantastic?
