So, say there *was* a Linux kernel community manager. What would you want that person to do/be?
Still using RSA for OpenSSH authentication?
You should read: https://latacora.singles/2018/08/03/the-default-openssh.html
tl;dr: OpenSSH uses by default the md5 hash of your password to encrypt the id_rsa private key.
Good news, you can fix it by running this command (with -o it uses the improved key-format):
ssh-keygen -o -p -f ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Or even better, generate a new ed25519 key (they use the improved key-format by default):
ssh-keygen -t ed25519
Thanks @amenthes for pointing me to the article!
One of the most frequent questions we get is: Why doesn't Tusky support push notifications?
Because pushing to devices would require us to use proprietary Google libraries and to run a relay server. But we want Tusky to be pure FOSS (free and open-source software) and don't want to send any data to Google so we decided not to implement push notifications at this time. We are researching other possibilities to make notifications faster though.
