infra status update

Hello,

our team has worked all night long to bring most VMs back online, 
including the main website. Some, like AskBot, are still down. We are 
working on restoring those services as well, but it might take a bit longer.

Sorry for the inconveniences,
Florian

network issues

Hello,

we are currently suffering from a network issue between the three VM 
hosts - Alex is working on it with other members of our admin team. 
Sorry for the issues, keep you posted about details and how to avoid 
this in the future later.

Florian

AskBot without third-party logon provider

Hello,

good news: It's now possible to use AskBot without third-party logon 
provider, Evgeny enabled that feature for us. In other words: User can 
register using an e-mail address from now on, without the need for a 
third-party service.

Thanks a lot, Evgeny!

2014 annual report

Hello,

within the next couple of days, I will start the selection of content 
for our annual report, which - for the first time - will be published in 
English and German in parallel, and be shorter than the previous one, to 
have an easy-to-handout document for events, tradeshows and marketing 
purposes.

To have enough time to work on both versions in parallel, I have to 
close down the data collection rather soon, but no later than 
immediately after FOSDEM.

So, in case there's something exciting you want to share from your 2014 
projects, please don't hesitate to add some keywords or even complete 
paragraphs to

	http://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/annualreport

After I have started collecting information, it will be much harder, if 
not impossible, to fit new items in. Submissions in English, French and 
German are possible.

Any help is very much welcome - help us show our community, supporters 
and donors what we have done and achieved!

Thanks a lot for your help!
Florian

two notes on Redmine

Hello,

I just wanted to share two notes on Redmine:

(1) When replying to a ticket via e-mail, please ensure to use the 
e-mail address associated with your account. Otherwise, to prevent spam, 
messages will be silently discarded.

(2) Note that ONLY the ticketing is supported officially for the 
individual projects. Please do NOT enable other features (discussions, 
files, wiki etc.) without talking to the infra team. For those projects 
already having them enabled, we won't disable them, but I'd like to 
provision for the future. ;-) Rationale is that we don't want to end up 
with five wikis and seven forums per project, spread across a dozen of 
tools.

Besides that - happy to answer questions on Redmine, ideally personally 
on FOSDEM. ;-)

Florian

QA laptop at FOSDEM

Hello,

Florian Reisinger has no use anymore for the TDF QA laptop. The battery 
was broken as well, and I'm now waiting for the repair to ship to my place.

Before I just put it in the office and wait for some sensible use - is 
there anyone who can make use of a

	Acer TravelMate P253-E-B9604G50Mnks 39,6 cm (15,6 Zoll non Glare) 
Notebook (Intel Pentium B960, 2,2GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Intel HD, DVD, 
without operating system)

preferably for QA reasons, as it was paid for by this budget? Note the 
device has a German (QWERTZ) keyboard layout.

I am not sure if it arrives in time, but if so, I could try handing it 
over at FOSDEM. It will stay TDF-owned, but can be borrowed to anyone 
who can make a good use of it for TDF purposes.

Florian

IMPORTANT Certification Application

Unfortunately, because of a bug in the Certification Application form
(http://www.documentfoundation.org/certification/application/), if you
have applied during the first three weeks of December the Certification
Committee might have not received your data. If you have not received a
message accepting or rejecting your application, you should re-apply as
soon as possible (within January 15) to be reviewed during the session
at FOSDEM in Brussels.

Please do note that you must send any requested documents by email, as
the bug was related to the presence of attachments in the application form.

As I am coordinating the Certification Project, I personally apologize
for the inconvenience.

In early 2015, there will be a review session at FOSDEM in Brussels, on
January 31 and February 2nd, which will be a good opportunity to meet
the entire community (and especially developers).

As you probably know LibreOffice Certification will be open only to TDF
Members until April 2015. This is an opportunity, you are invited to
take advantage of.

For more information on the LibreOffice Certification Project, you can
access the website: http://www.documentfoundation.org/certification.

If you have any doubt about your application, or need a clarification on
the subject of certification, do not hesitate to ask by email to
certification <at> libreoffice.org.

Thanks, Italo
