“Removal of powerpc as a release architecture”

Release architectures for Stretch will be as follows:

* amd64
* arm64
* armel
* armhf
* i386
* mips
* mips64el
* mipsel
* ppc64el
* s390x

The only change from Jessie is the removal of powerpc as a release
architecture. We discussed this at length, and eventually took
the view that the least disservice to users of that port is to provide
reasonable notice of its discontinuation. We recognise and acknowledge
that discontinuing any port is unavoidably disruptive.

The question of whether powerpc remains an architecture in the main archive
or moves to ports is one for FTP masters, not the release team.

For the release team:

Joomla websites attacked en masse using recently patched exploits

Attackers are aggressively attacking Joomla-based websites by exploiting two critical vulnerabilities patched last week.
The flaws allow the creation of accounts with elevated privileges on websites built with the popular Joomla content management system, even if account registration is disabled. They were patched in Joomla 3.6.4, released Tuesday.
Hackers didn’t waste any time reverse engineering the patches to understand how the two vulnerabilities can be exploited to compromise websites, according to researchers from Web security firm Sucuri.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Dear Matt Mullenweg: An Open Letter from Wix.com’s CEO Avishai Abrahami

Dear Matt,
We were all very surprised by your post, as you have so many claims against us.
Wow, dude I did not even know we were fighting.
First you say we have been taking from the open source community without giving back, well, of course that isn’t true. Here is a list of 224 projects on our public GitHub page, and as you can see they are all dated before your post. We have not checked if WordPress is using them, but you are more than welcome to do so, some of them are pretty good.
We always shared and admired your commitment to give back, which is exactly why we have those 224 open source projects, and thousands more bugs/improvements available to the open source community and we will release the app you saw as well.
Next you talk about the Wix App being stolen from WordPress. There are more than 3
