Linux 5.13 Reverts and Fixes Problematic University of Minnesota Patches

An anonymous reader shares a report: One month ago the University of Minnesota was banned from contributing to the Linux kernel when it was revealed the university researchers were trying to intentionally submit bugs into the kernel via new patches as “hypocrite commits” as part of a questionable research paper. Linux kernel developers have finally finished reviewing all UMN.edu patches to address problematic merges to the kernel and also cleaning up / fixing their questionable patches. Sent in on Thursday by Greg Kroah-Hartman was char/misc fixes for 5.13-rc3. While char/misc fixes at this mid-stage of the kernel cycle tend to not be too exciting, this pull request has the changes for addressing the patches from University of Minnesota researchers. […] Going by the umn.edu Git activity that puts 37 patches as having been reverted with this pull request. The reverts span from ALSA to the media subsystem, networking, and other

In all the years I’ve been online and been a developer of outliners, I have never participated in a discussion of the design of outliners, from a UX standpoint. This seems to be happening on Twitter now. I’m going to keep readers of the blog in the loop. Latest question — what to do when the user presses the Return key. Here’s how LO2 does it. If the cursor headline has expanded subs, then the new headline is the new first sub. If the cursor head has no subs or they aren’t expanded, it is the next sibling. It doesn’t matter which mode you’re in, structure or text, the behavior is the same. The Return key is too important to have multiple meanings. It always creates a new headline. BTW, LO2 works the same way ThinkTank, MORE, Ready, Frontier, the OPML Editor all work(ed). Once we had these questions sorted

Pro Bono Net and Legal Aid Groups Partner To Launch Eviction Resource For N.Y. Tenants

At a time when many are predicting a tsunami of eviction cases resulting from the pandemic, the organization Pro Bono Net, in collaboration with several legal aid organizations, has launched TenantHelpNY.org, an online resource designed to help tenants in New York understand their housing rights.
The new site provides resources to help tenants understand their legal rights and connect with volunteer attorneys to obtain legal assistance.
The site also has an Advocate Gateway to provide pro bono attorneys with access to training and advocacy materials, networking with other advocates, and information on pro bono opportunities.
Development of the site was funded by grants provided to six legal aid agencies under the COVID-19 Tenant Legal Assistance Initiative launched last year by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
The six grantees that participated in development of this site are: Erie County Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project, Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York, Legal Aid Society of Northeastern

No Man’s Sky confirms Mass Effect crossover, adds iconic Normandy SR-1 to fleet

Joker appears to have jumped halfway across the galaxy and hit a target the size of a pinhead. That target happens to be an entirely different video game: No Man’s Sky! [credit:

We at Ars Technica love crossover events in every pop-culture format, but they’re arguably the best in video games, since they let fans settle playground arguments regarding which superhero or mascot could win in a fight. Still, that affection doesn’t mean Ars must keep up with every single “dream” announcement about third-party characters in games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Soulcalibur VI, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11, Samurai Shodown, Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid, and so on. We love them! Bring them on! But most IP crossovers don’t warrant a headline. (Sorry, John “two games in one year” Rambo.)
In today’s case, I’ve made an exception.

SUSE IPO Disappoints

An anonymous reader quotes a report from ZDNet: Swedish private equity firm EQT had high hopes for its SUSE IPO on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and set the European Linux and cloud power’s IPO price at 30 euros per share. Alas, SUSE’s shares opened at 29.50 euros per share. By the close of business on May 20th, the stock crept up to 30.39 euros. This gave it a market cap of around 5 billion euros (approximately $6.1 billion). This is nothing to sneeze at, but it wasn’t what EQT hoped for either. Before the IPO, EQT had sought an IPO price as high as 34 euros per share. Still, this was no failure. SUSE and its backers sold 37.8 million shares in the IPO, for 1.1 billion euros. EQT is still keeping a stake. SUSE itself continues to do well with reported revenue of $503 million for the 2020 financial
