Mailing List discussions

Policy decisions surrounding HPR are taken by the community as a whole. This discussion takes place on the Mail List which is open to all HPR listeners and contributors. The discussions are open and available on the HPR server under Mailman.

Git repository for HPR development

For security reasons the Gitea service running on requires people to log in with an account to view the repositories.

Is this acceptable or do we need to move the code to another location?

Older HPR shows on, phase 2

Now that all shows from number 1 to the latest have been uploaded to the Internet Archive there are other tasks to perform. We are reprocessing and re-uploading shows in the range 871 to 2429 as explained in the Community News show notes released in May 2022. We are keeping a running total here to show progress:

Good show - I made it to the end

Thanks for another great community show. I did make it to the end, although I admit to downloading and listening to the show at 2x after the mailing list discussion was started. BTW, Ken, I do not skip your shows. ;-)

Comment #2 posted on 2022-09-05 13:43:21 by ClaudioM

Another One Made It to the End!

Add me to the list with archer72 making it to the end. Great show. Not as fast as archer72, but I do listen at 1.5x speed. I always look forward to Ken over-enthusiastically shouting, "Raaaadiooooo!!!!" at the end of the Community Show. It's worth listening to all of it. :-D

A11y and abbreviations

Congratulations on spending longer talking about accessibility than every other Linux podcast put together, ever. I've given up trying to get podcasts like 'Destination Linux' to include a11y comments when they review a distro. All I ever want to know is whether I can install it unassisted. After, none of you photon-dependent types would give house room to a distro if you had to run round looking for a blind person to install it for you.

And now a word about abbreviations. The abbreviation 'a11y' is similar to 'i18n' (internationalization). Replace the centre letters with the number of letters removed, and leave just the first and last letter. And 'a11y' is pronounced 'a eleven y', not 'ally'.

Exception to this is 'k8s', a common abbreviation for Kubernetes, which a lot of folks pronounce as 'kates'.

I will see if there is a way of recording a show and including the audio from my screen reader, in order to demo some of what we have to cope with. If the sound of the screen reader would not drive the whole audience into madness.

I made it !

I made it to the end! much better then trying to figure out API for Reolink so I don't have to install there "app"

Comment #5 posted on 2022-09-06 10:50:39 by folky

Did make it too


I did make it too to the end of the show. No problem, only about 2 hours, that's nothing ;-) I think I have to state once more my stance in the Linux Inlaws-question. Yes, I don't like the show, but that's not why I agree with all thinking that they should take the step over to It's just that they overstayed their upstart-time on HPR. I wish them all good and maybe we should give them a last help by adding a link to their own rss-feed (as soon as it's up) on all shows they had here to make it easier for their listeners to find them.

the show

Great show as always. The table of shows in the show notes is useful. Thanks

Public access to HPR site Generator

Required Auth for code contributions in understandable.

It would be easier to automate site builds if there were an unauthenticated option for checking out the code. I like Rhon's suggestion of a public git mirror. Another option is to create a daily archive of the code that can be download from the HPR site - Similar to the sql dumps.

Comment #8 posted on 2022-09-06 19:13:29 by Miguel

I made it!!

Yes! I made it to the end.

It's quite a good episode

Sorry for the inlaws.

But it made for a very interesting conversation.

I've been thinking about subjects for a show, but I feel stuck with the fact that a i live with limited resources.

May you bee interested in tech stories from the third world?

Made It

Made it to the end. You underestimate my ability to listen to people for long periods of time
