[Howto] LDAP scheme for Postfix queries
Mentioned within the official Postfix documentation is the requirement for LDAP verification of address types that are not offered by default. To help you get started, we have uploaded a corresponding scheme on our credativ-Github account.
This Postfix LDAP 'howto' document describes an example of how Postfix can access LDAP to look up addresses or their aliases. Here, the 'howto' assumes that two attributes are defined in the LDAP scheme: mailacceptinggeneralid and maildrop. Postfix calls as mailacceptinggeneralid in src / global / dict_ldap.c on:

credativ has been working on the OpenERP charm for the new Juju platform, a tool from Ubuntu that helps you define, configure and deploy services to any cloud quickly and easily. In this Howto we explain the best way to run Juju on Debian.
Over the past few years, the useful life of desktop PCs has increased to the point where a machine built in 2008 still feels fast enough for most needs, especially when you run Linux on it. However, trying to run Juju the most recommended way (vagrant) on Debian recently hasn't been the best experience so far. The VM eats most of my RAM (the few bits not taken up by Iceweasel already) and takes ages to do the simplest of things.

The end of last month saw the first stable release of CoreOS; a contemporary Linux operating system geared towards efficient distributed computation. The design focuses on high availability and responsiveness of machine clusters in order to deliver a high-performance interface to an optimised cloud system. It achieves this through a highly compartmentalised architecture whose modular nature allows processes within the cluster to be dealt out to nodes based on their immediate availability. This paradigm maximises reliability in the eventuality that a node fails, in that the downed node's workload can be offloaded to the rest of the cloud. In this way, CoreOS streamlines operations in a robust and maintainable manner.

During a recent STEMNET event, 'career speed-dating' at my former stomping ground, Rugby High School for Girls, I was crushed by the lack of enthusiasm for IT. It's a grammar school boasting a strong emphasis on scientific disciplines, yet despite acknowledging that technology is relevant to today's world, the girls just don't associate that with the drudgery of their IT lessons. Whether this is a reflection of the curriculum, the way courses are structured, lack of connection to real-world scenarios, misconceptions about the IT industry - or a combination of all of these... the girls aren't interested.

Odoo: The Future of Business Management Systems
Odoo started its days as TinyERP, a system built on the same ideals as the subsequently named OpenERP and Odoo. An ideal of Open Source software providing business system solutions in a flexible and maintainable way. Its strength is drawn from the clear direction that Odoo as a company leads the project and over 20,000 community contributors. By the nature of Open Source Odoo is completely customisable, allowing the system to meet your needs, rather than you changing to meet the system's workflows.

The Debian LTS project has been progressing quickly. The Debian archive is already taking uploads for the new suite and there are mailing lists for announcements and communications. Regular support for Debian Squeeze ended on 31 May and the Squeeze LTS archive has already seen a couple of important uploads.

Tomorrow (4th June), I shall be attending what will now be the first Odoo Open Day, in Louvain-La-Neuve, Belgium.
Odoo (formally OpenERP) is one of the main projects credativ are involved in the UK, implementing, hosting, and supporting numerous instances to meet the varying business needs of our clients.
The event is the first under the new name, Odoo, and is just one month before the scheduled release of version 8. As such, I shall be investigating what the future holds for the swiftly expanding project, and what the re-branding means for customers, partners, and its place in the ever advancing adoption of Open Source software.
To those attending, I hope to see you there! To those not able to attend, watch this space for my follow up.
