Some things to keep me busy for the next few months.

  • PPswitch:
    • Modify activity graphs for the new scanner setup. Add SpamAssassin load tracking.
    • Do a public weekly spam filtering statistics news item. Break down stats per department, especially so that the Old Fools know how much junk their anti-spam appliance isn't seeing.
    • Push per-user filtering options out to SMTP time. Add per-domain filtering options for other University mail servers.
  • Exim:
    • Finish the TLS logging improvements and unit tests for the new ratelimit code, then roll a 4.70 release.
    • Implement greylisting, probably for 4.71.
    • Revamp the hints database layer so it can support concurrent updates (e.g. Berkeley DB row-level locking) and clustered databases (e.g. memcached), probably for 4.72. This will improve the retry, ratelimit, and greylisting databases.
  • FreeBSD:
    • Update factor(6) with bug fixes from NetBSD. (bug found when factorizing my phone number!)
    • Fix bugs and feature omissions in unifdef(1) reported by Ben Hutchings and Anders Kaseorg.

Is there a prize for deducing your phone number from "bug found when factorizing my phone number"?

The number is in fact public information, and not particularly hard to find :-)

I should note that there's a whole class of numbers which trigger this performance bug, and a different one from my phone number is mentioned in the NetBSD fix commit message.
