Subject: [openwall-announce] blists 1.0; kernel-hardening list


This is to announce two items at once:

1. We've just released version 1.0 of blists, our web interface to
mailing list archives that works off indexed mbox files.  Please feel
free to use it for your own mailing lists.

There are two programs: bindex and bit.  bindex generates or updates the
index file (yes, incremental updates are supported).  bit is a CGI/SSI
program that generates web pages on the fly.  Both programs are written
in C and are very fast.

To see blists in action, check out our Open Source and information
security mailing list archives:

2. We've setup a new mailing list, kernel-hardening.  The intent is to
use it to discuss proposed security hardening changes to the Linux
kernel before possibly bringing them to LKML, as well as to CC it on
relevant LKML threads.  It is also OK to discuss hardening changes that
are not meant for upstream.  Announcement posted to oss-security:

referencing work that has already started:
