Debian should not have adopted it for at least a few more years; they’re supposed to be the slow, steady, and stable distro. Their quick move to systemd hurt a lot of feelings and caused half their team to leave for Devuan. That shouldn’t happen. If your team is that fiercely split on an issue, the correct response it to leave the status quo alone until cooler heads prevail. Debian lost a lot of their reputation for stability because of this.

Packages under development aren't always ready to be in the main Debian archive. But that doesn't mean it should be hard for people to install them. When asking people to test programs, it is most convenient to present it in the way they are expecting: as a package. For this, a personal repository is useful. The tools for doing this are available in Debian, but the method is not well documented. This article attempts to do that.

Sysdig is open source, system-level exploration: capture system state and activity from a running Linux instance, then save, filter and analyze. Think of it as strace + tcpdump + lsof + awesome sauce.

With a little Lua cherry on top.

GLPI is the Information Resource-Manager with an additional Administration- Interface. You can use it to build up a database with an inventory for your company (computer, software, printers...).

Fabric is a Python (2.5 or higher) library and command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks.

It provides a basic suite of operations for executing local or remote shell commands (normally or via sudo) and uploading/downloading files, as well as auxiliary functionality such as prompting the running user for input, or aborting execution.

Typical use involves creating a Python module containing one or more functions, then executing them via the fab command-line tool.

Revisor enables you to customize and compose your own Fedora based installation and live media. It does so by presenting you a GUI with all options you can click your way through, a command-line interface and extended configuration files for more advanced users. Features that Revisor has vary from customizing the packages available during the installation and/or installed on the live media, to fully customizing the desktop environment for the live media.
