After a less active than usual week (dentist), I made a release last Friday. Unfortunately, it turns out that the Linux standalone builds in that release don't include the webapp. So, another release is planned tomorrow.
Yesterday and part of today I dug into
the windows ssh webapp password entry broken
reversion. Eventually cracked the problem; it seems that
different versions of ssh for Windows do different things in a
check, and there's a flag that can be passed when starting ssh to make it
not see a controlling tty. However, this neeeds changes to the
process library, which db48x and I have now coded up. So a fix for this bug
is waiting on a new release of that library. Oh well.
Rest of today was catching up on recent traffic, and improving the behavior
git annex fsck when there's a disk IO error while checksumming a file.
Now it'll detect a hardware fault exception, and take that to mean the file
is bad, and move it to the bad files directory, instead of just crashing.
I need better tooling to create disk IO errors on demand. Yanking disks out works, but is a blunt instrument. Anyone know of good tools for that?
