  • Docker is deleting Open Source organisations — Yesterday, Docker sent an email to any Docker Hub user who had created an "organisation", telling them their account will be deleted including all images, if they do not upgrade to a paid team plan. The email contained a link to a tersely written PDF (since, silently edited) which was missing many important details which caused significant anxiety and additional work for open source maintainers.

  • Podman issue pulling from local registry
  • /etc/subuid and /etc/subgid configuration — Rootless Podman requires the user running it to have a range of UIDs listed in the files /etc/subuid and /etc/subgid.
  • Using volumes with Podman — If your container runs with the root user, then root in the container is actually your user on the host. UID/GID 1 is the first UID/GID specified in your user's mapping in /etc/subuid and /etc/subgid, etc. If you mount a directory from the host into a container as a rootless user, and create a file in that directory as root in the container, you'll see it's actually owned by your user on the host.

  • Remove not supported column comments for SQLite - Nextcloud — Some times column comments are used, e.g. to make clear an integer is used as a timestamp. For SQLite column comments are not supported and migration that use column comments will not work (see linked comment above for an example). Somehow it works when you have a clean install, then all migrations pass, but when executing single migrations they will fail.
  • Updating to 3.2.0 fails on SQLite installations · Nextcloud
  • Command Line Shell For SQLite — Like the ".dump" command, ".recover" attempts to convert the entire contents of a database file to text.
