We've mostly recovered from the bsd.network outage.
Looks like the last few actions before the server stopped responding were lost , but nothing else was.
The firehose is currently loading the Fediverse that happened. Toots and actions may arrive out of order.
Your normal Tooting schedule will resume at the toot.
I'm going to do an upgrade of the host the bsd.network instance is on. Estimating 30-60 min of downtime.
I just committed this to #OpenBSD -current:
Back in the history of time, IPv4 had classes of addresses. This was widely acknowledged as a failure. At the same time IPv4 classes were declared a
failure, #IPv6 decided to add
them back because using a mac address for IP address configuration was easy.
Now that we have RFC7217 support we can remove this artificial limitation: allow non-/64 prefixes to be configured by SLAAC.
This one fixes arm64: https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=151562684426478&w=2
Hey BSD folk. Looks like our good friend Peter Hansteen (@pitrh) is in the market. Now's a great time to hire a great guy, pf expert, mail guru and real Unix systems admin. https://twitter.com/akpoff/status/951215465879261186
