Did the patch for this ever get incorporated into the official sources of do you still have to hunt it down and apply it yourself?

comment Setting up Git, Gitweb, Gitolite on a Fedora 19 Server - Getting a '404 - No project found' message
Your problem is actually with Gitweb, right? Can you make your question more concise? At the very least, put your actual question first and follow it with the other details of how you set your server up.

comment Are there any TLD registrars that support dnscurve?
DJB has not released a new version of djbdns with DNSCurve support. 3rd parties have released patches for dnscache and a forwarder for tinydns.

comment DNS server with easiest GUI
I downvoted your answer because you're recommending software that: 1) needs patches for security vulnerabilities out of the box (which you're apparently not aware of, since you didn't mention them) 2) Does not support DNSSEC.

comment DNS responses from ISP are slower and slower, solution?
-1 for djbdns - it has security problems out of the box (Check the CVE database) and it doesn't do DNSSEC.

comment How should one manager external and internal DNS servers at the same time?
I no longer recommend djbdns. It doesn't do DNSSEC, and it has security problems out of the box (go check the CVE database).

No DNSSEC. The security is not as good as folks claim, either, go check the CVE entries.

comment in house DNS server
Nobody should be using djbdns nowadays. It doesn't do DNSSEC. Not to mention, it has three CVE listings against it, only one of which there is a really good easy fix for.

I don't see how the domain in the forged envelope From being configured with a catch all speeds up a spam run.

comment Stop spoof emails in Google Apps
SPF isn't going to do anything in this case - ferris.edu is hosted with Google Apps and Google does not refuse mail based on SPF failures, even hardfail. Why Google is doing-accept-then-bounce on an unknown user instead of just rejecting with a 5XX is the real question here.

comment trying to debug slow remote mysql server issues
What version of MySQL are you using? Are you connecting via a unix domain socket or a TCP socket to the local database? Try 'mysql --protocol=TCP', that should force TCP. See if that changes your timings.

comment trying to debug slow remote mysql server issues
Are you the only user of the database on the remote server? If not, try seeing how busy it is (show processlist). If you've got shell access, check the load averages via top, too, to see what else is going on while you're running your queries.
