We encourage all data users to contribute to the data gathering process so that our data can be as comprehensive as possible. The MetaBrainz Foundation believes in transparent finances and has several commercial supporters who pay for timely and convenient access to data. The MetaBrainz Foundation is also supported by a number of sponsors who provide funds in order for the foundation to accomplish its goals.

FLOSS Weekly 408: Interactive Fiction  

Interactive fiction was one of the first genres to emerge in computer gaming. It remains a driving force and a leading edge for the broad, ever-developing spectrum of digital games. Today, interactive fiction presents a medium uniquely suited to experimenters and artists. IF can be written without a budget, without a publisher, without a team of artists or programmers. Since the 1990s it has been supported entirely by hobbyists, open-source projects, and informal associations of enthusiasts. It is the purpose of IFTF to offer organized support to these many passion-driven projects, helping to ensure the survival and growth of interactive fiction while maintaining the unique advantages of this medium.

FLOSS Weekly 407: Linux Presentation Day  

At the end of 2014, the Berlin Linux User Group (BeLUG) developed a concept for a joint Linux event which aims at interested people who do not know Linux yet and especially at the (non-IT) media. This event can be organized with very little effort i.e. by small groups without a budget, too. The first event of this kind was in Berlin in May 2015 at eight locations (each run by another organization).

The second Linux Presentation Day (LPD 2015.2) was on November, 14th 2015 but this time not limited to Berlin but in 72 cities in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland (more than 1,500 visitors). The LPD 2016.1 was on April, 30th 2016 in more than 110 cities in 10 countries.

These can be used as-is, tweaked to your needs, or serve as examples of how to use the API.

FLOSS Weekly 403: Atomic Host  

Project Atomic is an umbrella for many projects related to re-designing the operating system around principles of immutable infrastructure, using the LDK (Linux, Docker, Kubernetes) stack. Many of the components of Project Atomic are upstream components of OpenShift Origin v3. The primary building block of Project Atomic is the Atomic Host, a lightweight container OS which implements these ideas. Atomic Hosts are immutable since each is imaged from an upstream repository, supporting mass deployment. Applications run in containers. Atomic Host versions based on CentOS and Fedora are available, and there is also a downstream enterprise version in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

FLOSS Weekly 398: ClusterHQ  

At ClusterHQ, we describe ourselves as The Container Data People™. We believe that support for databases and other stateful services across the entire application life-cycle is a major missing piece of the puzzle for containers and Docker. Without the ability to easily and securely create and share copies of production data, development teams can't fully test their applications before moving to production. Without support for data migration, high availability and disaster recovery, containers can't easily capture the entire application (including databases, queues, and key-value stores) in production in a way that ops can manage. Why should the heart of most applications live outside the container?

FLOSS Weekly 397: CoreOS Update  

Operations teams currently spend their days fighting fires, critical updates, machine failures, networking outages; instead of moving their infrastructure forward. The CoreOS team wants to enable companies to run their applications securely and reliably in any environment. We hope to dramatically improve the security of “the stack” while making advancements in modern server infrastructure
