Since you're already here and don't want to pass by, welcome to my webpage!

One may wonder what Pimentola is. Well, according to Kalevala, it is a very cold location somewhere in the far North. The word means something like a "region of darkness". That's why it is dark over there. You can check an article on Pohjola to learn a bit more.

Hope you're not afraid of cold and darkness.

Here is my monthly log covering what I have been doing for Debian in July 2019.

Salsa is Debian's collaborative development server based on the GitLab software. Debian migrated from previously used Alioth (FusionForge based) to Salsa in Jan 2018. I consider this migration as an improvement. Of course, there are still some developers who don't like Salsa. One of the reasons is too much clicking on buttons in its web-interface, where command line is more convenient. For those who don't like clicking buttons in a web-interface there is salsa, tool to manipulate salsa repositories and group members.

This tool, salsa, is a part of the prolific devscripts package. To use it one need a Salsa token, so one has to deal with Salsa's web-interface one more time. One needs to open Setting, and then Access Tokens. After that just pick a name for your brand-new Personal Access Token, choose its expire date, and choose its scope (for the most convenience one needs api scope, which grants complete read/write access to the API, including all groups and projects). Then just add SALSA_TOKEN=your_token to your .devscripts.

Wait. Is it secure to store such a powerful thing in a form of a plain text? Hmmm, well… If there's a way to keep it in a more secure place but without lots of inconvenience, then let's do it.

Save your Personal Access Token to a local file, say .salsa_key and encrypt it with gpg:

$ gpg --recipient <email_associated_with_your\gpg_key> --encrypt .salsa_key

Now you have plain text .salsa_key file and encrypted .salsa_key.gpg file. Then it is required to fix your .devscripts file. Remove your token from the line starting with SALSA_TOKEN= and change it to

SALSA_TOKEN=$(gpg --quiet --decrypt ~/.salsa_token.gpg)

After that just delete plain text .salsa_key file from your computer. Now your Personal Access Token is secured with your GPG key. Just try

$ salsa whoami

command, and good luck with your Debian contributions!
