Dear community,

As a followup to my last posting regarding the new webserver for
netlabs.org: The URL was way too long and obviously just working on my
system :-)

The correct URL for donations can be found here:

SW: New home for CUPS port

2006-12-01
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

Just wanted to let people know that there is a new home for the OS/2 port
of CUPS (Common Unix Printing System). This is http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups

The site contains details on where we are headed with improving the
printing support in eComStation. To see what printers are potentially
supported, go to http://www.linuxprinting.org - printers mentioned as
working with CUPS or Gutenprint should be supported.

To support the project, it is really important to test out my cups build
that was announced earlier this week. The readme contains step by step
instructions on how to add a printer. Whilst this process is currently a
little cumbersome, this will be improved - what we need to do is to confirm
the basics are working and iron out any problems before building the
relevant frontends to beautify things.

Thanks,

Paul.

Net: netlabs.org will buy a new webserver :)

2006-12-02
++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Adrian Gschwend


Dear community,

A few days ago we sent out a request to gather money for a new webserver at
netlabs.org. The goal was to reach 2000 Euro as soon as possible to make
sure we can start to do the migration of the CMS the next weeks.

We couldn't believe it ourself but we had the 2000 Euro in less than 24
hours! This is for sure a great motivation for all of us, thanks a lot to
every single one who contributed!
We will most probably order the hardware next week and start the migration
shortly afterwards. We will keep you informed about the next steps!

In case you did want to contribute but you didn't had the chance now, don't
worry. You can still buy sponsoring units at Mensys which help us paying
the salaries for the programmers at netlabs.org, which is highly
appreciated as well. We try to make that more professional and transparent
in the next year, more about that as soon as the new pages are up and
running. Meanwhile you can sponsor us here:

http://www.mensys.net/Netlabs/
http://www.mensys.net/WarpVision/
http://www.mensys.net/Uniaud/

The money goes in any case to netlabs.org but like this you can still
sponsor a specific project if you like.

Both Uniaud and WarpVision should get some quality improvements the next
weeks, we work on a new build and release-management system for both
projects together with Christian Langanke so it will get easier to
contribute to any of the projects in the future.

Thanks a lot
