=== Oliver Grawert: Patching u-boot for use in an Ubuntu Core gadget snap ===
On the second post from the series on Building u-boot gadget snap packages from source, Oliver Grawert takes a closer look at the uboot.patch file that comes with the default board configuration for building the u-boot binaries. Expanding about the morale behind its design, Oliver goes onto pointing out its shortcomings and suggests a more generic method to get all the boards working in the snapd environment.
=== Ted Gould: Replacing Docker Hub and Github with Gitlab ===
Ted Gould teaches readers how to replace Docker Hub and GitHub with GitLab by creating a branch on GitHub and adding an automated build to Docker Hub.

He dwells on the aspect of LXD having unprivileged containers by default and the limited size of the default map thereof. Stephane posts solutions and workarounds for this issue, coming up with neat and intuitive set of code, with proper outputs for reference.

"It's Season Ten Episode Fifteen of the Ubuntu Podcast! Alan Pope, Mark Johnson, Martin Wimpress and Joey Sneddon are connected and speaking to your brain.
This week Alan and Martin go flashing. We discuss Firefox multi-process, Minecraft now has cross platform multiplayer, the GPL is being tested in court and binary blobs in hardware are probably a bad thing."
