The package is not on github, because I operate my own git server since some time and can not really part with it. The repositories URL is "git://".

Why do you want to rewrite linux-pax-flags? I started in bash and came to the conclusion, that integrating advanced features (like configuration overrides, e.g.) is way to painful with shellscripting. (I thought about using Python for a rewrite, but learning the language not really fascinated me, so I used Ruby.)

I thought of at least seperating the PKGBUILD from the code in the near future. The idea of a website for collecting flags is very good, but I do not think, we need it right now, because there were not that many flag reportings, yet.

An Hardened Arch Linux project or community would be a good starting point for raising our efforts, I think.

Do we maybe want to discuss this further in the bbs?

Is this package on GitHub or something? I would like to rewrite the front end in Bash. However, I don't want to maintain my own list of programs and the pax-flags they need; nor would it be a good idea for me to do that.

You know what I think would be really cool. Is if I like made a website all about hosting a repository of .conf files for PaX flags. Like make it easy for people to upload new flags and comment on flags... maybe email up-stream notifying them of improper memory usage, so someone can fix it upstream.... I need flesh out that idea.

Then end result is that anyone on any distro could write the equivalent of your linux-pax-flags program and/or modify their package manager to auto-set pax-flags.

Better config for adb.

/usr/lib/kde4/libexec/kscreenlocker_greet needs MPROTECT off, otherwise KDE freezes when resuming from sleep.
