Jira server Firefox mobile

Make Jira server to deliver the mobile version when using Firefox Mobile.

My use case

I mostly receive Jira notifications by Email, read on my telephone.
When I want to comment the notification from my telephone, I usually choose Firefox Mobile.

Problem

Unfortunately (dunno if it has to do with fortune), Firefox Mobile is not a supported web browser, so that Atlassian has made the choice to deliver the desktop version if the client is the client browses with an unsupported browser.

Solution

I have an Apache reverse proxy in front of my Jira instance: I can force a Redirection to the mobile URL if I match the Firefox Mobile User-Agent.

    ...
    RewriteCond "%{HTTP_USER_AGENT}"   "^Mozilla\/[1-9]\.0 \(Android [1-9]\.0\.0; Mobile; rv:[1-9][1-9]\.0\) Gecko\/[1-9][1-9]\.0 Firefox\/[1-9][1-9]\.0$"
    RewriteRule   "^/browse/(.+)$"  "https://jira.rktmb.org/plugins/servlet/mobile#issue/$1"  [R,L,NE]
    RewriteRule   "^/browse/(.+)#add-comment$"  "https://jira.rktmb.org/plugins/servlet/mobile#issue/$1"  [R,L,NE]
    ...

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile
I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian.
But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation.

Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file.

Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write.
Here you are:

RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl=ftp://packages-infra.mg.rktmb.org/pub/centos/7/base-reposync-7 " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 " >>…

vmware net_device trans_start

VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7 When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:

/tmp/modconfig-xrrZGZ/vmnet-only/netif.c:468:7: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’; did you mean ‘mem_start’?     dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: http://rglinuxtech.com/?p=1746http://ferenc.homelinux.com/?p=356 I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.

- dev->trans_start = jiffies; + netif_trans_update(dev); I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives. 
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.


Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project. Default workflow for new projects I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup

This fea…
