AWS 推出 Amazon Elastic Container Registry Public (公開版的 ECR)

算是延伸產品線,把 Amazon ECR 變成可以公開使用:「Amazon Elastic Container Registry Public: A New Public Container Registry」。

這篇稍微有趣的地方是,文章裡面的上面這張圖有把 path 模糊化,但下面那張沒有遮,後面的文字也直接有提到 path (這是要給使用者玩的...):

ECR Public 會自動同步到兩個 region,但設定的頁面上好像沒寫會怎麼挑... 另外前面會放 CloudFront 加速。

ECR Public automatically replicates container images across two AWS Regions to reduce download times and improve availability. Therefore, using public images directly from ECR Public may simplify your build process if you were previously creating and managing local copies. ECR Public caches image layers in Amazon CloudFront, to improve pull performance for a global audience, especially for popular images.

費用的部份,意外的有提供一些免費的空間與頻寬可以用,算是在推廣嗎?

ICANN 否決 .org 與 .ngo 的交易

ICANN 否決了 .org.ngo 網域控制權的交易:「ICANN Board Withholds Consent for a Change of Control of the Public Interest Registry (PIR)」。

Today, the ICANN Board made the decision to reject the proposed change of control and entity conversion request that Public Interest Registry (PIR) submitted to ICANN.

事情主要是起於 PIR (Public Interest Registry) 在 2019/11/13 宣佈他們的母單位 ISOC (Internet Society) 將被 Ethos Capital 併購,而這包含了 .org.ngo 網域的資產,這也代表了由 PIR 控制的網域會從非營利單位移到營利單位下 (總共有七個網域,其中最重要的是 .org,有超過一千萬個網域在上面),於是引發許多人的關注:

On 13 November 2019, PIR announced that ISOC, its parent organization, had reached an agreement with Ethos Capital, under which Ethos Capital would acquire PIR and all of its assets from ISOC. Under the agreement, PIR would also be converted from a Pennsylvania not-for-profit corporation to a for-profit Pennsylvania limited liability company. ISOC created and agreed to the transaction details that are under review.

而在隔天 2019/11/14,PIR 依照規定向 ICANN 送出「Notice of Indirect Change of Control and Entity Conversion」申請,依照規定,ICANN 需要在 2020/05/04 前批准或是否決,也就是這幾天就要做出決定。

而 ICANN 昨天宣佈了否決這項提案,暫時搞定了這件事情... 接下來看 Ethos Capital 會不會有什麼反擊 (上訴或是上法院)。

GitHub 推出 Package Registry

GitHub 推出了「GitHub Package Registry」,可以代管自己開發的軟體。

目前支援 npm (Node.js)、DockerMaven (Java)、NuGet (.NET)、RubyGems (Ruby) 五個平台,

隔壁 GitLab 說我們早就有了而氣噗噗中:「Packaging now standard, dependency proxy next?」。

Anyway,省下一些事情,以前會透過 CI/CD 丟到像是 packagecloud.io 這樣的服務上讓內部使用,現在看起來 GitHub 上面可以解決一些簡單的情境...
