For those who follow me on Twitter it's probably no surprise: I'm pretty active there. I enjoy the interactions, the platform for sharing links and for keeping me up-to-date on technical news. To help with the latter, I built 2 twitter bots that keep me informed about open source announcements & security vulnerabilities.
Both are built on top of the data aggregation that's happening in MARC, the mailing list archive.
If you're into Twitter, you can follow these accounts:
- @oss_announce: new announcements from RHEL, Debian, Ubuntu, pfSense, Puppet, Ansible, ... pretty much every major open source project is included.
- @foss_security: a combination of oss-security, drupal-security, redhat-security, ... and many more.
If I'm missing any news sources, let me know.
For the last one, @foss_security , I even enabled push notifications. Several 0days have already been disclosed there (including the latest remote code execution vulnerability in git) so I find it worth keeping an eye out on that one.
I'm not planning on making RSS feeds for those, as the current implementation was a really quick 30-minute hack on top of MARC that easily allowed me to send tweets using the Twitter API .
No spam, no advertising, no bullshit: just the content on both accounts.
 There's also an existing account, called @oss_security (mine is named @foss_security, with an extra 'f'), but that one only pipes everything from the oss-security mailing list to Twitter, including replies and discussions, no other data sources.
