Monthly update: November 2021

by Hostmaster

Consolidating before another roll up of system upgrades.


We have made some adjustments on the mail server, better separating between your email folders and the storage of your Sieve scripts. The documentation for mail filters has been updated as well, as it had become obsolete.


The more the merrier

It was judiciously suggested to me to create a dedicated Nomagic_doc room on our Matrix server to let members know how they can contribute to the documentation effort.

The room has been created, and our members are invited to contribute to the documentation by checking out there what needs to be done or reviewed.

Applications upgrades


The following applications have been upgraded to their latest stable versions:

  • Seafile: The Nomagic navigation bar (aka navbar) has been lost in the process. It should make its way back in the next few weeks if all goes well.

Seafile has been our choice for file hosting since early days (long before Nomagic was created) and has proven a very sturdy and reliable software over the years. It’s the main FOSS competitor to NextCloud, and though the business model is open-core (not ideal), it’s still very relevant and very good at what it does, so kudos to the Seafile developpers and community! :heart:

As a Nomagic member, you have access to 8 GB of storage to use however you see fit. Seafile supports encrypted libraries, and as such is incredibly useful to keep sensitive documents both safe and at fingers’ reach.

Bugs and issues

There was some hiccups during the mail server restructuration on Sunday 7th, however it should not have lasted more than an hour. During that time, you would have experienced all kind of mail access/sending issues.

Coming up

web feeds

Our road map now includes:

Short-term objectives

  • Upgrade all containers to Debian 11 Bullseye.

Mid-term objectives

  • Implement Single Sign-On (SSO) so that Nomagic users won’t have to authenticate on each and every service in their Web browser.

Long-term objectives

  • Keep on implementing security/privacy policies.
