I'd like to share the global coordination effort: listing of the engineering groups that are working on solving some aspect of the COVID-19 crisis: "List of Engineering COVID Groups": Examples: sharing of the Best Current Practices handbooks; discussion groups; maker-spaces for open-source 3D printing of ventilator hardware; hackathons; regional cross-connections... Please add your efforts or events to that list! And thanks, Emile Aben, for sharing this link with me. Credit where the credit is due...

“The project page notes the deadline as September 9th, however after the application is submitted, we are told that the deadline was September 1st and we are wait-listed. Which is the correct deadline? Thanks, Tasos Bitsios”

Thank you for pointing that out - we have fixed the text. (the original deadline was 1. September, we have extended it but there are many places where that was supposed to be fixed, and we missed one or two). Regards, Vesna

• On Measuring Gender Diversity at RIPE Meetings by Shane Kerr

I like the related article in Atlantic ("I Spent Two Years Trying to Fix the Gender Imbalance in My (STEM) Stories") from February 2018, and a quote: "Crucially, I tracked how I was doing in a simple spreadsheet. I can’t overstate the importance of that: It is a vaccine against self-delusion. It prevents me from wrongly believing that all is well."

• On Measuring your Web Server Reachability with TCP Ping by Rene Wilhelm

Thanks, Stephane! In addition to Stephane's tools being updated to enable this new measurement, Hugo Salgado "patched" the "official" CLI toolset, and since then the new version has been published by Chris Amin: So now there are multiple ways to measure latency towards your web server using command-line tools!

• Reply to Michael Oghia on Follow Up to IXP Tools Hackathon: Code Sprint by Vesna Manojlovic

“Hi Vesna, thanks for covering this! Does the Country Jedi have to be installed from GitHub to use? Or is there an online portal? I am not sure how to get it to work, but I want to share it with people (and encourage them to use it). I liked Mirjam's presentation at the CEE Peering Days, and I think it could be really useful. Feel free to ping me on another platform too.”

Hi Michael, thanks for your interest! Yes, IXP-Country-Jedi is available both as an installed version, and as an "online portal" - however, it is still a prototype! You can find the latest data per country here: For example, Serbia: The additional "Per AS report" is only available for Greece, for now: And the code on GitHub is here: I hope you have fun using it, and thanks for pointing people to our tools! Cheers, Vesna
