Linux Developer Network will not return
The Linux Foundation has decided that it will not be restoring the Linux Developer Network (LDN) web site in the rebuilding of its sites. This follows September 2011's security breach which also took Linux.com and all the other Foundation's web sites offline. Most of the sites were restored within the following month.
In an statement to ITWorld, Jennifer Cloer, the Foundation's Director of Communications and Community, confirmed that the LDN site would not be returning, saying that much of its primary content was already available on Linux.com and LinuxFoundation.org and that the decision had been taken to help "us to better focus our limited resources". The LDN site had carried a range of reference and information resources.
It is believed that the 8 September 2011 breach of the Foundation's sites was connected to the 28 August 2011 breach of Kernel.org. With only two weeks between the intrusions, it is possible, but this is still conjecture as the Linux Foundation has yet to release a report on the incident. The report may soon be forthcoming though as the work checking the various sites for unauthorised changes has now been completed.
