NetworkManager, OpenVPN on Fedora 21

On openvpn setups where MD5 is still in use with the SSL certificate, it's now impossible to connect when you are in Fedora 21. To allow openvpn client to connect to such VPN using NetworkManager, you need to modify /usr/lib/systemd/system/NetworkManager.service and add the following two lines in [Service] section:
Environment="NSS_HASH_ALG_SUPPORT=+MD5"
Environment="OPENSSL_ENABLE_MD5_VERIFY=1"
Restart the service and it will work ;)

Get Things Gnome : synchronize multiple computers

Since many years now I use GTG to manage my todo lists. (it can even be ). I tried to use Remember The Milk service to sync my laptop and my desktop but it wasn't really working well. Then I discovered a nice project : GTGonline, a Django project that allows the synchronization to and from GTG via a backend called backend_gtgonline. I forked the project to create a branch (that will never be merged it seems) to not hardcode the url of the service as I host my own version of GTGonline backend. My branch is https://github.com/lefred/backend_gtgonline/tree/service-url and I also provide a rpm package for Ferdora 20.
