Somehow I managed to install the debian stock GIMP 2.8 and compile the git 2.9. I had the impression that at some point they were both working, but after some upgrade of one and/or another, 2.8 was complaining about an improper version of libgimp.

That would probably have been prevented by doing things right, which may have included creating a debian package for 2.9, among other things. Perhaps the most important "other thing" would have been paying more attention with the...

When a client acquires an address through SLAAC its IPv6 address is derived from the advertised prefix and the MAC address of the network interface of the client. This may raise security concerns as the MAC address of the computer can be easily derived by the IPv6 address. In order to tackle this problem the IPv6 Privacy Extensions standard (RFC 4941) has been developed....
