comment Do pip and easy_install download Python packages securely?
Hmmm.. as I feared the safeguards for python developer security are pretty pitiful. Thanks for that tip - imho it's a step forward for some - but I've just got one laptop, and the challenge is mirroring securely. Currently I'm thinking that the most secure way is to check out the projects VCS repository..

Sure, digital signatures won't protect against a backdoor in the package. They would defend against DNS spoofing and hijacking though. And a way to put backdoors into packages is to hack developer machines, e.g. with a trojaned package ;)

Thanks for this info - I think this is definitely on the right track. I've tried the GUI but just feeding the files to it seems to be creating an output with multiple video tracks, not a single video whose length is the sum of all the inputs..

comment Mac OS X as guest on VirtualBox with Ubuntu Host?
And you're right - recent versions of VirtualBox indeed support OSX as guest.

I'm not planning to use any cracks so OSX will still be doing those system checks - I think that's what this new VirtualBox feature is all about - it directs the check to the underlying Apple hardware device. I'm also planning to run just one copy - and even delete the natively installed one to free up SSD space.

BTW, the EULA is at images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/macosx106.pdf

The difference between my question and those two is that I am planning to run OSX on an "Apple-branded computer" as required by the EULA, which has no mention of virtualisation. Which part of the EULA do you think this would violate?
