schestowitz__"May 16 02:10
schestowitz__Filing an anonymous opposition by a patent agent is also risky, the uninterested party might be discovered by social engineering. Using public resources like registers or social networks you might find a link between the patent agent and the uninterested person. Even if you use an unknown patent agent, usually suggested by you usual patent agent, there is a risk of discovering a link between both patent agents...May 16 02:10
schestowitz__If anonymity is the real concern you should consider to use a commercial service provider like e.g. This could also solve the problem of anonymous experimental data or? It might not solve the problem of a technical experts attending the oral proceedings.May 16 02:10

schestowitz__Wow, there sure seem to be a lot of patent agents around filing oppositions!May 16 02:10
schestowitz__I used to see individual attorneys taking on the role of the strawperson, but I think this has fallen out of favour. I forget exactly why naming an individual was ever seen as preferable to filing in the name of a firm or a made-for-the-purpose shell company. It's a bit morbid, but I always wondered what would happen if that individual died while the opposition was ongoing.May 16 02:10

schestowitz__                    <p> A Fedora 35 change proposal submitted this week that is ruffling some feathers is over removing the "allow SSH root login with password" option from Fedora's Anaconda installer. </p>May 16 08:58
schestowitz__                    <p> The past several years there has been a Fedora installer option to "allow SSH root login with password" to enable password-based logins over SSH. This hasn't been enabled by default but simply offered as an option for those wanting a password based login. </p>May 16 08:58
schestowitz__                    <p> With Fedora 35 this autumn the change proposal wants to eliminate this option from the installer. The basis is that the option was planned to only be temporary and security benefits in just dropping the option to encourage users to rely on SSH keys, etc. </p></blockquote></li>May 16 08:58
