Dear Turris fans,
the Majordomo package was an early approach towards giving the user an overview of activity inside his internal network through the Turris routers. With the course of time, Majordomo became insufficient as a solution and was replaced by Pakon, which utilizes Suricata to display and analyze collected data.
For these reasons, we haven’t been developing Majordomo further and are considering it‘s gradual removal from our supported package list as soon as it has functionally been replaced by Pakon. If you are using Majordomo solely for monitoring network traffic, not much would change for you, you would simply switch to Pakon‘s CLI or web interface. For those users, who want to have continued access to their archived data, we will prepare a static clickable display of their data. The Majordomo module will then gradually be removed from Turris OS so that it‘s outdated state doesn‘t pose a security threat.
The Pakon web interface will be part of Turris OS version 3.10, which planned for spring 2018 and Majordomo would, in that case, be eliminated in summer 2018.
If you have any questions or comments about letting Majordomo go, please post them here.
Your Turris Team
