We'd like to take the opportunity to thank all the Debian contributors for their work in the past and on the upcoming #Bullseye release. Thank you for reliably powering Codeberg since day one!

Moving to #Codeberg is as easy as moving away - no vendor lock-in included!

Read docs.codeberg.org/advanced/mig about how to migrate from #GitHub, #GitLab.com or other providers to Codeberg. Afterwards, you can easily hop between #Gitea hosts as you like!

#Google reduced Play store commission from 30% to 15% for small #android devs (<1M per year, which is most of us). This is a good! Encourages paid economy over tracking and advertising.
Most #foss projects like @apps and many others prefer the paid model over ads so this is good! 😃

Consider #Aurora Store as an alternative to #Google #PlayStore.

What it is:
- it is a Google Play Store mirror
- open source and free
- no tracking
- available on F-Droid (#fdroid)
- works without a Google account
- doesn't need Google Play Services (nor #microG)
- not recommended: you can log in with a Google account if you wish
- UI is way easier to navigate compared to Google's Store

Some notes about dailydriving #postmarketOS on #pinephone.

@talkpine: VLC is actually able to save playback positions. the desktop variant is of course not exactly optimized for phones, but I keep coming back to it after trying various other players from time to time.
