I just donated 25$ to GNOME to fight patent trolls. And so should you! It doesn’t happen offen that someone rejects the settlement and wants to go through courts to get it invalidated, including filing a counter claim so they can’t just drop it.
We're trying to defend #FOSS from patent trolls. Please help us: https://www.gnome.org/news/2019/10/gnome-files-defense-against-patent-troll/
I have spent the weekend playing with a @wallabagapp GTK & Rust client.

Read Carlos Garnacho's blog post about the first day.
Anybody has a touch mouse and uses Fedora 31? Some feedback on gnome-shell overview scrolling would be appreciated with stock shell and https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/exalm/gnome-shell-gestures/
Bonus points for a libinput recording of you scrolling in overview. :)
fsf, rms, etc
"On Recent Controversial Events" -- from Bradley Kuhn's blog http://ebb.org/bkuhn/blog/2019/10/15/fsf-rms.html
His thoughtful post reminds me, FSF has a separate class of voting members. Did #RMS resign as a voting member or just as dir/president? It's unclear.
Per the bylaws, the voting members are effectively "in charge" of the organization because they are the ones who name the board of directors. https://static.fsf.org/nosvn/fsf-amended-bylaws-current.pdf
GitHub & ICE
'Letter from GitHub employees to CEO about the company's ICE contract'
Today is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. It's the day of self-reflection and atonement, and on this day, shooters around the world have targeted Jews.
When I say my people are under attack in large and small ways, this is no exageration. Please don't be part of the hatred towards Jews, and be mindful of the micro-agressions that we face and listen when a Jewish person tells you that something is antisemetic.
If you care, please pass this along.
