GNOME and gestures, Part 3: HdyLeaflet again https://blogs.gnome.org/alexm/2019/12/12/gnome-and-gestures-part-3-hdyleaflet-again/
In 2019, the GNOME travel committee funded almost 70 trips to conferences, hackfests, and events. Help us do even more in 2020 by becoming a Friend of GNOME!
@bugaevc I was reminded recently of this excellent blogpost and I truly believe the way we've been telling people developing software in the *nix world is flawed.
Wrote up the first half of the talk @alatiera and I gave at LAS in blog post form: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2019/12/04/there-is-no-linux-platform-1
tl;dr: The desktop/distro divide is what's keeping us from having decent platforms. Elementary has shown that it's possible for desktop developers to take control, and make an actual consumer product. More of that please :)
So... @tbernard and I (mostly Tobias, really) did a thing couple weeks ago for LAS cause we found the conference name to be orthogonal to its goals.
Here's a blog post version of it.
"There is no “Linux” Platform"
Special shootout to @elementary for being the inspiration and case study for it and doing a kickass job all over the place.

Hi Fediverse 👋
We host our site on a .org domain. Furthermore, we heavily rely on services hosted on .org domains - as for example @codeberg
Please consider supporting the initiative by spreading the word or signing the letter:
There's a petition to Save the .org top level domain. Apparently, ICANN could still stop it from being sold.
I know, petitions rarely work, but I also know that _sometimes_ they do.
Please consider signing if you _run_ anything there, or if you _use_ or _care about_ anything that's on a .org domain. Also, boosting this to others who follow you, would be very much appreciated.
The #GNU Image Manipulation Program maintainers use a lot of branding for their program with something both sexual and offensive to a minority.
When called on it, they tell people to fork.
When people fork it, they are ridiculed and insulted.
If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.
Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.
Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.
A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
