Please remember that #Git is by nature distributed. So when migrating from (for example) #GitHub to (for example) #GitLab please, please, please do NOT create a brand new repository and git add the files, or the entire commit history will be lost. Instead, just push the existing repository to your new hosting service.
@kevinflo I like your podcast. I thought you'd like to know.
#Syncthing's web UI has a builtin dark theme and it's gorgeous.
So this year, they added Facebook also: https://fosdem.org/2020/about/sponsors/
FOSDEM is about open source, not freedom.
Why is this a problem? Read this: https://ar.al/2019/01/11/i-was-wrong-about-google-and-facebook-theres-nothing-wrong-with-them-so-say-we-all/
Blog if you can. Answer your own posts/emails if you find the solution. Writing about what you're doing will help other and probably yourself.
The twidere client is unmaintained for more than six months now. It's basically besides andStatus the only OSS twitter client that supports Twitter and Mastodon with a serious UX. It's a real problem for anyone who wants to convert over to mastodon in a soft break.
If anyone out there has the time and love to take this opportunity it would help the fediverse and many people out there for sure.
Peertube has scripts that allows you to upload a complete YouTube-Channel to a desired peertube account.
That way, you can also automatically mirror YouTube-Channels to a PeerTube Channel, from e.g. your laptop.
You don't have to own the instance, you just need an account on that instance.
Boost appreciated :) cc @Framasoft
Developer-driven software distribution is a bad idea, which is why I dislike things like Flatpak.
Having distro maintainers involved in the process and installing your software from a free software distribution like Debian or FreeBSD is a much better distribution of power. The packages can be tuned to suit their environment without the developer having to repackage it for every distro, and the distro maintainers can keep out anti-features like telemetry and advertising.
The middleman may seem annoying to developers, but embrace the model and it'll work for you. Landing packages in your favorite distro isn't actually that hard, and the rest of the distros will follow. If you're an end-user who wants to see some software available for your distro, look into packaging and volunteer - it's easy.
#2236 "Is it Christmas?"
We've tested it on 30 different days and it hasn't gotten one wrong yet.
the federated feed from linernotes is *so* much better than mastodon.social. Nobody ever talks about how a small instance of like-minded people generates a fantastic curation of the verse. #mastometa
