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.
I absolutely love the fact that #Peertube videos can be commented from Mastodon & others.
I have a lot to catch up now :) Thanks @sl007 and everyone involved.

Is #Snowden's book Permanent Record available anywhere as a drm-free epub?
"A reflection on the departure of #RMS" - Thomas Bushnell, BSG
Who here is on #Manyverse?
Yay! @grote has been working on a free software alternative for backups on Android \o/
When developers sign NDAs they cannot expose vital details to their fellow developers who are outside the scope of the #NDA. The whole #FOSS ecosystem suffers when developers aren't on equal footing with regards to information available to them.
See also the "responsible" disclosure of #intel CPU bugs. The same problems exist there.
Curate your own Fediverse
* Use filters liberally to remove posts that annoys you
* Mute or block other people or bots who get boosted into your timeline if you don't want to see them again
* Try to remember to not click on CW's for stuff that will leave you feeling worse
And you never have to explain why
You can do so for reasons that are entirely "selfish" or "petty"
E.g. "Their jokes were crass so I muted them"
Make the Fediverse a place that's good for you
Periodic reminder to move your free software projects out of Microsoft GitHub.
Here's my collection of public free software hosting sites.
Self-hosting a Gitea instance is also a good option if you have a server.
