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 hope soon (https://gitlab.com/fdroid/rfp/issues/1041). For the moment it’s coming from here: https://github.com/CASES-LU/TACOS/releases/tag/v0.0.15 😉
We published a statement on our stance on neutrality of free software (and why we won't stay neutral in this case): https://f-droid.org/en/2019/07/16/statement.html
If you're Swedish and like Linux, open source and friendly communities, I would highly suggest you checking out the newly started project https://linuxkompis.se.
We currently have a forum, Mastodon instance and an IRC-channel. :)
Bad dream: Mastodon becomes popular and mainstream, then Microsoft comes and invests fifty bajillion dollars into instances "to support open source", then their engineers start introducing features, independent instances can't keep up, and then Microsoft stops federating with all non-Microsoft instances by default "for security reasons".
Embrace, Extend, Extinguish
IMPORTANT: I'm preparing to hand off this instance to a new admin, which could be you!
I'll run the instance as normal for three months. In that time, message me if you want to apply to run the instance. Ideally I'd find someone who would maintain the existing instance rules, since users agreed to those when they joined.
Timeline and rationale to follow. [1/2]

My hours at work have been cut, I will have to start freelancing again or try to get more higher tier Patreon sponsors if I want to keep working on Pixelfed this much.
If you know anyone looking for a full stack laravel developer, let me know!

Ever wondered why programming in Bash is so difficult? Bash employs the same constructs as traditional programming languages; however, under the hood, the logic is rather different.
