A long-overdue #introductions
Hello! I'm Ivan, I live in Moscow, Russia, and study in the MSU.
In my free time I hack on various FOSS projects and play (vertical scrolling) rhythm games (4K, 7K, SV, LN, bars). My favorite programming language is #Rust. My main #VSRG is Quaver, which I am helping to develop.
I'm quite interested in tool-assisted speedrunning. I've created #TAS tools for Half-Life 1 and studied it extensively.
I've also made a Minecraft mod.
FOSS maintainers, what's your angle on taking smaller patches with some code debt from first-time/irregular contributors as-is, versus asking them to make changes to ease the debt at the risk of putting them off?
Status update, November 2019
For all my not-Sourcehut projects

I don't understand why GitLab is doing these things. Even on behalf of Sourcehut, there are subsets that I don't really try to compete with GitLab on. They have a place in this ecosystem and they're working to undermine it. They're making a void that I, even as a competitor, don't want to and am not prepared to fill. The community is going to suffer for their missteps.
I feel really bad for their employees. If I could help, I would, but Sourcehut isn't big enough to provide a fallback for them. To any GitLab employees who know something I can do to help, or just want to talk, I can lend a sympathetic and private ear at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If MTProto is open, why aren't people writing their own server implementations?
There are multiple open client-side implementations, but #Telegram doesn't want to open-source their server implementation and so we have none of those. I mean how hard could it be?..
