Anyone who claims they can cure cancer is a charlatan until proved otherwise.

I finished reading the How To Destroy Surveillance Capitalism book and wrote a short review. Might be useful if you didn't get time to read:

It took almost a week to fix autoprefixer and finally fixed with help from @jishnu

I was building autoprefixer without postcss all this time where as autoprefixer-rails expect autoprefixer + postcss.

Thanks a lot Jishnu for the continuous support for building nodejs libraries in debian from source!

So with this now, diaspora can be installed in debian main (though some gems are still embedded and would be nice to have them replaced with packaged versions).

After many years of packaging work by many contributors, today I was able to install #diaspora native debian package.

Out of 101 direct dependencies and 223 total dependencies, only 7 of them needed to be handled outside of debian packages.

autprefixer-rails gem had to be installed from because debian does not have browserify packaged and building with rollup and webpack created a broken bundle.
