Today I was procrastinating ... err, toying around with authenticator and implemented an OATH-compatible login mode for #OpenBSD – RFC 6238 (TOTP) and RFC 4226 (HOTP). https://github.com/reyk/login_oath/blob/master/README.md

The slides for my talk are now on the BSDCan website.
The slides for Bob Beck's #BSDCan 2018 talk "Pledge, and unveil in #OpenBSD" are up! https://www.openbsd.org/papers/BeckPledgeUnveilBSDCan2018.pdf
Bob Beck's pledge/unveil talk is the "but one more thing!" talk that the BSD community deserves.
Abuse isn't cool. Lennart has received death threats.
Contempt isn't cool. Mocking SystemD is equally uncool.
We in the BSDs don't really want to bring an attitude of abuse or contempt.
[Personal note: I've received both death threats and mocking from the BSD community for my involvement in #HardenedBSD. It's refreshing to see this kind of conversation from Benno.]
Once out of beta -- should people want to use the app! -- I will restructure the governance. We will become a co-operative, with positions for PMs, marketing & outreach, security, and grievances up for yearly vote. I have nothing concrete about this yet so let me know your favorite project that works like this so I can learn!
(I also will not be merging code patches until the project is out of beta. There's too much refactoring to do beforehand.)
Announcing the public alpha of Flashbulb, a media-focused Mastodon client for Android:
You can see what I have left before the public beta: https://gitlab.com/flashbulb/android/milestones/1
I will start publishing the apk when ready for the beta, and then to F-Droid soon after.
If you try it please open issues with bugs and dreams: https://gitlab.com/flashbulb/android/issues
(I will not be working on this project for the next 11 days due to travel.)

Spent today playing with GitLab and it's not bad! I'd even say it's pretty good!
So where are we hosting Free Software code these days?
Looking for something with Git, code browsing, patch management/submission, and bug reports, at a minimum.
