A few weeks ago I posted here that the #decentralized blogging platform @PlumeDev had some of its right-to-left (RTL) rendering issues fixed by @ahangarha. I myself had also fixed many little CSS issues related to #RTL for @Mastodon in the past.

Well, expect such kinds of things to happen less often in the future, since #GitHub has mass-blocked many accounts of Iranians* at various levels; This applies not only to Iranian residents, but also sometimes to Iranians living abroad.

* And not only for #Iran, but also for #Cuba, #Syria, #NorthKorea, and #Crimea.

@masoud @PlumeDev @Mastodon though my account is not closed but I myself try to avoid proprietary platform for contributing #FreeSoftware projects.
I try to motivate others to do the same

I believe the solution is to have federated git services (letting fork repo, open issue and send PR/MR independent of where your account is made. Some are working on #forgrfed project for the same goal @forgefed


@ahangarha @masoud @PlumeDev @Mastodon @forgefed

Lets just go distributed right away, not only decentralized!

Also, please don't forget that you can git-send-email patches even if a project is hosted on ! I would even say _do so_ so that people get aware that there is a community outside of github! Even if they cannot apply the patches because they lack the skills (every maintainer of a bigger project should be able to git-am IMO), it makes them aware!
