We are looking for more maintainers for specific apps in #FDroid. Here is a list of some that would need some love:
If you know how to build software in general, no particular Android experience is required. This can be picked up as you go :)
All of those already have working recipes available but all of them also have quirks that require manual action when updating.
Please get in contact, if you use one of these and are interested!
Some of us install 'Stylish' to force wide columns on Mastodon.. Well apparently it's logging all your internet history to create a profile on users:

I'm probably the last to hear about this, but apparently if your channel is big enough google won't let you turn off ads on your channel.
which is really weird, and saddening.
The Corporation behind and the Admins of Twitter can see your “Private Messages”
The Corporation behind and the Admins of Facebook can see your “Private Messages.”
The Admins of Mastodon can see your Direct Messages. They aren’t private.
With Mastodon, you can spin up your own instance and be your own Admin.

My favorites on the list are:

I've read a few of this guy's articles and all the ones I've read have a good element of story telling to them as well as things to consider.
I think the follow up article to this was more useful to consider, but this one is very entertaining ( in a gossippy sort of way ).
What really frustrates me about these recruiters is that there are so, so many junior developers in NYC having a hard time because every time they apply they're told "we're looking for someone a little more senior"

Also I hope that any and all who read this (as in this particular toot) have an awesome day!😉
