Work on Gajim 1.4 is making big steps forward! 🚀 After nine months of developing Gajim’s new main window, the code was finally ready to be merged into the master branch. This enables automatic builds of nightlies for Linux and Windows.
This blog entry on Syncthing mirrors my own experiences using it recently (in the last week).
And gosh does this blog have a great presentation style!
After Mozilla recently began accepting donations via BitPay, many people started being vocal about cancelling Mozilla and Firefox and switching to other browsers.
I know crypto sucks, but don't y'all realize that the other browser engines are developed by megacorps that are LEAGUES ahead in terms of ecologic impact, and that are almost entirely built on top of evil business models?
Mozilla's only sin was accepting donations via BitPay. Please let's stop being so toxic about everything, and boycott BitPay and Bitcoin rather than Mozilla, shall we?
It’s really sad IMO. I do think running a forum for project like social network makes little sense as most of people will just use masto to communicate or issue on a tracker to submit problems. It’s as useless as providing Teams/Slack to discuss development of xmpp/matrix. Looking at the masto discourse it’s pretty dead anyway so should be wiped as it wasn’t used. What worries me is the argumentation behind the move. I think projects like mastodon should actually promote and use solutions that are made within the community it co-creates. It should set an example and show that just like social networks, other tools exists and can be succesfully used outside walled gardens. Especially for a project that does exactly that. Most of the contributors/feedback givers would most likely have no problem switching to alternative, as this was most likely their motivation to use mastodon in the first place. Sure move from github is probably hard and something you can’t just do in one click, but if done (move to codeberg for example) could be a big signal for others that it is possible as well as pull people into such solution. With fediforge we might soon have federated git issue trackers.
Don’t dismiss work of others @Gargron ! Embrace the ecosystem you are part of. Don’t worry, people will follow.
Fedizens, great news!
