Reminder: I'm trying to assemble a Working Group and a Community Group

This is the time to ask developers of forges (GitLab, Gitea, etc.) and ticket trackers (OpenProject, Taiga, etc.) to implement federation and to join the work on ForgeFed.

If you don't join, you don't get your needs taken into account, and we'll have a less useful lower quality spec.

Reminder, join if this stuff matters to you. And spread the word.


The free software mail client #K9Mail finally got a #Material redesign and tons of other changes & fixes with version 5.700. :yayblob:
Also available via #FDroid:
Be aware though that this is still a preview release. #Android

banning calling people without cognitive disabilities retards is classist and prejudiced against Bostonians

1x1 of what #webdev's should not do, but even Steam does it: UA sniffing.

They block #Firefox. (actually only allow #Chrome/#Chromium) For no reason.

If you try to reproduce it, it works, because Firefox shipped with a crazy workaround and spoofs the #UA. See

Anyway, that this steps have to be taken tells how bad a #browser #monopoly is. #Steam is only one incident.
Look at about:compat to see more workarounds.

More details:

Boxed wine is one thing, but drinking it with an attached plastic punch straw really makes me feel in control of my life.

Thank you for voting! Looks like we'll do monthly community review rounds. More details soon :)

We're working towards releasing the first spec draft, which will include a basic minimal feature set:

- Push Activity automatic publishing when commits are pushed to repos
- Federated opening of issues and commenting on them
- Federated patches and merge requests

More news soon!

@yogthos @mewmew If that’s what you came up with when you last checked, you might want to check again. Communism and it’s friends hundred odd million victims would like a word with you. Yeltsin didn’t have his faith in communism utterly destroyed on the battlefield or even by Wall St. All it took was a visit to an American grocery store. Is Capitalism the best system that ever will be? Probably not. Is it better than anything anyone has come up with so far? Yes. This is history’s verdict on the matter. Have a good day :blobsmile:

Well happy thanks giving to all the Americans out there. Hope you had a good one. 😁🦃🦃🦃

Mozilla's "*privacy not included" page is honestly quite useless to me.

It seems like everything passes their "this product meets our minimum security standards".

PS4 for example. Everything passes yet PlayStation can view your unencrypted messages at anytime. That doesn't sound very PRIVATE to me.

is there anything hotter than a woman with a PGP fingerprint

The new Tesla Cybertruck looks like a Delorian fucked a tank and gave birth to a Cylon.

YouTube2PeerTube now supports fetching languages from YT, Peertube categories and tags! This was a much needed improvement, as tags are important for indexing.

I have some more big improvements coming soon! To those of you that use it, it will work much better in the near future.
