What if there was a combined Free Software, OSHW and Right to Repair group, providing ideological leadership in a peer to peer fashion via federated services (including Git-based code hosting) and an emphasis on teaching how to self-host your own federated hosting infrastructure?


@cal well, yes but i'm critical of such things because they hide from the user how things work, and are often messy/bloated underneath, and not very flexible

my preference is to teach people how to set stuff up from scratch. on my hosting set up i set up postfix, nginx, bind, git and several other things up from scratch, and i maintain these manually

but yes, something plug and play like freedombox will also be wonderful for most normal people, and should be promoted

@libreleah @cal Yeah, it would be great if we could remove layers to make it simple, rather than add layers to make it look easy.
