Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!
This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.
#GNU contributors: consider joining!
#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!
A bit late to the game, but only read this now: @fsf "He has sincere regrets, especially at how anger toward him personally has negatively impacted the reputation and mission of FSF."
What a weasel worded message! So he regrets that his actions causes damage to the FSF instead of regretting anything he said or did? And to rectify the regrets, he takes a seat at the FSF's board? Got it [not]!
I am glad the @fsfe exists and is much more reasonable!
I really want to like the @librem.one service. However, chat.librem.one is down. webfinger is still not set up correctly on librem.one. (https://social.librem.one/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:email@example.com works, but https://librem.one/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:firstname.lastname@example.org does not, but it should be working). And upgrading an account from the free basic to a paid full bundle failed to work.
Sorry, but if you want me to pay money for this, it should be working.
And by that, I am no referring to Microsoft specifically. I would be upset by ANY 3rdparty that raspian silently includes. I decide myself which organizations I trust to shove code on my computer.
if you only want to disable that for the on screen keyaboard you can use
gsettings set org.sigxcpu.feedbackd.application:/org/sigxcpu/feedbackd/application/sm-puri-squeekboard/ profile silent
If somebody wants to look at the GUI bits: https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/gnome-control-center/-/issues/115
Just built webapp-manager https://github.com/linuxmint/webapp-manager/releases/tag/1.1.1 (needed build-essential, debhelper) and make the resulting .deb file available here. Don't trust me/it blindly!

My sister-in-law created the mug papyrus (https://www.theresa-bodelschwingh.de/2020/04/21/becher-papyrus/) and told my 12-year old she would love to photograph it with a bird, perhaps a robin. My son puts up a tent in the garden, waits, and...
@en is the hugo/ActivityPub module still a thing? I looked like a pretty cool approach to make things more interactive.
