The "polished" version of our recording for the #fdroid app review process is now online:

https://libre.video/videos/watch/4a68e420-e308-4958-ab5d-6aa0c788f07b

It corrects some of the issues (audio & video are in sync now, missing drop-downs have been edited in, some "unnecessary pieces" have been edited out). The previous "raw uncut recording" will probably be removed soon, please use this new one instead.

Thanks again to all who participated! And a happy new year with happy new review(er)s :awesome:

For those who missed it, and those who want to repeat it: the recording of our first training session / talk on "F-Droid App Review" is online now

https://libre.video/videos/watch/5d32d19d-e012-4b6c-a962-14e670f1648b

I've created a new channel for it, as hopefully more are to come (and hopefully also in better quality than this "quick cut", I'm out of training in video editing):

We had such a lovely time in our #Christmas #Matrix room that we decided to make it a permanent thing! ✨

Behold, a general #fediverse chatroom: https://app.element.io/#/room/#afediversechat:matrix.org 🎉🎉

So far there have been interesting discussions about topics like #foss, #federation, #opensource, #phones, #OS, but also non-tech topics. It's at a different pace than #mastodon, so they compliment each other nicely.

There's an open door policy, so anyone is welcome to join 😊

Hurra! Threemas Clients sind nun endlich quelloffen! 🥳🎉🎊🥂

Das ist definitiv ein großer Schritt in die richtige Richtung – denn nur öffentlich zugänglicher Quellcode kann unabhängig auf seine #Sicherheit überprüft werden.

Bis 28. Dezember gibt es zu diesem Anlass einen 50%-Rabatt: 🔗 https://threema.ch/de/blog/posts/open-source-rabatt

Would people be comfortable using #Discord? Because that's the only solution I can think of right now that's free, can host a large number of people, and has guaranteed chat and video quality. #Foss alternatives are very welcome!
 
@sl007

Would be WONDERFUL if some fine #fediverse fedizens can pick up the Discourse #activitypub integration. It may be created as a plugin and would be great on ones #foss portfolio and become famous 😉

With this feature in place, tons of #forums would be integrated and our fedi would be so much richer yet again.

Any (would-be) #ruby developers out there interested to pick up the challenge?

Should be able to get #nlnet #NGI0 #discourse (?) funding.

Just watched a pretty impressive demo of a #FOSS #livestream platform #OwnStream (nothing to do with ownCloud), already shipping with working chat.

https://owncast.online/

It isn't #P2P, but takes an #RTMP stream (hello, #OBS) and shares it on a rather nice looking webpage, from what I can tell. Early days yet, but already working surprisingly well!

If #PeerTube is more #YouTube like, then this is more like #Twitch.

Seems to be developed by @fribbledom among others.

As you all might have noticed by now, I am not using Diaspora* anymore - you can find me on the Fediverse though: https://mastodon.social/@rysiek

Years ago I gave a talk about how FLOSS social networks need to start federating with one another, implementing each-other's protocols, because to have 50 incompatible FLOSS social networks is madness.

This finally started happening with #ActivityPub. Sadly, #Diaspora decided not to implement it. I feel this is a bad decision for Diaspora*, and a bad decision for the broader FLOSS community. And so, I am moving on, to the ActivityPub side of the Fediverse.

Join me there.

Hello lovely people! I'm thinking about developing a distributed, decentralized platform for exchanging and subscribing to calendar-based content. It will become an open source solution. Is there any experience here in the community with similar solutions that already exist or have failed? What do you think is best practice for distributed solutions in 2020? Architecture, protocols, interfaces, server-side technology ... ? Thanks :)

Hallo zusammen! :anxde:

Dieses Jahr möchten wir einem FOSS-Projekt direkt etwas Gutes tun und es finanziell ein wenig unterstützen.

Dazu benötigen wir EURE Vorschläge. Weitere Infos unter:

Fleißiges Teilen ist ausdrücklich erwünscht! 😉

Habe mir gerade ein #GitHub Konto angelegt. Lange habe ich mich dagegen geweht, weil es nicht nur einen Grund gegen GitHub gibt: eine proprietäre Plattform, nicht datenschutzfreundlich, eine Quasi-Monopolstellung und noch einiges anderes...

Letztendlich konnte ich aber schon so oft zu sonst guten #FOSS Projekten nicht beitragen, dass es für Privacy & FOSS unterm Stich mehr nutzt, wenn ich mich doch überwinde dort beizutragen.

Drittquellen und Tracker werden natürlich trotzdem lokal geblockt.

BiglyBT is a feature filled, open source, ad-free, bittorrent client.
BiglyBT is the continuation of the Vuze/Azureus open source project first created in 2003, and is being actively developed by the original coders.
We've kept all of the features you love, while dropping the ones you probably don't (such as ads and third party software).
If you are already using Azureus or Vuze then see what features and fixes you are missing. You'll have the option to copy and migrate the configuration settings, downloads, and plugins.

I just learned about a new "#indexed #collection of #governance documents from #FOSS projects": https://fossgovernance.org/

Besides being very useful in itself, what I really love is that they use one of my favourite #FreeSoftware solutions for it:

"The collection lives in #Zotero, which means not only is the collection completely catalogued and indexed, but also each doc comes with a #snapshot so you can use the collection #offline and search the contents of all of the governance docs at once."
