A comment about the news on Audacity development, acquisition by MuseGroup, etc. (previously we could think on MuseScore) and free software work and communities in general, about which I would much like any insights and opinions:
Judging for the reactions here [1]and here[2], it seems that forking is one considered option.
But development (of software and communities) it's already hard enough to sustain and make grow, so, it's reasonable to try to avoid fragmentation as long as it's sensible and convenient.

Under capitalism this happens once and again. Developers want to eat and live properly (from their own work) and capitalists make use of that necessity to capture work already done (and future), i.e., profit, with the perspective of an initial inversion (sometimes, at least) and a viable structure.

But the reason-to-be of capital is the capture of surplus value (sorry for the jargon, please allow me) in an always increasing cycle, and that's inevitably in conflict with the social common interest and solidarity that's at the kernel of free software culture and communities.

In a very superficial analysis I guess the Muse Group [3]is in first place this guy Eugeny Naidenov that apparently founded "Ultimate Guitar" (nothing FLOSS until here) and then went in a succession of acquisitions just to increase his Group's portfolio, and those acquisitions are both of free software developments/platforms and proprietary, so, doesn't seems like a free software endeavor but just "business as usual"...

Free software communities will have to show their abilities to defend themselves. This is historic, and I really desire for the best.

Yes. And the shock when you learn what Darwin is within Apple's ecosystem, and how e.g. the #GPL can be enforced in court (there's lists by the #FSFE and the #FSF for that).
#GPL #FSFE #FSF
 
For those of you who don't support RMS' rejoining the FSF, would you also support NOT using the #GPL in future projects. Would you also use permissively-licensed compiler toolchains to build your projects?

#programming
 
Ich höre und lese immer wieder „#Copyleft-Lizenzen wie die #GPL sind inkompatibel zu anderen #FOSS-Lizenzen und spalten damit das FOSS-Ökosystem”.

Leider hält sich dieser Mythos noch immer. Aber das Gegenteil ist eigentlich der Fall: Copyleft-Lizenzen garantieren die dauerhafte Beibehaltung von Freiheitsrechten und verhindern proprietäre Forks von #OpenSource-Software.

Wenn euch Kompatibilität mit anderen Lizenzen wichtig ist, dann nutzt die #MPL oder die #EUPL:

Einerseits schade, dass wir über kommerzielle Ausbeutung des FOSS-Ökosystems diskutieren müssen, andererseits ziemlich toll, dass wir diese Diskussion endlich mal führen.

Unternehmen, die Open-Source-Software nutzen, um damit Software zu bauen und unter ihrer eigenen proprietären Lizenz vertreiben, schaden dem FOSS-Ökosystem. Deshalb ist #Copyleft so wichtig. #gpl #mpl #agpl #lgpl #eupl #foss #opensource
 
Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #anime, #doctorwho, #eff, #foss, #freesoftware, #gnu, #gpl, #haskell, #linux, #makerspaces, #nethack, #privacy, #programming, #security, and #startrek.

Been meaning to check diaspora out for a while now. Feel free do say hello.

Ein RIESENPROBLEM ist das es für digitale #Commons, Freie Software die gemeinschaftlich gehegt und gepflegt wird ist ein Commons, keine Rechtsform gibt.

Mit der liberalisierung der Rechtsordnung zum Ende des 18Jhd hin, wurden bisherige anerkannte Gemeinschaftsrechte wegrasiert. Heutzutage gibt es bei uns nur "Privatrecht" oder "Staatsrecht".

Commons müssen wieder in "Ordentliches" Rechte bekommen. Nein, LegalHacking (#CC, #GPL, #Copyleft etc) löst das Problem nicht.

Ist so ein Aufkleber geeignet, um über freie #Software nachzudenken?


In meinem letzten Beitrag haben wir uns reichhaltigen über die Schwächen von freier Software ausgetauscht. Diesmal wollen wir etwas zielgerichteter diskutieren:

1) Werden die richtigen Vorteile angesprochen?
2) Ist die Aussage leicht verständlich?
3) Ist der Aufkleber ansprechend?

Eure #Meinung zählt wie immer 😘

Hat schon mal jemand #GPL-Quellcode angefordert, der nicht veröffentlicht war?
 

Frei Software könnte der Hebel sein, um die #Monopole von #Google, #Facebook, #Microsoft, #Apple und Anderen aufzubrechen.


Ich frage mich aber ob die Menschheit zu minderqualifiziert ist, um dies zu begreifen? Offene und freie Software spielt nur eine Nebenrolle im kommerziellen Markt, wobei sich Konzerne gerne bedienen dann aber die #GPL verletzen. Die selben Konzerne, die sonst mit allen Mitteln ihr #Copyright durchsetzen.

Helianthus - new project for education


русский текст ниже

Helianthus -- is the multimedia library for making learning of the C language fun and interesting.

The C language is as close as possible to the machine language of the processor. And programming in C allows you to better understand how the computer works. Having understood the C language, you can easily learn any other programming language.

However, starting to learn C using only standard functions is boring. All we can work with (besides computing) is a text console where we can read and display text.

Connecting third-party libraries and building a project with graphics and sound is often not an easy task for a beginner.

This library provides to you a set of simple functions for working with graphics, sound and physics. So at the very beginning of learning the C language you can create interesting and beautiful programs.

Library released as public domain, but using of dependencies GTK3, SDL2, Cairo and FreeType may set an additional restriction to produced binaries (Zlib, #GPL or other libre license).

Online documentation (yet russian only):


https://coolbug.org/users/bw/helianthus-doc-ru/index.html

Repo (alpha version - may contain bugs):


https://coolbug.org/earthworm/user/bw/repo/helianthus
https://repo.coolbug.org/bw/helianthus

Examples repo (one example yet):


https://coolbug.org/earthworm/user/bw/repo/helianthusexamples
https://repo.coolbug.org/bw/helianthusexamples
теперь по-русски

Helianthus -- мультимедиа библиотека для того чтобы изучать язык Си было весело и интересно.

Язык Си максимально приближен к машинному языку процессора, и, программирование на Си позволяет вам лучше понять как устроен компьютер. Поняв язык Си вы с лёгкостью освоите любой другой язык программирования.

Однако начинать изучать язык Си опираясь только на стандартные функции достаточно скучно. Всё с чем мы можем работать (помимо вычислений) — это текстовый терминал где мы можем читать и выводить текст.

Подключать же сторонние библиотеки и собирать из них полноценный проект с графикой и звуком зачастую не такая уж и простая задача для новичка.

Данная библиотека предоставляет вам набор простых функций для работы с графикой, звуком и физикой, для того чтобы вы в самом начале изучения языка Си могли создавать интересные и наглядные примеры.

Библиотека распространяется как общественное достояние, однако для сборки трубуются библиотеки GTK3, SDL2, Cairo и FreeType. По этому на окончательный исполняемый файл могут быть наложены ограничения #GPL, Zlib или другой свободной лицензии.

Online документация (пока только на русском):

в коде могут содержаться ошибки, указание на них или даже исправление приветсвуется

I'm really happy to see the trend in FOSS :opensource: licenses is moving towards MIT and Apache like licenses and we are seeing GPL like licenses being abolished slowly.

Free means Free!

@balouqlc @favstarmafia @nipos Es liegt nicht nur am Geld oder an dem Nerdkram. Der Apple Store ist nicht mit allen Lizenzen vereinbar. Wenn einzelne Module der Apps mit #GPL lizensiert sind, dann kann das schon schwierig werden. Das war auch meiner Meinung nach das Problem mit #Signal (omemo). Ganz so tief stecke ich nicht in der Materie aber es liegt nicht immer am Willen der Entwickler. ChatSecure, finde ich, ist nicht nutzbar.
