Stumbled over a broken package in the geopandas dependencies.

Updated version of the depenceny from pip worked, so i tried doing a minimal effort update of the port which worked too and contacted the port maintainer who answered literally within the minute and is now fixing the issue upstream.

This kind of thing keeps happening to me and is something I haven't encountered with any other OS ever.

Passionate maintainers like that are much of why I'm sticking to FreeBSD these days.

I don't quite understand the German vs French numbers. France now has surpassed Germany in numbers of infections, even though they have stricter curfew rules in place, plus their death rate is like 6 times of Germany's.

One of the hardest services to configure for me was openldap+tls+letsencrypt+multimaster. Once I got it all working on #FreeBSD I wrote #Ansible role for it. Feel free to grab it from Once I test it more, I'll publish it on Ansible Galaxy.

#hikari 1.0.0-beta3 is out. It's time to get ready for the RC phase. At this point I won't be adding new features but will only focus on bugs (not missing functionality) and documentation. Testers appreciated 🐞 Hopefully there will be a 1.0.0 in about 2 weeks from now. 😺 #Wayland #FreeBSD #Linux

Anybody looking for a remote sysadmin job? shop, but if you have Linux/Unix experience and are BSD-curious, that should work as well. German is a plus, so is being in or near CET.
If you're interested, DM me.

I'll be giving my talk "#X11 and #wayland - A tale of two implementations" on implementing #hikari on #FreeBSD in the #BSD devroom at #FOSDEM at 15:25. Come and say 'Hi' I'll be leaving pretty quickly after the talk, if you want to grab a hold of me.
