It's been an amazing ride, and I'm incredibly grateful for the trust placed in me. But I'm now glad to have so many great community members who will step up and continue the work.

Godspeed and all the best to the newly elected leadership team! Looking forward to watching y'all take this community to new heights.

After five years on the @ubports Foundation Board of Directors, it was time for me to make room for fresh faces and not to run for re-election.

I've been around since the first days of planning the Foundation, back when we were just a small porting community. Canonical handing over the project to us changed everything. For a long time, has been my life.

On fediverse, remember that your admin has access to their instance database, and can read whatever you post, and whatever posts you can read, no matter what the access level is (and this includes DMs, of course). This is not significantly different to monolithic social media, except that the admin potentially has a smaller pool of people they can spy on, if they're so inclined. You should always share particularly sensitive information via end-to-end encrypted chat, no matter what platform you're using, fediverse or not.

Hope my therapist is enjoying her vacation 🙂🙂🙂

UBports Installer 

A new @ubports Installer prerelease!

Improved bug reporting, a new --systemimage cli flag, the option to show hidden channels, bugfixes, and more!

Get yours and help us test: github.com/ubports/ubports-ins

A lot of work also went into improving the config file specification. Porters can now specify a semantic versioning expression to make sure only a compatible version of the Installer will be used. That, and many improvements to automatic validation here: github.com/ubports/installer-c

Please please please stop harassing random Slavic people on the street going about their lives. Even if you get it right and they are Russian, even if they like Putin, nothing whatsoever is accomplished by racist shit like that. Just don't. It's great y'all want to stop Putin, but there's stuff you can do that actually helps: how-to-help-ukraine-now.super.

Random German dude on the bus just accused my partner of being a "one of Putin's spies", because they were on the phone speaking a foreign language. The language was Ukrainian. My partner was talking to their family in Lwiw.

Since some of you asked, here's the recording of my presentation on crowdsourced user-testing in communities like @ubports:

OPEN-CUTS 

You may have heard me talk about it on the @ubports Q&A a while back. The idea is to do software testing in communities by having inexperienced members contribute results of manual tests to an easy-to-use online tool. This lead to the creation of the open crowdsourced user testing suite OPEN-CUTS, which we tested in the community: ubports.open-cuts.org/

Hi, I'm ready to start going by my chosen name. You can call me Johannah, or Hannah for short (she/they).

My sister reacting to my coming-out: "yeah, checks out, you've always been more of a girl than me"

is someone cutting onions in here :')

depol, FDP 

Wenn ich heute noch ein Mal "Digitalisierung ist ja auch eine Kernkompetenz der FDP" hören muss, zünde ich irgendwas an.

Nochmal zum Mitschreiben: Bei jeder Gelegenheit mit beiden Armen wedelnd "DIGITALISIERUNG BLOCKCHAIN ELON MUSK AI" zu rufen hat mit Kompetenz einfach gar nichts zu tun 🙄
