@varx @adbenitez The difference is that participating in society without using a smartphone built on extractive labor practices is difficult, time-consuming and/or expensive, but publishing one markdown file without involving a proprietary service that tries to monopolize open source attention is easy and free of charge.

We're still looking for an engineer to join us on the
native team here in Vienna. If you like debuggers, writing in , reliability and scalability you should get in contact! Plus all our teams' work is open source.

We are living already in the future. Or which other projects have their production apps on all platforms based on ? Likely, 2021is the year for us to reap and give back visible benefits. What many don't realize: Rust fundamentally eases *loose collaboration*.

Some context on : is a Google-hosted service of CIA agency IQT (in-q-tel). Consequently, the service is inaccessible to users in Crimea, #Cuba , #Iran , #NorthKorea , Sudan, and Syria, due to #sanctions imposed by Office of Foreign Assets Control of the United States.

@zootoot @ehashman @adbenitez Github Pages isn't a unique service and the site is one Markdown file. It could be hosted on Codeberg Pages, Gitlab Pages or even Openshift without much fuss. Or on the infrastructure of one of the free software and open source projects that have signed on.

I get how pragmatic open source projects solving specific domain problems wouldn't mind much hanging around Github, but moral criticism of a free software project really should be coming from higher ground.

@zootoot @ehashman @adbenitez MS #Github has a well-deserved "F" rating by the #FSF: Using github is a lousy idea, and it's terrible for credibility because it demonstrates lack of understanding & commitment to the movement.

ugh woahh, seems I was born in the wrong country, can't even see the report for a pull request of a project I contribute to,

We have been warned that a free version of #Fedilab has been published on GPlay.

We don't own it and we didn't build that version. If you want to use the app for free, you should only download it from #Fdroid which builds apps from sources.

We fully support the Tusky team with regards to what happened to them recently on GPlay. We're glad you're back!
Many Fediverse apps got a warning about UGC from Google, as they don't understand that our apps are like browsers and don't own the content they display.
GPlay store is important for spreading free and open-source alternatives for many services and apps, and we are depending on it to inform and educate people about FOSS apps that respect their privacy!
