If you’re going through a border and you have a Mac and Apple Watch with you and your Mac can be unlocked with the watch, make sure you take the watch off or that it is locked or, depending on jurisdiction, you might be forced to unlock your Mac.

Geary has two projects approved for Outreachy, a paid-internship programme to support people from groups that are underrepresented in tech, to help make their first contributions to a FOSS project.

The first is is looking at improving Geary's user experience with junk email, the second is looking at creating automated mail server testing for Geary.

If those sound interesting, please do apply: outreachy.org/apply

Boosts appreciated!

Well, I just had a couple of pull requests to personal projects by people half my age. One of the projects was started when the contributor was only eight years old. This makes me both feel old, and in awe at the same time :thaenkin:
