OK everyone, please please please donate to @conservancy
! I'm so proud of our work and all of the tangible evidence of it (filed a lawsuit! won DMCA exemptions! expanded Outreachy by 27%! Spent $1.7m on paying people to contribute to FOSS!). Help us keep going...
We at @conservancy filed suit as a purchaser of TVs to stand up for #copyleft. There was no source or offer for source even after we'd been working w/them for a long time on older products. Copyleft can help us take control of our tech in a meaningful way, it's a huge benefit to consumers.
@civodul I've been thinking about your pytorch article and @cwebber's comment about back in the days when Debian packages were built directly by the maintainer and uploaded. What *is* the benefit to building Guix packages on top of PyPI distributions over going straight to the source repository? Are we just enshrining a maintainer build and upload step?
Also just learn about `python -X importtime`.
Yay! My mobile-friendly theme updates to Pelican have been merged. Thanks for all your work @jmayer!
I’m happy to announce the release of Pelican 4.7, with improved default theme rendering on mobile devices, hidden article support, richer logging, and other tweaks & enhancements. Many thanks to the contributors who made this possible! ✨
Had noticed a 5-6 second startup time on a couple of larger Django systems I work on - a little painful during development. Running `cProfile` didn't show anything obvious. Running `python -v` reminded me that there's a lot of importing going on on startup. On a whim, commented out `pandas` and `weasyprint` - this immediately shaved 3 seconds off the startup. Just a reminder that there is a price to pay for these wonderful libraries.

“What’s in a package” 📦
"Almost all" since I left away one package which's dependencues are to hard to package.
We've just released #MediaGoblin 0.12.0. Happy Software Freedom Day! 🎉 https://mediagoblin.org/news/mediagoblin-0.12.0-release.html
Inching closer having MediaGoblin packaged for Guix thanks to help from @jgart and Raghav https://git.sr.ht/~mediagoblin/mediagoblin-guix/tree/master/item/README.md
Triaging some issues on the @shareabouts issue trackers just because. Shareabouts is brilliant tool for map-based crowd-sourced data collection - we've been working with it for many years. Thanks @mjumbewu! https://github.com/openplans/shareabouts
