@kde It seems to be working now. For some reason I had to use use my phone's internet to get it to work.

@kde archive.kde.neon.org currently seems to be down. Are there mirrors I can switch too? My system is currently unusable without updates.

Is it possible to have ethical ads?
For example, these ads would have no tracking, no JavaScript, no cookies. They would be based purely on keywords.
Is all online advertising bad?

We're excited to announce that we've incorporated The Matrix.org Foundation: providing a formal, independent, non-profit, neutral custodian for the Matrix standard for decades to come!! We're still bootstrapping the governance; see matrix.org/blog/2018/10/29/int for details

Great news for real-time, self-hosted office document collaboration: @CollaboraOffice@twitter.com and #Nextcloud announce deeper integration with a sharing/comments sidebar, image insertion and more!

Life + 70 years is already an overlong copyright term that suppresses creativity. Forcing it on other countries through trade agreements is a big mistake. eff.org/deeplinks/2018/10/new-

The thing I am most excited about with the Librem Key is its integration with Heads to make detecting tampering easy. It's something that doesn't exist anywhere else and in this deep dive post I explain the technical details. puri.sm/posts/the-librem-key-m

"What is ActivityPub and how will it change the Internet?". Nice post by @jdormit!


(The only thing I'd challenge is the bit about needing lots more users to compete with Facebook and Twitter - I think most active users here would say that the fediverse is doing well already & it doesn't have to become a wholesale Facebook/Twitter-slayer for it to be good and useful! I think in general we - I'm guilty of it too - spend too much time focusing on & comparing with them!)

Hi all. We're aware of the SET antifeature, and yes, it's a bug.

More details and progress here: gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver

Psst... don't tell anyone, but we just merged Python 3.5/3.6 support for Synapse into develop. If you want to help us dogfood & report any last utf8/byte issues (knowing that it might explode and/or format your cat), then git checkout develop! github.com/matrix-org/synapse/

I wish "uses too much memory for what it does" was considered a bug by more programmers.

@renatolond since Github won't let me make a PR against your fork of Mastodon (because the base project names are different), you might want to merge this commit github.com/friendcamp/mastodon

The "Boolean" trick there doesn't actual cast correctly because it's looking for {true: foo, false: bar} in the object rather than {0: foo, 1: bar} in the object. (I suppose you could have done "+Boolean" to get it to work as well but I used a ternary instead)
