need #help with federation testing:

when I look for in the search bar in Mastodon, I don't see anything. But the Mastodon server requests and is served the activitypub json.

What am I missing? Does anyone know? Boost if you think your friends might know.

(That's a throwaway account for this example; don't bother following it)

This might be too niche a question, but are there open source projects that use Go and seem accessible to beginners?

To all GNU project members past and present. I want to hear from you. Please email me.

subtoot: if you have a personal website on which you post any sort of creative work - essays, photos, art, code, designs, stories, whatever - for the love of ghu, put your preferred full name on it in an obvious place. i can't cite you properly if you don't tell me your name.

do you or someone you know have experience / expertise in any of the following: Linux 3.10 + 4.9 kernels on MIPS64, cross compiling linux kernel and userland, Cavium Octeon SDK?

I have needs!

...and (US/western Europe market rates) money! to give this person or persons, so that they may continue to survive in this oppressive capitalist system.

boosts appreciated. please DM me here. I don't care where you are situated in the world, personally.

> If you care about the future of free software, this is the most important time to get involved in the last 25 years.

And if you're worried about being prepared or strategy, I can put you in touch with good people in Brussels!

Do you help run a federated or decentralised service in Europe -- or know someone who does? Please pass this link on. It's the application to meet politicians to discuss how the EU's copyright filters (Article 13/17) will be implemented. I worry about a backroom deal struck between Facebook/Google that excludes the next generation of open Net services: .. Please speak up!

Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.

I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.

Boosts gratefully appreciated.

so who are the artists/activists/engineers in NYC working on decentralized networking (broadly construed—peer to peer, activitypub-esque stuff, mesh networking, gopher revivals, etc.)?

(I feel like I probably know most of them [and maybe even had them as students] but for some reason I can't come up with a quick list)

The fight for diversity, equality and inclusion is the fight for software freedom. Our movement will only be successful if it includes everyone. RMS does not speak for these values.

open source software development is essentially the greatest cooperative mmorpg ever created

What’s a good venue for getting advice on coding style for Rust programs? I have a couple of nontrivial programs that I’ve managed to kitbash together but they are lacking in elegance and I’m pretty sure there’s a better way to do certain things I just don’t know what it is.

What do people like for an iOS imap email client these days? Must be able to handle old school mailing lists (plain text only, > quotation, replies below quoted text).
