Just got an email informing me that the OpenDyslexic font (available from https://gumroad.com/l/OpenDyslexic via https://opendyslexic.org/ ) is now SIL-OFL licensed, so there shouldn't be anything standing in your way if you want to use it in a project.
I'm not dyslexic but I appreciate the scanability of the font and really like the concept overall.
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.

A busy weekend.
Attached is my post to the #FSF member forum on Friday.
Enough is enough.
It's long past time the board exercised their duty under Article VI Section 7 of the bylaws and vote him out. I understand that they have tried before but failed. But by now, his behavior is doing serious harm to the public interest the public charity is chartered to support.
Many other folks have also cancelled their memberships over the weekend.
Studio Ghibli, copyright claims, suppression of derivative works (Twitter boost with CW)
While I was trying to dispute the copyright strike against Lady Eboshi is Wrong, YouTube took it down.
Not delisted it. Took it down at Studio Ghibli's request.
I cannot get it reinstated now. I would have to upload it again. All comments and data are gone.
YouTube's arbitration process for copyright claims is kinda moot if they're willing to take videos down before you've had a chance to argue Fair Use, or even while you're in the process of arguing it.
Anyway, watch it on Vimeo.
Seattlites - my company is looking for a Ruby on Rails dev (though if you're experienced that may not be necessary - I was hired with no RoR experience). We pay well and it's a good group of folks. Would love to get apps from non-cis-men/PoC. Hit me up! https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/sof/d/seattle-full-stack-web-developer/6976676205.html
Aaaaah, I love computers #not

Call for reviewers
Among other things you can do to help the project, you can help us review the work being done by other contributors.
It's open to anyone, and you don't have to commit on anything: if you are interested, create an account on https://dev.funkwhale.audio and send me a message with your username and your areas of interest and I'll add you to the corresponding groups.
If, for any reason you want to stop, you can leave the groups on your own (or ask me to remove you).
When someone submits a contribution and want some reviews, they'll simply mention the corresponding groups. This is where you receive a notification.
Click the link, read the contribution and post one or more comments, if you have any:
- Questions (even, and *especially* questions that might sound silly)
- Improvements suggestions
If you have nothing to say, but want to let the contributor know you reviewd their work, you can also leave a thumb up.
Literally *any* of the above helps!
You don't have to review everything that is sent your way, and are also free to chose which contributions you are comfortable reviewing.
Thank you so much for your help!
