The Debian Project hosts all its development IRC channels on irc.oftc.net and also has a thriving community on irc.libera.chat. The Debian Project no longer has control of #debian on the freenode IRC network. We thank the former freenode staff for their tireless work over many years. Please read wiki.debian.org/IRC for more information about Debian IRC channels.

Work, positive 

Yesterday I got pulled into a meeting to have a sincere and meaningful conversation about how to make a public facing policy doc fulfill all our legal responsibilities while also sticking to our principles and values. We also spent a good chunk of the conversation time discussing how to make sure we were engaging respectfully and productively with a community of which we're aiming to be a contributing member.

Feels good, man. Feels real good.

I've told them to maybe calm down because it's a garbage can, not a relationship. Their system has decided this is a support request and now I'm in a queue. This is the world now I guess. I've declined to have a superficial relationship with a garbage can company so now I have to wait in line to be corrected.

The LED has been desoldered from the board, so that is one fewer blue light to keep us up at night. It is really surprising how much light is produced by such a tiny component.
