Git is kinda hilarious, tbh.

They want to allow writing subcommands as whatever, including as shell scripts. So they add some helper subcommands.

But what if your shell doesn't have a `getopt` (not that getopt is good)?

Well, they decided they'd need something for that. And apparently they didn't want to make it its own subcommand, so they stuck it in...

git rev-parse

Yes, `git rev-parse --parseopt` can be used to parse arbitrary options and prints posix sh code to set variables. They put this in the command that was originally meant to give you a sha for a revision description like `HEAD~~~` or `develop^` or `pr@{5 minutes ago}`.

Guessing because that already had not just `--show-toplevel` to give you the top level directory of the repo, but also `--show-cdup` to allow your shell to `cd` into it.

European skateboarders performed their tricks at the 🇪🇪-🇱🇻 border, proving that borders in the #Schengen area only exist on maps.

Would you be willing to let your landlord go through all your personal belongings, every single day, selling what they learned about you in return for free rent?

If not, then don't let Google do the same thing for "free" email.

More than 80% of marine litter is plastic. This impacts not only the marine environment, but our health too.

Our goal is to reduce the plastic waste in our oceans by 50% and microplastics by 30% by 2030.

Ouverture de l’offre publique FTTH FDN 🥳 🍺 🍾 🎉

Le 26 mars 2022, lors de l’AG FDN, nous avons décidé de l’ouverture de l’offre publique FTTH FDN via la collecte Kosc-Ielo.

Tout n’est pas encore parfait au niveau des commandes de lignes et nous tenons à préserver nos bénévoles au support : nous allons donc procéder doucement 😎

This #article by @solene makes me want to use #OpenBSD more.

What #security does a default OpenBSD installation offer?

So many basic #features; like #swap being #encrypted by default, web browser not being able to access my documents, server software running under #chroot seems like a common sense; but #Linux distros don't have them; at least not by default.

It requires many steps to be taken to set these up. But OpenBSD has them by default.

Secure by default. Nice. 👍
