I just got around to gathering up my recent toot threads about how several of Rhapsode's dependencies work & little editing it to publish more permantly:

Next I'll discuss how a few more parsers work, followed by some parsing frameworks. I'll put those on that page too.

With the #Pinephone's current short battery life, and no major improvement in sight (that I know of), it seems like a good idea to purchase a backup battery. Having to take out the whole back cover is a hassle though.

I just found that @PINE64 supplies the CAD file for the back cover in STEP format! I would like to have a cover with an integrated door, think TV remote.

Imagine there existed a cooperative dedicated to bringing GNOME forward, and its members worked full time on polishing the ecosystem.

If the designers and engineers announced their projects, and a communication team kept you posted of progress.

Would you throw money at it? And how would you contribute?
