We have an Open Collective at
opencollective.com/bifrost-mam

Contribute to this fund raising campaign so we can fund two developers to work full time on this project for one month.

Spread the word so more people know about this campaign.

#Matrix #XMPP #FreeSoftware #OpenSource

We found a missing feature in a Free Software we use and we are taking advantage of the freedom to modify the software. We need your help to make it happen.

#Matrix and #XMPP are two federated/decentralized instant messaging protocols. Both has its pros and cons. #Bifrost bridge is an effort to connect these two protocols. Currently the bridge does not support offline messages for XMPP users, making it unreliable for XMPP users.

The bridge being #FreeSoftware we want to fix this problem by adding support for offline messages to the bridge.

Join our meeting on 4 Nov 2021 meeting 6 PM IST / 12:30 PM GMT meet.fsci.in/bifrostmam if you like to help.

This is the power of free software. Users get the source code so they can fix the problems or introduce features. Also, we can share the modifications with others so that everyone gets the benefit of the development.

If the software was nonfree, this was not possible. We had to beg the developer and even then there is no guarantee that the developer would fix it.

@sonnie sharing his #Outreachy experience with work with #debian

My internships with the Debian js-team has been so eventful and gracefully intense that hardly did I realize 13 weeks are already gone :) . This, of course does not in any way breach the intensity of my involvement with Debian, but rather means I could now take up more general packaging tasks than just those specific to my Internship projects.

OK we found people to work on this, they were part of #Outreachy project and worked with me on adding yarn plugin for apt in #debian. But no crowd funding platforms support payments to Nigeria. Would you know any #FreeSoftware organizations in Europe of US who can help with setting up a crowd funding campaign and then pay them directly?
