I really hope #canonical is watching the situation closely and will come to the right conclusion. Locking down a #foss project to implement more effective monetization does not grow your business. Mark Shuttleworth's #ubuntu promise was exactly on the right path, and i wish it would make a comeback in #ubuntu's marketing. https://programmerthoughts.wordpress.com/2009/04/08/the-ubuntu-promise/
There's a quite clever new appimaged code execution exploit.
* Attacker crafts file that is both valid AppImage and valid MP3
* appimaged user downloads MP3 file
* appimaged scans the ~/Downloads folder automatically for appimages and extracts the desktop file from the malicious AppImage/MP3 file
* Missing name sanitization allows one to overwrite arbitrary desktop files of other applications
=> payload execution when user starts overwritten desktop file

Frontex is complicit in illegal Greek refugee pushback operations: "breaking the law has become an everyday occurrence at Europe’s borders, and the EU is allowing it to happen".
Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA. https://github.com/github/dmca/blob/master/2020/10/2020-10-23-RIAA.md
youtube-dl was taken down by RIAA via DMCA. You know, the one that was archived here:

Hey #fediverse, is there a Newpipe-equivalent for the Linux desktop?
I'm happy to announce a project I've been working on for a while now:
#OpenCuts, the open crowdsourced user testing suite
OPEN-CUTS is a web-tool to help #OpenSource communities with user testing! The goal is to allow even inexperienced users to easily report test results for new software releases. OPEN-CUTS then aggregates and compares the metadata across versions to identify regressions.
