The situation at the EU's external borders leave one in doubt as to whether European values mean anything at all.
Back in March, Greece suspended the right of asylum and violated international law according to UNHCR. The rest of the EU tolerated Greece's actions.
Der Spiegel and others report that Greece may again be in breach of international law. The Greek coast guard is accused of illegally forcing refugees back into Turkish waters and then abandoning them. Frontex may be aware, but remains passive.
@almara Qt is a high performance cross-platform framework, there's hardly anything better. However the company behind it is managed by people who lost touch with reality a long time ago.
That said you might not be affected by it and KDE is taking care of it.
As a contributor I am affected, there's no point in giving up my spare time for free only to get my changes a year later.
And for Liri (https://liri.io), Qt is strategic. Waiting 1 year for changes to the compositor is impossible.
@kuketzblog Fazit: Keiner der untersuchten Dienste (Zoom, Skype, MS Teams, Cisco Webex, Wire, LogMeIn) kann auch nur halbherzig empfohlen werden. Aber unsere Kultusminister empfehlen … uh … passend zum Office … 🤢

Microsoft buys NPM
And no, #microsoft is not evil. It's a rational decision they have to make to draw more people to their stuff. Nonetheless, it's another case among countless examples of growing vendor lock-in. Every case in itself is not disastrous, but it will explode in our faces eventually.
Krita receives Epic megagrant https://krita.org/en/item/krita-receives-epic-megagrant/
OSS on GitHub with custom, protective, non OSI-approved licenses. Why would anyone do this? Like sure, it's still better than keeping the code proprietary but why would you only show and not also share? I don't get this attitude. We're also not talking about commercial stuff here, merely hobby projects.
Didn't realize that Discourse is considering adding ActivityPub support.
I think that ActivityPub starts to get really interesting when non-social networking style apps start to share data on it.
I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.
