Big news in #OpenAccess:

We are currently having a discussion on the F-Droid forum about letting apps toot to the Fediverse. This would be used to share app changelogs, and eventually display comments from the Fediverse inside the F-Droid app. Unfortunately, none of us has experience with Mastodon/Pleroma development, so it would be very helpful if a developer could give some input.

The thread is rather long, so feel free to make a comment here or on the forum and we will give you specific questions we have.

We've been working on making it easier to contribute reviews to @ToSDR. It's not perfect yet, but it's already quite the improvement over the previous process. Try it out now at edit.tosdr.org . mastodon.social/media/enF_FaKz

I really like being able to hover a link to see where it goes, because Mastodon doesn't run it through it's shortener to be able to track which links I click.
