Today at 2pm ET/6pm UT: instead of licensing or copyleft this week, we'll be discussing how to dismantle systemic racism in free software. #conservancy on freenode, https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2020/mar/12/virtualchat/
#FOSDEM is only 2 weeks away!! We have three talks this year, all on Sunday: Crossing the Bifröst (https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/matrix_bridge/), P2P Matrix (https://fosdem.org/2020/schedule/event/dip_p2p_matrix/) + Making & Breaking E2EE (https://fosdem.org/2020/interviews/matthew-hodgson/) on K building main-stage at 4pm: please come (even tho it’s late!)
We're hiring for my team at work. If deployments, release engineering, CI, and CD are your kind of thing, or you just want to be radical and help humanity have access to and freely share in the sum of all knowledge, consider applying.
Are you a software engineer who cares deeply about CI/CD, code review, and development environments? Apply to work with the Release Engineering team (a part of our Engineering Productivity team) at the Wikimedia Foundation!
Was thinking about the problem of accidentally using dependencies that have incompatible copyright licences in my free software projects. Avoiding that tends to be tedious work, and, worse, needs to be updated whenever the licence of any direct or indirect dependency changes.
So I thought: can this be automated? I think the answer is "maybe, at least partially", but I'd need a tool to check licence compatibility.
svaksha - [email protected] - Just a gentle reminder, none of the major political parties are carrying on the mantle for Kashmir/Nagaland/Assam etc.
None of them are mobilising their cadre to continuously holding shows across nation against NPR/CAA/NRC.
None of them are even seen anywhere close to abolishing Aadhar or maintaining citizens data privacy.
They only want your votes and taxes. They don't care!

svaksha - Gargron - So the cool part about Mastodon, right? You don't need to be on the same domain as other people to talk to them. You can sign-up on or invite your friends to:
And many others, and still be able to talk to the world / follow your friends on mastodon.social and vice versa.
Please help those servers grow by spreading the word about them! (And if you are interested in starting a new server, you can do that too!)
Rare non-ed(1) related retweet from birdsite re. introverts/extroverts
"People always tell introverts to be more talkative and leave their comfort zones. Yet no one tells extroverts to shut up to make the zone comfortable."
