I still need to polish the wording but if you already have input for me about what is missing, more sources or any other feedback is very welcome.

Our servers are under considerable load as more people are working remotely. Everything is holding up and we plan to spend our next few days ensuring that we can continue to scale. In the meantime we appreciate your patience if we're slow to answer support tickets or issues.

The http://matrix.org server is seeing its highest traffic levels ever today. We’re battling to keep it performant (via incr optimisations to state res and the multimaster support), but meanwhile you may want to run your own server or get one from @ModularIM@twitter.com, @ungleich@twitter.com etc.

Here are some Open Source tools that can help with remote work:

- @CryptPad: collaborative real-time document editing, kanban boards, spread sheets, and more
- meet.jit.si: video conferencing
- www.loomio.org: discussion and decision making

Hey all, we've got a small budget for @moodlenet security/privacy consulting. Would appreciate pointers to anyone with the chops (including # experience) who might be able to help audit our repos in the next few weeks/months 🙂
