For more pan-european collaboration, it would by great if donations to charities in other member states could be tax deductible in the EU country of tax residency...
So if I support @mobilizon that should count, p.ex.

@ldubost
Merci.
Thanks for explaining. Really great development! I was really curious because #france did not have this reputation for such specific technologies before. At least not that I know. Rather new that people were involved in other areas of #foss .
I guess it's also a language issue: we tend to follow news in our native language and then "international" updates in English. This is then biased towards Anglo-Saxon parts.

#FOSS apps that need push notifications get problems: Google wants to force all apps on #Android to use its proprietary service Firebase for push notifications.
That's why we need F-Droid and/or #Linux based smartphone OS without Google. #UBports

Just discovered CryptPad via the FLOSS Weekly podcast. Basically, Google docs without privacy concerns.

CryptPad in their own words:

"CryptPad is a private-by-design alternative to popular office tools and cloud services. All the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us)."

It's also Free software.

Better still CryptPad is on the Fediverse:

🤔 Is there any automated Android backup solution you know?
I am totally willing to pay for that service, as long as the client is FOSS and encrypts my data in a good manner.
Most importantly I want to backup the data on my internal storage, so files, images, videos as my Calendar, Mail, Contacts are IMAP/ICAL anyways.

Would be awesome if you could help me to find something like that!

Unity is coming to linux!

https://blogs.unity3d.com/2019/05/30/announcing-the-unity-editor-for-linux/

It's not libre & opensource or anything but cool to have more stuff for linux natively! I've heard that ableton is going to linux too but can't confirm it yet.

Is there a self hosted alternative to Strava/Runtastic?
Background: There is a company, trying to encourage its employees to do more sports. For that, there will be an optional monthly competition to win something if you reach your movement minimum (walk/run/bike). The employees aren't very tech affine, so it has to be simple on the employee side.
Please share :)

Hi all, what would you use for an online form? I'm going to send out a request for English language editors.

I can code something myself, but if there is something out there that is #FOSS and privacy conscious I'd like to use that group.

This would essentially be a Google forms or survey alternative.
@switchingsocial
 
I mean, sure, #Gab spewing their community onto the #Fediverse is bad and hopefully most of the large servers will just blanket ban them - and I'm pretty sure that will happen as these communities tend to look after each other pretty well in my experience.

But as a #FOSS person, when I see some FOSS people complain that "#Mastodon got forked" I cannot help but wonder whether they even know what a FOSS #license is?
 
I'm *really* not happy about the #Github #Sponsors project (https://github.com/sponsors).
It'll bind a lot of open source project much more strongly to github's closed, proprietary ecosystem if that's where they have any chance of getting some money.

It's so hypocritical that soo many #FOSS projects are hosted on a non-free platform. With #Gitlab there's even a superior just as easy to use alternative there.

And most people are celebrating this move by github 😢.

@switchingsocial @Framasoft @mobilizon if you haven't heard of it, I'm already using this rather impressive #FOSS Meetup.com replacement - https://gettogether.community - for code see https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether (it's built on Django) (usual disclaimer about being disappointed that they use a proprietary chat technology for their community... :( )
 

FOSS manifesto


To make it clearer on what our relationship as an organization is to FOSS (Free and Open Source Software), we recently created a "FOSS manifesto" to act as an additional guiding document for our committee and members. Any decisions, actions or spending of funds should align to not only the association rules but also the FOSS manifesto as well.

Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to MeetUp.com.

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

https://github.com/GetTogetherComm/GetTogether/issues/60

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

Guess who just joined Mastodon 😎 .

We will be posting here news, blog posts, and tricks you can use to create the perfect survey.

Thank you @fosstodon for hosting us! We're looking forward to join the growing Mastodon community!

For those who haven't heard of us before, #LimeSurvey is an online survey software that helps users develop and publish online surveys, collect responses, create statistics, and export the resulting data to other applications. It is a #FOSS written in #PHP which was created in 2003, distributed under GPLv2.

The development is governed at the moment by LimeSurvey GmbH, which was co-founded by the long-term project leader Carsten Schmitz.

We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

#Ledger is an open source command line financial reporter.

Ledger parses and process double entry #accounting journals written by the user. It can then create detailed reports on various accounts.

Ledger isn't a full validator and journal like #GnuCash, rather it is a tool to allow you to verify and overview hand made paper-like accounting journals. This allows for great flexibility.

FOSS manifesto


We're in the process of documenting our relationship towards #FOSS, due to some confusion from some people meeting #Feneas for the first time. We're always had a strong commitment to FOSS, and that will not change. What we want to do is document that as a set of principles that need to be followed by not just this current committee, but future committees as well.

Comments on the draft are welcome, by members and non-members alike!

I am close to having too many irons in the fire - again. commercial work, family and side projects are also eating my time, but I have decided that finally making my website available for others is a good thing to do now. First of all I need to use it for two other projects so it would be a good time to optimize the code. I also want other people to be able to use it - I have talked to other comic artists and the feedback I am getting is that they could use exactly a solution like this. Simple and durable.

There are a lot of things that can be done to improve it. So what is the first thing you do?

You make a logo.

I am pretty sure that this is not the normal order of things you see in most software projects, but you will always do things in your mother language first and I am not fluent in code, I am fluent in images,

I mean, I'm proud to be a person of #FOSS. I wear my #FSF shirt with pride.

It's when I get bashed by the extremists it makes me wonder why do we fight against each other? Should we be working together?

I wonder when #FOSS extremists will realize, like all extremists in society, they are doing more harm than benefit to their cause?

My entire #FOSDEM journey has been worth it with this one brilliant piece of wisdom from Sage Sharp for newcomers:

Ask "what questions do you have" instead of "do you have any questions".

#OpenSource #FLOSS #FOSS #FreeSoftware
 
I start understanding, why people so agressively ignore new technologies in their lifes. It's just they are afraid that new technology is hard to learn or use....

Like my wife installed #fedora to her elder laptop without any of my help, just herself. And she told me that it was way easier than installing #windows. And faster. Truly, #FOSS is the only way that wins in the end :D
