Looks like I missed some updates of the AndroidX Core library 😴 It now contains my fixed version of the MailTo class. So I deprecated the MailToCompat library and updated the corresponding blog post.

I've put together some details for folk interested in working with #Android Firmware (#AOSP, Lineage, etc.) about what the development cycle looks like. Let me know if you find it useful or think there should be changes made.

Head is spinning: now we setup our reproducible builder as a job of itself, just updated (API change in a used library), and the reproducible builder built itself, and the output thereof is exactly the same as one further build step.

Wanting to ask: how reproducible are your reproducible build setups? Do you have written down what the dependencies / a bootstrap thereof looks like (and which packages are involved)? Asking for a friend of a reproducible builder ;)

We moved our chat room from the IRC network that seems to be set on getting rid of its users to Matrix:
The Matrix room is bridged to on @liberachat; for those of you who still prefer IRC.

See you all there 👋

I enjoy listening to GitHub's "The ReadME Podcast" quite a bit ❤️

If you run your own synapse, you can fix youtube url previews like this:

(It'll also fix twitter image previews.)

Today I learned more about Docker and systemd than I wanted to know 🙁

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

I was a bit annoyed that previews of Youtube URLs were kind of broken on my Matrix instance. Did some research and stumbled upon a Greasemonkey script to "fix" it client-side. Made some improvements and ended up with this:

My brain: "Hey, instead of adding 5 lines to this pile of legacy code you could refactor it and finally create proper tests" – Three weeks of refactoring later. "See, that wasn't so bad. Now add your 5 lines over there. Don't bother testing them. That code is trivial." 🥴
