Aside from my trust to Manjaro and Arch repository maintainers, I think it is a wise idea to be safe than sorry and be pro-active about the situation.

I removed from my home computer. I hope a privacy-respecting fork rises from the ashes of this fantastic tool.

A tale of two IRC networks:

#Freenode: kicked us out of our channels, harassed one of our ops on their home page, made supposedly "draft" policy changes to permit hate speech

#LiberaChat: participated in *our* forum to address questions about governance and non-profit structure and asked for feedback on improvements: <meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php>

Hmm 🤔

Save the date! Following our webinars on #ActivityPub and #openhardware, on June 21st we bring together #NextGenerationInternet projects working on Linked Data (and other forms of metadata). We are excited to have for example @pukkamustard talk about openEngiadina & DREAM, showcase the awesome low code app dev solution Corteza (and its upcoming JSON-LD support) and many more awesome (semantic) projects! -> nlnet.nl/events/20210621/Linke. As always, no signup needed, just join :)

I do want a Linux phone. That's why the only thing I want is a good battery management but I completely agree with this post.

As a owner of a pinephone I would say there is a lot work to do. I prefer a stable system at the moment instead of apps.

Well, I am done for today. Developed my github page a lot. Instad of looking only text based, I put lots of graphic elements and link text so they can get the app. Visit my page if you want.
See the commit at the end of yesterday and at the end of today to see the big difference. I am tired. Peace

It appears Freenode performed a hostile takeover of our officially-registered IRC channel.

We have moved to @liberachat. If you use IRC, please join us there.

Currently using a device with on it. I've been thinking about purchasing a and running as a distro on it. But I am still skeptical whether it's worth the investment.
