@libreoffice Have you thought about bridging to other platforms like Matrix and IRC?
@swedneck We do that already, for some platforms – for instance, the QA IRC channel has a bridge to Telegram 👍
@libreoffice Nice! Maybe consider bridging to matrix too? 😉
@swedneck Yep, definitely worth considering – although we have limited resources. If anyone wants to help our infra community, that'd be awesome: https://www.libreoffice.org/community/infrastructure/

@libreoffice Please stop using and promoting commercial centralized services.
Threema is not part of the solution, but part of the problem. Like WhatsApps, Signal, etc. these are centralized and prone to surveillance.
Only decentralized systems are a solution: XMPP and (maybe) Matrix.
@kirschwipfel I see your point, but we have to reach out and talk to people where they are. We could completely close ourselves off from Twitter, Telegram etc., but arguably we'd lose a huge base of potential users (and contributors!) We are trying to do more with platforms like Mastodon and Peertube, but if we want to grow as a project and community, I think we also need to reach out to people on other services, even if they're not 100% open...
@libreoffice In this post you are promoting Threma. There is no mention about other, free platform. only Threema.
Not only you are not promoting free platforms - you are not even mentioning them.
How should people ever learn, there are alternatives to surveillance capitalism, if even organizations like the LibeOffice conceal alternatives?!
If you care about our free, democratic society, take your responsibility serious and stop promoting surveillance capitalism.
@kirschwipfel Where are we promoting Threema? We're not even on Threema...
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
