We have something important to decide about our money. There is the idea to outsource the management of our finances by an external non profit. Its a huge change, so we are asking for your opinion: https://forum.funkwhale.audio/d/161-financial-hosting-at-techcultivation
Feel free to comment with questions and concerns :)
@juliobiason I've been saying this for decades now. Djikstra was straight-up wrong on this one.
While I'm not a professional educator, I have given talks about best practices for programming over my career, and I've found that teaching people low-level programming first (for example, assembly language) and letting them experience the pain of trying to scale that process up gives the right foundation and motivation to introduce higher-level languages and, more importantly, the concepts that they introduced at the time.
I'm a big proponent of this. If you go the opposite direction, you get ... waves hand around current software landscape this.
My computer is not your billboard
I don't consent to downloading, executing or viewing your ads. You are not entitled to my time, my attention, my computer.
I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.
There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.
As you might have noticed the 2.14 version still hasn't made it into the f-droid.org repository.
This is (again) due to failing reproducible builds (https://codeberg.org/corona-contact-tracing-germany/cwa-android/issues/200).
We unfortunately currently lack the time to dig into this, so it's likely that it'll be a while before this is solved.
Maybe someone else could try and figure out what's going on this time?

Check in with #CCTG. Version 18.104.22.168 is now available through our repository as an automatic update!
The update contains not only check-in functionality – allowing you to create as well as check in to events and locations via QR codes –, but also reduces the APK size by more than 10 megabytes, fixes remaining visual bugs on Android Lollipop, and warns users on their home screen if Battery Optimizations are not correctly disabled.
We hope you enjoy this release, stay safe.
Die "LucaApp" macht im Grunde alles, was die Corona-Warn-App bewusst nicht macht.
Personbezogene Daten sammeln, alles auf zentralen Servern speichern, alles als privates Unternehmen mit geheimen Sourcecode händeln.
Von potentiellen Schwachstellen und fragwürdigen Design Entscheidungen in der Kryptographie dazu, mal abgesehen.
Also bitte Brandbriefe schreiben, die das nicht akzeptieren, ansonsten hilft nur nachfragen, ob die App eingesetzt wird und wenn ja, woanders hingehen 😕
