#GNU #Guile 3.0.6 released! 🎉

Among the highlights are the inclusion of a bundled mini-GMP, a new ‘read’ in #Scheme, and various optimizations.

#GNURadio’s Board and General Assembly agree to join the #GNU Assembly as member project! 👏🏽

It’s exciting, and it’s also a great lesson of collective decision-making from a mature and well-organized project.

A big thank you to @cwebber for an insightful look into #ActivityPub and its exciting evolution & future (migrating and surviving content & identities amongst others) during the 2nd webinar on ActivityPub for Administrations!

Also exciting to hear Robert Riemann from the European Data Protection Supervisor lay out their plans to join the #fediverse (Mastodon & Peertube are expected). Important to understand the requirements & expectations of EU-institutions for (self-hosting) new tech.

Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!


This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.

#GNU contributors: consider joining!

#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!

Chris Marusich and @lle_bout write on their journey porting #GNU #Guix to #POWER9 and what it means for user freedom:

The post also explains how they went about porting and what #reproducibility issues they faced.

Last but not least: this work is now merged! 👏🏽

Mes camarades et moi organisons les 17 et 18 mai un atelier sur la #reproductibilité des environnements logiciels, avec 7 interventions de scientifiques et d'admins sys :


Si tu es porté·e sur la #RechercheReproductible, le #HPC ou #Guix, rejoins-nous !

There's a new dashboard page in Cuirass that shows the build status of all the derivations, commit per commit.

There are still too many red circles. I hope some of us will play the new "turn-all-circles-to-green" game.


I did it! I merged #Guix code that includes 4- and 6-year old commits, no less, and that have been rebased a number of times.

It's about using G-expressions all the way down, including for packages. Finishing a transition started 6 years ago, yay!

GNU Mes 0.23 released!

Mes now supports ARM! For development it also builds with @gnutools' gcc-10 and @guilelang 3.0


#bootstrappable #reprobuilds @fsf #gnutools #NLnetFDN

Just fixed a bug by throwing more code at it…


Put this way it sounds questionable, but in this case it’s a step forward that had to be made anyway.
