New blog post: Self-registering functions using macros for C++ test libraries https://blog.rubenwardy.com/2019/02/17/cpp-self-registering-test-macros/
I think the most interesting part in this chat is that "FLOSS proponents ditching the latest and greatest technology" and their comparison with retrocars enthusiasts. It's quite interesting how "using the latest technologies" started meaning "using technologies copyrighted by big corporations which not giving a damn about your privacy".
Three months ago I joined this instance but forgot a proper #introduction with hashtags and all that fancy stuff, so here it goes:
I am a computational linguist passionate about #linux and #emacs. I like #foss in research and often talk too much about the importance of os and #openData in academia and education.
I like #minetest l4d2, terraria and honestly too many games.
I study #AI and like to talk about sensible implementations of it and its future, also very into #linguistics

Hi #foss #opensource people! I have a mobile app which is rated as PEGI-3. In the app there is a content store which allows you to download mods. By default, "mature" content is filtered out in the app. There is a setting in the advanced settings menu which allows you to show mature content, but isn't directly advertised as such. Does this violate PEGI-3? The content is user-provided but moderated. Mature content includes horror, gore, and drugs
Hey, I'm wondering what the #opensource chatroom software of choice is for the people here! I'm looking for something with usability and features rivalling Slack and Discord. Whilst I like IRC, it scares people a little. Any suggestions?
Hey #foss people! Does anyone know the legality of having some form of content rating on a mod store? I run a mod store where people are starting to add mods which contain things like drugs and excessive violence. What's the best way to allow inappropriate content to be hidden and not fall foul of the the law? #freesoftware #legaladvice
