And so it appears that #FontAwesome v5 can't be distributed with #Debian anymore because they don't provide source files and build process since their latest update. Making it a potentially non-free package.
Because of that, some software are missing icons.
So Free Software developers, if you want to be included in Debian and use Font Awesome, you should probably switch to #ForkAwesome. ;)

@andreipetcu Thanks for the link. I was unaware of the sandbox. It doesn't make DRM OK, but it is a mitigation 👍
@andreipetcu @shellkr @ohthehugemanatee "Hardcore paranoid" (besides sounding a bit derogatory) is far from basic respect for user privacy, which is where Firefox used to be. Worse yet, it seems like it's still moving *away* from that position.
It sounds like you're saying that it's unreasonable for a user to expect their browser to stop phoning home even after explicitly asking it not to. That does not seem "hardcore paranoid" to me.
#Google pulls a #Canonical and offers us an opt-out in the next release of #GoogleChrome, (opt-in should be required under #GDPR), of signing us to #Chrome automatically. It doesn't change the default behaviour and most people won't notice the opt-out is there, which Google knows.
Don't forget, this small change was not made when they first received feedback that it's undesirable, in fact they were all over birdsite, trying to defend it.
Don't make the mistake of trusting them ever again.
Contacts removed from Google. That was much easier than the e-mail.
Still can't quite believe they tried to cover up Dragonfly.
@darius @puckipedia i don't think the reason people have problems with crossposters is because they think non-mastodon content is wrong. i think people have problems with crossposters because they're non-interactive—people turn them on and then go back to twitter.
they're not posts made by "real users", they're posts that have nothing to do with this network, reflections of people who half the time don't even know they're being cross-posted.
