TWIMC: #Fedora was mentioned multiple times in this talk because its grub package contains hundreds of patches. Sad situation afaics, I hope the developers find a way to cooperate better in the future (which, I guess, as usual will involve hard work for both sides).


FOSDEM 2019 Was Awesome

Just landed back in the states from my first #FOSDEM #fosdem2019 I'll be doing a long blog post on it later but it was great meeting people from across global the #fediverse and #opensource community.

This is one of the features in #Fedora 30; the 5.1 patches mentioned below already got added to the rawhide kernel a few days ago.

Worth watching: Hans de Goede's #FOSDEM2019 talk "Flickerfree boot – Seamless boot for UEFI systems". The last patches for this will be in #Linux 5.1; Grub patches sadly not upstream.

I'm awake! Must be excited like a small child for my very first #fosdem2019

Physically encountered and shook hands with the first FOSDEMer on the trip, and I haven't even arrived in the right country yet! #fosdem2019

#FOSDEM2019 keynote...

Quoting: "In this talk, we will report on where the resistance fails the most and why. Finally, we will make suggestions of where volunteer developers can most strategically focus their efforts to build a world where all can live in software freedom."

WTF. "volunteer developers"? What about full-time paid developers working on free software? What about public fucking infrastructure?

The schedule for the #Decentralized Internet & #Privacy devroom at #fosdem2019 is live 🎉

The work of the steering committee was not easy but very exciting: there were many excellent proposals. Last but not least, the diversity of speakers was improved, thanks to the efforts of everyone involved 👍

See you all next year!

#FOSDEM2019 The Decentralized Internet & Privacy Devroom is going to organize an #ActivityPub round table.
