Hab mir heute aus einer Laune heraus GitLab installiert, hauptsächlich wegen GitLab Pages als Gegenstück zu GitHubs Pages. Plane meine Powerpoint Präsentationen auf reveal.js umzustellen und sie dann praktischerweise mit GitLab zu pflegen und über GitLab Pages zugänglich zu machen. Wird mich noch einiges an Einarbeitung kosten, aber ich finde den Ansatz recht interessant und vielversprechend.

Proof that NextCloud protects its users' encrypted data from admins - it rendered my data unusable after a password "loss"


I had been messing with database users over the weekend and I probably messed something up so yesterday when I tried to login to my NextCloud hosting I was greeted with an error message for my password. Performing a password reset greeted me with the message below saying my data would no longer be accessible after the reset. This is a very good thing because what is the point of encrypted data if an admin can perform a password reset and then login and read your data. I'm always suspicious if a messaging service or hoster can allow a password reset and then you can access your data = means they can do the same for themselves or law enforcement.

If a hoster says to you your data is unrecoverable after a password is lost or reset you can think about trusting them.

So my online data was encrypted and unreadable after I logged in but its not all doom and gloom because the nature of NextCloud is that I sync that data to my various devices. I just renamed that local folder on my computer, did the reset, deleted the online data, and copied the data back into the local folder o... show more

Decentralizing Localizations

App development is already well decentralized, and when F-Droid

introduced metadata localization, we also made it possible to manage
translations and graphics
outside of F-Droid itself. Two tools, Fastlane and Triple-T, even
provide a way to sync those between the app source repo, F-Droid, and
Google Play.

Using Weblate for
handling all
F-Droid localization
puts contributors with expertise in specific languages and how they
should be translated in control of how everything in translated.
Weblate is the place where translations happen, it is the GitLab of
languages for the F-Droid community.

We as a community need to avoid putting too much maintenance work on a
few people so we can keep our “bus factor” high enough to survive all
things that come our way. People often request that F-Droid handle
the localization of their app, but that would c... show more

Mit #KeePass2Android wird das auch klappen.
Aber eigentlich versuche ich gerade, meinem Androiden aus den Google-Fängen zu befreien. Und #KeePassDX (die brauchbarste #FOSS Version unter Android unter F-Droid) unterstützt leider noch kein #WebDAV :mastosob:


 
We've reached a point where we'd like to start #hiring developers to work on the #WriteFreely roadmap 💻 :writefreely2:

This would be remote, contract-based work for now, with a chance to go full-time later in the year (assuming all continues going well). You'd be creating free / open source software.

I'll have more details soon, but especially if you're a #Go / #Golang developer and want to work on a growing #fediverse project, I'd love to hear from you!

Privacy Preserving Analytics

F-Droid always avoids tracking users as much as we can.  We will never

require an account, and we have put a lot of
effort into making it hard
for even the f-droid.org server to track users. We also recognize
that usage data has value. It can be used to help show the level of
popularity, and to provide app developers some feedback on what users
like.

After years of moving totally away from data, including disabling
download counts on f-droid.org , we have started an experiment with
tracking usage without tracking users. We are building upon the
work of
Tor Project
and
Guardian Project .
We have enabled access logging on https://search.f-droid.org and
https://mirror.f-droid.org/ for the initial trial. ( Note: search
on f-droid.org could happen... show more

_aD: Since this wasn't answered to your post: Installing the privileged extension for #fdroid will turn F-Droid into a known source, so you'll no longer have to allow unknown sources.

switchingsocial: FYI: #Fairphone Open, which is not preinstalled, but officially supported by Fairphone, comes with the privileged extension preinstalled.

About your text: I'd switch the adjectives in the very first sentence. F-Droid is #FOSS or #FLOSS, while some apps are just #OSS.

LibrePlanet 2019 wrap-up: Building the free software Utopia....
From the time of free software's inception, with Richard Stallman's announcement of the GNU Project in 1984, community has been a central part of its philosophy: we must be free to choose to share any software we use or create. Stallman wrote, "I consider that the golden rule requires that if I like a program I must share it with other people who like it," and from this point concluded that we must always be permitted to share our discoveries and innovations with others, in order to make their computing and their lives easier and better. Software that is free always has benefits beyond the individual, and the free software movement depends on a vibrant, ever-changing, committed pool of developers, activists, users, and enthusiasts to keep the dream alive and the movement growing.

7 Open Source ERP Systems That are Actually Good

ERP is an abbreviation for “Enterprise resource planning”. ERP systems are used in small, medium and large businesses to do the work that the company needs from day to day. You can think of it as the software responsible for managing the companies activities.

These systems have the word "enterprise" in their names because they do really run enterprises, but for any small organisation starting out an open source ERP should be a first option: to get organised with a low barrier (cost) of entry.

Covered are:
* Odoo
* ERPNext
* Dolibarr
* Tryton
* ERP5
* Flectra
* Axelor

The Latest Tab now highlights good descriptions

In the F-Droid Android client, the Latest Tab is a place for F-Droid

to showcase apps that pay extra attention to communicating to users.
With the upcoming 1.6 release, the Latest Tab will now only show apps
that meet certain criteria. The goal is to point users to apps where
they can better explore what they do only by looking at it in F-Droid.
There will always be privacy concerns around installing apps, so users
should have a good idea about what they install. This as a tool for
the F-Droid community to encourage app developers to put that extra
effort into explaining what the app does to potential users. All apps
will still be listed in Search and Categories Tabs.

So with the 1.6 release, only apps that include all of the following
pieces in their app metadata will be show on Latest:

Summary

Why I Replaced Disqus and You Should Too

When I started this blog, I used Disqus for comments on posts. This was a natural choice: I’d seen sites use Disqus all over the internet, it was easy to setup, and they had a free tier. I happily integrated Disqus and moved on.

Today I have repaired an old laptop using #GNU / #Linux for a poor guy who couldn't afford a new computer.

He bought the laptop many years ago and its hard drive is now broken so much that trying to boot up the installed #Windows 10 was a very slim chance. I am not kidding, it literally took him about 3 hours of repeated attempts to boot up the computer so he could watch videos -- he was extremely patient and kept doing this between his shifts -- I have personally witnessed it at my night shift, he wasn't able to turn it on before midnight... then he had to go to work.

I have brough a few flash drives with GNU Linux today to give it a try and guess what... it worked. The third distro I tried -- #Puppy GNU/Linux -- made the laptop usable again. It runs solely from the USB stick and doesn't need the harddrive. It can connect to WIFI and play videos, which is basically all that the guy needs.

FOSS manifesto


We're in the process of documenting our relationship towards #FOSS, due to some confusion from some people meeting #Feneas for the first time. We've always had a strong commitment to FOSS, and that will not change. What we want to do is document that as a set of principles that need to be followed by not just this current committee, but future committees as well.

Comments on the draft are welcome, by members and non-members alike!

Feneas and SocialHub


We recently reached out to the SocialHub.network admins to talk about helping to run the #forum in exchange for expanding the scope to better fit our focus, ie #federated web more in general than just #ActivityPub (even though it's a big focus atm for everyone).

If you don't know what #SocialHub is; it's a #Discourse forum for ActivityPub discussion, mostly so far focusing on #Pixelfed, #Prismo, #Funkwhale and #Anfora projects. The current admins want to pass the maintenance on due to time constraints.

There has been some heated debate whether #Feneas is the right organization to host this community. If you want to contribute to the discussion, to give your thoughts pro/against, please feel free to do so: https://socialhub.network/t/feneas-handover/511

We're in the process of writing a #FOSS manifesto partially in response to the concerns noted in this discussion.

If this doesn't work out, we'll need to ponder whether we then want to run a separate Discourse instance or do we just ditch the idea of a generic federated web forum for now.

Freedom 0 it's the freedom to use the software every times you want and for any purpose you wish.
Freedom 1 it's the freedom to study the program source code and change it to make it doing what do you wish.
Freedom 2 it's the freedom to share copies of a program with your friends.
Freedom 3 it's the freedom to redistribute modify versions of the program or the modifies you have done to the program so everyone in the community can benefit of it.
