#lazygit is a fancy #terminal interface for #Git.

lazygit greatly simplifies complex Git tasks through a familiar and readable interface. Simple actions like pushing and pulling are done in a single keypress, with branching and commiting done in a few keypresses. lazygit greatly assists in complex operations like rebasing, where commits can be looked over and attended to in seconds.

Software Freedom Conservancy (@conservancy) launched an campaign which I fully support: #GiveUpGitHub

The first toot isn't very informative, but I'll link to it anyway as it is the start of a thread, which is worth reading:
mastodon.technology/@conservan

LWN article: lwn.net/Articles/899530/

"a broader conversation [about the ethics of AI-assisted software] seemed unlikely to alter your [SFC's] stance, which is why we [GitHub] have not responded to your [SFC's] detailed questions"

Says it all.

#Copilot is basically selling code that other people wrote, without providing them with any compensation nor credits, and disregarding any possible license incompatibilities.

And #Github will probably get away with it because the whole thing is "AI-curated", so no human purposefully violated any intellectual property.

What leaves me speechless is that Github is making so much profit out of other people's open-source code, and they also claim that in a couple of years "there will be no more code sitting on local machines", but they are very, very wary from releasing THEIR own source code (like Gitlab and Gitea did) so people can run their own instances.

I'm still on Github because that's where all the devs and projects are. But all of my projects are now on a self-hosted Gitlab instance, mirrored to Github (and I'm even considering dropping that mirror). If you don't want Github to get rich from your code while giving you nothing in return, you should probably do the same.

Something a bit different today...

There's a really nice Fediverse admin on here called @stux who provides lots of free decentralised public services (public instances of Mastodon, PeerTube, Pixelfed, Matrix, Nitter, Invidious, Searx etc).

Stux is spending hundreds of euros a month so that these services remain free and operational.

Apparently Stux has had a tough time finding work recently, but has their own small business which provides web hosting.

If you're looking for a small indie hosting provider, this might be a really good choice as the money raised will help keep the Fedi going too:

➡️ stuxhost.com

(I'm sorry to embarass you Stux, but I think you deserve a shout-out for the good work you do!)
