Alternatively, you can become a patron at liberapay.com/FediThing

Thanks! :blobcat_mlem:

If you want features added or fixed on the Fediverse, the best thing is to get in touch with the people who make the server type you're on. Most Fediverse server types have an official site which includes instructions on how to let them know about bugs, request features, contribute translations etc.

Here are some official Fediverse sites' contribution guides. Most welcome contributions from all kinds of people, including non-techies:

BookWyrm
joinbookwyrm.com/get-involved

Friendica
friendi.ca/resources/contribut

Funkwhale
funkwhale.audio/en_GB/communit

GoToSocial
github.com/superseriousbusines

Mastodon
github.com/mastodon/mastodon/b

Mobilizon
docs.joinmobilizon.org/contrib

PeerTube
docs.joinpeertube.org/contribu

PixelFed
github.com/pixelfed/pixelfed/b

WriteFreely
writefreely.org/contribute

The Fediverse is made collaboratively by volunteers, which means it's easy to directly communicate with the people who make it. This is a huge advantage over bigger networks, it makes it easier to stay human and humane.

Please think about supporting me in the bills for mstdn.social and other free Fedi services :blobcathearts:

Also, I'm currently learning / coding hard to create a free open source alternative for TikTok/Vine called Goldfish!

Supported or not, I'm gonna continue that awesome project but it most certainly would help a lot!

@biguenique @cambridgeport90 @koherecoWatchdog the main reason was performance and requirements. Gitlab took 3-4 GB of RAM on my server, and it was a mix of several fat Ruby services. Gitea only takes 150-200 MB,way less disk space, and only one service running.

Then there was the fact that Gitlab recently broke git and gitaly now provides its own executable. This is another no go for me: a git server should be able to deal with the vanilla git, not push its own implementation.

Lastly, Gitlab's recent desperate moves towards profitability and its main focus on paying business customers and cloud hosting reminded me that it's bad to use a product made by a company that doesn't prioritize your use-case.

We are going to have a small break for few days. You should all soon get the 3.1.0 release.

We might stop reports by email because it becomes really hard to follow them:

- Too much reports coming from every releases
- Lot of same reports without a way to filter

We are really thankful for your help, but that takes a lot of time to deal with that reports.

The best way to help us to fix issues is to contribute on our #Codeberg repo at codeberg.org/tom79/Fedilab/iss

Thank you!

LB:

OH LOOK, that one thing that my one website predicted was going to happen thanks to UEFI actually finally happened.

The successful deployment of UEFI in the market, with Microsoft controlling which operating systems receive a key that permits it to be booted, poses a potential threat to system- and application-software and hardware development freedom.

It's almost, almost, as if I was on to something when I slam-basted UEFI as being malware in other public fora.

(And, apparently, not just me, as I've come to learn years later. But, like so many others, their voices were silenced as chicken-littles for daring to challenge MS and Intel at the time. But, I digress.)

Pick one thing that you need to do and get it done so it’s off your mental to do list.
