Everytime I'm seeing people prazing "sending patches other emails" I'm always fascinated on how they totally ignore 90% of the features bought by the "pull-request"-websites and how they have been a total revolution in the contribution UX and project organization and how much easier it is today to contribute to software and that is has bring several magnitudes more people to FOSS

Sure, it needs to be decentralized now but having live before/after and emails/without the progress is indisputable.

Hey Fediverse! Do you use git (or Mercurial or Darcs)? Etherpad? Homebrew? Inkscape? quemu? Wine? Maybe even coreboot?

These are just a few of the projects for which the Conservancy project provides administrative support. The projects rely on Conservancy, and you rely on the projects.

Support the org that supports the tools you can’t do without. They are trying to raise money, and have donation matching for the next ~15k to be raised for two more days: sfconservancy.org/supporter/

OK everybody, we have just 2 days to raise $17k. We have no marketing or campaigns staff @conservancy so we count on you to spread the word. Please help!!

I've finally tester "delta" as a diff pager for mercurial/git and I'm instantly happy about this decision, I really recommend it

github.com/dandavison/delta (super easy to install, just drop the binary in your path and that's done)

Left: less -R, right: delta

While doing my research on copyleft licenses I discovered the EUPL - European Union Public License.

It is compatible with a bunch of other copyleft licenses and is translated into the 23 EU languages (and checked to be applicable in all EU member states).

It does not have a clause about using EUPL'd software over the network, so I ultimately decided against it, but it seems pretty neat!
