With regards to the npm malware fiasco; I don't think it shows a particular flaw in FOSS, the same thing is bound to happen when a proprietary software gets acquired, leadership of the company changes, the profits aren't what they used to be etc.

I do however think FLOSS users need to seriously step up their funding game.

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
