@cj I understand why they did it (the UK not exporting back to them) but as always it's 'side effects' make the whole policy a lot more murky.
@anna PeerTube can now do it and distribute the load, be it with a delay https://framablog.org/2021/01/07/peertube-v3-its-a-live-a-liiiiive
To be fair the Go team learned a lot about how to engage with the community and recent proposals have reflected that.
If we never acknowledge that people change for the better and continually bring up their past transgressions what motivation is there for them to change for the better?
Single source isn't entirely accurate as there's a GCC frontend, but it is a problem especially given the need for a CLA when contributing.
Rust is controlled by Amazon, Microsoft etc. atm.

That's one thing Anand Giridharadas is right about, that today's 'activists' have been willfully misled by capitalism to believe that they can both, get its spoils, (previously only attainable by commercial tycoons), and do good work
I mean, we are already sharing compute resources between our fediverse instances with little to no accountability as to quotas or resource management between us. if we formalized and generalized the setup, even in small pockets, there could be some very cool knock-on effects I'd suspect.
there's part of my brain that says that the federated distributed MMO that @cwebber is working toward (and beyond) and the underlying tech will also add some interesting dynamics into the possibilities here - what happens when we start to share secure object capabilities with each other that allow for some subset of arbitrary computation rather than something much more limited in application and scope?
So, who had "SCO Lawsuit vs. Linux returns" on their "plagues that will return" bingo card?
