Announcing the 2nd Vervis federation demo!
1st demo was about federated ticket comments. This new demo is about **federated opening of new tickets**.
If you haven't tried the 1st demo, it should still work, so you can easily do both 1st and 2nd. I don't remove features when I add new ones ;-)
Take a look and leave a comment there (or here) if you have a moment! :)

The website migration is still incomplete too: I've to restore comments and content's web pages need to be updated/adjusted.
We do also need a review of opened bugs and a list of things to be implemented (sorted by priority?).
If you want to help, there's a lot to do! Let's #ReviveChoqok

Happy to announce that my RSS-to-ActivityPub converter now detects MP3s from podcast feeds and makes them into attachments that render directly in Mastodon 2.9.2+
Do you use `pass` as password manager on your machine?
There is an extension to verify your passwords against the HIBP database of known passwords and make sure that your password wasn't exposed during a data breach. (Of course without telling your password apart)
This extension is packaged on #Fedora as pass-pwned.
Brian "bex" Exelbierd wrote an article about it, and how to install it on any other distro on opensource.com:
Boeing outsourced engineering to the lowest bidder, the whole project was past deadline and over budget, 346 people died.

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).
