The irony of GitLab claiming this is out of worry for user-data, right after a widely unpopular attempt to hoard user data is apparently lost on them.
Now this is all coming right after GitLab planned to widely track every user move on their platform.
In my mind, the project's compromised.
OK, banning people based on where they come from is just pure discrimination. #GitLab banning candidates from China & Russia based on the current scare is not justified by claiming to be worried about security.
You cannot discriminate against individuals like this, while trying to claim you're a progressive organization.
Disappointing, but there's Gitea, Gogs... There's no need to prop up a project like GitLab. Now people are starting to resign from the company,
#rustlang async/await is on stable!
One of the biggest blockers in employing Rust for backend microservices, thanks to all involved.
bolivia what the fuck is going on
> A mob led by the right-wing opposition Wednesday set fire to the Vinto Town Hall and dragged socialist mayor Patricia Arce down the street, where they humiliated her physically and verbally.
> During some stretches of an improvised political "parade", she was beaten and pushed to the ground. The mob also threw dirt on her. "If you want to kill me, kill me," Mayor Arce said before the cameras and added, "I am not afraid, I am in a free country."
Donated to #GNOME.
It's obvious that to be a patent troll. one's moral compass has to already be greatly compromised, but going after free software is cartoonishly scummy behavior.
These trolls of course don't understand the whole ideological aspect of free software & that there are people from all over the world willing to chip in to defend it.
They think they're going against some software developers in a basement, in reality they're against a worldwide movement.
They're about to loose.
Wondering why Latin America is in revolt?
From Ecuador to Chile, Haiti to Argentina ordinary people have had enough of rising inequality, hunger, and poverty.
redfish went to Argentina to look at how IMF-imposed austerity and President Mauricio Macri's neoliberal policies have brought thousands onto the streets.
They also uncovered how a U.S. backed resurgence of Latin America's right-wing is destroying the environment and threatening the continent's natural resources.
UN expert on torture sounds alarm again that Julian #Assange’s life may be at risk
“..this case [is] about making him pay the price for exposing serious governmental misconduct, including alleged war crimes and corruption. Unless the UK urgently changes course and alleviates his inhumane situation, Mr. Assange’s continued exposure to arbitrariness and abuse may soon end up costing his life.” N. Melzer, Special UN Rapporteur on torture

It already means that GTK4 will be ready for phones, which is huge, I don't necessarily see Samsung jumping on this anytime soon, but a Raspberry Pi 5 sold as an official phone kit w/ case, modem, screen all included similar to their desktop kits, getting into schools, on TV and into magazines, offering compelling performance at an affordable price...maybe even #Huawei jumping in with super polished hardware now that they're locked out of the #Google ecosystem?
The future looks interesting...
Yes, the #Librem5 doesn't have have modern hardware, yes, it's expensive for now & yes, Purism has made missteps along the way, but I am still eagerly waiting for mine, because it's been 12 years since the original iPhone and I'd say that's enough of a head start for proprietary software. Once there's real hardware to target, free software will catch up quickly & that will make hardware OEMs consider it, springing up more compelling hardware, eventually, but for now we can't be very HW picky.
