On June 20, an EU committee will vote on an internet-destroying copyright proposal that'll censor everything from Tinder profiles to Wikipedia: https://boingboing.net/2018/06/07/thanks-axel-voss.html
Folks in the EU: European Parliament Members need to hear from you! https://changecopyright.org
By all means, #movingtogitlab-dot-com does not solve the problem GitHub has (centralization), and moving to a privately hosted GitLab re-introduces the problem GitHub mostly solved (separation).
The main problem with Github being bought by Microsoft isn't MS.
It's that in 2018 we still haven't learned that critical infrastructure shouldn't belong to one company ... and that we should avoid building single points of failure.

So people can be super shitty, or grumpy, or bad at managing a community, or just unaware when they are on their bullshit, and that without any other qualifier makes for worse software. For a community project no amount of being a good programmer makes up for the extra work everyone else has to do just to work around you.
@Ubports booth at Ubuntu Party Paris:
There were a lot of interresing discussions, more than what I would expect, for the best !
Wow #convergence , it's a phone that power that screen?📱🖥🖱
Is it a laptop, wait, a tablet? ⌨🖱
Can i install it? 📲
Who is behind it? 💞
(and more... Some technical, some less, such as 'so it's not unity on gnome, right?')
We even installed some phone (the ubports installer is really simple and it just works!) 🤗👌
Bald habe ich endlich eine Mastodon-App auf #Ubuntutouch. 😍 Meine Idee war, zuerst die Weboberfläche zu benutzen, mit der Möglichkeit, sich eine Instanz auszusuchen. Dazu gibt es zwei Qml-Pages in denen man sich eine Instanz aus den Infos von der API von instances.social aussuchen kann, inklusive einer Suchfunktion. Noch ein paar Feinheiten, dann kann ich die App im #OpenStore veröffentlichen.
Purism and UBports officially collaborate to offer Ubuntu Touch on Librem 5
Successuflly unfucked my #OneplusOne. It's a pain in the ass, but this guide to recover from a #hardbrick still works: https://forum.xda-developers.com/oneplus-one/general/guide-unbrick-oneplus-one-t3013732
It's #Windows only, and generally just a nightmare, but it worked. The OEM tool you need is chineese only, so the guide is just like "klick the square button", "choose the entry that looks different". Gotta love low-level #Android hell...
Now let's get #UbuntuTouch on this sucker!
