#Gitlab Inc sponsored our work of maintaining a native #debian package of gitlab server software for last 6+ years.

This work made setting up / self hosting gitlab server just running `apt install gitlab` on a debian server.

Now they stopped this funding. We thank them for their support till now and looking for support from the #FreeSoftware community to continue this work.

Is #Strategy for #FOSS?

Taking a strategic approach to software development projects. Have a vision, outline strategies, create a plan, act on it. Does it happen in FOSS world?

Searching on strategy gives pages full of biz this, commercial that, capitalistic BS.

Would FOSS benefit from being more strategic? There's this concept called #OpenStrategy and it could be adapted, populated with practices that are useful for teams, communities, and the commons.

A #poll to see what you think..

Microsoft's Github Copilot is disregarding Free Software licenses and will be happily selling parts of your GPL code against your will! Woo!


As the author of this article says - free software should be dependant on free software architecture - I recommend codeberg.org as an open-source alternative to Github.
Sadly Github is no longer a platform that can be trusted.

Imagine writing a script and helps to visualize the whole thing for you. That could be the future of . No need to pay for actors, camera, editing, etc. just hints that such a future may not be very distant.

Updated my PR on #loomio with Robert Guthrie's help.

This is to show the existing profile picture as an option when changing profile picture.


The #COVID19 pandemic will go on indefinitely for the exact same reason #OpenSource software has a chronic #sustainability crisis. And the same reason the ongoing #ClimateCrisis remains.

Collective human will could quickly end any of them.
