open source software development advice
If you do a thing in an open source project, and you have a hard time doing it because it's not documented, after you finish doing the thing... document it. If the project has a wiki, put it in the wiki. If it has a docs repo you can write to, put it there. Or at least blog about it so search engines can index it.
Please don't leave the solution to languish in a chat log somewhere.
I'm proposing a new version of a metadata document specification for servers in the #federated #web. This aims to collect the good and avoid the bad of the previous iterations, and to be flexible enough for a large part of the federated web to implement it.
Comments very much welcome, especially from #developers working on the federated web.
As a person who has used a lot of open sourced software for quite a few years. I'll make this statement upfront, I don't mix politics and open sourced software together.
It is literally a waste of time and that time could be spent doing more productive things like improving it and making sure its as secure as possible.

psyche vs. food
2nd day of fasting almost over and only a handful of times was food on my mind.
No hunger feeling at all though, as usual.
Any others here that fast from time to time?
We do a weekly 36h fast and have started doing 3-day ones regularly.
Lets see how long this times one goes on for 😃
For people interested, here is an amazing resource:
⭐ PHP Telegram Bot 0.58.0 was released some days ago ⭐
For anybody updating, please be aware that the logging has been rewritten and it's now PSR-3 ready 💪
Happy coding / botting!

Free yourself, your friends or your community from Facebook when you want to organise and coordinate events with @mobilizon
Free software is free as in freedom, not as in free beer, which is why @Framasoft raises funds through a crowdfunding campaign. There are still 19 days to go to collect the tiny 4.5k€ left, and to fully fund the project.
Want to properly support open source as a company?
Then you really should have a look at Tidelift!
Got one of my projects supported and it really motivates maintainers to keep their packages up-to-date and top notch 👍
#Mobilizon is aproject to develop a free/libre and federated tool to get off facebook events.
donation challenge is already 3/4 reached, you can help push it and contribute to further development by donating
Telegram, privacy, PSA
So, with the new Telegram update, a lot of people have had their contacts suddenly have their names replaced with their phone number. This is because "who can see my phone number" has been added as a privacy setting, and for some reason it defaults to "my contacts". I suggest any Tele users to set that to "nobody".
#JoinMobilizon : on approche des 20 000 € collectés ! Un grand merci pour votre soutien <3 <3 <3

ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.
Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)
I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)
