Quick reminder (or clarification) about the workflow on SourceHut

GitHub has trained you to open issues for *everything*, including support requests, asking questions, feature requests, bug reports, and so on.

On SourceHut, you should not do this. We have mailing lists, and your first stop should be a project-discuss or project-users mailing list. Only when you have confirmed that you have a new bug or accepted feature request should you file a ticket on the bug tracker. This prevents clogging up the bug tracker with duplicate or poorly thought-out tickets, and usually gets you better support for your problem too.

Thinking about changing the default permissions for trackers to prohibit public posting to re-enforce this.

Honestly the vibe at HN in the past year or so has become obscenely bootlicker. The capitalist worship, anti-freedom and anti-FOSS, support for China so long as it makes money... it's on another level lately. I should just quit the site, I can't deal with it

@klardotsh @tija I didn't say that they deserve to vanish. I said the world would be a better place if they did.

My sincerest fuckings to the megacorp rank and file programmers, quit your job and work somewhere else already you morally bankrupt pricks

Me: I’m confused, are you getting these when you run Site.js as a daemon?

Reply: No, whenever I use my Linux laptop. Pls help! [another screenshot]

Me: ??! *sigh* *looks at second screenshot* OK, sounds like your hard disk is dying.

First test to produce our own #birdview to collect cartographic data with Could be seen also as a reenactment of actions "to ask about the material #economy behind the data.

Facemasks in the new Gnome store is fun!

But, this is yet another store with merch for a good cause that don't say anything about how their stuff is produced.

Since the clothing industry is terrible, with inhumane, dangerous conditions, even slavery, and terrible environmental impacts, I just don't understand why so many take so lightly on this. Ethical conditions aren't even expensive. I won't support slavery, so I can't buy merch I don't know how is produced.

That's why I love @aptgetshirt.

GIMP has quite a few features that are not very much visible to end-users and sometimes downright difficult to make obvious. Doing basic math calculations in the input fields is one of them. Basically, you can write '2467+7893', press TAB, and GIMP will compute the sum for you. So I did a video about this feature with slightly more details than that :)

We've been asked if we could quickly implement new features in so that it could replace , which has been doing shady things. We can't and we don't want to. Encouraging people to pay for a specific issue to be solved is problematic, it creates bad incentives instead of providing stable funding for the proper maintenance and development of a project. If you still think bounties are a good idea, then you can try to revive

Just have published a quick video about the Vignette filter update and the new Focus Blur / Variable Blur filters in upcoming GIMP v2.10.20 (to be out really soon now). This is a very basic intro for now, all this new stuff clearly deserves a more in-depth coverage!

By the way, I hope the tilt-shift part wasn't too distracting. I think I really had to point out we are talking only about a subset of what the real gear can do :)

Seeking feedback from color blind/deficient people on

A terminal color scheme constrained to be near de-facto standards while providing internal contrast for for dichromats and contrasting text for all colors on both black and white background.

If this works well it can be used as a decent default palette; allowing color vision deficient operators to see contrast in TUIs and syntax highlighting using default colors.
