We're hiring a #postdoc to work with @swheritage, @Inria and @MSFTResearch on large-scale #reproducibility in software engineering.
Full details and application instructions at: https://www.softwareheritage.org/2020/07/17/paris-based-postdoc-on-large-scale-reproducibility-in-software-engineering/
We've massively revamped our #SoftwareHeritage #internship offer. If you're a #student interested in #FOSS and its long-term preservation have a look at https://wiki.softwareheritage.org/wiki/Internships and/or let me know. (They are all paid internships hosted by @Inria and co-supervised by me.)
At @SWHeritage we have just crossed a couple of symbolic and yet quite memorable thresholds: we have now archived more than 2 billion unique version control commits, coming from more than 150 million projects. https://archive.softwareheritage.org/
BTW forgot to ping you, but you are now archived! https://archive.softwareheritage.org/browse/search/?q=codeberg.org&with_visit=true&with_content=true
nice brief paper on the potential impacts of #GPT3, in particular on writing endeavors https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11023-020-09548-1 (#openaccess, not paywalled)

Just gave a talk « Towards an #OpenData and #OpenSource Code Scanner for your Open #Compliance » at #OpenComplianceSummit 2020, slides and more info at: https://upsilon.cc/~zack/talks/2020/2020-12-01-open-compliance.pdf
@zacchiro You're optimising your home directory to make the following number as small as possible?
find -maxdepth 1 -name '.*' ! -name . -ls | wc -l
My new hobby: getting rid of as many #dotfiles from my home dir as possible, by either moving them to XDG base dirs (~/.config, etc.) or just removing them (e.g., conffiles for apps I haven't used in 10+ years). I'm doing 10 at a time. I should be done by 2030.
The ratio of active female authors (having contributed at least one commit per year) shows similar stable growth. Both trends are more evident and stable in the 2005-2020 period than in previous decades [4/6]
