Huge thanks to @mattj and @ralphm for their time today. I'm delighted to be getting acquainted with leadership at @xmpp – there are _so_ many things we can learn from each other and collaborate on.

It's free, open, federated communications versus the forces of centralization and proprietary walled gardens!

Please take this survey about AI/ML and Fedora. We know that this is a sensitive subject, so the Fedora Council spent time putting a survey together to understand what our community thinks about this area of technology.

Last day to take the survey is July 31.

What? TWO new good first bugs have been opened in the #Matrix #Rust SDK repository? Is this Christmas?

Good luck, and don't hesitate to chime in / ask for help on Github or our Matrix channel matrix.to/#/#matrix-rust-sdk-d… :blobcathug:

I would love to encourage y'all #GUADEC attendees to use the "Download" button from the event's Indico platform (that button is in each event's details page) to use it directly in #GNOMECalendar, but… it turns out that you'd run into this silly timezones bug where the event importer dialog considers UTC times to be the local time 🤦

So… can I motivate someone to send a merge request for gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-c… ? This would be timely for #GNOME's main conference next week 😉

I promised myself that I wouldn't return to this, but the maintainer of #PyNose while "leading a busy life" found time to grace us with a "post-mortem" to the "license confusion". Do I have to point out that it just keeps adding insult to injury?

Some interesting things we learn:

• we "mainly came from Reddit and 4Chan."
• "Certainly looks legal if Microsoft can do it."
• or maybe not… "even big companies can get licensing wrong sometimes."
• …and in general, past actions of Microsoft justify everything.
• he's the hero "who fixes unmaintained Python packages that businesses still depend on", while we're all the villains.

In the end, the biggest issue remains. The guy's so full of himself that he still didn't realize that license wasn't the real problem. The problem was that he was a complete asshole about it, and this "post-mortem" proves that he still is completely incapable of self-reflection.

• […] "pynose will continue to be shipped with Linux distributions around the world."

I wonder why would we want to do that, given that he already banned people participating in the original thread from reporting bugs.

Oh, and I love these colorful wallpapers (amazing work from @jimmac yet again!). They pair so nicely! I didn’t have to download anything to change up the look—each screenshot was just two or three clicks.

My favorite new thing by far is accent colors. It’s so nice and refreshing to be able to really change the feel of your computer with just a few well-defined options—all while not introducing a massive burden to third-party app developers.

I’m most excited to see more apps incorporate the accent color in interesting ways, as it’s a great way to pull the user’s preferences into the app.

I’m really loving what’s coming in GNOME 47! It’s shaping up to be such a good polish release, and it keeps getting better. Huge props to all the folks who’ve been plugging away at the design and entire stack this cycle.

I'm looking forward to meeting up with folks next week in Denver for them to share more about their work this cycle and to hack on any last touches—plus planning what’s next. Join us in-person or remotely! guadec.org

Nice!

But, and please pardon me for perhaps a stupid question...

Under "non-qualifying vulnerabilities" it says "Everything not in the qualifiying vulnerabilties list[...]".

But the last entry under "qualifying vulnerabilities" is, and I quote the list entry in full: "Other".

What gives?

@swick that's great thanks. But just to be clear, there is no system tray in gnome at the moment? There are extensions yes but it's not built into the distro. I understand it's important to be patient with #opensource but it's been a while already

The annual Tidelift maintainer survey is open for responses. It gets cited *all the time*—there really aren't many other sources for understanding of why maintainers do (or don't do) the things they do.

So please circulate widely in all the places you and your #opensource #FOSS maintainer friends hang out.
