Von den meisten kaum bemerkt, wird das Open Source Learning Management System ILIAS laufend in Sachen #Barrierefreiheit verbessert. Aber diejenigen, die dringend darauf angewiesen sind, wird es freuen.
Einen schönen Einblick in die Communityarbeit zur Barrierefreiheit gibt's unter dem folgenden Link der FH Dortmund:

While the #GenAI news cycle keeps announcing new models, cost and evaluation continue to be crucial for both developers and businesses.

This post showcases #OSS tools that help evaluate models while keeping costs low. We include Prometheus by KAIST AI; @MozillaAI's very own lm-buddy; and llamafile.

Davide Eynard @mala shows how these components can work together to evaluate LLMs on cheap(er) hardware.

Thank you, dear #Oss #developer!


Today more companies are announcing their support of the Valkey community (the group that includes committed developers previously working on the OSS version of the core Redis engine): Aiven, Alibaba Cloud, Chainguard, Heroku, Huawei, Percona, and Verizon.

Now on stage for the morning #OSSummit keynotes, core team member Madelyn Olson to speak about the new Valkey community effort.

The walk-on music: "We are never ever getting back together" by Taylor Swift. 🤣

Love it!

If there is some #dotnet developer interested in #GTK4 bindings, dislikes warnings like me and has some spare time to support a small size #OSS project feel free to stop by at github.com/gircore/gir.core

There are literally thousands of warnings to fix. The good news is that almost all of them are due to generated code. So a single fix could get rid of hundreds of them.

Come by to scratch that itch.


Have you seen @nextcloud AI Assistant 2.0?

You can now chat about your own documents and data, use GPU acceleration, transcribe audio with Whisper, use your own LLMs, and a ton more integrations and new features.

All #open-source 😀

Boosts appreciated 🙏

How it started: "This change has zero effect on the Redis core license, which is and will always be licensed under the 3-Clause-BSD."

How it's going: "Beginning today, all future versions of Redis will be released with source-available licenses. Starting with Redis 7.4, Redis will be dual-licensed under the Redis Source Available License (RSALv2) and Server Side Public License (SSPLv1)."

It is really terrific to hear about the great work on #OpenSource being done by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It was terrific to learn about the work of @jakerella work & about the adoption of #OSS in #DigitalGovernment.

Great to see government agencies setting up Open Source Program Office #OSPO & beginning to change the culture around buying, building and sharing code. All this helps broader goals towards government transparency and #OpenGovernment.

Nach #SR-Berichten über Chaos beim Datenschutz für den Schul-Messenger #OSS im Saarland hat das Bildungsministerium Fehler eingeräumt: sr.de/sr/home/nachrichten/poli…. Es ist gut, dass die gemachten Fehler eingeräumt werden aber es ist mir nach wie vor vollkommen schleierhaft wieso hier überhaupt auf eine Eigenentwicklung gesetzt wurde. Warum nicht von Anfang an freie Software? Mit @matrix existiert doch schon seit Jahren eine entsprechende Lösung. Was soll(te) dieser Alleingang? #PublicMoneyPublicCode


Holy shit.

That is a masterclass in how to _not_ handle accessibility request in #OSS.

Prusa needs to do better. Frankly, probably all #3dPrinting tools need to be better, but how this was handled is egregious.

The one positive takeaway was the reference to See3D in the issue thread. Glad I found out about that as it seems like a good organization.

Hey Fedi! We're hosting a panel at SCALE 21x with some of the major players in the Linux desktop ecosystem to discuss where we go from here, any big ideas you want us to discuss?

Here's our list as of now: outline.fyralabs.com/s/8f1ce88…

And the abstract: socallinuxexpo.org/scale/21x/p…

Post your ideas in the replies!

The #EuropeanCommission is finally considering whether "#OpenSource software (#OSS)…can be used as a foundation for developing the new #publishing platform" for EC-funded #OpenAccess research.
op.europa.eu/en/publication-de…

Unfortunately, the new software would merely "underpin" #OpenResearchEurope (#ORE), not replace it. ORE is proprietary software owned by #TaylorAndFrancis. When the EC called for bids on ORE, it did not require open code despite many calls to do so.

What's the best thing about #LibreOffice? The software's pretty awesome, sure – but so is the worldwide community behind it! Learn what they did last year, and join them: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl… #oss #foss #community


Congrats to the 338 people who contributed to the #LibreOffice project in May! 🎉 Here's how to get your sticker pack – and there's some bonus merch too: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl… #foss #oss


100% agreed that the CVSS scoring system and "assume the worst" guidance makes for scores that do not accurately reflect importance. Especially for very broad-use things.

My take on this is that. like it or not, more open source projects of note need to become "CNA" (certificate numbering authorities) of their own which I understand can given them some control over the content of CVEs filed against their project. cve.org/ProgramOrganization/CN…

Hello Fediverse 😀
We are starting this account for Qt Project related communication, events, and many more things.

Did you know that there is a simple page that gives you the instructions to contribute to Qt? and also you can get some nice plots to see the activity on all the repositories!

Very excited to have shared this morning at @fosdem that @osi has joined the Digital Public Goods Alliance ! and is supporting this important initiative's mission of creating a more equitable world through OSIs activities of education, advocacy, and sustained care of the OSD. #oss is treated as digital public goods and is recognized in it's registry. Fantastic way for OSI to kick off its 25 year anniversary! blog.opensource.org/osi-joins-…
