Hi everyone!

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 :)


This is how state authorities in Germany try to put pressure on internet sevices (in this case posteo):

It's great. Somehow does not work with social.librem.one. Works fine with other instances.

In the Local timeline I can scroll back two weeks (and longer) but in the Home timeline only 1 (one) day.

Does someone happen to be a member on researchgate.net?

Well, that kind of depends on budget I guess. The reMarkable is the best e-ink device I've ever used and it's very clearly running Linux. It's fairly expensive though, so may not be a feasible option.

Truly awesome list of FLOSS projects for mobile devices (Linux/Android phones, apps, hardware projects):


Free as in Freedom (2.0) by Sam Williams, Paperback, available now. This book is Richard M. Stallman's revision of the original biography. While preserving Williams's viewpoint, it includes factual corrections and extensive new commentary by Stallman, as well as new prefaces by both authors written for the occasion.


I was thinking about buying an older Intel Atom device. But I'd say definitely no, I just won't buy a single core computer 2018.

Of course it should work well together with HP Mini 2140 seems to be kind of a sweet device.

Can someone maybe name a Mini-Laptop/Subnotebook like the Sony P11 Z series (preferably at least five years old models, (8" max 10") with good CPU performance?

I like those P11 Z devices but the intem atom CPUs just do not offer proper speed (@ 1.33).

Does someone maybe have/had a P11 Z?

Just asking about general experiences like battery time, keyboard, screen, etc.

Browser Spyware

I always wanted to read a browser-comparison (analysis) like on this site:


According to that site the following browsers are recommended:
- Qutebrowser
- Otter Browser
- GNU IceCat

Also, if you consider the hints:
- Falkon
- Iridium
- Pale Moon

- Not on the list: Ungoogled Chromium

* Install instructions for the Qutebrowser:

* Otter Browser install instructions:

* GNU IceCat:

I CAN HAZ debug output via: unix.stackexchange.com/questio

So now I see what I have already known -- systemd-resolved completely ignores the Global DNS server, i.e. this:

$ systemd-resolve --status
DNS Servers:

That's great.
