@Blort @yunohost Does Yunohost have plans for supporting an email server?

And, is LiberaPay still working?

@njoseph @Blort YunoHost includes a full email stack in the basic setup, yes

@finster @yunohost

Yes, @Liberapay is alive and taking donations. They're transitioning to Stripe and PayPal from their old payment provider.

Rumors of their demise are greatly exaggerated!

@finster integration of Paypal is under work at the moment and thus, not yet available. Alternatively, Stripe integration is functionnal.

@Liberapay @finster stripe looks difficult at first glance. Dont like paypal but, as there ist no alternativ yet, maybe the way to go...at the moment.

@blort @yunohost @ajroach42 Not dead (yet), but between financial processors, so currently unable to operate.

@ajroach42 @yunohost

Nope. They're just switching to other payment providers. That's all. They got cut off from one payment provider and now they're switching to using stripe and PayPal. You can follow them and read more about it over at @Liberapay .

☝️ This thought by @Blort is on point:

"All the #distributed, #federated #webapps in the world don't matter if they're prohibitively hard for people to run (ie #selfhost!).

That's how most of the world's #email ended up owned by #Google and #Microsoft."

@Blort @yunohost Do you also have a bank account where I could transfer money to?

@dosch @yunohost

Just to be clear, I'm not affiliated with beyond being an enthusiastic fan and throwing a couple of small grammar fixes on their English translations.

I do see that others have managed to make donations on already though, so I'm sure this is a temporary glitch.

Any advice @yunohost ? Y U No want our moneys? 😜

@Blort @dosch Following the troubles on Liberapay's side with their payment processing service, we probably need to configure a Stripe account. But not sure we can do this as long as we are not a legal entity ...

@yunohost ah, clear. And using something like Patreon, is not an option?

@yunohost @dosch

I think you can. If I remember correctly I even set one up myself personally a while back.

@yunohost @dosch

I checked for you with Stripe support... In France you *can* set up a Stripe account as an individual / sole proprietor.

So please get set up so people can give you money... Please? :go:
