Hello everyone. Please note that we have decided to postpone the Libre Graphics Meeting in Rennes to 2021.
For this year still, we are evaluating the possibility to make an online event, as some have expressed interest in doing so.
Stay tuned. Stay safe. #LGM2020
So remember when I was saying Zoom is a privacy and security train wreck? Apparently, that was an understatement:
“Zoom has ‘rolled their own’ encryption scheme [with] significant weaknesses … [and transmits] meeting encryption keys through China.”
Still no news on #OSD (Open Source Design) clearly endorsing use of Free Software. "Ethical Design" https://2017.ind.ie/ethical-design/ by comparison is a big step ahead by mentioning Free Software in the very first paragraph as a human right. OSD seems not to see a problem in using proprietary design tools when designing FOR "open source". What a pity.
@hergertme builder seems to know nothing about *.sass but everything about *.scss – how can I teach it to highlight both?
Dear #matrix developers. Riot lets me know that "sessions" are not "trusted" as a reason of why encryptions fails. What about letting me know what "sessions" and "trusted" means first? 😖

@xorman While it is technically feasible to change the color-set of GNOME, this is not something the GNOME and GNOME-friendly apps' designers and developers intend to support when they create their apps.
They have created a website to ask for distributions not to change the GNOME default theme: https://stopthemingmy.app/
@tbernard also made an insightful blog post about the scalability of our beloved hacky solutions: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/01/17/doing-things-that-scale/
#GNOME – the desktop environment with the 1GB - clock app… 🤔
@codeberg What about the "berg" in your name? Does it relate to the german word for mountain in terms of "amassing" things?
Hey guys! I just found out you can adjust the kerning when making text in #b3d like in other apps by using the Alt key with the arrow keys. I don't know how long that feature has been in there, but immensely pleased to find it there now. #typography
@opensourcedesign does "Open Source Design" support & encourage the use of "open source" design tools? The manifesto does not clarify this.
FOSS vs. design rant
Watch this talk from debconf19 https://de4df61deef78e687eb1-7fe654f62734b2c8c91ba6b5edb21b0b.ssl.cf5.rackcdn.com/2019_Deb-Nicholson_DebConf_FOSS-governance.webm is so surreal to me. After all experiences I had with a project that is essentially #Debian. So much stuff went wrong there, just liek the video says. In the end the advice Deb gives is to consider paying money for what I contributed?? o_0 (branding and website) I essentially just got shown the door when I tried to tackle certain flaws in the project instead.
FOSS projects too often have no clue about design.
