Great news! The #Gajim team is working to get voice calling working again:

If anyone has #voip, #xmpp, #opus, #ice, #turn know-how, I'm sure they'd appreciate the help. Hint, hint.

> At one point, the company had even offered $5 million in gift cards to Brazil and Peru, the ACTO member states who originally filed the complaint, to no avail. 🤣

More #NLUUG fun. A Microsoft talk: "VSCode has become one of the more popular code editors. Who here uses it?" In an audience of 100 people, nobody raised their hand. Someone commented "I tried, but I didn't have enough RAM".

GDR! boosted is a nice-looking, instructive, thorough, yet concise guide to how to interact with a git-managed project that accepts patches via a mailing list rather than a web interface.

It's just five pages, but has everything required to get you contributing to git, Linux, Postgres ... and it includes its own sandbox project and mailing list for you try things out on.

Back when the GNU project was starting, among the first things they rewrote as Free Software were:
- text editor / IDE (Emacs)
- assembler, linker, and compiler
- make

IOW, they made tools that they needed to further develop Free Software without relying on proprietary tools.

They wanted their project to be self-hosting.

Nowadays, we have more free software than ever, but we develop it using github and Discord...
