Watched the last episode of TechOverTea by @BrodieOnLinux , with Georges Stavracas, a great lead dev in Gnome, Wayland, you name it. The amount of shiite and harassment he, and many other FOSS people have to suffer is simply staggering. And no, it's not 'them', it is from the 'free and opensource community'. It's by us. Think about that and let it sink in. We have to do better for them and act, no coffee talk. As a true community.

Heads up for @gnome extension developers: you'll have a bit of extra work on your hands for the upcoming Fedora 39 release, as GNOME 45 is streamlining the way extensions are developed, moving to ESM modules.
If you haven't already, check this guide on how to port your work to the most recent version of the flagship desktop environment for Fedora Workstation!

#GNOMECalendar could really use your help to write unit tests, so that we can use #TestDrivenDevelopment #TDD #CI for #refactoring all timezones-related code and make it reliable. Now is the time!
I chatted with @BrodieOnLinux on Tech Over Tea!
• My #Linux origin story

• #EndlessOS is the secret cabal
• Importance of meeting people behind projects
• #GNOME Design
• Origins of elementary OS & Pop!_OS
• Spicy takes
…and a whole lot more! It was a blast, and I’m sure there’ll be shorter clips in the coming days if the two-hour runtime is daunting. 😅
Ever since doing the initial completion support in #phosh 's osk-stub I wanted to add a generic "unix pipe" like completer. phosh-osk-stub would feed the program preedit on stdin and read the completions from the program's stdout.
That is there now and with that and some more changes I can use @zachdecook 's #swipeGuess to do swipe like typing. To be clear: all the hard work is done by swipeGuess, phosh-osk-stub just piggy backs on it:
I'd love to see more OSS developers linking up with content creators and telling their stories, there's so much to learn from in this interview!
