Federation of issues and merge requests between Gitea and GitLab instances would be helpful to combine efforts in a rightfully fragmented world of open source development.

is a protocol based on ActivityPub to solve this. If you're interested, join its discussion!

The Starlink satellites have the potential to end ground based (that is comparatively inexpensive) astronomy. This includes degrading the search for hazardous asteroids.

I scheduled another meetup in .
On Thu, 16th May the Vancouver Public Space Network (VPSN) will present their projects around rating the "publicness" of buildings.

They are looking for volunteer web developers. Projects include web services to distribute their findings and allowing others to rate based on five building traits.

The opening hours are working with a prototype server. The Mozilla Things gateway can be pointed at a URL like /way/92406904/opening_hours to get the state of any element. The server will request the element, read the opening_hours tag and determine the current state.

Got the great idea to make every Point of Interest in a .
People could use the opening hours of their library, the happy hours of their favourite restaurant or the sun colour at their loved one's place
for home automation.

Continuing @roller_coaster_challenge, I am adding support for drawing challenge and solution cards.

The cards are generated with node.js outputting SVG strings. For easier styling I will add support for reading in external SVG templates like this challenge card.

In an attempt to finish the script behind @roller_coaster_challenge, I created a track file containing all track pieces for visual debugging.

We learned a lot at #LinuxFest this weekend. Thanks to the conference organizers!

We loved hearing from the audience at our session about #FreedomBox and Personal Autonomy. We also loved learning more about other projects, like @mozilla's WebThings Gateway (shout-out to @jaller94 for his talk about re-claiming his IoT data!)

We can't wait until next year!

The talk "Linux Sucks in Space" by Bryan Lunduke is about to start. It's part of an annual talk series ranting about the shortcomings and benefits of Linux.

A recording will be on YouTube soon.

The compromise of the home server is a great read for everyone interested in , specifically cloud security.

Halfway through Geese Week I still have plenty to build on our browser extension.
The check in page loads data from the server now and all inputs have labels for accessibility.

Next up I have to make sure data is stored in the browser's local storage to avoid losing a user's progress. Implementing our design is last, but it will also have to happen until Friday's internal project demos. Better hurry. 馃弮鈥嶁檪锔

Day 2 of updating the browser extension:
Yesterday I split all code into its own repository. This is also important for others to build the extension.
Did you know: All Firefox extensions must provide code to Mozilla for them to allow it in their extension store?

Today I will make the check in page work. On this page one can update their Objective Key Results () to share progress with coworkers.
The current draft is too bulky, is missing labels and only loads placeholders.

It's Geese Week at my workplace ! The first week in a quarter we can work on a project of our choice.

My goal is to release an update of our browser extension. We already made many improvements but didn't finish a stable release.

Today's goal is to move all code into its own repository.

When mapping in the key wheelchair=yes/limited/no/designated is well-known. There are other features like road conditions, sidewalks, stairs, crossings, tactile paving, kerbs, audible traffic signals and ease of navigation on trails which can be mapped.

Open the settings and choose which "quests" you wish to answer.

has lots of data.

Most of the data is not visible in the default style. Projects like Wheelmap make some accessibility data visible.

I have a research degree in computational linguistics and studied #AI.

Dear MEPs, please believe me that #uploadfilters won't work well enough in the foreseeable future to guarantee freedom of speech if #article13 aka #article17 remains part of the #CopyrightDirective.
