I’d like to help others make better free and open source software so I’m making this standing offer: I’ll review a project's README for free. If you're interested, follow the link below. If you know of someone who might be interested, send the link to them.

How should success be measured for the free software movement?

In an upcoming #IEEESoftware paper with Chris Lamb, we describe the #ReproducibleBuilds approach to increase the integrity of [#opensource] software #SupplyChains and how that worked out for #Debian.

#FreeSoftware #FOSS #ReproBuilds

I've got one of these now. My job title includes the word engineer and I need to work up to that.

Thanks @liw for reviewing my repository’s README without a charge! The notes provided were on point, your understanding of the problem domain, in this case OpenWRT definitely helped.

Thread 🧵 of 501(c)(3) public charities you can support instead of the FSF, if you care about its mission:

I finished the first full draft of my 2016 NaNoWriMo novel. Years late, and it's only 30 of the expected 50 thousand words. But still.

It's in dire need of editing, rewriting, and fleshing out. Some day.

It's available at noir.liw.fi/ but you don't want to read it.

Be nice to your carpal tunnels. They will eventually retaliate with a vengeance if you abuse them enough.

Centralized systems are vulnerable, evil, or both.

I think I'm going to fail the NaNoWriMo from 2016. Well, clearly I have, it's 2021. My outline has two more chapters, and the text is at 28752 words, so I'm going to miss not just the deadline, but also the word count.

Oh well.

After I have my first full draft done, I guess I'll need to start editing, rewriting, fleshing out, and generally improving it.

Or put it aside, and declare it done.
