#dandelion announcement



GitHub | Translate (posted by @gsantner)

Thanks for your feedback on the previous post regarding app download source.
The results are obvious - 100% of votes for F-Droid.
Well, we expected a high percentage for F-Droid, but this is very clear.

Immagine/foto

Based on the results:

* We won't publish releases of dandelion* signed by our key anymore
* We will wait for F-Droid to build dandelion* and attach the app signed by them to our GitHub page
* This way there will be just one signing key used - for you users - this means you can update your dandelion* installation regardless if downloaded from us, or from F-Droid store
* If you download an *.apk telling a wrong key error at installation, you can be sure it's not done by F-Droid - so don't install
* In the last versions, there was an "secondlion*" apk attached on our GitHub Release page. This one has a different package id and can be installed beside dandelion*. In future updates this won't serve the only purpose - to just allow a second account - anymore. secondlion* will be our dandelion*-fresh/beta version from now on, signed by us, which can be installed alongside dandelion*.
* This will affect all future releases - we won't update or change previous releases
* It's up to you - you can go for the F-Droid release, the faster published secondlion* - or install both

Does this mean the project is dead?
Absolutely not.

What if my current installation came from the GitHub page?
Just uninstall the app, and install the latest build from F-Droid:
https://f-droid.org/repo/com.github.dfa.diaspora_android_12.apk

Who has access to future used signing keys

* dandelion*: Just F-Droid has access to the key

Does anyone have experience teaching Linux to an 11 year old? I've been using Linux for over a decade but I am a terrible teacher when it comes to computing (I get way too frustrated when people don't know what I'm talking about). If you have any advice or links on the topic, it would be very much appreciated.

#HELP !
My mobile phone ZTE Open C under #FirefoxOS seams near his end of life.
I can't imagine to be back to Android/Cyanogen or things like this...

Do you know where it's still possible to buy smartphones under Firefox OS please ?

Reshare would be appreciated :)

Why we don't publish at the Play Store



We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Oh, the things Vim could teach Silicon Valley's code slingers



25 years, eight updates, all gravy

Vim text editor turned 25 late last year – the first public iteration was launched on November 2, 1991, a couple of weeks after Linus Torvalds announced Linux. To celebrate Vim's anniversary, creator Bram Moolenaar recently dropped version 8.0.

****#Pastilda: Open-source hardware password manager****
Pastilda is an open-source hardware #password #manager, designed to manage your credentials in a handy and secure way.
Pastilda works as a #middleman between your #computer and keyboard. It provides easy and safe auto-login to your #OS, bank accounts, mailboxes, corporate #network or social media. Pastilda stores #encrypted passwords in its memory. You can request a particular password at any time by pressing a special key combination on your keyboard.
Pastilda has two USB ports: one for your keyboard, one to connect to your #PC. Your OS will recognize Pastilda as a USB keyboard and a USB flash drive.
The flash drive component stores the encrypted #KeePass 2.x database (.kdbx file) and the KeePass 2.x portable #app as needed. Your real keyboard is now visible only to Pastilda, your PC won’t see it at all.
In normal working mode, all keystrokes from your keyboard are passed through Pastilda to your PC unchanged.
When you need to sign into an account, you switch to “Pastilda mode”. That’s done by placing your cursor inside the login text box and pressing the “Ctrl + ~” key combination. Pastilda will then ask you to enter the master password for your KeePass database, right in the current text box. If the password is entered correctly, Pastilda will decrypt and display your database. You can navigate through it with left, right, up, and down arrows or you can just start to input the name of the entry in your database and Pastilda will display matching variants. Once you find the entry you’re looking for, press Enter and Pastilda will automatically enter the corresponding login and password. If the password is incorrect, Pastilda gives you the option to try again or go back to regular mode by pressing the Esc key on your keyboard.

-----
Features & Specifications
- #Security:
- #Open-source #hardware and #software - you can trust Pastilda
- Never reveals the master key to the host
- Decrypted data stays on board, unreachable by malware
- Usability:
- List text heresummon Pastilda’s menu to any text field
- Compatibility:
- List text heresimulates a common keyboard, so it works with most systems by default, requiring no drivers or client software.
- List text hereworks with command line interfaces, BIOS, etc.
- MCU: STM32F415
- Connectivity: 2 x USB 2.0
- Memory: microSD card slot up to 32 GB
- Dimensions: 20 mm x 60 mm x 12 mm

Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world.



https://www.oxfam.org/en/pressroom/pressreleases/2017-01-16/just-8-men-own-same-wealth-half-world

It's like most people don't think about the consequences when they use Microsoft Windows and Apple products, when they go to Walmart, when they don't boycott companies that lack social responsibility, when they vote for corrupt politicians, etc.

Of course we also have to take into account:
· The financial/banking system (based on debt slavery, compound interests, etc).
· Patents (that is, monopolies granted by the state so corporate predators can hijack technologies that otherwise could be used to produce new cheaper products, medicines... all over the world).
· Tax havens and loopholes.
· Corporate welfare.
· Corruption, insider trading, etc.

We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Sharing welcome!

Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world.



https://www.oxfam.org/en/pressroom/pressreleases/2017-01-16/just-8-men-own-same-wealth-half-world

It's like most people don't think about the consequences when they use Microsoft Windows and Apple products, when they go to Walmart, when they don't boycott companies that lack social responsibility, when they vote for corrupt politicians, etc.

Of course we also have to take into account:
· The financial/banking system (based on debt slavery, compound interests, etc).
· Patents (that is, monopolies granted by the state so corporate predators can hijack technologies that otherwise could be used to produce new cheaper products, medicines... all over the world).
· Tax havens and loopholes.
· Corporate welfare.
· Corruption, insider trading, etc.

Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world | Oxfam International

Eight men own the same wealth as the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity, according to a new report published by Oxfam today to mark the annual meeting of political and business leaders in Davos.
