In case you haven't heard, the EU is now implementing new so-called e-evidence rules. Basically, member countries can obtain access to transactions and data on suspects in (criminal) investigations. Here's the fact sheet:
Note especially the "types of data" section on what can be requested.
If you don't want this type of data leaked, maybe consider not using somebody else's servers (euphemistically known as "the cloud").
The wait is over! Read all about our plans for Thunderbird on Android... and please join us in welcoming @k9mail to the Thunderbird family.
Since entering and graduating the uni more than one and a half decade ago I have never used the office suite other than OpenOffice.org and #LibreOffice unless being unfairly forced to use a proprietary office suite.
At that time I was not really sure if using free office suite had a great benefit, but it was the right choice for me: being locked in a proprietary software would have been a nightmare, considering the fact that I sometimes have to read the files created at that time.
I love #LibreOffice as a developer because its #openess lets me do cool and hacky stuff, e.g. document manipulation for a ##NextCloud app (https://gitlab.com/schrieveslaach/nextcloud-open-document-forms, still work in progress).
I love @libreoffice as a user because it is powerful office suite.
@nicemicro I am really not against having authority which leads the community, but when it comes to FOSS decision making should be public, which makes it possible to trace how things have been decided, whether the decision making have been fair, etc., if the project is no longer marginal. I think that's how free software projects being backed by public nonprofit organizations are expected to work.
I myself don't think this is true, but I guess there might be some people who feel that the core team "lets" the community contribute to their software.
Rocket.chat leverages the #Matrix protocol for interoperable communications
Contributing to development of #matrix SDKs for a couple of months, I got a feeling that the core team often tyrannically decides what to be implemented.
This is a matter of governance and decision making process by a non-profit organization.
Who decides what to be implemented? How much decisive power should be possessed by the core team members?
Obviously these can be answered only after the principle of decision making and code implementation is clarified.

Replaced 8*2GB RAM memory with 16*2 RAM, making total amount to 48GB for my Ubuntu machine, in order to run multiple VMs for #Whonix with a couple of VMs for daily tasks. With 48 GB you can run ~5 VMs nicely. It's something like DIY Qubes OS.
Guess what! Mastodon’s official #Android app was finally approved and is now on the Play Store.
F-Droid submission still being processed.
#Webex, #Zoom etc know your activities while muted. Researchers intercepted network traffic and analysed audio data WHILE USERS WERE MUTED. They trained a classifier and could identify typical background activities like cooking, cleaning, typing.
I don’t share the idea of the researchers by the way that a mic that can pick up cooking sound shouldn’t be able to pick up bathroom sound, too. 😜 (sounds rather like an American approach to this question)
