    They won't use system libraries for Proton though, they'll use pressure-vessel as they've been doing for the past few months.

    While Proton is great, it's far from "done" - Valve is going to be doing major development over the course of the Steam Deck's life and having up-to-date packages (which is difficult to do with Debian) is a necessity

    I think it was a pretty interesting perspective and generally reflects what I've thought about news media's business model being contradictory to their reporting.

    I mean, even Tildes has that type of statement saying that Deimos will share information to comply with legal processes. I guess Tildes might make more sense because of direct messages which could include writing contracts (even if it's a terrible place to do it).

    I think it's legal boilerplate simply to state that they will share information they have if they're complied by law enforcement. Even Tildes' Privacy Policy includes something similar :

    My first thought was that this is used for their Microsoft integration. It would fall under this bullet point : In the end, I'm not sure.

    This search engine's privacy policy says they share your information with third party service providers such as Microsoft, and does not include language that says they ensure that those third party service providers do anything to protect your information.

    My first thought was that this is used for their Microsoft integration.

    It would fall under this bullet point :

    Vendors to support the provision of the Services

    Microsoft is one such provider where we may share limited personal information in order to make the Services available.

    In the end, I'm not sure.

    I've started working on fp-build which is a shell script that has a few flatpak commands with tons of flags to build things how I want it and mimick how flathub builds things. It also does some checks to see if the program has a proper icon, .desktop file and appstream data.

    I'd like for it be able to find the manifest without me telling it where it is by looking in the directory I'm currently in, the correct manifest should have a certain format (tld.domain.App) and only has certain extensions (.json, .yaml, .yml) so that should be possible.

    I think I want to add a flag to check the flatpak manifest with flatpak-external-data-checker and more checks in the future which are not mandatory in flathub.

    I've been working on it because I've been working for the past two weeks or three on updating old flatpaks which are using old runtimes, application or libraries. It makes it much easier.

    Also, Matrix suffers from high levels of centralisation. Almost everyone uses matrix.org as their homeserver. Most channels live on matrix.org.

    I'd like to correct this slightly. The way that federation works in Matrix. The rooms are in all servers connected to that room so you can very easily move servers that you're using or the address of the room. Furthermore, if matrix.org goes down, users which are not using matrix.org can still talk in that room. It's very robust in that regard to my knowledge.

    Ehhh, you might not be able to kill it 100% but there'll be a point where most projects will drop it.

    https://www.ircstats.org/servers

    According to these stats, IRC servers have halfed in 4years. Same for services. The amount of users of those services seem less severe only losing around 50k people (-15%).

    With these troubles looming over freenode, I think that this trend downwards will only continue.

    Also, I think it's worth understanding that email is sticking as a de-facto standard because basically all account systems rely on it. This is not true at all for IRC.

    I like them to see how much of the game I've experienced and try to 100% game I like. I absolutely hate achievements which require a multiplayer component because they might be impossible to get if no one plays the multiplayer anymore and they're generally just pointless grinding with no reward.
