First #YunoHost newsletter is out for October. Catch that over at https://forum.yunohost.org/t/october-newsletter/9446. There is work going towards showing those posts nicely on https://yunohost.org/#/news (already works but has some issues, thanks @bram!)
The brand new #yunohost newsletter needs your help! Please help us find nice things to share 👋 👋 👋
#yunohost people, I've packaged mailman3 over at https://github.com/YunoHost-Apps/mailman3_ynh. I'd love some feedback if you take it for a test run (doesn't have a YunoHost rating "level" yet and only supports install/remove). Also see https://forum.yunohost.org/t/community-app-mailman3-free-software-for-managing-electronic-mail-discussion-and-e-newsletter-lists/9077

Still trying to get the word out about all this federation packaging goodness happening over at #yunohost https://socialhub.network/t/yunohost-self-host-your-federated-instance-now/651
MediaWiki maintenance on #yunohost has been resurrected! See https://forum.yunohost.org/t/community-app-mediawiki-free-software-wiki-package-wikipedia/8588/3. New integrated LDAP support and shipping version 1.32.
#foodhackingbase need your support! https://foodhackingbase.org/wiki/Ccccamp_2019_crowdsourcing
It's a project which aims to make self-hosting more accessible. All the major federated platforms are available to install via a friendly user interface.
Support is available over at https://forum.yunohost.org/.
If you're interested in #ansible and #molecule, I'm giving a workshop near #utrecht that was just announced https://www.meetup.com/Ansible-Benelux/events/262940504/
if Pleroma were to use a different federation protocol for federating between Pleroma instances, which was very well documented, and supported real security features, and real nomadic identity (backed by a DHT + sharding), would you be willing to accept only interoperability with AP networks for cases where an activity is representable over AP?
@DashEquals I'll pretty much just be echoing a lot of the other replies lol.
Just because it's public doesn't mean it should stick around forever. There's a reason why the "right to be forgotten" has its own Wikipedia page. There's a specific section of Article 17 that pertains to this and it's officially called the "Right to erasure" and unofficially called the "right to be forgotten". It allows people to erase public information about themselves.
Personally, I consider Archive.org and similar organisations a threat. It may have changed now (I'll know for sure when I hear back about my exclusion request) but, in the past, they would archive any site they came across without the owner's permission *even if* they disallowed it in their robots.txt. Yes, you can go through the trouble I have and block a list of IP addresses they own but robots.txt is supposed to be an understood standard. "If I don't want you accessing my site, I will put an exclusion here. Please respect that and don't." The fact that they ignore it, quite frankly, pisses me off and I regard them as a malicious entity because of it.
OSINT specialists love the Wayback Machine because they can look at a site and see historical information about it that the author may not be aware is public. Attackers use this all the time and it is dangerous.
If the Wayback Machine was opt-in and I could choose when snapshots were taken, I would be all for it. I would love to have a tool like that. As it is, it's not and I take preventative measures to block them.
I wasn't sure my tactics would actually work until I checked a few minutes ago. It's good to know they do.
I am not happy that they archived my old site
As well as my old Fosstodon account and GitHub page. I doubt they'll remove those but I'll see what I can do anyway.
Damn. No python implementation for the #DAT project yet and nothing officially planned due to lack of funding AFAICT. These new decentralisation projects are really lacking €€€
