Librecast has always hosted our own git repos, but we also maintain a public mirror separately at github.

Due to the post by @conservancy, we have decided to start the migration process of our code from github to @codeberg .
sfconservancy.org/blog/2022/ju

Our main library librecast is @ codeberg.org/librecast/libreca

But we have some other tools you can check out as well. All of course themed around .

We want to help to develop the . We believe that is an important component for this. But we aren't just focusing on the tech. We work on this because we believe democracy needs a fully functioning Internet that sees censorship as damage and can route around it.

@FediFollows
Thanks for the introduction! Hi Fediverse!

We have a Peertube channel on spectra.video @librecast@spectra.video as well, which we will be adding to.

We have some posts coming up soon about the various milestones we have done and what functionality they do.

We believe in building small tools using multicast which forms the building blocks for librecast live. @dentangle is our project founder. @onepict operates the account.

Many thanks to @mwfc and @ordnung for welcoming us to chaos.social as individuals and now as a project home.
We mainly will be using this account for project announcements, and appropriate community interactions. For non project related communications @dentangle is our main developer contact. @onepict is community and privacy.

Two new projects just signed in the NGI portofolio addressing Search topic:
- NGI Search (8.5M€) will fund open source technologies for search @mirkopresser
- Openwebsearch (8.5M€) focuses on Search index infrastructure openwebsearch.eu/index.html

Both projects will resort to community contributions through open calls (so called cascading) that will open later this year. Stay tune.

Earlier this year we embarked on some experiments with our IoT updater POC code with Fed4fire+.

@EC_NGI published a blog about the project.

In order to talk about our captcha's accessibility, we're scheduling a public meeting tomorrow (Thursday 2022-07-21) at 19.00 CEST (17.00 UTC), probably via the BigBlueButton hosting of @senfcall.

We hope to get through the important topics within an hour. I'll
happily share the link here if anyone is interested to join us.

Another package into debian experimental thanks to @vagrantc of @reproducible_builds . 🎉🙏

lcrq provides Forward Error Correction via raptorq fountain codes.

@codeberg @gitea

In light of #GiveUpGitHub and transitioning projects to #Codeberg and other #Gitea instances there've been issues with #accessibility, like with the #Captcha's for instance.

While #a11y can seem nice-to-have for able-bodied people, they are crucial for those with disabilities. Accessibility is a human right.

We've been spreading word to notify people to help you and contribute improvements. But to make this efficient you should actively guide this and "Just PR" isn't enough.

@loveisgrief @librecast That is a feature for the Librecast LIVE! application.

The Librecast API doesn't need ActivityPub directly, no.

So @codeberg (think of it as the ethical GitHub) is a not-for-profit that depends on donations. You can also become a member of the org by supporting it.

Since I’m moving our projects there, I’ve signed up as an active member and Small Technology Foundation is now a supporting member with both me and the org making separate small annual contributions to the organisation.

If you’re using the service and can afford it, please help them maintain the commons.
