The #radicale project (selfhosting carddav/caldav solution) is currently looking for some new core maintainers.

If you would like to work on an awesome #opensource project and (in best case) you are familar with #python please join us.

Oh wow, #Gitea is finally getting #kanban boards. I've been waiting for this so I can #selfhost both repositories and code-unrelated to-do lists (currently using #Trello for the latter) in one place. #mc
