It's time for The Roundup #10, your bytes of Solus news. In this roundup we are focusing on improving community engagement, reducing barriers to entry, and improving the delivery of Solus news!

@SolusProject Great news! :) I've already fled the sinking ship that was Google+, and am so far rather liking it here on Mastodon. Glad to see #Solus here as well. :)

@SolusProject Probably already mentioned but for chat you could look at matrix it can bridge networks so you can still use the existing irc channel and have history.

@olymk2 The Matrix IRC bridge is notoriously unreliable to the point we've had to ban it entirely from our channels. It is seemingly unable to handle even the most minor of netsplits and just results in the mass exodus and rejoins of Matrix users from our channels. It was an issue for months until we gave up and banned it outright.

@SolusProject ah fair enough I guess that link is an unofficial chat then. stopped running IRC and just using matrix myself because less apps :) I actually did the opposite and shut down irc because of the recent spam getting out of hand.

@SolusProject I think that a traditional mailing lists could help A LOT in this difficult moment. The HUGO hub could be the source for the newsletters/email.
Have you considered that?

@cromlech We already get inundated by emails from Phabricator alone, we don't have any particular interest in even more mail :D

@SolusProject Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant an announcements mailing lists. Low traffic-high quality newsletter.


I'm having problems shutting down from nowhere. I think it's the kernel. Notebook asus X44C.

Hello everyone, and why not install a #hubzilla instance for the #solus community ?

@SolusProject Just started using Mastodon. I already like it a lot more than Facebook, Google or Twitter because it's decentralized and open-source!
