Happy to announce our upcoming hackfest: ferryd, Reporting for Query Duty, for Saturday Sept. 21st at 10am Eastern, 2pm UTC! In this hackfest, Bryan will be working on report generation in #ferryd and Josh will be finalizing work on the #GNOME 3.34 stack upgrade! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3TUmsbvnKlc
Formal heads-up: Stream begins in 30 minutes from now over at https://www.twitch.tv/joshstrobl
1. Work on some #GNOME package upgrades that are a bit more tedious or long-running (e.g. mozjs + gjs, libwebkit-gtk, libgtk-3 itself, etc).
2. Go to store to get goodies.
3. Stream GNOME 3.34 stack upgrade over on https://twitch.tv/joshstrobl 🎉
Still around 4 hours or so out from starting the stream, but feel free to follow me on Twitch and turn on notifications to get notified on when I'm going live! I'll also keep peeps posted on my socials with any adjusted ETA!

A tease of some final touches on the design for the new Packaging section of the upcoming Help Center redesign for #Solus.
Yes, that is a Learn Solus Packaging section you see. Yes, that video series will be making a return. The dozens of you that asked for it will be happy 😄
Tune into the ferryd: The SQL hackfest tomorrow to see more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbrV0p1lUIA
It's summertime and you know what that means, it's time to close our curtains, hide from the sun, and have another hackfest! In this hackfest, Bryan continues his work on rewriting ferryd to enable faster syncs, deltas, and indexing. I work on the Help Center redesign!

So with all the news about Ubuntu's 32-bit / multilib future deprecation / reduced support, I'd like to remind people that #Solus is happy to provide multilib libs for Steam, WINE, and specific binary compatibility, and we're typically able to do it with such little to no effort.
I've gone ahead and created a dedicated thread on our Flarum to help consolidate support queries for those which are not familiar or yet comfortable with our Development Tracker. https://discuss.getsol.us/d/937-03-05-2019-sync-report - Joshua
Going to start pushing the GNOME Stack upgrade + Budgie git builds for #Solus tomorrow. Keep an eye on our blog for news about it, I'll put one out when the stack upgrade is complete!
Generalistic and moderated instance.
