In regard to the Streamlined Onboarding goal which I coordinate, our focus was on enabling newcomers to start coding on KDE software.
Here's my take on what went on.
The KDE community is adding Matrix to its instant messaging communication infrastructure. Join our server, get a cool KDE handle and become part of the KDE conversation.
Matrix provides graphical instant messaging for desktop and mobile (with all its goodies: gifs, emojis, etc.), bridging for IRC channels, point to point encryption, file sharing, and more stuff that will help improve KDE's communications.
Always excited to return back to #FOSDEM, a vibrant event bringing together more than 8000 developers and #opensource hackers from all over the world! Come and say hi at @kde 's booth. 🤗 https://dot.kde.org/2019/01/30/come-home-kde-fosdem-2019
In 2018, @kde received more than $500 000 in donations. As a new #KDE e.V. member, this feels like a great opportunity and at the same time a great responsibility. Let's make the most of it! https://dot.kde.org/2018/10/15/kde-ev-receives-sizeable-donation-handshake-foundation
It's been 2 months already since #KDE's #Akademy2018 event in Vienna, yet the memories are still vivid. Here's my attempt to summarize my experience. http://neofytosk.com/post/kdes-akademy-2018-a-multi-hat-retrospective/
In a month I'll be presenting a talk at #Akademy2018 about #KDE's "Streamlined Onboarding" goal, looking to inspire current contributors to care more about introducing newcomers to their projects. Here's an update on this ongoing process: http://neofytosk.com/post/an-update-on-kdes-onboarding-goal-akademy-and-the-sprint-/
Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
