[PATCH] update getting started guide a month ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

I went through the guide and updated portions to reflect UI changes and
make some of the process clearer. I also fixed the headings and ran the
file through Vale, correcting some of the errors and warnings.

How do we feel about using American vs British English spellings? I
personally prefer British but it would be better if words are
consistently spelled the same way, whichever is chosen.

[PATCH 3/3] add a rule to replace conversation view with Grove a month ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

I wasn't sure about this one so I welcome feedback. In keeping with our
Arbor-themed naming convention, it seems like the "conversation view"
in Sprig would be called a "Grove" and referring to it the same way
would be beneficial. On the other hand, adding yet another "custom"
term might be a bad idea considering how many we already have. I'd like
to get people's thoughts on this one.

[PATCH] integrate vale 3 months ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

This massive patch attemps to standardise out documentation. For those
unfamiliar with it, Vale is "a syntax-aware linter for prose built with
speed and extensibility in mind" [1]. I built on Vale's
implementation [2] of Google's style guide [3] with specifics for Arbor
and the vocabulary we've started using.

[3]: https://developers.google.com/style/

I didn't modify any of the docs that are already written so some of them
will have a ton of errors. Once Arbor's style has been reviewed and a
bit more polished, I'll go through and start implementing the
recommended changes. To that end, install Vale [1], run it on a few

[PATCH] add new diagrams and update docs 3 months ago

From Amolith to ~whereswaldon/arbor-dev

I added the new diagrams and updated the docs to include them along with
an explanation of what's going on for the simpler overview.

I included the graphml files so they can be imported and edited/improve
later on but I don't know how they'll work in other programs; I created
them in yEd: yworks.com/products/yed

The dark diagrams have transparent backgrounds so they should be
suitable for any shade and the light diagrams are simply white. SVGs are
including for editing colors and exporting at various sizes.

The fact that Arbor nodes can be freely exchanged over any method of communication makes the ecosystem as a whole very flexible. During development, we have exchanged nodes via email, DropBox, Syncthing, http, and custom protocols. The great thing is that none of these methods are mutually exclusive with the others. This gives us the capability to build a robust system that can survive the failure of core components.

Re: Let's introduce ourselves 5 months ago

From Amolith to ~sircmpwn/free-writers-club

Hello all!

I was looking around Drew's mailing lists, noticed this one, and found
it intriguing. I'm an amateur Linux sysadmin, musician, and university
student studying to obtain my Masters degree in CS with a concentration
in systems. As I progress and get into more technical courses, I expect
to write about them as well but, at the moment, it's really just
whatever comes to mind; my blog posts range from subjects like
approximating Drew's streaming set up to bluegrass music to smoking a
pipe.

My personal site is at https://secluded.site but there are also some
posts at https://nixnet.services/blog. I am in the process of moving
some of those to my personal one though.
