Re: Hare packages for Linux 4 months ago

From Amin Bandali to ~sircmpwn/hare-users

I'd be interested in helping package and sponsor hare into Debian,
and was actually planning on looking into it soon myself.

Though I believe we need to package qbe first.

Shall we coordinate off-list?

Hi Ali Reza, Ethan, all,

(Co)maintainer of GNU IceCat here; I thought I'd clarify a few things.

That's not entirely accurate.  While it is true that GNU IceCat is the
GNU version of the Firefox browser (more specifically, Firefox ESR), our
pace of making changes and cutting IceCat releases has often been slower
than our Firefox ESR upstream, and *much* slower compared to the rate at
which Firefox itself changes.  That is in fact part of the challenge:
there are *a lot* of changes accumulated in Firefox from one ESR release
to the next, and since IceCat ships with quite a few customizations

[PATCH meta.sr.ht] Fix recently-introduced logical issues around invitations 3 years ago

From Amin Bandali to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-dev

* metasrht/templates/register.html: Without the fix, even users with
an invitation would be told "Registration is currently closed."

* metasrht/templates/tabs.html: The invites tab should be visible when
registration is closed, not when open.

[PATCH drewdevault.com] Add archive.html as an index of all posts (without pagination) 4 years ago

From Amin Bandali to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

I threw this together in a few minutes, seeing you already have a
post-stub partial.  Feel free to change the permalink if it's not
suitable (too close to archive/).  Would be nice to have this linked
somewhere on the sidebar too.

Oh, okay.  IIRC when I brought this up on IRC a month or two ago you’d
said that you would accept patches for it, so I didn’t ask there again
or on sr.ht-discuss before sending these.
