Why is the favicon embedded on every page? 4 months ago

From Evan Boehs to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

from my testing, each sourcehut page contains the following snippet

rel="icon" type="image/png"/>

This sets the favicon.

Tested pages include

For what it's worth you can hide domains from google using extensions or 
violent money scripts. I am personally using ublacklist with the 
following blacklist excerpt:

# General tech- and education sites to block

# Shitshows

# Content farms, clones etc.

Re: OAuth 2.0 personal access token generation fail 6 months ago

Thank you for all the help conrad! Super happy to have you around.

Might I suggest adding a warning about this when generating OAuth 2.0 
Keys, if you have not already?

This is something I have struggled with. Contrast on the header was 
always a problem, I'm doubtful it's good now, even though it passes the 
contrast checker. I ended up just enlarging the header slightly, because 
I had a hard time getting used to darker colors.

While i'm not positive if this was the reason, the sourcehut team was 
dealing with crypto miners in builds before.

Re: How best to dispatch patches to upstream GitHub projects? 7 months ago

I would like to draw attention to this, but also mention the fact that 
this "integration" is very much one way, helping to get activity in 
github into sourcehut, but not in sourcehut into github.

I'm happy with this.

This seems to be an explicit choice, note the bidirectional support in 
sourcehut for the mostly open source gitlab.
