Re: Upcoming changes to todo.sr.ht's access control system 3 days ago

From Adolfo Santiago to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

I think, if this is for the purpose of having an homogeneous permission
system across all the parts of srht, it's a really good idea.

Maybe git could be out of this because granting access only for people
you want to see the repository when it's private is enough (but keeping
the visibility field), but otherwise, a perfect idea.

I think, if you're willing to put the effort and the time to an open
source project being the maintainer (an inexperienced one), some of the
veterans would help if you need it. You just have to ask!

Nice! Hope Drew agrees!

Husky man pages a month ago

From Adolfo Santiago to ~captainepoch/husky-announce

Hello all!

Yesterday I spent a few hours doing some initial documentation for the
Husky project. I tried to keep it really simple, but at the same time,
with all the context I could for newcomers.

The documentation can be found at

For now, the section that is most completed is the [Contributing][2]
section. Again, this is an initial version, it can be changed.

The [Building][3] section will be completed once I make the changes I
want in the application files. For now, it's empty. Stay tuned for news.

Husky revamped! a month ago

From Adolfo Santiago to ~captainepoch/husky-announce

Hello there!

So, after thinking about the project and experiencing weird bugs while
using the application, I decided to take the step to take a look at the
application and maintain it.

I already talked with the actual maintainer and he is alright with this,
so this will be the new home of Husky!

I have still to take a few things into how I would like to drive the
development of the application, but it will be an email-based workflow,
that's why the project will be hosted at Sourcehut.

There're already two mailist:

Thank you, Drew, really good advice. And you're right. I had a list with
topics, but some of them weren't good enough for a post, so I ended
thrashing the list out...

But sure, I'll be following this advice from now on!

Cheers, everybody!

Yeah, thank you, Drew! I noticed this list while lurking a bit :P

If it's a private project discussed in a private list, the list
shouldn't be allowed to be exported. If the list it's public, I don't
see the problem.

Re: ArchLinux image does not find a package 2 years ago

I didn't thought on patching the pacman.conf

I looked at the doc but didn't see anything there...
