Re: README.md for a project page but not a repos README 2 months ago

From Oliver Leaver-Smith to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

As far as I know, you need to elect a repository's README.md to use for the project. I creat a $project-docs repo for this purpose. You can choose the README to use from the "source/manage" page of the project

# IRC Etiquette

IRC is a wonderful place. It has the power to connect people from all over the planet who share a common goal or interest. IRC has grown very organically over the many years it has been around, and each network operates differently. This guide exists to give an introduction to general IRC etiquette and ideals specific to [chat.sr.ht](https://chat.sr.ht).

chat.sr.ht etiquette guide 7 months ago

From Oliver Leaver-Smith to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hello,

There are a number of IRC etiquette guides out there for new users of
the service, which are often very important to manage their
expectations.

A few such guides are:

* https://github.com/fizerkhan/irc-etiquette
* https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines
* https://tilde.chat/wiki/etiquette

What do folks think about a specific sr.ht etiquette guide given
chat.sr.ht has now been released to everyone?

Thanks, it's very much a proof of concept sure, I wouldn't want it
anywhere near production!

aerc, mbsync, and opensmtpd? 1 year, 1 month ago

From Oliver Leaver-Smith to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Hey Drew,

As with any article about email, expect 9000+ replies detailing
alternatives you 100% must be using instead. I run a similar set up
with OpenSMTPD instead of postfix.

I see you already acknowledged that postfix is overkill, and annoying to
configure. OpenSMTPD is probably still overkill but I think the config
is a lot simpler to manage. Personal preference maybe, and like you said
postfix is what you know.

Thought I'd throw it out as an alternative anyway given it has served me

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the feedback and the question. I have a physical OpenBSD
"server" at home that I use a a very rough test bed for ideas and
upgrades. The majority of my stuff lives on a few VPS hosts. I always
tend to go for vultr.com as they support OpenBSD deployments, and have
6.9 available already.

All the best

git-send-email.io reply contents incorrect 1 year, 1 month ago

From Oliver Leaver-Smith to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Hi Drew,

I was looking through the mail archives for the email-test-drive project
(https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/email-test-drive) and spotted that the
Stage 2 reply mentions the sr.ht-discuss list, but provides your public
inbox mailbox. I went to submit a patch but it has already been done,
yet the reply is still incorrect.

Does the app need restarting to pick up the new template?

All the best,
