Looks like you forgot to change the package description.

I made an AUR package for gemgen. If you want to manage it yourself I'll 
transfer ownership to you.


stargazer 0.5.0 release 5 months ago

From Ben Goldberg to ~zethra/stargazer

Hello everyone,

Throughout the past many months I've been working on stargazer as I've 
had time to do so. I've made some improvements and fixed some issues 
(details below). I figured, now's a good time to cut a new release. 
There are still a few features I'd like to add, but given my schedule, 
it my be many months until I can get them finished. So I've decided to 
release what I have done as to not keep these improvements back for what 
might end up been a whole year.

As always, if you have any issues, please let me know.


Re: Is GitHub a derivative work of GPL'd software? 6 months ago

From Ben Aaron Goldberg to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Oh boy, this is an interesting one. Both the legal and ethical questions. 
I haven't ruminate enough to make a judgment on the ethical questions 
involved with this yet, though I definitely agree that the current state 
of things is fraught.

The legal question is curious. I'm no lawyer, so I don't know what the 
legality is on paper. However, in situations like this, the side with the 
money almost always comes out on top. So I doubt anyone will be able to 
successfully sue GitHub over this. Especially considering the potential 
ramifications of the president a ruling like that could set.

Re: Cryptocurrency is an abject disaster 8 months ago

100% agree on this one. And NFTs are just as bad if not worse.

And I have no stake in crypto currency or and block chain thing, nor have 
I ever.

builds.sr.ht for paid users only 9 months ago

From Ben Aaron Goldberg to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss

Hello sr.ht cohorts,

I won't be able to make it to the mumble session this month so I thought 
I'd voice my opinion on this issue here (hope this is the right list). 
I'm fine with making builds a paid only feature. As Drew pointed out in 
the email it's expensive to run and I don't want the devs to have to 
waste their time fighting crypto bots. Blocking off that feature could 
slow adoption a bit, but I think the benefits outweigh the costs. Anyway, 
that's my two cents.

Invented vs Discovered - 502 1 year, 12 days ago

From Ben Goldberg to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

Howdy Drew,

You're Invented vs Discovered form is giving me 502 error when I try to 
submit a response or view the results.

As for my answer, I think at some point those concepts stop being 
meaningfully distinct. In a way all knowledge is both invented and 

Good day to you,
