Our Policy Fellow, Bradley M. Kuhn, explains how we can restore #copyleft equality and rid ourselves of toxic proprietary relicensing (sometimes imprecisely called dual licensing) with a novel copyleft clause (invented by Richard Fontana for copyleft-next). https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2020/jan/06/copyleft-equality/ #GPL #FOSS #FOSSLicensing #AGPL

Installing Gitea from source Ubuntu 18.04

What is Gitea?

Gitea is a painless self-hosted Git service that is a community managed lightweight code hosting solution written in Go. ### Why install Gitea?

There are lots of free git services out there: GitHub, GitLab, Gogs, Bitbucket to name a few. Why is Gitea any different? Well, that is exactly the point: Gitea is, for all intents and purposes, the exact same and is even a fork of Gogs, but has all the same luxery features as a paid subscription and is #FOSS that is self-hosted. ### Sources

I used several sources to make my guide and are very similar, but just tailored to my needs, wants, simplifications. - https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/install-from-source/

Open Letter to Richard Stallman About the Free Software Movement

First I would like to suggest a slight shift in meaning to the term “Free Software”. I think you will agree that Freedom is a practical matter, which is to say it is realized in practice. Another way to put this: it is not the software which is intrinsically free (software does not care), it is the users/developers who become free upon their use of the “free” software. Now, if the users’ ability to (“freely”) benefit from the freeness licensed in a software project is in any way impacted, the users are losing some portion of their software freedom.

The license remains as-is, but yet system elements or a non-free development environment can make the software far less free. Keep in mind that “control” is closely akin to “ownership”, and so means of control can thus be monetized.

When reading source code comments...
I have been following #destinationlinux from episode 70. I am not a supporter but it is one of the podcast I listen weekly. And I have noticed, as many other similar podcast, that for them the deb based distro end with \*buntu. And even if they did, on episode 72, an interview with Chris Lamb of #Debian their approach hasn't change very much, and without Rocco probably has got even worst.

Now dear friends let me tell you an obviously that without Debian probably Ubuntu would never exist and let me also say that once you try Debian you never come back to Ubuntu. But the way you treat Debian and related project like #Raspian clearly show that you haven't done well your homework and for that still continue to speak just of \*buntus.

I suggest you to try Debian in depth to understand well the project wholly not only on the technological part. I mean the approximations and commonplaces I heard constantly about the Debian project are quite unjustifiable.

Let me finish pointing out that your main sponsor uses Debian for its infrastructure...

City of Nancy is France’s best example of public services that encourage the use of free, open and collaborative digital technology

“Nancy recognises the value of free software for public services,” says Etienne Gonnu, public affairs officer at April, France’s main free software advocacy organisation, and one of the jury members. Speaking to OSOR, Mr Gonnu explained that the city is a fine example of how to introduce public service employees to free software. “The city focuses these discussions on the needs of their citizens and employees, and then shows how free software is the perfect fit.” Using this approach, the city has managed to increase the use of free software in all parts of its IT infrastructure, Mr Gonnu says.

The city often reaches out to the free software community, organising meetings such as ‘Libre sur la place’. These meeting bring together local politicians, public service employees, citizens and representatives of free software communities.

Why cannot SA Police Services use free and open source ArchiMate for enterprise architecture toolset instead of a commercial tender which will only result in an expensive proprietary product?

Most of SA government is attending TOGAF training by The Open Group and The Open Group provides the ArchiMate modelling toolset free of charge as open source. This means no procurement of the tool, no vendor lock in (you can continue using it), no annual license fees. Any support services needed for the tool could be a simpler cheaper bid to just obtain a local service provider to assist but in most cases a trained enterprise architect could be expected to do this themselves in-house.

The ArchiMate modelling language is an open and independent Enterprise Architecture standard that supports the description, analysis and visualisation of architecture within and across business domains. ArchiMate is one of the open standards hosted by The Open Group and is fully aligned with TOGAF. ArchiMate aids stakeholders in assessing the impact of design choices and changes.
