The Librem 5 smartphone team has been hard at work, and we want to update you all on our software progress.

Including: LibHandy, Calls, Encrypted messaging, patches going upstream, Mesa, Documentation, and... Quake II. Seriously.

As we approach the release of the Librem 5 smartphone (Q3 of 2019), we're going to take a look at 1 application (or game, or feature) running on the Librem 5 Development Kit every single day.

Starting with something fun:

Day 1 - AisleRiot Solitaire

We are organizing an all kerala mapping campaign.The primary agenda is to add more content to OSM in the light of last flood It will be organized in 10+ phases.On each phase we will focus only on one set of parameter. The first phase will focus only on relief points like hospitals, schools and major buildings.
We are planning for 1000+ contributors. We will run a distributed call centre network to coordinate the activity. We have done the same call centre setup during last flood time.

(Post 2/2) Election deposit -> 25,000
Posters and other expenses -> 10,105
Debit card fee -> 177
Loans repaid -> 25,000
Bank balance -> 31,700
Cash in hand -> 4895

This comes to 96, 877 as expense (rounding off caused the mismatch of 1 rupees).

Out of 31,700 in bank account, after paying back 25,000 remaining loans, we have 6,700 in bank + 4895 in cash. This did not include stamp paper and notary fee of 1050.

So final balance we have to use in future campaigns is 10,545 rupees.

(Post 1/2) Election expense report (to be submitted today) for my candidacy for House of People Constituency, Kannur.

Total donations -> +47,700
Loans -> +50,000
Fund from last campaign -> +5,296
Fee deducted by -> -6,118 (They have a minimum fee of -5,000 to discourage smaller fund raising campaigns).

This comes to 96,878 as income.

I am so impressed with Hong Kong's citizens, what a gleaming example of how to stand up against corrupt power for the rest of the world.

Critical base packages will be fixed and optional packages which has open rc bugs will be removed.

We had 10 release parties in for release We should organize more for as we have a bigger community now and more contributors.

@balu സത്യം പറഞ്ഞ സിസ്റ്റംസിൽ ഇംഗ്ലീഷല്ലാതെ വേറെ ഒരു ഭാഷയെ കുറിച്ച ഞാൻ ചിന്തിച്ചിട്ടില്ല പക്ഷെ സ്വതന്ത്ര മലയാളം കമ്പ്യൂട്ടിങ്ങിന്റെ "എന്റെ കമ്പ്യൂട്ടറിനു് എന്റെ ഭാഷ" എന്ന ആശയം തലയ്ക്കു പിടിച്ചപോള എങ്ങനെ എന്തുകൊണ്ടായികൂടാ എന്നു തോന്നിയത്.
ഇപ്പോൾ UI കൊറച്ചു കൊറച്ചായിട്ടു തർജ്ജമ ചെയ്തോണ്ടിരിക്കുന്നു.

Since you said you were planning to keep it up only for 2 years, I was wondering if you'd be OK to transfer it to community? Like we took over maintenance.
