ഡെബിയനുൾപ്പെടെ എല്ലാ സ്വതന്ത്ര സോഫ്റ്റ്വെയറും കാടും കടലും ശുദ്ധവായുവും പോലെ എല്ലാ മനുഷ്യരുടേയും പൊതുവായ സ്വത്താണു്.

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!
It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.
No change to you as a Plausible subscriber or self-hoster.

"Starting this Thanksgiving I am going to write a complete Unix-compatible software system called GNU (for Gnu's Not Unix), and give it away free to everyone who can use it." September 27, 1983 - Richard Stallman. https://www.gnu.org/gnu/initial-announcement.en.html
Happy birthday to GNU \o/
The world celebrates Software Freedom Day today with the aim of increasing awareness of Free Software and its virtues, and it is in the same spirit and excitement that we announce today the Free Software Camp.

It's a browser extension that recommends "better" alternative products and services via in-page popups, based on community-curated lists. Available for all Chromium and Firefox-based browsers.

"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say."
— Edward Snowden

Please do visit the brief timeline we've published at:
I'm looking forward to using this occasion to discuss software freedom, self-hosting, building / running a free software business and so much more.
It seems he is now active in our loomio group, which gives us some hope. At least we now know, he has seen our reply. With previous director, we had to take so much effort to even know if the director had seen our letter.
