The deadline has just been extended to the start of May.
Be cool if you signed it!
Today we're kicking off the #GNU Assembly!
This is a new umbrella for GNU people seeking transparent decision-making and built around consensus. It's the result of a decade of struggle to make #GNU inclusive, transparent, and community-driven.
#GNU contributors: consider joining!
#FreeSoftware activists: help us spread the word!
Igalia's statement on RMS and the FSF.
> "We at Igalia are dismayed that Richard Stallman is back in a leadership position at the Free Software Foundation, after being forced to resign 18 months ago due to a pattern of sexist behavior. After all of the efforts of the community and FSF staff to build an inclusive movement for software freedom, we are baffled that the electors of the board chose to reinstate Stallman without any explanation, much less an apology or remediation for past behavior. [...]"

@ioa Thumbs up Igalia for being such a model not only as an organization that builds key freedom-respecting pieces of software, but also as an egalitarian cooperative! <3
People working on web engines:
This year our (remote) Igalia WebEngines Hackfest will be early May - I can't wait! 🤓
Did I mention that we at Igalia are hiring? We're hiring! Join our respectful egalitarian flat cooperative structure and let's build free open source software together. ❤️
For students we also offer a CE programme:
Several areas of work are possible.
We're very remote-friendly.
It's worth noting that the arguments self-righteous people use in attacks on people's preferred pronoun "they" are entirely invalid. The singular "they" has been in use since the 14th century.
Not that this adds anything though, hateful is hateful, and so are the attacks on people's personal preferences concerning themselves.

Still needs a lot of work. Heck, it was messy!
