Thanks to #FreeSoftware developers, the German #CoronaWarnApp for tracing #COVID19 risk contacts is available on @fdroidorg without any Google dependencies. This not only fosters software freedom, but also sets the ground for innovative features.

@alex Hey, you develop a mastodon frontend alternative! That's pretty awesome. I've always wanted to host my own fedi instance, but mastodon installation guide is too intimidating for a hobby project. Pleroma + Soapbox looks easy enough. I might give it a try.
The youtube-dl team backed down, they removed functionality necessary for it to access some videos.
I'm not faulting them, maybe they live in a repressive country where their lives are under threat, they don't owe it to us.
But yesterday youtube-dl was accessible everywhere BUT Github, today partial-youtube-dl is accessible on Github, and from now on the main developed branch will be partial-youtube-dl. That's it, the boogiemen won.
#Fennec #FDroid based on #Fenix alias the latest #Firefox for #Android has arrived! Trackers have been removed, "about:config" is available. The version has not been marked as recommended yet, so you have to download and install manually. Thanks to relan, @Bubu and all who have made this possible. 🥳
