wgreenhouse
JordiGH: who are they?
JordiGH
wgreenhouse: She used to work at Google. I don't know what she's up to nowadays. I met her in 2012, I think.
benaiah
didi: and routers are infamous for getting pwned remotely. maybe good enough for you, but nobody with sensitive code is gonna use that
JordiGH
2011, perhaps.
didi
,pat benaiah
fsbot
(Action) pats benaiah patronizingly on the head
wgreenhouse
benaiah: and yet sqlite is in everything and sqlite relies on fossil
benaiah: I wonder how many evil commits have been injected
benaiah
"bad things haven't happened to our obscure software" !== "bad things can't happen to our obscure software"
where obscure software is fossil, not sqlite, obviously
wgreenhouse
benaiah: ah, sqlite's public repos are configured to have readonly webinterfaces
you can do that, on a per-address/interface basis
         

benaiah
wgreenhouse: that makes sense
wgreenhouse
(Action) disables panic-mode
:)
benaiah: and https://sqlite.org/ is an example of a themed fossil site not looking buttugly
https://sqlite.org/cgi/src/doc/trunk/README.md being the main repo
benaiah
this, btw, is the reason I don't like gitlab: http://feedback.gitlab.com/forums/176466-general/suggestions/3907476-add-readme-to-project-home-view

wgreenhouse
benaiah: they fixed that.,
benaiah
they finally gave in, but they dug in their heels for a long time
long enough for me to stop using it
and they still use that excuse to close tons of other feature requests. their attitude hasn't changed, they just gave in that time.

benaiah
"Doesn't add configuration options since they complicate future changes" is verbatim out of their contribution acceptance criteria
JordiGH
benaiah: Well, at least if you disagree strongly you can fork off your own gitlab.
benaiah
JordiGH: can we make "well at least you can fork it" the Godwin's Law of open source?
jlf
i think you'd have to get godwin to say it
benaiah
*Godwin's Law equivalent
JordiGH
benaiah: It's a real argument. I hate it when I had to beg bitbucket to do something and know there was absolutely nothing I could do about it but beg.
wasamasa
benaiah: they did change that default though
jlf
you could grovel
JordiGH
I must be weird in that I actually do keep private forks of software that pisses me off.
wasamasa
benaiah: see https://gitlab.com/cloje/cloje for an example
jlf
JordiGH: heh, i have destefanize.el
wasamasa
wat
         

bremner
jlf: does it install vim?
benaiah
wasamasa: I know they changed that one, but that's not the only feature request I wanted that got shot down because "we know what you want better than you do plebians"
jlf
um no
JordiGH
jlf: At least it's not stefan-is-a-twit.el
benaiah
JordiGH: how do you keep up with upstream? (or do you at all?)
tali713
jlf: what does destefanize do?
JordiGH
benaiah: I rebase.
didi
JordiGH: Do you like Kallithea? I heard it started (not in its fork form) as source code management system for hg.
turbofail
probably keeps aget for one
jlf
tali713: yeah stuff like that
JordiGH
didi: I have not used it much, but I like what it's doing.
It's also a pretty active free project.
The way it became non-free... is shady.
Lots of backstabbing and lying.
jonl
Hi I am very new to emacs and org mode, I can't seem to figure out how to hide everything but a single keyword in org-mode. For example, I only want to see tasks with the keyword / status DONE for instance.
Thanks so much!
belak
JordiGH: The way rodecode became non-free?
JordiGH
belak: yeah.
belak
I'm pretty sure Kallithea is still free
jonl
(I'm also using spacemacs which is confusing the hell out of me)
JordiGH
belak: I meant Rhodecode.
tali713
jlf: oh, I was hoping for something exciting, like smartly removing the cl- prefix in files that use it.
belak
Got it. :) Yeah, that's shady to say the least.
JordiGH
Basically, the Kallithea devs decided it was better to not go to court, but I think they totally had good reasons to.
belak
JordiGH: it was something around how much it would cost to go to court
aidalgol
Ooo, coder drama? What'd I miss? What'd I miss?
belak
aidalgol: nothing new
jlf
what do i need to do to make ubuntu stop raising menus when i press and release modifier keys?
aidalgol
,tell jlf about twb-fix
fsbot
jlf: Most problems can be solved by installing Debian.
jlf
(Action) dutifully rubs the lipstick off of ubuntu
tali713
unless the problem is getting your wifi card to work.
jlf
no improvement
aidalgol
tali713: touche
jlf: ooo, burn
wgreenhouse
jonl: C-x n s (narrow to subtree)
bremner
tali713: or getting a job at canonical. Actually, it might help then too.
benaiah
(Action) 's boss is bugging him to push because he's scared of merges
aidalgol
jlf: Are you using Unity?
mordocai
Meh, wifi has been working in linux in general for awhile now. Only problem with debian is having to install linux-firmware-nonfree
jlf
aidalgol: i...don't know
mordocai
Though, broadcom still sucks everywhere
aidalgol
mordocai: If you can call that a problem.
didi
mordocai: Freedom hater.
benaiah
jlf: I used to know that. I'll see if I can remember.
aidalgol
jlf: Are you using the default Ubuntu desktop environment?
wgreenhouse
jonl: or use (info "(org) Sparse trees") to get a view of only org headings matching some criteria (with org having a fairly complex and deep matching language to use there)
tali713
mordocai: which is not easy for a new user to do initially, and a landline is required after the fact. pretty easy, sure if you are expecting it.
jlf
aidalgol: ya
mordocai
didi: aidalgol: Problem, as in what tali said. Not easy for new users.
aidalgol
Because as far as I can tell, your best option if you want to customise Unity is to use a different DE.
benaiah
jlf: honestly I think my fix might have been installing kde
jlf
cheese and rice.
jonl
thanks wgreenhouse
benaiah
but I could have sworn I got it to work in unity first
didi
New users don't use computers. Wake up
mordocai
lol
aidalgol
mordocai: Well I don't think Ubuntu is fantastically easy for newbies either, but I don't want to have that argument right now. :)
Especially not with a stoned tali713.
(Action) ducks.
wgreenhouse
JordiGH: yeah, the shady guys often win by attrition
benaiah
jlf: you need unity-tweak-tool
