@d71107 yeah, unfortunate but I’ve been debating running my own Matrix server; not sure which Mastodon server to switch to though.
It is proven! I am kisom on Keybase: https://keybase.io/kisom/sigchain#e6691e1c2b069abac7879e9091bc500e75042576d27893e0c2c84d1dbd7385e00f
I've started wroting a portable version of OpenBSD's signify(1): https://github.com/kisom/psignify
@stephenjahl now if only their server wasn’t closed source.
@stephenjahl or keybase but I guess that’s more work (also TIL about Tutanota)
@stephenjahl obviously time for a key party
macOS is becoming the new Windows: updates taking multiple reboots, which eats up ~30-45 minutes per pass; stability issues; etc not to mention awful hardware. It’s been quite nice being back on OpenBSD at home (and my 5 year old MacBook Air is doing okay), but stuck with this MacBook pro for work.
@stephenjahl Hmm, I just set up tt-rss but maybe I should check it out, reduce the amount of php in my life...
@vaelen what happened this time?
We need to talk about packaging, signatures, checksums and reproducible builds:
On your system you have a keyring of packagers' GPG keys that you inherently trust.
Releases get signed with a key, which verifies the packager as the author, and supposedly lets you and your system trust their contents.
But do you really trust your packagers? How could you? Do you know them personally and monitor their packaging work?
Would you even know if they release a package with malicious content?
@fribbledom It was really heartening to see Debian making an effort towards this.
