The sixty-second edition of my weekly collection of news about #LinuxPhones (@PINE64 #PinePhone, @purism #Librem5 and such), #LinBits, is out!

#MMS support landing in #Manjaro, #libhandy 1.4.0, #NemoMobile needs translators and more!

@linmob @PINE64 @purism

That is my branch of Chatty by the looks of it. While they are welcome to package and ship it (It is free software after all!), I just caution that MMS support in Chatty is very much experimental, and many things do not work yet.

I just I don't want folks to be disappointed when things do not work as expected.

@kop316 @linmob @PINE64 @purism Manjaro does that often without making this explicit, and we then get plenty of invalid bug reports upstream :( There's usually a good reason why stuff that isn't merged yet isn't merged yet. It's fine to have a distro that includes experimental stuff around for those bravest, but I'd like to see Manjaro clearly state which things they pull in are still unfinished so users are well aware of what to expect.

@dos @kop316 @linmob @PINE64 @purism Ugh, we're dealing with a broken AUR package for Tenacity whose maintainer has ignored our build instructions upstream and shipping a totally broken package.

@dos @kop316 @linmob @PINE64 @purism Despite that we've explicitly said to *not* package before we make a release.


@be @dos @kop316 @linmob @PINE64 @purism I feel like this is a good reason to relabel your master branch 'development' and say if the build I not from a release branch it's not supported.

@dean @dos @kop316 @linmob @PINE64 @purism I disagree. master/main = development. That's normally how it works. There has never been a release. Packaging software that has never been released is irresponsible IMO.

@dean @be @dos @linmob @PINE64 @purism

Ummm....the branch being used is actually called "wip/mms_settings". It isn't in my main branch as I haven't finished working on it.

They are welcome to use what they want ,like I said, this is free software! I just think folks will be disappointed when they realized that MMS support isn't complete.
