The GNOME Code of Conduct says: Be friendly. Be empathetic. Be respectful.

The GNOME Foundation signed an "open letter" accusing a software freedom activist of being "misogynist, ableist, and transphobic".

Questions:

(1) Is the letter in line with the GNOME Code of Conduct?

(2) Is it okay for the GNOME Foundation, as an organization, to sign something like that?

Personally I lean towards "no" on both questions, but I would like to hear what you think, especially GNOME developers.

This is an excellent statement from the FSF India about the current controversy:

"Unfortunately many of the arguments made against him were based on misunderstanding and half truths. More dangerous is concerted attack on RMS vilifying him and trying to isolate him. FSF India condemns this action. There is no freedom more important than freedom of thought and expression."

To understand the background, see for example this: edsantos.eu/on-stalman/

Had a bit of an identity crisis this morning. Luckily there was a command that helped resolve it. I know who I am.

"Suggesting that RMS is intolerant is strange. If anything, he seems to be too tolerant. Implying that RMS is hateful is just ridiculous."

Pictures from my morning walk the other day, down by the water along Edsviken north of Stockholm. I didn't meet it in person, but something tells me there is a living around here.

Autofocus support can't get soon enough - turns out that trying to take a focused macro shot with manual focus controlled by typing values into the terminal is kinda cumbersome 😂

...but spring is here, as seen by the camera!
