Happy Mailman day! #kolab   #opensource   #freesoftware  
 
On today's Swiss national day, we are celebrating the official launch of MyKolab.com! Liberate yourself from your feudal lords that govern the internet!

A public appeal!

Hey all, this is way off topic for my usual postings but I wanted to do a  favour for a friend.... This summer Penguin Books is hiring a Wayfarer to walk, write and follow in the footsteps of Robert Macfarlane and my friend Hayden has applied. He'd be perfect for this, but needs your votes!

Please follow this link, watch his video and then click the vote button underneath!

And here it is! Blue blobs for 366 git.kde.org repos. This actually does not quite represent /all/ of the #KDE repos... I ignore qt/ scratch/ other/ sysadmin/ and a few other folders; stuck to top level "main" repos. Apologies for use of Dropbox; in the future I will have a much better solution in place. For now I just needed /somewhere/ to stash these for y'all. #freesoftware #opensource #git #visualisation

OK folks, here it is... Kolab 3.1a. When it is finally ready K3.1 is going to be the most exciting release of Kolab ever, imho. Card/Cal/WebDAV all included. Nice files interface for saving/attaching attachments from server-side storage.

Get it.

Kolab 3.1 alpha has just been released with iRony! Please help us testing #CalDAV, #CardDAV and #WebDAV!

I really need to look at converting my current half-assed LDAP + a bit of WebDAV + separate roundcube into a kick ass Kolab setup... need to wait for winter to kick in tho'. It's just too nice out :)

Could it be? Plots of commits and committers per day (plus an archive of the raw data) for the entire history of every +The KDE® Community  project on git.k.o? Sure it can! Will post the link soon. #freesoftware #opensource

I'm quite interested to see what the plots really mean too... Are there more commiters or less, but more active?

They said it could never be done. They said it /should/ never been done!... Just produced blue blobs for the entire history of every single git.kde.org project! I will make the entire archive available very soon. #kde #freesoftware #opensource #git #visualisation #data #hashtag
