The price of "It just works" is constant rebooting.

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

Cheers!

The concept I'm looking for is REST+HATEOAS, so I guess I'm looking for a Python/JS REST+HATEOAS framework. :)

Anyone have any recommendations for building a resource-oriented REST API in Python (preferably) or JS?

I'm not looking for something like Flask or FastAPI to build a REST-like API, I'm looking for actual REST - you know, where you do a `GET HTTP/1.1 /` and you get a list of links to valid sub-resources, and follow the links from there.

For what it's worth, here's a likely very incomplete THANKS file:

I for one look forward to ANZAC Day transitioning to being primarily a day for remembering to cook biscuits.

@eloquence For API documentation? Succinct, highly organised docs like Javadoc and variants such as Valadoc.

Prose-based API documentation is the worst - doxygen probably the absolute worst.

🎐🎐 Geary 40 has been released! 🎐🎐

This new feature release features substantial interfaces updates to support half-screen and phone displays, search engine updates, and many interface, performance, translation and server compatibility updates and fixes.

Available to download from Flathub right now, and your favourite distribution as it gets packaged.

Upgraded work laptop to Bug Sur, and its both gratifying to see Apple copying all of GNOME's interface features like headerbars and round windows, and horrifying because of the iPhone look-alike widget theme they started they started using. pretty sure there are better-done jobs on gnome-look.org.

@wjt @dadegroot I treat most things like I treat my software - don't buy commercial, mass produced products, pay people instead of companies where needed. :)

@wjt @dadegroot They're for some bookshelves - have the planks, these will let me reconfigure and deploy them as needed.

tfw a debug symbol package that's "only" 80MB seems like a reasonable size…

@mjog True. 🙂 But, too, we are missing out on either culture or process to come to a consensus of what we use to replace these decades-old legacy. At this point, we're currently far off from what seems the strength of FLOSS (collaboration over competition). 😐

@z428 Yeah it's funny, we don't have the problem of trying to support 25 year old binaries like MS does, yet some people can't let go of 50 year old init systems and 40 year old display servers.

@z428 Incidentally, I have been subscribed to the Redshift bug covering lack of support for Wayland since basically day one, and it's best characterised as a lot of people complaining Wayland and no-one (including the maintainer) doing anything about it, so it's hardly surprising it never got fixed.
