SILE v0.12.0 release features *mathematics typesetting* for the first time! 🎉

This is not TeX yet, but hey, you gotta start somewhere 😼

Good news for everybody using #tryton #erp: Tryton and (almost) all of its modules are in #guix now! So you now can have a fully reproducible installation of you organization/corporate software.

"Almost all" since I left away one package which's dependencues are to hard to package.

Today is Igalia's 20th anniversary, celebrating 20 years of contributions to open and free software, as a successful egalitarian worker cooperative.

I joined Igalia almost two years ago, in which I did and continue to learn so many fascinating things, about language specification, about WebAssembly, about JS engines and compilers. But most importantly, about taking common decisions and truly working together as equals.

As I told my dear coworkers:

"Enjoying one's work is a fine thing, but being able to share common goals and such collegiality with you Igalians is certainly a dream come true."

En Espagne, un gamin de 15 ans s'est fait virer de l'école parce qu'il portait une jupe. L' adolescent, qui voulait sensibiliser ses camarades à la non-conformité de genre s'était, en plus d'être exclu, vu imposer un suivi psychologique.
En soutien, son professeur de mathématiques, Jose Piñas a alors décidé d'assurer ses cours en jupe!

Parti de Valladolid le mouvement #LaRopaNoTieneGenero (« les vêtements n’ont pas de genre ») s'est répandu dans toute l'Espagne.
Depuis octobre 2020, régulièrement, des professeurs enseignent en jupe. Pour promouvoir une école qui éduque sur le respect, la diversité, la mixité et la tolérance.

It's nice to see that #guix hash tag has 55 mentions per week and it's more than #ubuntu, #arch #fedora.

#debian has a some lead here with its 94 mentions.

BTW, what do you use?

From the Guix blog: What's In a Package?

A look into how Guix aims for reproducibility, how packages can make this easy or (in this case) difficult, and how we all stand to benefit from buildable-from-source systems and stand to lose from opaque box binary-only approaches.

Announcing the International Anti-Authoritarian Gathering 2022 in St-Imier!

From 28th to 31st July 2022 a gathering will take place in St-Imier (Jura, Switzerland) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Congress of St-Imier which, in 1872, saw the foundation of the Anti-Authoritarian International, an event marking the birth of the organized anarchist movement.

The event will consist of 4 days of meetings, lectures, concerts, seminars and various other activities. It will be a great opportunity for libertarian supporters and the general public to debate, share and experience libertarian ideas and practices. It is an opportunity for those who have not yet discovered the rich history of the anarchist movement to learn about its contributions to social progress and its struggles from previous centuries to the present day.

This @anarchy2022 account will be the principle social media account for the event. So, start following us here to keep up to date with more details as the organization of the event proceeds.

The website is being set up at

“What’s in a package” 📦

This blog post was inspired by the sweat I put into packaging for and by a desire to understand what & were doing and to explain what’s at stake.

@rysiek Congratulations on reaching a milestone!

As part of another @NGIZero project we've been working on ERIS - an encoding of data into small, encrypted blocks:

This allows you to store content securely and censorship-resistant on IPFS or GNUNet or OpenDHT or anything really. The encoding and the identifier of the content becomes independent of the transport.

Might be applicable for #LibResilient. The motivation seems very similar.

After more searching than I'd like to admit I figured out how to use gtags from multiple directories inside vim. The GTAGSLIBPATH variable let me search all the directories I needed so I could follow #Guix packages between repositories

I mentioned that emacs had a gameboy emulator named eboy:

@aeva and other Hack and Crafts participants convinced me I had to show it off live

Move over M-x tetris, we're playing gameboy tetris now

just gained the ‘generic-git’ updater, meaning it can check for new releases for anything hosted on :

That brings us to a total of 23 updaters covering close to 100% of the packages.

Next step is the bit that actually updates Git references in packages:

@theruran It can do that: add ‘--repl’ to the kernel command line in GRUB. 🙂
