VLC core devs have a company where they sell service around VLC (integration, implementation of a new codec) which is profitable enough to give them time to work on VLC (I couldn't find a written source, don't hesitate to ask if you want more details)

LibreOffice: same as the kernel (couldn't find a better source) i-programmer.info/news/136-ope

@gbryant Hi :) Thanks for this video: invidio.us/sYFRWjBT7Og

Comment: @6:38 Actually a lot of people are paid and that's a good thing because doing non-libre software during the day and doing libre software only at night is sad. So the advance de professionalization is great.
For example, most of the work on the kernel is on payroll: thenewstack.io/contributes-lin

@filipo ĉu la financado de tiu ĉi Mastodon instanco enordas? Mi memoras ke mi donacis al vi pere de @Liberapay
sed mi ne plu retrovas ĝin. Kaj mi zorgas pri certigi ke mi kontribuas al tiu ĉi instanco ^^

@JoshStrobl And because I love Solus and I have high hopes and would like to contribute to it's sustainability.

@JoshStrobl Hi :) Since @SolusProject isn't ready to receive funding as a project, would you be willing to do so as an individual? I think it's very important that users could pay for their libre software so people that want this to be their job could. Or at least part time job. Because ethical software built unpaid doesn't look so ethical about work conditions ^^"

Hi, will your PeerTube instance be maintained? Or should I migrate my videos?

@TheKinrar Hi :) Did something bad happened to your PeerTube instance? (video.atlanti.se/)

In last week's blog post we said we were working on enabling a donor to send money to multiple creators at once instead of having to make multiple payments. Today we're happy to announce that this is now done for donations to European creators processed through Stripe.

Eventually we should be able to the same thing for donations to non-European creators as well, but we don't know yet when that will become possible.

To renew your donations, go to liberapay.com/about/me/giving/

C'est pénible: J'ai plein de bouquins papier que j'aimerai avoir sur ma liseuse. Mais vu que je les ai déjà je vois pas pourquoi je devrai les acheter à nouveau. C'est bien un exemple ou la taxe pour la copie privée sert vraiment à rien.

Hey #PeerTube, you are *awesome*. That's how it's done!

"You are blocking Javascript, and we totally get that. However this endpoint uses Angular, so the front end is in full JavaScript and won't work without it.

There will be other non JS-based clients to access PeerTube, but for now none is available as this is still alpha software. Be sure we will update this page with a list once alternative clients are developed. You can certainly develop you own in the meantime as our code is open (...)"

Le logiciel libre d'édition d'image bien connu GIMP possède maintenant son propre compte d'équipe sur Liberapay : liberapay.com/GIMP

Cela signifie que vous pouvez donner au projet en tant que tel, puis ses membres décideront comment partager la monnaie, alors que précédemment, vous deviez vous débrouiller tout seul pour trouver qui étaient les contributeurs et combien donner à chacun d'entre eux.

@tedomum Merci pour votre instance PeerTube! <3

Est-ce que pouvez ajouter @Liberapay comme possibilité de dons? :)

Il se trouve que quelqu'un *prend un air innocent* a déjà fait une petite promesse don sur la plateforme ^^

@TheKinrar

Can you also add in your Liberapay page that you also hosts a PeerTube instance?
liberapay.com/thekinrar

So I won't have to search why I'm donating to you :P

@TheKinrar Hi, thanks for hosting a PeerTube instance! :D
video.atlanti.se

Can you add donation links in the about page? video.atlanti.se/about

Especially the @Liberapay link ;)

I had a hard time finding a PeerTube instance to which I can donate using Liberapay. So I'm glad to have found yours.

J’ai fait quelques affiches anti-GAFAM, d’après la campagne de LQDN, mais ciblées spécifiquement sur les problématiques qui touchent les personnes LQBTIQ+. Si vous avez des idées de comportements problématiques des GAFAM envers les personnes ou communautés queer, je les rajouterai
