  3. <h2>Pleroma</h2>
  4. <p>Finally <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://pleroma.social/blog/2020/03/08/releasing-pleroma-2-0-0/">2.0.0 is released</a> (with a bunch of great pleroma-tan drawings), which means that old OStatus code got removed, it broke a bit of current federation with some instances but all software including GnuSocial are ActivityPub-compatible so it's just a matter of time.</p>
  5. <p>In the neat things that I done among a bunch of others (some yet to be merged): <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2339">Remove use of the <code>User.source_data</code> blob</a>, <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2316">Only keep useful data in attachments, fix using them in AP C2S</a>, <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2204">remove usage of <code>\n</code> in formatting, <code>&lt;br/&gt;</code> is now always used</a>, <a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2287">Audio activities</a>+<a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma/-/merge_requests/2333">Funkwhale channels</a>.</p>
  6. <h2>Gentoo</h2>
  7. <p>GURU is is much better shape now, should have been just taking time for it to take off the ground, which isn't really a bad thing as rushing this kind of thing could end up in a huge mess. I started moving few things from my overlay to it and became a Trusted Contributor so been helping on keeping the <code>master</code> branch up-to-date. It also got added into <a href="https://repology.org/">repology</a> which is great for visibility of the packages inside it. I wonder a bit what this will mean for the <code>::gentoo</code> (aka main) repository and proxy-maint but so far it looks like a testing+helping ground before good ebuilds wanting to be maintained get there, which should mean better ebuild quality and less work for proxy-maint project which has been overwhelmed for quite a while.</p>
  8. <p><a target="_blank" rel="noopener" href="https://github.com/gentoo/gentoo/pull/13742">My large changes</a> addressing the inconsistent uses of <code>USE=gles2</code> to mean either adding support or using it instead of full OpenGL got merged and deployed in stable ebuilds.</p>
  9. <h2>COVID-19 Lockdown</h2>
  10. <p>As I'm full remote basically nothing changed here other than much less motivation to go to store (I bought a bit more than usual beforehand, so quite far from crazy stocking) and not going to the hackerspace every Wednesday evening. Only part which is really annoying is that I had some paperwork which required physical meeting and that I can't buy any hardware (at least I done part of it before the lockdown).</p>
