MAX HEADSPACE 2020: MAKE GIFS GREAT AGAIN

There needs to be a software license that prevents the licensor from ever arbitrarily yanking it because they troon out, turn into an SJW, or otherwise lose their fucking minds at some point in the future. No businesses, or even nonprofits, will ever use open source shit with the "Loony Troon Public License."
I think "LTPL" has a nice ring to it. I wonder if you could do something akin to an "escape hatch" whereby if any of the key contributors troons out, the license expires and all of the source falls into the public domain. Then just ensure that all forked copies and derived works are required to retain the clause ala GPLv3 shit, and BLAM, we prevent the gay future where Skynet troons out and decides to end the cis-triarchy once and for all.

There's nothing stopping you guys from writing that license and pushing for it's use, aside from the fact that it's political suicide. I've written a CoC before, and I would personally strongly recommend not having one unless you are absolutely mandated, and if you are mandated find one that returns 0 results when you ctrl+f for [hate, trans, guns, firearms, lgbt, unsafe].

These are tools for weaponizing process against labor, unless you enjoy paperwork and outrage mongering, you are going to get beat by people whose primary interest is not in building software.

CoC's are fucking useless anyway. All you really need is way of enforcing acceptable behavior among your team..... hell, not even that, promoting good behavior is all you really need to be doing. This shit isn't difficult 😂
If you are actually in charge of a team you only really need one rule and that's if you piss me off you're gone.

Coreboot vs Libreboot - GNU: Please use Coreboot without the blobs (compile time option).​

[Posting here because the technical reason Libreboot is now a bad option is because it doesn't work with newer systems, and the Libreboot "maintainer" has seemingly no will to update the project, and no technical ability to work around the problems]

Coreboot is the actual project, it can be compiled without binary
blobs, and has an command line option to do so.
Libre boot is Coreboot without the binary blobs.

Libre boot has not been updated in 3 years. The "maintainer" does
nothing. Usually this would be fine for a program: at some point often
a program is completed and needs fewer code updates (then one should
focus on media updates and additions that use its capabilities), but
this particular program must be updated to work with new hardware
(new, ever more compromised hardware...)

The "maintainer" (again: here we have someone who is not a
main-programmer of the Work, being effectivly credited with the Work,
when the work on the Work consists simply of removing parts of the
Work, or just setting different complile options) in the past attacked
the FSF and RMS for some emotional issue he was having.

The "maintainer" recently had his genitals sawn off.
He posted pictures of it being done on his personal web page.
Americans (white) men and American (white) women cheer.

This is completely "Fine" and "good" according to Americans, this
"maintainer" has not been cancled, even though he is setting a True
harmful example (not doing any work, essentially plagirising, and
cutting off his manhood, encouraging others to follow his example in
all three cases).

However RMS making comments, that put him in the same camp as the
Authors of some of the books of the Torah, of some of the hadiths of
Islam, of some of the laws of the old Vedic religions, etc, comments
that, if followed, would be benificial to men as men; he is viciously
attacked for that. RMS is an actual programmer, not merely a
"maintainer" who /removes/ things: he built things from the ground up.

America hates men and wishes men to be removed and nullified: which is
why the actions of the Libreboot "maintainer" are lauded by proud
white american men:

1) The Libreboot "maintainer" does nothing
America wants men to be inert and docile, except when working to
support his owner (Ownership is Dominion and Control: women have that
over the "males" in the USA, and every Dominion of the USA)

2) The libreboot "maintainer" has castrated himself physically
America wants men to do this: cut off their genitals.
American women love this: the 80 percent of "males" they do not like
are removed from bothering them: existing only to work and maintain
the women's society.

3) The libreboot "maintainer" has castrated Coreboot
The same mental idea is used here. This may have cause the Libreboot
maintainer to entertain the idea in realitly aswell. Like follows
like. The brain makes objective connections between subjective matters.

All of you likely "respect" the Libre-Boot maintainer, revile the
Coreboot programers, and deeply-disagree with RMS's past comments on
paedophillia (men used to commonly marry girl children in the past:
this only stopped when _white_ America (a country run for the benifit
of white women) decided to effectivly outlaw it world wide by
murdering or tourturing any society that practiced this good-for-men
practice, _white_ (woman-run) America has also popularized men cutting
off their genitals the world over recently: white women like this to
be done to most men; the ones they do not favor and who are "useless"
to them), infact some of you are trying to oust him now.

You have also infected his mind and forced him to reverse his previous
3 statements, statements that the men support (not american men, but
american white men are not human beings: they exibit no agency of
their own so can be thought of as human shaped automatons instead)
since they are benificial to men (they are /harmful/ to white WOMEN:
yes: and what WOMEN want is harmful to men (a castrated economic
slave for money, plus some studs in addition)

I propose that Coreboot simply be used without the blobs, and
libreboot be thrown in the trash where the "maintainers" genitals have
been placed. (He has effectivly thrown it in the trash by not doing
anything with it and only using it as a way to gain attention for
himself: "Look what I do" "I'm a programmer" "Important" "Follow my
lead")

"Maintainers" should not steal the glory from the actual originators of
the Work. We see it happen here where "Maintainers" try to oust the
Authors. They should know their place, or not have one at all (their
position and role is more of one of plagirism than anything else)

It was better when the actual programmers ran things. We had none of
this whining that the white women do (they were ejected immediatly
since they didn't contribute anything and just tried to control the
men socially), and we built code, not tear it down and stick a new
name on it and then attack the hand that feeds.

Libre-boot brings shame to Free Software. Men do not want to have
anything to do with a man who cuts his genetals off, and does no
constructive work either. Libre-boot is very American.

RMS brought honour to Free Software. Men agree that marrying cute
young girls is good. RMS is constructive: built the compiler in a week
initially, and is the but-for cause of all of this. RMS was very
un-American, but has tried to become more American recently, sadly.

RMS: Why do you surround yourself with those who do nothing and do not
respect you? There are many who do respect you and respect you even
more for your statements which were benificial to men.

Why side with the enemies of your Class? Why place yourself in their
Prison? You could probably even have everything you might want in
Russia or South America or Japan or South-East Asia etc.

You're still respected there. But those are men's countries, not
white-women's countries. What have the Americans ever done for you?
(Other than throw you out, and make fun of you for exibiting a sign of
nervousness regarding public speaking once, and spreading rumours
about hygene constantly)?


[Notice: Libreboot author posting photos of his genitals being cut off
is respected, while RMS posting /text/ suggesting Men perhaps could
marry /girls/ causes absolute revulsion and hatread from the
arachnid-like American white men and their rulers: the white women (the
white women find it "disgusting", RMS's opinions, but are happy about
Libreboot-"maintainers" photos and action of chopping his manhood off
(because white women _HATE_ men: thus libreboot-"maintainer"'s shameful
act is in keeping with their interests, while RMS's past text ideas are
not: white women are _EVIL_ tyrants who encourage their men (and they
are _their_ men) to MURDER COUNTLESS INNOCENT muslim men, women,
children BECAUSE "they are p[a]edos: the men should be killed, the
children are better of dead than living in that society"))]

...

For these reasons I propose coreboot with the no-blobs option be used
over "libreboot". It is free-software without the blobs; but even
blobless the spyware in your processor is still there either way
(another gift of America).

This man's thesis is intriguing- he is certainly right about American 'men', and the previous righteousness of Professor Dr. Stallman, though I think he is overly critical of the behaviour of American women in the absence of male leadership- but he should have considered a reasonable compromise option. The GNU Project should create a coreboot fork that excludes binary blobs even from the repo, thus providing functionality well in excess of what Francis Rowe (M)'s shitty little fork provides.

That would offer all the advantages without the impact on the honor of free software.

It should be noted that Mr. Rowe, who I understand has only very recently achieved the status of dickless faggot from his present state of just being a faggot, prefers VIM over Emacs. This should tell you everything you need to know about him.

No fucking way someone who runs a website about both gaming and linux writes something that rockin' cool.
That just adds to the hilarity if true.

He prefers constant pain in his genital area to constant pain in the middle of his palm.

E: Also for those of you not studied up on tranny lore, this exceptional individual went to the SUPORN CLINIC. Known to be one of the worst chop shops available, not that any of them are "good".

Re: Code of Conduct case of Charles Max Wood.

Dear Linux Foundation:

I am writing to you as a concerned member of the software development community which I have enjoyed serving for the last 50 years. I am writing in public because the events I wish to describe took place in public. I fear that something has gone terribly wrong within your organization; and that it will have deep repercussions within this industry that I cherish.

The timeline of events, as far as I can determine them, is as follows:

The Linux Foundation received a public tweet sent to the @KubeCon twitter address. That tweet recommended that Kube Con discontinue their association with Charles Max Wood. The reasons given in this complaint were his request for an open and civil phone call, and a picture of Mr. Wood wearing a MAGA hat.

The Linux Foundation publicly replied from the @linuxfoundation twitter account as follows:

Hi all, We have reviewed social and videos and determined that the Event Code of Conduct was violated and his registration to the event has been revoked. Our events should and will be a safe space.
First let me say that I find it highly problematic that the complaint and the decision were public. Indeed I am surprised that LF would accept a publicly submitted code of conduct complaint. I am much more than surprised that LF would ever consider publicly responding to such a complaint. Indeed, it seems to me that the public complaint, and perhaps even the public response by LF, could be seen as public harassment – which is explicitly prohibited by the LF Code of Conduct.

It seems to me that Code of Conduct complaints made in public must be immediately rejected and viewed as Code of Conduct violations in and of themselves. Code of Conduct complaints should be submitted in private and remain private and confidential in order to prevent their use as a means of harassment. It also seems to me that while the process of accepting, reviewing, and adjudicating such complaints should be public, the proceedings and decision of each individual case should remain private and confidential in order to protect the parties from harm. Making them a public showcase is, simply, horrible.

Was the Code of Conduct actually violated by Mr. Wood? I have watched the videos in question and read the tweets and I can find no instance where Mr Wood violated the LF Code of Conduct. I understand that LF can make any decision they like about what constitutes a Code of Conduct violation. However, when both the complaint and the response are so blatantly public, it seems to me that LF owes it to the observing community to explain their decision and describe the due process that was used to make it – including the decision to make the public response that undoubtedly caused harm to Mr. Wood. To date no such explanation has been forthcoming, despite repeated requests.

The software community needs to understand how decisions like this are going to be made. Otherwise those of us who have watched this case may be forced to conclude that LF has no internal process, that no due diligence will be applied to Code of Conduct complaints and determinations, that the accused will have no rights either of appeal or privacy, that LF feels free to make its decisions based on the blowing of political winds, and will loudly announce their decisions regardless of the harm it might cause.

Therefore I have the following questions:

  • Why was the initial complaint accepted and acknowledged in public? It was clearly political in nature, and very clearly intended to cause harm to Mr. Wood.
  • Is it LF policy to accept complaints that, in and of themselves, violate the LF Code of Conduct?
  • Why was the Code of Conduct determination announced publicly, despite the harm it would obviously cause to Mr. Wood?
  • Can LF specifically justify the determination that Mr. Wood violated the Code of Conduct?
  • Does LF have a documented process by which Code of Conduct complaints are to be submitted, reviewed, and adjudicated?
  • Is it LF policy to consider political affiliation, or support of certain public officials, as Code of Conduct violations?
  • Is it LF policy to publicly denounce registrants who have been determined to have violated the LF Code of Conduct?
  • Does LF have a Code of Conduct for how it conducts itself?
In summary, it appears to this humble observer that The Code of Conduct process at The Linux Foundation went very badly off the rails with regard to Charles Max Wood. That LF owes Mr. Wood, and the Software Community at large, a profound apology. That LF should keep all future Code of Conduct complaints and decisions personal and confidential. That LF should publish and follow a well defined process for accepting, reviewing, and adjudicating future Code of Conduct complaints. And that some form of reparation be provided to Mr. Wood for the public harm that was done to him by the careless and unprofessional behavior of The Linux Foundation.

Yours

Robert C. Martin.

Oh Lawd. Is it gonna be donglegate 2.0? Are they really interested in dropping the guy only because he's a Trump supporter? Did he do anything besides that?
Is Mei actually going with the line of "don't put your personal growth first but be a doormat for the poor and wretched?"
Ayn Rand is as autistic as it gets but I'll be damned if she didn't nail down the villains in her stories.
All that stuff makes me want to go Galt.

Edit:
P.S. Zemlin is a cuck the CEO of the linux foundation gives keynotes from a mac what a loser.

Edit 2 after reading Uncle Bob's letter
This reminds me of the Vic case.
Any CoC other than "Be excellent to each other" should be set on fire. this entire industry should be set on fire.

I agree. Godot is an excellent engine and it sucks these exceptional individuals keep fucking with it. It's especially weird because Godot is much lower level than most engines these days and it's architecture is something to behold.
The lead dev is an extremely smart guy who keeps adding/refactoring wonderful stuff into the engine and luckily he understands to keep his nose out of the shitstorms that occur daily in the tech sector.
I think of Godot as picking up where Game Maker (and XNA to a lesser degree) left off. Allowing you to make 2D games, with 3D being possible but not where the engine is strong right now.

So, the Godot game engine recently introduced a CoC. it doesn't look as woke as the Linux one, with the exception for this part: View attachment 997232

What I do in private is none of your damn business.

Also, pronouns are in the team description: View attachment 997241
I have a bad feeling about this.
I think it's worth stating why the CoC for Godot has appeared. I posted about this in detail in the culture wars thread here. But the TLDR is that one of the Discord admins abused the engine announcements board to promote a strawpoll about how sexist gaming is. There was a shitstorm that resulted with the person who posted the poll losing admin status. The CoC was posted days later.

MAX HEADSPACE 2020: MAKE GIFS GREAT AGAIN

P.S. Zemlin is a cuck the CEO of the linux foundation gives keynotes from a mac what a loser.
We all joke about "lol macfags" but as I recall the same sickness apparently spread to the Gnome foundation. Developers worshipping Macs, then removing features and dumbing down interfaces ala MacOS, then CoC nonsense. It's just correlation, but it's interesting. Everyone is so hell-bent on being trendy.

I mean it more along the line of:
You're the CEO of the freaking Linux foundation, it's your job to be the flagship. You need to be a living embodiment of its values and products. You need to be everything freaking Linux. Your wife should be GNU/Wife. Your talks should be given from a Linux machine and made with OSS tools. Anything less is betraying his own purpose.
And why the fuck is that stupid tool paid more than Linus? He's interchangeable, Linus isn't.
The truth is the Linux Foundation is owned, bought and paid for by large corporations, from Cisco to Google and Microshaft. He's their bitch boy and does their bidding.

Honestly GNU was exceptional to begin with and sherealike requirements are overbearingly controlling doctrinaire leftist aspergations and while nobody probably could've seen troondicks in the future when enthusing about "free software," the sheer extent of Stallman's autism being mitigated by being something of a genius, although also someone who made a lot of infuriating design decisions (just try to read any hardcore main-line GNU code, OK? Fuck. I want to sperg out about his exceptional use of squirly-brackets alone) and that of the postmodern trooncore types being magnified by their distinct lack of genius. But imposing something political on your users is intrusive and gay no matter how you slice it. I am not at all convinced that anything about the sharealike requirements of the GPL actually contributed to making the software better (which is to say, the core contributors would probably have worked on a program with a less-restrictive [BSD/MIT/X11-style] license. Look at modern BSDs or clang which are arguably better than Linux and definitely better than gcc, respectively. Emacs is a crime against humanity. I use ugandaware because it's the best product available for the purpose it's made for, not because of it's license, which is fairly restrictive and "Cathedral"esque.) Autism, however, begets autism, and people shouldn't be surprised that a community that was born with exceptional political ideas should try to grow more of them.
