While I would like to archive the paper notes I have resulting from the work on infotropique in the past years, and actually implement plant as a tool, let us be realistic. Open Source work takes time. People have jobs, lifes, friends, other hobbies. I will still look into it at some point maybe, but it is more unlikely that I will ever have the time to do this in addition to my involvement in other projects. If I do, it will just be for myself as a specialized audience. Maybe a proof of concept. I am letting this go for now for the lack of more time to invest in Open Source than I already do.

This report was prepared by Nikita Gillmann as a part of Google Summer of Code 2020
Misc notes on the 3 relevant files for adding posix_spawn usage to sh, from https://github.com/teknokatze/gsoc2020/blob/default/sh.txt and summary from today's IRC meeting with my mentors. This week and last week I've read through sh's code, with no clue how to start replacing the logic.
This is my first report for the Google Summer of Code project I am working on for NetBSD.
Continued musings about plant on a saturday evening, still not 100% verified and opinionated as long as I don't double check with my existing notes. It's a bit chaotic, just taking notes.
I am temporarily moving the website back to Haunt. I will move to something self-written eventually, for now the post URLs are all broken (I mean redirected... Hooray!).
gnurl 7.70.0 is the last curl fork release I will (probably) be getting paid for.
I have just released gnurl 7.70.0, following the 7.70.0 release of curl.
As a follow up to b/pkgsrc-additions-2020-04-18-hugo-update/ I continued packaging Hugo dependencies and updating go packages in pkgsrc in general:
Six months ago I made some unfortunate choices in how I arrange my data and since then I've had no access to my music, movies, images and everything.
As a follow up to b/pkgsrc-additions-2020-04-18-hugo-update/ I continued packaging Hugo dependencies:
I'm changing my PGP key. Additionally I have stopped my usage of the SKS Keyservers a while ago, so earlier changes might've not been included in a refresh if you use those.
I started updating www/hugo in pkgsrc.
The careful reader won't have noticed that I went through maybe 30 versions of this website and its design at this point.
I am (mostly) retiring my git and fossil webinterface.
I have made a new release of jinja2-mode after almost 2 years of no significant changes but extensions I use in production.
Many years back I had a dream and vision of work on a network and system with flat or next to none authorities. A system worth to trust.
This will probably be the last note for a long time.
I am annoyed by the format of this website. I won't find the time to fix this very soon, but I hope to rewrite it in an easier format soon which requires less lines of codes to generate the pages. Until then, the pages are more or less frozen. For one, because I don't have the time and patience to update them for myself, and furthermore because I have too much other construction sites. So, I'm still alive, infotropique OS/core and plant got some serious reconsideration over the last months (tracking Guix won't work out for a long list of reasons), working on a new codebase every now and then + writing the principals down which I'd like to implement in this OS.
I am taking down the cgit based webview on c.n0.is and git.infotropique.org. It will not be replace by any other view, though I will either expose some repositories on request via stagit or (with patience) have a listing on this website about repositories.
Since we are going to deprecate the 'blog' function on gnunet.org soon'ish (sometime in 2019), here's to sporadic public notes on gnunet changes.
It took a while, but I finally had the time to fix up most pain-points of this website:
The server previously running infotropique.org, n0.is, and everything else crashed this week. I'm currently recovering it, but it will take a while. While I'm at it I'm restructuring it. I won't run searx and GNUsocial anymore. This website you are reading right now (the blog section) will move to a new subdomain, and more.
In preparation for dropping these domains as soon as they expire:
Edit ~3 years later: Curiosities from the web, late 2017:
gnURL 7.57.0 was released on 2017-12-06. As written in an email earlier today: Its download location has been moved to the GNU FTP and its mirrors.
After a long break on fish-guix development, I have released version 0.1.2.1 of fish-guix today.
End of line. It would be good to keep up with weekly reports, but I just can't as I'm too busy.
Throughout this year dvn and myself have discussed design ideas.
Expect to see less frequent posts as it gets difficult to summarize or take the time to summarize my work. As I had to aquire a domain again for several reasons, you can now reach this website in addition to https://ng0.infotropique.org at https://n0.is and https://we.make.ritual.n0.is (and some other services got their old subdomains back, like https://c.n0.is, https://s.n0.is etc).
This April I announced the project that has been taking shape for a long time before the announcement, infotropique.
Memo to self: switch to another format. This time the timestamp in the date (always 12:34) almost matches the time I wrote this post!
I have released pycanberry version 0.1.1 today. This release continues the development the original author made.
I have released emacs-jinja2-mode-ng0 version 0.2.1 today. This release continues the development the original author made.
Not that much since I had technical issues for a couple of days and university started (which when occuring together at the same time is another box of issues you don't want to have).
This incomplete draft draft uses simplifications and generalizations, no technical correctness is implied. This does not reflect the authors knowledge of the topic, it is just a draft to keep thoughts on a topic.
I'll start a weekly report and reflection post on work I do. As soon as I find time to do a guessed collection of last week, I'll do the first one. I already reflect about my work, I just don't do it in a conventional and public form.
First preparation class in university, math, today. After years of not using much math at all I'm surprised how well that went (still I was busy from 8 - 11 in university and 12 - 22 at home (with some hours of breaks)).
I should and wil change the color theme of this log. Remains from old layouts.
A incomplete, minor roadmap collection. This post might receive updates in the future. This post is (mostly) outdated.
As you can see I have tried to improve the website for infotropique a bit (help with the website is still wanted though).
krosos started at some time around 2000 or 2002 with myself (ng0) doing live rehearsals with other people. The line-up changed many times, and issues (not related to people but composition and rehearsal) lead to the conclusion that krosos can't exist as a group formation. With the last line-up I produced (not: recorded) one EP ("Journey through Darkness") and one Album ("I"), both never saw the light of day until today and instead krosos went on hiatus.
I'll try an update of what I've been up to. I'll probably miss about 50% of it anyway.
Yesterday I finished a package I worked on for many moons.
I am currently trying to fix up the palemoon package I’ve had 98% completed at some point in the last year.
This is not suited for the official outlet, so it will be posted here.
I wanted to avoid this, but cutting down on costs and time spent with server administration has driven me back to use Github for this website.
I have released version 0.1.1 of fish-guix (completions for Guix for the FISH shell) yesterday with no release message/details.
Today I have released version 0.1.0 of fish-guix, completions for Guix for the FISH shell.
I’ve had my ~2 months break to recollect thoughts, reflect on what I have already achieved and now the time to plan new projects.
I plan to integrate smu (a simple markup) into Haunt. I also consider to re-implement or write bindings to prep (a small preprocessor with multilanguage support written in perl) at some point.
This article is a public draft, expect it to change. At this point it mostly originates from chats with some minor edits. If you read this, keep in mind: The pieces of information contained in here do not reflect the current ideas and research I keep offline.
I decided to keep this domain name for constructing an online showcase of my work and a simple web log. Furthermore it will serve as a platform for music once I get to finish the albums.
This occasionally updated posts describes the tentative roadmap of infotropique projects. Since I am not very good with being bothered to updated such documents, it naturally does not reflect ALL of infotropique. Eventually this will be moved to infotropique.org.
Today I'm announcing pragmatique, a new project.
This week I had another evaluation of my work, and for the live-system this means:
I started working on 0ad in August, the commits I'm working with are dated to the beginning of September.
December saw two releases of gnURL, version 7.52.0 and 7.52.1. Both releases suffered (as the previous release) from my change of the release system.
