It's like everything is under water
I've contorted myself in every way in an attempt to drain or pop to no avail. I hate this
Just in case you didn't know:
#GIMP, #Krita @krita, #Inkscape @inkscape, #Scribus and many other great graphics tools are already available - free/libre to use, free to improve, free to share. Check them out! 💙
One of these is considered so dangerous by the government that there are laws mandating that both speed and watt limits be baked into the controller. The other one can go as fast as the operator damn well pleases, but is merely *expected* to slow down when appropriate.
Also, one of these kills people every day and is very hard to see children or short adults in front of you when you're operating it.
Guess which is which.
I have recently migrated to K-9 as an Android mail client after the drama that recently happened with #FairEmail.
Being an independent developer of an open-source mail client for mobile isn't easy. The developer of FairEmail has recently been quite open about the levels of stress he has been going through - also because of Google's harassment always looking for ways to take down his app.
So the shielding of Mozilla can definitely help and ensure that an email app keeps getting developed and supported. Sure, it's also an implicit admission that they've screwed up so much their mobile app strategy that they had to pick an open-source app built by a random guy and ask him if that could become the new Thunderbird mobile.
But I can't help with the feeling that independent developers who build stuff that big tech mafia dislikes can only keep doing so if they are protected by another company or by a foundation.
I don't know much about SMTP but there seems to be a key difference.
With SMTP you can via the #protocol determine what capabilities are present on the other end, whereas for AP this is totally opaque (you need to literally delve into the codebase of whatever is running in that endpoint to know).
#Fediverse would be served with a capability discovery mechanism and maybe conformance profiles.
