Hey there, we still need volunteers to help us with the #RetroComputing devroom at #FOSDEM !

This year we need people to help with Q&A and moderate the chat after the talks, since each talk will have its dedicated Matrix channel…

So if you're interested in #ZX #FreeDOS #emulation #Mac68k #Gemini… we'll find you a speaker to go along with and help!

Contact us directly (you need a pentabarf account so we can assign you a talk)

There's a website but still unfinished: volunteers.fosdem.org/

Apps targeting Android SDK 30 published by F-Droid cannot yet be installed on Android 11. This affects at least FairEmail, Netguard, OpenVPN and a few others.

You might want to hold up upgrading your device to Android 11 for a few weeks if you rely on any of these apps.

As a developer, you might want to hold up upgrading targetSDK to 30 for a bit.

The issue is tracked here, including a workaround for getting your data back from FairEmail in case you already fell into this trap.
