I've finished writing part 1 of "OcapPub: Towards networks of consent", which is to say the "Conceptual Overview" section gitlab.com/spritely/ocappub/bl

There's a lot there already, and we haven't even gotten to Part 2, the "How to Build It" section yet. I'll begin work on that tomorrow.

What's here already is more or less an explanation of *why* OcapPub is taking the particular direction it is taking, and why other approaches run into serious problems.

@rocx Hey I really dug that article you wrote on dealing with multiple Github accounts. I'm fortunate enough to only need one at the moment, but you've got an engaging writing style and the doodle that went with it is just fuckin' rad.

Great blogpost by @jakob ... and great hacking over the course of this summer, too!

Two things that scream "we didn't think out database design through properly":

- You can't change your username.
- You can't have "special characters" in your name.

I was hoping to take some time to sit down and just relax this weekend, but it looks as though I'm going to have to debug an autotools issue.

"guix deploy" is in git master! Amazing work @jakob ! (and thanks for co-mentoring @dthompson for co-mentoring) lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

Give it a spin and see what you think!

Hey, 'guix deploy' made its way into upstream today. Thanks for committing my patch series, @cwebber!

@enkiv2@eldritch.cafe I really appreciate that he points out the ephemerality of IRC as a feature, it's too often that I see technical people tout persistence as a feature when in reality it's often nothing more then a ploy to keep people glued to their screens rather then being able to focus their limited mental energies on more important things.

Hey, what about that new federated microblogging platform? What was it called again?

But I'm going to have to wait to actually send my responses to these emails, it seems.

@ng0 @cbaines Oh I didn't see that :) github.com/alphagov/govuk-guix

It may be hopeful thinking on my part; this is actually a dream of mine that eventually Guix can be used for completely reproducible development and devops workflows from top to bottom.

The work that @jakob is doing on "guix deploy" will hopefully help us get to that vision faster...
