Happy new 2018 year!
During last month, this happened:
spectrum build failure was resolved
To fix that, I submitted upstream a pull request with a trivial patch, which was accepted (not without a bit of bikeshedding with upstream maintainer).
biboumi, the awesome IRC gateway, was integrated to production service
biboumi is a great software, featuring a bunch of nice capabilities, for example, message archive access for IRC rooms user is attending. This means no more missed bits in IRC conversations!
biboumi previously could use only SQLite database, which was considered by me a major downside. Finally, with a help
of our very humble donation, the upstream maintainer recently added PostgreSQL support! Then, I have added it to
production server (as well as staging server dev.decent.im). Existing
irc.decent.im component, previously served
by Spectrum & libcommini based gateway, was replaced with biboumi, for convenience and clarity. (Previously I
considered putting it to horrific URI
one more user joined decent.im :)
Our server is not boasting a huge user base, but I value every person who puts trust into decent.im!
