#Linux People: Help Needed!

I've been contacted by a teacher I had back in high school who now works at the Ministry of Education (Fiji).

He wants to include a brief chapter about #FOSS in the year 12 computing textbook, but he is unfamiliar with #opensource... so he has asked me to provide the passage.

I not sure what I should include, so I'm asking for suggestions, so far I have:

What is Open Source?

FOSS stands for free and open source software

  • Free Software
  • the "free" does not only refer to price
  • ethics are a big concern // why?
  • software or users should not be restricted in any way, e.g. DRM, EULA, propriety formats // example situations demonstrating this
  • users should have the ability to view the code and make changes to it themselves
  • movement started by Richard Stallman in 1980's - inspired by the free sharing of software that occurred before everything became commercialized // include?

- // add more

  • Open Source
  • main concern is the practical advantages of Free Software
  • main idea is that if the code is made public, anyone who uses it has to share any improvements made // exceptions, MIT
  • it allows companies and businesses to improve their software for free // examples
  • it allows smaller companies to compete // examples
  • you can still make money from open-source software, eg. license could prohibit commercial use without a purchase // examples
  • you can build propriety products on top of open source ones e.g. MIT license // elaborate
  • // add more
  • FOSS
  • it is more secure, other people can look for vulnerabilities and fix them
  • it is more accessible, there is no cost barrier and formats are not proprietery
  • it is more flexible and portable
  • FREEDOM!
  • // add more
  • // FOSS software examples
  • // section on why certain MS and Apple practices are not acceptable
  • // simplify

at this point I've hit a writers block... and since this is about the FOSS community, I'm asking the community to contribute to this =D

Welcome another new contributor!

Amir Karimi came in and did some good #Hacktoberfest work by fixing an issue with remote profiles that have relative image urls. Now all imported profiles will get absolute image urls.

Thanks Amir!

#Learn by doing, when learning about #Python or any other #programming language! Tutorials, books and courses are really only good for small talk material or to bring on an appetite.

This is where #opensource is a good weapon. #Contribute and learn real world skills.

If you're knowledeable about Gentoo and libtool (and maybe NSS too) you could help fix this bug. https://gnunet.org/bugs/view.php?id=5078

RTFD!

We now have initial #documentation set up at socialhome.rtfd.io

Feedback welcome. Includes installation (for #Ubuntu 14.04) and basic configuration. Still needs a lot of things like feature roadmaps and of course installation docs for other platforms. Actual user help pages will are planned to be inside the app itself.

Anyone want to #contribute installation docs for their favourite platform? Also, a #Docker file would be fantastic.

Ps, want to chat about #Socialhome? Join #FreeNode #socialhome channel or our Gitter chat and say hi.
