PwOSS - 2021

I know, I said That's it. but I changed my mind.
I had to change something because it became too much for me - no burnout or anything like that, but unfortunately a day has only 24 hours and there are other nice things to do 😉 Because it's been more or less a one-man-army project so far, it's time to minimize it.

*Special thanks to Saber for his beautiful writing of some old Manjaro/Arch explanations (which are still on the wiki) and Adam for starting the ISO (archiso) script and his great help with the logo/inkscape and so on.
I'm curious if mfor will continue to contribute. Writing News, ISO script ... whatever you want 😏


Changes

Website

To minimize the time, I needed a new website. To give other people the opportunity to write their News, Tutorials etc.. This is still a work in progress - RSS needs to be integrated. Since I'm not a webdev (or a dev at all), I need to do a little homework on how this works. Also more "facelifting" for different devices needs to be done. Some images are quite large on smartphones, for example. A "navbar" burger ... .
The entire website is also in our git repository. I have decided to go for a quick solution with html5up.net. I have changed a few things. You can compare both source codes if you like.

News

A proper explanation how to create news is available in our wiki.

Server

Also the server/hoster has changed. Instead of Linode I moved everything to netcup (Germany). I have split the servers so that Matrix gets more power.

Update interval

The update interval for the server - every month ends form now on. The main reason, sure time, but also a hardware defect that forced me to buy a new server and the whole set up has changed (proxmox, opnsense ...). But I still use Arch as a server, you can ask your questions on Matrix or on Git (issues) if you like.


That's It

Again!? This time in a good way 😉.
Looking forward to the next year! Hoping that more people will tackle the issue of privacy in our horrible digital world.
So far, so good. I wish you a great Christmas and a good start into the new year.
