Step 3: no I was right the first time
So Google detests the AGPL license: https://opensource.google.com/docs/using/agpl-policy/ going as far as to demand this:
"Do not install AGPL-licensed programs on your workstation, Google-issued laptop, or Google-issued phone without explicit authorization from the Open Source Programs Office."
So to degooglify the internet everyone should choose AGPL for open source projects :)
I'm late to the party, but AFAIK, removing the git history is not a violation of the AGPL. Git is not even mentioned in GNU Public licenses... If you fork a GPL project and distribute the binaries (or services in the case of AGPL) you have to give the source code to the users in any form. You can even send each user a floppy disk with the code, if that's convenient.
Divisive Politics are destroying Open Source.
Hahahaahahaha holy shit. Hiveway is a fork of Mastodon with blockchain slapped on top, selling ICO tokens, and John McAfee is involved. Wew lad
again a great chance to introduce many new people to the #fediverse.
#Vero is getting hudge attention over #twitter. It's a new social network, co-founded by a capitalist that left thousands of their workers unpaid in a dessert camp, and even stoped food, electricity...suply.
- make that visable
- highlight the anti-capitalist values of the fediverse
- expand on the beauty of federation and free software
-> tweet by using #Vero
-> rt to give tweets higher ranking
-> spread it
