Last week the Gujarat high court closed a case where a police officer had raped a minor & later married her. It was "full & final settlement", court said. Such unions are illegal, but, as @Article14live revals, they are backed by courts, police & families

Looking for some volunteers to test the diaspora-installer package in #debian.

All it takes is setting up a lxc container or vm locally, installing diaspora package and testing it in a browser on your host machine (create an account, post some status, share some photos etc).

Keep the package updated when new versions are released. Let me know if you are interested.

I was not very actively maintaining this package for some time, now planning to be more active.


Does anyone know of work with #BigBlueButton to integrate with IRC for room chat?

We're building a hallway track for a conference where we'll be using Freenode and Matrix as our primary chat platform

We want to dynamically create rooms in #BBB or #jitsi and then have corresponding IRC rooms be automagically opened as well

Our tech group has a plan to build it with jitsi, but we'll be using BBB for the talks and would rather not change video conference software
