It also includes a page dedicated to our awesome ,

This page is designed as an entrypoint to the community:

- Where can you get in touch with the community?
- What can you do to help the project?
- How can you get help?

And if you need to contact core contributors and moderators directly, the contact page got you covered as well ;)

Allright, our new website is now up and running at 馃帀 馃帀 馃帀

It features:

- Cute illustrations drawed by @robin
- Cleaner, mobile-first design
- More accurate and accessible explanations about the project
- A brand new pod selector
- A brand new "Applications" page listing Funkwhale-compatible apps
- Internationalization-ready content, so we can translate the site in many languages!

Many thanks to testers, proof-readers, designers and everyone who helped!

@Naughtylus @skunksarebetter it's not doable right now, but tag/genres support is probably the next big feature to ship, based on the community feedback :

The anti-abuse audit started by @GinnyMcQueen on is now complete, and we're going to the next step: determine the priority of each suggested solution.

As with our previous roadmap poll, we're looking for your vote here. Considering the list of compiled solutions, what are the most important ones? Let us know!

(you'll need to join the Loomio group at before casting your vote)

@thoughtcrime from the wikipedia page of the license :

> The GNU FDL is incompatible in both directions with the GPL鈥攎aterial under the GNU FDL cannot be put into GPL code and GPL code cannot be put into a GNU FDL manual.

@marsxyz @funkwhale Yes there is:

There were a few requests to add support for it and I really liked it after trying it out.

@thoughtcrime apparently it is not compatible with the GPL/AGPL so I don't think so :/

@maloki thank you for the kind words, it means a lot 鉂わ笍

Hello Community! As per our ongoing audit started by @GinnyMcQueen a few weeks ago, we know have a pretty clear overview of the weaknesses of the software, and possible solutions to improve the situation:

We're going to start a an open poll this friday to have a clearer idea on each item priority and organize the development.

You have two remaining days to add your feedback to the thread in case we are missing anything :)

Thank you!

@algernon that was my impression too, but having some actual evidence it is compatible and supported si really helpful!

@funkwhale To put it another way, you want a license for art that is compatible with the AGPL3, otherwise distribution becomes a bit of a problem: if the Art license is not compatible with the AGPL, you can't distribute the whole package, because AGPL can't be mixed with incompatible licenses.

This leaves you with either AGPL-compatible software licenses, or CC-BY-SA. There might be others, but these are the safest bets.

@funkwhale AGPL3+CC-BY-SA work nicely together. CC-BY-SA is one-way compatible with (A)GPL3+ too:

Meaning, you can take a CC-BY-SA art and bundle it with GPL3 source, where the whole collection is under GPL3 (but lifted out, art is still CC-BY-SA).

The linked post seems to talk exactly about the Funkwhale case: creative work under CC-BY-SA being adapted and melded into source code covered by (A)GPL3.

(Sorry, not gonna join Loomio just to post this)

If you have some experience with licensing of non-code assets (e.g illustrations) in open-source projects, we'd like your feedback here:

Basically, since Funkwhale is AGPL licensed, what would be the best license for graphical assets that may be embedded in the software?
