    Portraits for Heroes

    It's really near the top of my list for A24, but please feel free to remind me as well Nescio

    In their FAQ (https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com/faq) it is stated: So no exception. What we could do is accept PRs on GitHub and repatriate them on Phabricator, but that is tedious. I am thinking that we should maybe have a bot on GitHub that automatically puts the contributions on Phabricator, to open the development to GitHub lovers, but that is work we are unlikely to complete before October 31st. To consider for the future I'd say.

    Donations via Liberapay

    If the people behind the current pledges to our Twitter account read these lines, thank you so much we hope to be able to get your donations someday.

    We can contact them, of course, but I don't think they will make an exception. This event is not really pro-open source, it's basically pro-GitHub. Nothing wrong with that, they have money to support the projects on their own platform, it's normal that they use it - but we are not based there.

    I don't think a vote is warranted, as long as the whole Treasury Committee is on board with this and SPI is not a source of concern on the matter

    User statistics

    Could you share this on Phabricator? See https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/SubmittingPatches for more info. You can have feedback and discussion with the developers there. Such a script would probably be placed under source/tools/, in its own new directory. Thanks for your contribution!

    How to build 0ad-data

    This is absolutely not a secret Our distribution script can be found at https://code.wildfiregames.com/source/0ad/browse/ps/trunk/source/tools/dist/build.sh 0ad-data doesn't only contain the public mod, it also contains the mod mod and the config. As for how Debian packages 0ad-data into a .deb (not a secret either), you can look at https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/0ad-data, especially the VCS links at the top-left of the page. Other distributions have other package tracking systems.

    I do not know whether monthly is already too frequent for SPI But that was Aviv's concern about the idea.

    I discussed Patreon (and Liberapay) with @Jeru: the main limiting factor is SPI's ability to handle the money when it comes in frequent and small amounts. The one-time donations we get already take a lot of time to get to us, so we can't overwhelm SPI's treasury with frequent transactions.

    User statistics

    We can add in the list of purposes of the lobby privacy policy that we may publish anonymous statistics covering all active users. This is not an issue since the published result will not contain personal data, but we have to disclose it to the users since the calculations will be based on personal data. In order to help, you can contribute scripts that crunch the data and generate the stats. We cannot share actual data for you to crunch them, but you can create a local lobby with dummy accounts (for instance in a virtual machine) in order to generate a database that you can test your scripts on.
  11. Just as smiley said, the big issue was GDPR and the bad timing with holidays. It was difficult to work around an issue that needed an expertise nobody had at first. But we're getting there, and we fixed more things than we originally planned in the re-release. Thanks for your patience

    Lobby server downtime

    The lobby is now up and running on a brand new server. Registrations are open. It is now more robust against security issues, and it will be a good basis to improve it further. Those improvements will be carried out by our new Lobby Administrator, @user1! He assisted me in the upgrade today, and it worked way better, so this is a very good news Happy playing, and don't hesitate to report issues here!

    Lobby server downtime

    We are ready to perform the upgrade of the lobby - may it be successful this time! A few things you should know: We are going to stop the lobbies for all versions of 0 A.D. prior to A23. This is the thing that failed last time: A22 was no longer compatible with the upgraded version of the lobby server. People connecting with older versions of 0 A.D. will see the room message telling them that they should upgrade, but there will be no bots allowing them to host and rate games. This time there will be minimal downtime. Instead of shutting everything down during the user database migration, which takes a huge lot of time, we will keep the old lobby running. When we fire the new one up, all user accounts from after the start of the migration will have disappeared - so in order to minimize the inconvenience, registration of new user accounts is going to be disabled this evening (UTC / Europe times). I will post here when the registration is enabled again. There will be a short downtime at the beginning (a few minutes) while we deactivate the registration; and a slightly longer one when we are ready to launch the new server. TL;DR The lobby will keep working as usual except for registrations, and versions of 0 A.D. older than A23 will be unsupported after the upgrade. We will also have a surprise announcement when the upgrade is complete Happy playing.
  14. Welcome! Don't hesitate to say hello on the IRC channel, even though the development is a bit blocked these days, we are here to get you started with version control and other programming/contribution quirks Get more information here: https://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/GettingStarted
