This is definitely an interesting concept, it’s GPL3.0 too, but Mozilla states on the page that they don’t recommend the app due to its ability to potentially steal data. I’d say, proceed with caution.

mozilla puts that warning in almost all extensions. in a sense it’s just a reminder that extensions aren’t checked by mozilla so you install them on your own etc.

Still though, can’t be too careful. I’d check out the repo and see that it’s got a bit of a following first.

Someone on Mastodon said that /u/dessalines was involved with this (made sense at the time since Lemmy is an option).

/u/dessalines, can you confirm or deny?

I’m not involved w/ it, but I think the creator might be on masto. Anyway the repo is open source so I doubt its stealing data, I don’t know what makes mozilla put that on apps.

I think it’s probably just the permissions it requires and the fact that it makes requests to external sites (in order to post stuff).

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
