@newsbot "Major Bug" should be put behind the bars! Arrest them! 😂
Exasperated by Qt's buggy/janky built-in platform agnostic style engine, for my commercial software project ( https://cancel.fm/ripcord/ ), I wrote a new Qt style engine, Phantom, and also released it as open source: https://github.com/randrew/phantomstyle
The open source KeePassXC project has released version 2.6.0, which uses the Phantom code for their new cross-platform theme: https://keepassxc.org/blog/2020-07-07-2.6.0-released/
@ashwinvis @selea @syster @ChrisWere the solution is to realise there is no technical solution and its all part of what makes up doing software. you cant "just write code" if you want your program to be used by those socially messy human beings. were looking at decades of apolitical engineering and strategic separation of social and technical practice in the world of software... /rant++
@selea @syster @ChrisWere I find it ironic that we strive for decentralization and yet the development converges towards centralized development. Lines of code which are immaterial gets entangled in the power struggle and politics of who controls the "central" repo. The solutions exist and even when forges like sourcehut try to push this idea forward of decentralized development through email, I haven't seen a good example where "forks" coexist in harmony.

It mentions why geocoding is a hard job.
