Is anyone/company offering #Peertube as a service? Like how @mastohost is "Mastodon-as-a-service"?

On the way to pick up a package, I took a detour to do some surveying. I bumped into, who asked if I was also out doing surveying

I created a #JOSM Validator ruleset to warn of source=* tags on objects. It can be enabled directly in the JOSM preferences. #openstreetmap

So I was browsing #openstreetmaps in my neighbourhood and realised there were mistakes, some streets didn't exist or the roads were blocked by a gate. Same map details more or less on Google's Map and it lead me to "fix the map". This was a good couple days ago and I don't know how osm works and everything but I was using OpenTracks just now. They have a cool feature with saving your route on an OSM thing. And I just realised that the map had changed! My fix was used in updating the stuff!

The new version of (v26) has a fantasic new feature. It's much faster when download quests, and now will show you all the quests in an area. It's made things so so much faster & easier to use.

It's back to looking at again! I gotta parse some into the much more useful file.

context: I'm from Ireland, which uses PR-STV voting system, and the uses a very similar system (but with fractional votes) for electing to the Board.

The OSMFR PeerTube Instance <> doesn't have open registrations.

Any recommendations on a good PeerTube instance to host a possible video on (It would be related)

In a few days (9 Nov), I (& others from the Board) will do an about on reddit.

You can now submit questions! 🙂 Ask us anything!

#OpenStreetMap people have a whole PeerTube instance of their own, just filled to the brim with OSM talks!

A lot of French, like you might guess from the URL, but a fair amount of English talks too.

I have a few dozen linux servers, with some spare disk capacity on each. Is there any dirt simple "shared netwroking drive"/"distributed filesystem" I can install on each? I just wanna share a few ~X00GB traballs around easily.

Only a few days left to nominate yourself to run for the Foundation Board of Directors! It's a lot of work, but don't feel like you're not good enough. 🙂
I'm on the board, feel free to ask me anything.
