smichel17 Looks related to some transition from Fossil, since the initial commit I have doesn't have the FossilOrigin-Name bit.
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 Okay, tracked it down, this likely happened on January 30th, with this commit 3dd63f1f2aed1ca18b7a5c531b5f3b452cde7b60
smichel17 That is, sync.sh is probably what rewrote the history, @mpcjanssen
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 And this is the last commit I can find that uses Fossil mpcjanssen/simpletask-android@a5365f1
smichel17 @mpcjanssen Did you stop using Fossil or did you find a better mirroring/sync solution?

sva on Freenode hello all - i wonder how to use the "prio" function on simpletask. i tried (a) and (A) but both just show up as normal text only, and none of them actually appear in the view of "filter => prio". any hints?
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 sva: (A) should be right.. Not sure why it isn't working without seeing the raw text, but try using the star icon when adding/editing the task and that will certainly set it correctly.
matrixbot
@matrixbot
sva on Freenode smichel17: ah nice - funnily after using the start once, the other tests also appeared with the prio correctly ;) what a glitch! :D thanks very much!
matrixbot
@matrixbot
sva on Freenode s/start/star/ i meant.
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 Weird.. Well, if it happens again, you can grab a debug log so we can look into it further (Settings > Other >View debug log — easiest to look at it using "share" and then getting it to desktop in some way, like email)

sva on Freenode i actually re-install my phone in the next weeks, i will check on it then to see if its reproduceable
sva on Freenode cause now it seems to work instantly
sva on Freenode :) just installed new, was a taskwarrior user but never used the sync thing. since I got a new (keyboard-) phone finally I though i'll give some app-thingy a try. so far it works all well
sva on Freenode (using it on that single device only)

mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) @smichel17 yes I did try to sync with fossil maybe that did something under the covers
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) By adding a fossil id
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Unintended side effect
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 Yeah. Quite unfortunate.. And I guess github isn't configured to prevent force pushing master, that would have caught it
smichel17 Totally unrelated, I submitted a talk to libreplanet 2021 that features Simpletask :)
matrixbot
@matrixbot
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Cool, it's available already?

@matrixbot
smichel17 I only submitted a proposal. Talks haven't been chosen yet. LibrePlanet 2021 is march 20-21.

smichel17 The "nontechnical" trojan horse: Design for tech-illiterate users need not undermine Software Freedom values

Locked-down devices, forced updates, removal of customizability and powerful/useful features — these restrictions are often implemented in the name of accessibility to "nontechnical users". These design practices are based on an implicit assumption that these people will never become "technical users". And, by removing any incentive for people to become "technical users", they create a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The premise of Software Freedom is that people should be in control of [what code runs on] their computers. Tech literacy is necessary to excercise this freedom; it is a prerequisite for digital autonomy. Accepting that some people will never become tech literate is accepting that Software Freedom is not for everyone; it is an existential threat to this movement.

Fortunately, by "making simple things easy and hard things possible" we can design software which is usable by people at many levels of tech literacy.

I will elaborate on these ideas, with examples.

smichel17 The part of ST I intend to nutrition is the lua callbacks, which allow ST to support advanced features without complicating the base functionality for people who want or need something simple
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 s/nutrition/mention 😆
matrixbot
@matrixbot
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Ah yes that was the main driver for adding Lua
matrixbot
@matrixbot
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Also if i have some time the next week I will polish up the storage access framework version and make that the single Google play version
matrixbot
@matrixbot
mpcjanssen (@_slack_simpletask-todo_U0HCD26MS:matrix.org) Although it probably is not allowed to be called Simpletask. I am open for suggestions

smichel17 One thing I could do with an onParse — swap which symbol is called "list" vs "tag" 😆
smichel17 GTD calls for making lists based on context, but I think that's basically just an artifact of the fact that it was implemented on paper
smichel17 Because — the important thing about contexts is that you can see all next actions for a given context in one placed
smichel17 * Because — the important thing about contexts is that you can see all next actions for a given context in one place
smichel17 On paper the only way to do that is to write them all in the same list
smichel17 But digitally, you can write a checklist of actions needed for a project, and tag each of them with any appropriate context
matrixbot
@matrixbot
smichel17 And then have a view that just shows actions for a given context

tbh I also have very little ambition around ST on Android
While there's a few things here and there that could be better, it mostly works for me as-is
And more importantly, when I think ahead a year or few, I see myself running a GNU+Linux phone, not Android
