As you may know, Trisquel is sovereign over its infrastructure. This means all of the services offered by Trisquel are managed by us, humans. We only rent the hardware and do everything else ourselves. Until now the git repositories were exported using gitweb and updated using shell accounts on the development box, but that has changed and we will be using gitlab for managing core repositories for the Trisquel project from now on.

These are exciting changes, specially the ability to allow developers to host their git repositories in the Trisquel infrastructure. Gitlab also allows for requesting merges of contributed code (also known as "pull requests" in the github world), so...

Trisquel 7.0 release, (re)introducing Trisquel EDU

In this talk, the project founder Ruben Rodríguez will explain why the only tools that should be used in a school are those that allow and encourage the students to use, study, improve and share them freely.

As a way to show this idea, we will go through the release of the latest Trisquel version,...
