User experience

Hot topics on our help desk

  1. Multiple users reported having trouble importing keys in Seahorse.

  2. We also had some reports about issues with Nvidia graphics cards.

  3. macOS users were affected by a bug in Etcher.

Infrastructure

  • We finished updating the list of members in our signing key revocation mechanism. (#16665)

    We lost 5 members and added 8 new members. So the resiliency of the scheme was increased overall. Thanks again to all the new members :)

Funding

  • Received a very generous donation of 6 bitcoins from PrivCoin.

  • We blogged about our plans for 2020.

  • Our fundraising campaign is doing pretty well.

    Compared to the same period in 2017 and 2018 (first 41 days):

                   2016       2017        2018       2019
                   ----       ----        ----       ----
    Amount         54 925 €   54 873 €    28 854 €   48 710 €    69%
    Count            1124        717        1182       1084     -16%
    
    

    Final amount 76 055 € 101 644 € 74 480 €

    We are doing pretty good in terms of both amount and number of donations thought we're not set any record in either metrics.

    This is not due to the lack of counter this year because the first 2 weeks of this year were much worse than last year (when they was no counter yet) and weeks 3-5 were better (when we had a counter already).

    We cannot really explain these 16% less donations but it's not a big deal either.
