Holy shit, dockerhub, golang, google, and gitlab all blocked Iranian IPs, damn. I would’ve never thought fedora would go along with that too.

Anytime I’ve downloaded and installed a Fedora distro there was always a TOS mentioning not to use it for business with Iran, North Korea etc., so I’m not surprised about this latest development. OP has unfortunately been penalised just for living in the “wrong” part of the world. It sucks, but that’s the politics at the moment.

People who use Fedora and disagree with this shoult take a few minutes to send Fedora a message. i tried and failed to get Fedora Design Suite installed, so I don’t use fedora and NEVER want to try again. I felt their community was uninviting, unwelcoming.

Decisions like this and other political based decisions drove me away from linux. I don’t agree with bringing politics into it.

Does anyone know a reliable site to check if certain sites are reachable from Iran? I could only find this one, but its obviously wrong as it reports facebook and github as working. Specifically I would like to know if lemmy.ml and crates.io work (that would be enough to read lemmy docs, install it and federate).

As much as this sucks individually, I really see more opportunity then problems with that on a larger scale.

Loads of Iranian developers interested in working with decentralized alternatives that do not restrict them in the same way.

Indeed. I already spoke to some Iranians in my neighborhood in the context of the FedeProxy project, who specifically want to allow oppressed groups the opportunity to participate in any FOSS project unhindered by censorship and exclusion.

USA is waging an economic war and you are a casualty. It’s sadly working as intended :( It would be great if this spurred some developement of replacaments inside Iran.

do you mean government? While that might or might not be good (change doesn’t always mean better), it isn’t our place to change another country’s government or people.

I just recall that AWS servers are used by GitLab (or someone told me that). So that must their reason. I also wonder if religion is part of the reason - or, more accurately - the hatred between Iran and IsraEl. BigBiz runs the West and the government is their partner in a very fascist way.

I think there must be some valid reasons for some of this. But, i am really shocked that the FOSS world would do such things. Why GitLab? What reasons did GitHub have for doing it and then for reversing that decision? Try Debian instead. Not sure they’ll allow Iran IPs, either, though, since Debian has accepted lots of money from Google.

What is libre culture?

Libre culture is all about empowering people. While the general philosophy stems greatly from the free software movement, libre culture is much broader and encompasses other aspects of culture such as music, movies, food, technology, etc.

Some beliefs include but aren’t limited to:

  • That copyright should expire after a certain period of time.
  • That knowledge should be available to people, not locked away.
  • That no entity should have unjust control or possession of others.
  • That mass surveillance is about mass control, not justice.
  • That we can all band together to help liberate each other.

Rules

I’ve looked into the ways other forums handle rules, and I’ve distilled their policies down into two simple ideas.

  • Please show common courtesy: Let’s make this community one that people want to be a part of.

  • Please keep posts generally on topic

  • No NSFW content

  • When sharing a Libre project, please include the name of its license in the title. For example: “Project name and summary (GPL-3.0)”

Libre culture is a very very broad topic, and while it’s perfectly okay for a conversation to stray, I do ask that we keep things generally on topic.
