Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
The falsehoods of anti-AGPL propaganda (2020)

> Configuration is just a short artifact. It's not a creative work and is therefore not copyrightable at all, whether by AGPL or otherwise.
I'm doubtful. For example https://github.com/wikimedia/operations-mediawiki-config is wikipedia's config. It is not short, and much of it is complex enough i think it would be copyrightable (ianal)
I agree though a very traditional list of key value pairs that are simple facts like where to find the db, might lack creativity to be copyrighted (ianal). But how many real deployed systems have that simple a config. More generally i would prefer that the license was less ambigious about this especially in an international context (e.g. rules are totally different in uk over what can be copyrighted)
> I'm not convinced obscurity helps against spam at all. DKIM and blocklists have done much more against email spam than any form of "security by obscurity" corporate scheme has.
Gmail et al use techniques beyond dkim that are secret. However i meant more like web spam where you can't just rely on source vouching for users. For example on wikipedia there is a feature where admins can write "code" that block patterns in edits. When used against persistent vandals, they are often secret lest they use the info to adjust behaviour. That's the type of thing i mean.
> if you are coordinating with the developers, then you have their explicit permission to temporarily withhold those changes (AGPL copyright holders can still grant exceptions to the license)
That only works if one entity holds all the copyright. Even then, does that mean forks cannot have coordinated disclosure?
Now that Reddit are killing 3rd party apps on July 1st what are great alternatives to Reddit?

Seeing this github thread made me seriously question their producct vision. If they can't figure out why users would want such a basic feature that all social media platforms have, and more importantly don't seek guidance from a product owner they are simply put, bad software engineers.

Since Reddit is turning to poop with these API changes, what social media alternative scratches the same itch?

Mastodon is a fediverse "micro-blogging service" full of technology-loving geeks, leftists, artists, and LGBT so a pretty similar audience as reddit https://joinmastodon.org/ I use it regularly, and even though it already got all the people who left twitter recently, it's still pretty nice
Reddit's days are numbered (link inside). Where will we go instead?

Sure! Here are the domain links to the decentralized alternatives I mentioned: 1 Steemit: https://steemit.com/ 2 Mastodon: https://joinmastodon.org/ 3 Scuttlebutt: https://www.scuttlebutt.nz/ 4 ZeroNet: https://zeronet.io/ 5 Aether: https://getaether.net/ Please note that these links are current as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, and there's a possibility that the domains or availability may have changed since then.
ATTENTION MOBILE USERS: further updates on Reddit fucking over 3rd party apps include Reddit charging some apps around $20 million per year to continue using the API.

From the Apollo dev: 📣 Had a call with Reddit to discuss pricing. Bad news for third-party apps, their announced pricing is close to Twitter's pricing, and Apollo would have to pay Reddit $20 million per year to keep running as-is.

And since it is part of the Fediverse, it's not only compatible with Mastodon, but also potentially with other open source Fediverse link aggregator projects, like kbin and brutalinks.
