After the fall of the Roman Empire, elephants virtually disappeared from Western Europe.
Since there was no real knowledge of how this animal actually looked, illustrators had to rely on oral and written transmissions to morphologically reconstruct the elephant, thus reinventing an actual existing creature. This tree diagram traces the evolution of the elephant depiction throughout the middle ages up to the age of enlightenment.
This has been a major disservice to open source software. Offering 11-year-old, barely security-patched software to misinformed users. Nothing to be proud of, #Apache Foundation.
Doodle is changing. And it stopped being actually useful for me. I spent an hour looking and testing alternatives. I need to create a pool for voting on which day is best for the event and https://framadate.org/abc/en/ is the best working alternative I have tried. You are welcome.

I just found out that @codeberg ia doing custom domain for pages. So you can host your pages on Codeberg and use your own domain. Lot of people stuck with GitHub because it provided pages. Now a lot of people can move to Codeberg and become free from GitHub. Amazing news.
