. thanks: about: purism: dorota czaplejewicz

As you can see from dos Gitlab he slow down Commits from August 2023, samething to Angus Ainslie. To me something is happening… My estimates are that for some reason @dos is not active working for Purism.

After @Kyle_Rankin left Purism everything changed. My guess is that Purism might be suffering from financial problems, which is why they released an embarrassing tablet to get some money.

I like Purism and i am a big fan of Purism, Purism has given me like a dream Phone and Laptop and i have no words of gratitude towards for Purism. Wherever is happening on Purism i going to considerate to Donate $1,000.00 bucks. My best wishes for Purism and Programmers.


Sebastian chatted a bit in the Matrix rooms on the 28th. There’s no need to panic over a lapse in activity. The speculation about Purism isn’t productive.

If you want to do some digging, the SEC filings are publicly available.
If you look at offeringmemoformc.pdf, the “Financial Condition and Results of Operations” reveals some details about their revenue from 2021 to 2022; it also shows that Purism is engaged in settlement negotiations with a Plantiff.
Looking at the primary_doc.html form, the “Annual Report Disclosure Requirements” sections shows how many employees work under Purism, presumably full-time employees and not contractors. Within that section, it also discloses their income, costs, and other financial figures.


Thank you.

I was never employed by Purism, I work as an independent contractor. I haven’t done any paid work for Purism for some time now, but neither I cut my ties with Purism nor Purism did with me, so I’m looking forward to continue my work on the Librem 5.

Also, although mobile GNU/Linux is kind of my hobby too, I have (intentionally) directed my spare-time attention towards other things in the last months, to refresh my mind a bit and combat potential burnout. Those things combined result in the activity graphs you see :wink:

FWIW, right now I’m preparing myself for my talk on FOSDEM this weekend, describing in detail some of the work I did for Purism last year as a kind of a “debugging case study”: FOSDEM 2024 - Universal Serial Bug - a tale of spontaneous modem resets


I just discovered that @dcz is also doing a talk at FOSDEM.
Subject is Wayland’s input-method is broken and it’s my fault .


The Video is available.

If you want to contribute funds towards @dcz, we need to communicate outside the Purism community forums. I suggest using my Jitsi Meet instance as a bootstrap towards that discussion:


Private message me to schedule a time slot that works for both of us and/or suggest other accessible side-channel communication methods that respects our preferences.
