just tried SiYuan (A privacy-first, self-hosted knowledge management app)
After install and open it asks me to accept something written in Chinese script. Somewhat strange because the description and website apparently don’t have any problems with English.
Did anyone check this?
Yep, you need to open an upstream issue.
All function except the sync function still works without an account.
I’ve added an annoyed post upstream
what’s the difference for an “offline-first” app?
If the accept/decline buttons can be in English, the text should be as well.
I guess they don’t have a good lawyer for the English version.
Anything on top should be dismissible, ignored. But … if I’m force to agree with something else… the app is no longer FOSS.
that’s not how it works, imho
could be about anything, IF it blocks me from running the app if I don’t “give the correct answer” then it’s not FOSS
I feel it sounds like the “I’m 18 years old.” checkbox.
