Hyperbola suspends its donation account in Liberapay

2018-08-04

Since Liberapay's payment processor (Mangopay) is throwing them out, we are evacuating the remaining money from our account in Liberapay to our Bank account (Swissquote) in Switzerland.

Currently, Liberapay requires us to configure a Stripe payment account to receive donations. Stripe is an US-based service (Stripe Inc. is a registered ISO of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., Concord, CA, USA) which affects our Social Contract.

Happy birthday Hyperbola!

2018-04-15

We are pleased to celebrate the first Hyperbola's birthday!

One year ago, our founders began the official development of Hyperbola launching its official IRC channel in Freenode and webserver (located in Bissen, Luxembourg) on Gandi. This spawned a new era in the history of distributions by merging 2 different concepts under freedom principles; the Arch model plus the Debian development model.

A lot has happened to the project and its community in this time such as the official support to the Init Freedom Campaign, new aliases for our releases using galaxy names as codenames and a build server donation ...
