      Ferdi developers have decided to hide the issue tracker behind a paywall (you need to be a $9/month sponsor to see it), which is not really a good sign for an open source project. They first said it was because the issue tracker might leak private data, but they later admitted on Twitter that it was just a lie… More information here https://www.reddit.com/r/getferdi/comments/s511gn/what_happened_to_github_issues_for_ferdi/ and here https://getferdi.com/faq/why-the-issue-tracker-was-disabled/
