@strypey oh noes
@strypey Please do.
@strypey I talked about it with Tent devs, but it never went anywhere. We initially talked to them during the time that Makr.io was a thing. At the time, Tent couldn't support a multi-tenant server that could scale. They eventually spent so much time reinventing the wheel that their entire project went nowhere.
@strypey It's not really going anywhere. The flagship instance, cupcake.is, appears to still be running. However, the community left a long time ago. Tents biggest problem is that they wanted to reinvent the wheel and had no interest in working with existing protocols or standards bodies.
@strypey It had a lot of extremely good ideas, but most of what is needed is now possible with ActivityPub.
@strypey That's sort of been my informal function for the last several years, but it requires studying each project's internals and user/developer community. I've jumped around about 5 different federated projects overall.
I would say that most of us are starting to lean towards ActivityPub, but there is some apprehension on the whole "Design by Committee" approach to protocol specification.
@strypey It's a difficult situation. There's no central meeting place to hash things out, and occasionally there are hostilities between heads of projects.
It would make sense to direct people towards ActivityPub, but until a project actually seriously pledges to adopt support for it, we're all in sort of a neutral space.
