Software-code is reflecting culture & mindset of programmer.

(1) Define culture and mindset of #mastodon & #pleroma programmers.

(2) Show, how hypothesis applies to code, protocols & features of #mastodon & #pleroma.

If there's anything hacking on postActiv has taught me, it's why the fediverse hasn't moved forward in years.  Instead of collaborating, people go off on their own projects that duplicate work and effort for pretty much no gain.  It's not surprising: everyone wants to be a chief, no one wants to be an indian, so to speak.  I only made postActiv to push GS forward since the issues and PRs weren't getting put in a time fashion, but this isn't the first time someone who has had the same experience has ignored it to go off and do their own thing.

We're just going in circles and circles, all the while wondering why we get nowhere.  Hubzilla and Diaspora are the ones actually solving the hard problems of the fediverse, and by and large they've been ignored too.  Actually fixing things isn't "sexy"

Hier läuft's auf all.inkl. Bislang gut.
I like the idea of friendica developers that want friendica to be as easily installed as wordpress is. That's a point why I don't turn my back on friendica, although hubzilla works pretty much the same.

Problems with connection to Mastodon

Stephan Maus
!Hubzilla Support Forum Good morning Hubzilla-People!

When I'm trying to connect to a #mastodon - user, I get the error-message "channel dicovery failed". This is very strange because several days ago, I succeeded in connecting to some mastodon-users and I see them in my connection-list (although I don't really know if I still see their posts).

Do you have any idea what happened?

in truth I have always had some problems with the federation with gnusocial and mastodon, sometimes it works, others not ....Mike always does miracles (for federating), but on the other hand/side they often "destroy" these miracles.

there is no comparison with the-federation (the federation using diaspora protocol), that works much better, more stable.
Very interesting. It works for me if the other person follows back... or something like that.
Derartige Installationen auf Shared Hostern sind halt auch immer so eine Sache. GS ist bei mir langsam aber sicher sehr lahm geworden. Friendica dagegen ist am schnellsten bislang und es lässt sich auch so einfach wie WordPress installieren.
