Re #ServiceInfo, latest updates in the #Feneas forum:

#fediverse #federation #nodeinfo
There is a PR with a lot of modifications, including name change to ServiceInfo.

I will be additionally doing the discovery changes discussed above tomorrow. Then I hope to produce a single HTML document for the spec instead of two separate markdown docs. After that, will be pushing for discussion to various places like project issue trackers and the W3C SocialCG group.

Feedback welcome.

Chat bridge across to Telegram

As per request from a community member, we've bridged our main chat room (` on #Matrix and `#feneas` on #Freenode) over to #Telegram. You'll find it at

Before deciding to do this, we had a [vote](!$ which passed 3 in favour, 1 against. There was enthusiastic discussion about this. Some people had concerns over promoting centralized services, however many people saw the benefits of enabling people on the centralized services to get involved on the #federated web via the tools they currently use.

We believe bridging is a good way to provide community tools like chat rooms, ensuring people can participate using the the tools they have at their disposal. For anyone looking for a chat tool, we do recommend using the #FOSS and #decentralized options out there, for example Matrix, #IRC or #XMPP - to name a few. We hope to convert some of the people on the Telegram side of the chat room to do so in the future :)

Our chat room currently has a few hundred people from all around the federated web. Looking forward to seeing you there too!

I'm so excited to present my work on #Fediverse-wide hashtag federation, search, and subscription at #ActivityPubConf.

The recording will be available later, but if you're interested in enabling a global consistent view on hashtags, know stuff about DHTs or #ActivityPub relays, you can have a look at the paper:

Please contact me about any questions, remarks or other feedback!

So here's a TL;DR:
Today I decided to automate and expand my open source and fediverse software funding to my favorite and most used projects. Every little bit helps. #foss #fediverse #linux
ServerInfo / ServiceInfo?

Some follow-up thoughts about `ServerInfo` (or maybe `ServiceInfo`? 🤔) in the #Feneas forum:

Comments, ideas, critique, improvements and general participation welcome!

I'm proposing a new version of a metadata document specification for servers in the #federated #web. This aims to collect the good and avoid the bad of the previous iterations, and to be flexible enough for a large part of the federated web to implement it.

Comments very much welcome, especially from #developers working on the federated web. Without getting enough people onboard there is no point in a new specification.

Finally, the fediverse icon mosaic is finished - and I love the result :blobheartcat:

Federated code hosting

Are you interested in #federated #code hosting? This term means a site like #GitHub, #GitLab, #Cogs or #Gitea - but instead of all servers being an individual part of the #web, they talk to each other just like servers in the #fediverse. Imagine being able to open issues, make pull requests and engage in discussion, to any other repository from your own personal code hosting server?

Approximately one year ago #Microsoft bought GitHub, kicking of something that become a group of people discussing formalizing a specification for federated code hosting platforms. This specification work ended up with the name #ForgeFed and is currently developed by the #Peers community. The end result will be a set of extensions on top of #ActivityPub that allows any code hosting platform to federate with any other code hosting platform.

ForgeFed is using the brand new #Feneas forum for discussing various spec items. Everybody is welcome to participate, though especially good would be to get people from the various code hosting platforms to give their thoughts about what they would be happy to implement.

Join the discussion here:

The ForgeFed repository for the specification is hosted at notabug.
