@alda @Sylvhem FYI Both OStatus and ActivityPub are W3C standards, though OStatus has been unmaintained since 2012

@gargron @Alda @Sylvhem OStatus didn't become an official W3C standard, though it did have a community group around it at one point.

@cwebber @alda @Sylvhem Oh whoops even worse. That being said, all things OStatus actually made use of, were indeed standards (Atom, ActivityStreams, WebFinger etc)

@gargron @Alda @Sylvhem Yup, didn't become an "official" standard itself, but it was a meta-standard built on top of real standards

@Gargron @cwebber Thank you to both of you for your explanations! It's really a great leap forward then and I'm really happy to see that Mastodon have taken it :).
Now I hope GNU Social, Pleroma and postActiv will follow us soon.
