People asked about what is going with our little project, so we wrote a little blog post about that https://parast.at/blog/2021/01/27/a-tough-year.html
@bgcarlisle I don't think we have plans for migrations. We haven't looked at how it is done currently and that sounds like a hard problem to solve.
I know some people tried to do masto -> pleroma or the otherway around and that didn't matterialise because it is quite hard.
So I am talking minimal interoperability
@bgcarlisle Hum, some amount of it yeah.
I don't think we plan to support the full AP specs, more like bare minimum to get us going
A small reminder that if you have question on #parastat , you can always @ this account.
The answer will likely take sometime, but usually we reply to everyone that has questions.
(note: @ our individual accounts with generic question is bad form tho)
OCAP is there to fix ActivityPub problems, but doesn't change AP fundamentally.
Maybe there are voices that never make it to the W3C.
Maybe design by committee is not the only way we should build the fedi.
We think that there is power in diversity.
People rolled their own protocol before, the fediverse has quite a few: Dispora, ActivityPub, OStatus, Zot, DFRN already (handy picture attached).
I'd argue Mastodon has been and is a success despite underlying protocol(s).
@schmittlauch There will be one of us at fosdem, so maybe not a rounded representation of the whole project/team.
On AP, we probably plan to do both communication on a subset of the feature. It is not written yet, so I cannot really tell you more than that.
Compromise are usually good, nothing fits every use case right.
We might just not share the same ones to the w3c working groups on social stuff.
I'm not sure where you get the idea of proprietary protocol, it wont be proprietary
