FYI, the recent call by some folks for Eugen to step down from Mastodon, is an echo of sentiments years ago. Back then, they forked the codebase (Florence: https://github.com/florence-social/mastodon-fork) and pursued an open-governance model.
I think Florence has since fizzled out, but it was at least a real and earnest pursuit of a Mastodon fork -- which is the way to turn those sorts of demands into real, tangible action.
The core problem is, people are more likely to simply leave Fedi than migrate to a fork.
@lanodan Ah, thanks for mentioning this. I knew only about it and nothing deep, so i really don't know much about that history.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
