I wrote up some Opinions™ about iterating on the #ActivityPub protocol and how we can continue improving it without sacrificing compatibility or fracturing the network: https://jeremydormitzer.com/blog/activitypub-good-enough-for-jazz/. Comments welcome here or on the post.
@how So I just register for the forum? When is the round table, and is it okay if I participate if I'm not attending FOSDEM?
@jdormit Yes please, or simply pass me your email in a PM and I invite you. All the answers to your questions are in the welcome message :)
@jdormit your reasoning is quite sound and holds some merrit. it is a good base for discussion. And it solves the question of trow away and restart. It does not break current projects and they probably can easily implement future iterations.
If everyoen agrees, the next discussion point should be what features to include. There are many shortcomings to cover. And the first of all is make AP implementation more uniform. Litepub, pleroma are signs AP has a tendency to splinter
Right, I think that @firstname.lastname@example.org 's ideas have a lot of merit, as long as they can be implemented in a way that doesn't leave behind the existing network.
