I trained a neural network on 1,228 types of cookies and apparently these are what cookies sound like to it.

Months for sure. Unfortunately it's still just a side project, and I have a lot going on personally and professionally for the next few months.

@cambridgeport90
Hmm, are there any errors sticking out in your server logs when you try to follow the account?

@cambridgeport90
I haven't been able to reproduce the issue on my own instance yet to debug it.

@cambridgeport90
It's meant to automatically approve the follow request, but something in that process breaks down it seems in some cases.

@cambridgeport90
No, it should be automatic... That's definitely been buggy though. Something that is on my radar that should be addressed as a part of the V2 rewrite

I'm elsewhere in the #fediverse too, by the way: @blog is my weblog posting its content here more or less regularly, powered by #pterotype plugin (thanks to @jdormit for the great work on that).

@KaptainRio
My timeline is a little fuzzy right now because I'm not sure how much time I'll have to work on it this month (in my dream world, I can hack on projects full-time...). Best guess is it'll be sometime in the first few months of next year. Ideally, shouldn't behave any differently once I integrate the ActivityPub library back in - but it will be much more reliable since most of the plugin's complexity comes from its ActivityPub implementation.

@deadsuperhero
Yup! To be clear, you'll need to delete the plugin itself (by deactivating it then pressing the delete button) in order for it to send out the Delete activity - deleting the WordPress instance itself will have no effect.

@Alamantus I've been helping beta-test @jdormit 's #Pterotype plugin for WordPress, which enables both following from the fediverse and sending replies back as comments. Not exactly what you're asking for, but close.

@deadsuperhero
Pterotype will send out a Delete for the blog actor when it is deleted, but not when it is just deactivated. It's definitely possible that Mastodon will cache the Actor for a bit - I'm not sure how it handles Deletes for actors

@lain
Yeah fair enough. My library will handle signing and verification but since webfinger has to implemented at the server level that'll have to be handled by callers

@suitbertmonz Thanks for your patience with this. It's interesting that the problem persists on a second instance - makes me think there's actually something going wrong with sending back the accept from Pterotype rather than Mastodon caching a bad version of the blog actor, which was my original theory.

@lnxw37d2 Well, as long as it's compatible than apps built with my library will be able to federate with LitePub, I guess. I'm going to stick with the W3C spec on my end.

@lnxw37d2

Probably not - is LitePub supposed to be compatible with ActivityPub? I want to support the standard that other people will implement
