Oh, thank you all, guys. It's been too long since I spent some time on Hubzilla.

This is long (about an hour) but worth the time.

...and today move, yeah is really bad when it comes to fighting terrorism but just dedicated to maintain power. ...to much oil in the region to miss out on that.
And an idipendent kurdish state, with forces of PKK, Perschmerga, YPG...would mean loosing all control once it's settled.

Federated Groups/Forums
Creating groups/forums which federate across all the metaverse protocols is quite a challenge. Some of the issues are

- non-standardised group tag indication
- very few projects support groups/forums
- most protocols do not support comments from members of other services, requiring us to forge comments by the forum channel owner when delivering to a different network

Action items/deliverables:


  • Allow both zot (@group+) and ostatus (!group) tagging methods
  • support tagged groups from zot
  • support tagged groups from diaspora
  • support tagged groups from ostatus
  • support tagged groups from activitypub
  • make zot forums discoverable via ostatus (initial tests indicate ostatus group information may not be available via webfinger)
  • discover all protocols available to all connected channels so that we know which protocol combinations will require comment/like forgery for any given author
  • discover all protocols available for zot channels
  • forge comments from ostatus/activitypub so they will be accepted by and seen on diaspora
  • forge likes from ostatus/activitypub so they will be accepted by and seen on diaspora
  • forge comments from diaspora/ostatus so they will be accepted by and seen on activitypub
  • forge likes from diaspora/ostatus so they will be accepted by and seen on activitypub
  • activitypub (destination) forgeries will not be able to correctly display inline profile photos of the forged author due to Mastodon's aggressive HTML filtering, so restrict forgery atttribution to name only
  • forge comments from diaspora/activitypub so they will be accepted by and seen on ostatus
  • forge likes from diaspora/activitypub so they will be accepted by and seen on ostatus
  • ostatus forgeries MAY not be able to correctly display inline profile photos of the forged author, so restrict forgery atttribution to name only

Update: This is either madness or genius... I'll let you make that call.  


- an alternative to comment forgery is to provide 'relay identities' which are essentially proxy identities on the forum system which can participate as equals on the walled networks. This will provide a more seamless member and content experience (across all of the federated protocols) but there will be difficulties in social interaction (making friends, etc.). Granted these interaction problems will exist no matter how it is architected since the walled networks do not recognise or know how to communicate with networks outside of their own.

In this model a Diaspora forum member (for instance) can post on a red/hubzilla forum which also contains ActivityPub members. Comments/likes which are sent to the ActivityPub network will be sent by a pseudo-identity which appears to originate on the red/hubzilla site. The profile photo and profile URL and name will be that of their Diaspora identity. The 'actor' object and signing keys however will point to a faked entry on the Hubzilla site. The same would happen going the other way from the ActivityPub walled network to the Diaspora walled network. In this case a webfinger request would respond with the proxy key and a fake hcard.

Care would have to be taken for each protocol to provide the bare essential information that would allow comments/likes to validate successfully on the (target) walled network and where possible redirect to the original site for making connections if the destination site was multi-protocol enabled.

Madness or genius? How about both... mad amount of work (I assume) but to create something amazing lightyears before everyone else:-)

I have to admit, at first, I thought it was an American trying to say German "schöen" before I realized it was Yiddish "schoen". :facepalm :laughing:

@mrjive I notice that hubchart-tarine appears to be offline. We provide links to the site charts in /pubsites so just wondering if I should remove these or if there is another url.

Oh yes, definitely @Paolino !

Hi! Sorry but recently I'm seldom online.
Hubchart was on openshift v 2.0 so it was terminated with the platform. I backed up the source before openshift's departure, but I practically have no chance to revamp it at the moment. I'm studying, working and practicing 3 different jobs so it's not time for adding more pressure :(
Anyway, sources are safe (and public) on github and I hope I will give back life to them sooner or later:

Some rare glimpses -
