Re: redmatrix and diaspora federation - we're a bit more than 1/3 of the way there after about a week of solid effort. We might be able to run some limited testing in the next week or two.

Just remember that the last 10% takes 90% of the time.

Also, friendica/redmatrix federation is a bit further down the road, but we should be able to communicate through the Diaspora channel (at least those friendica sites with valid certs; the others are out of luck I'm afraid).  

Importing RSS feeds is almost there today. That's just waiting on a discovery wrapper. It will probably land about the same time as diaspora.

[I told you there was method to my madness.]
I miss RSS feeds ...
That reminds me about another idea. But I will post that in the #brainstorm thread.
Planning - redmatrix v2

It's time to start thinking about what we want to have in redmatrix version 2 and how this will look and work, and which will be arriving before you know it. I've got my own personal list. If folks have other priorities, feel free to suggest them here.

I think the case in point is if somebody edits it on two sites simultaneously and is committed before each one gets the remote edit from the other. This is a bit of a copout - but in the usage we're talking about this would be extremely rare and not worth the millions of lines of code needed to resolve the conflict. We can solve it with "don't change the same thing on two sites at around the same time".

Although if we could pull in "etherpad-like" functionality at some point that would be a really, really cool selling point.
