have expressed interest in implementing , and are asking for detailed information on how to do that. Any suggestions for links to give them?

@strypey Federated #Dreamwidth would be SO AWESOME and do much to extend the platform's reach. Wohali in the linked discussion makes a valid point, though, that Dreamwidth circles are much finer-grained than Mastodon's "folower only" security level. Theoretically, though, DW could continue to have its (awesome) access controls on its own site while being compatible with federation on its outward face? If that makes sense?


@lj_writes good question, no idea. Maybe a bit of a chicken and egg situation? Not much point running your own instance of DW if it makes you an island, cut off from the rest of the DW community. Something federation could help with. @UserCoffee

@strypey @UserCoffee The devs certainly seem supportive of other people running the DW code, wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/ind and list interoperability among their guiding principles. dreamwidth.org/legal/principle In the end it's a question of priority and developer time, but If someone started, say, running a DW instance and successfully implemented ActivityPub that may get the devs' attention.
