Thank you everyone for sharing their #yunohost experiences and uses. I must admit that it has been a joyful marathon replying back to all you.
Not only have I had the chance to get a better grip on a selfhost solution, I have had the opportunity to find kindred spirits.
I have the next couple of days off and I do plan on taking action and investing the time with yunohost.
