I have brought up an RSS-to-ActivityPub server. It can convert any RSS feed into a ActivityPub actor, so that one can follow them from Mastodon, Misskey or other ActivityPub compatible platforms to receive updates of the feed.
It's still under development so please do not abuse.

I have modified the code so that it should be compatible with latest version of Mastodon, Pleroma and Misskey.

Feel free to report any issues on GitHub:

Youtube-dl is a legitimate tool with a world of a lawful uses. Demanding its removal from Github is a disappointing and counterproductive move by the RIAA.

@forgefed hello, I hope you haven't forgotten this #Gitea issue:

One of the members said that they're waiting for people to work on the #federation:, so it'd be cool if you could #help them since one of the members of ForgeFed created the issue.

It's what the Dutch call "mustard after the meal", but here's my not very original statement.

Stop. Using. Github.

It can only hurt your project.

If your project relies on discoverability only the codehoster can provide, you're doing something wrong.

You inflate their importance by hosting your code with them and you allow this shit to happen. Don't.

On Wednesday the EU Commission published its new Open Source Strategy. We are pleased that the Commission recognises the benefits of #FreeSoftware and the four freedoms to use, study, share and improve, but the commission lacks concrete targets and indicators to implement the strategy. Without these, we worry that the strategy will end up accomplishing too little!
