This server is hosted in the USA(!!!)
There are several endpoints: /api/v1/instances gives a paginated list of instances, and seems to be the *only* one that doesn't require authentication.
There's also /api/v1/statuses and /api/v1/users. Not sure how authentication to this API works yet...
By the way, it also appears to be tied with this company: http://mobirocket.com/
This is a bit depressing.
This underlying problem needs to become a priority. Either pressuring #github to go free software or getting free software to go elsewhere.
Github becoming synonymous with open source just muddies free software waters more.
Free Software needs free tools.

Pleroma may be more efficient, but if I install it (and I might because I dislike ruby), I'd be doing so because I can keep using the Mastodon front-end and the Mastodon API.
If Pleroma is a better Mastodon back-end than Mastodon for some users ... odds are good a lot of them will still be using "Mastodon."
(To c&p something I said over on twitter because I think y'all will appreciate it more)
When Github goes down, FOSS effectively stops right now. It's tragic that we've allowed a single company to gain such control over the open commons.
I recognize that we are in this situation mostly because the 'distributed' side of git is only usable by experts. And I recognize the niche that GH fills (ticketing and PRs in lieu of emailed patches)
the end result here is that the technical deficiencies in git create a barrier to non-experts which has led us to grant an american corporation exclusive control of vast swathes of the FOSS commons. This will not end well.
