@kev I can see where bundling them together instead of making people go out and find all of these by themselves has value. Otherwise, sure, you can get all this stuff somewhere else.
@kelbot @mike I completely agree. I don’t have a problem with it at all, I just don’t see where all the hype for this fantastic new service is coming from, as it’s just a collection of forked apps. The lack of attribution on their website isn’t very good either. :(
Note: attribution might be there, but I couldn’t find it. With purism being such good open source citizens, I would have expected that to be front and centre.
@greg @brandon They're obviously federating to at least some extent because we can all see and follow and comment on accounts on their instance, and vice versa. Even if they've disabled the Federated timeline (a move I'm not entirely against having looked into the Fed on occasion), that doesn't mean they're not federating.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
