The stance by some of the #Diaspora
core devs over #ActivityPub
is quite honestly disappointing, and kind of perpetuates everything that depresses me over that project.https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora/issues/7422
There are many valid criticisms to be had, but Diaspora in general has done fuck-all to support federation with other platforms, forcing those systems to conform to its own protocol instead.
The do-nothing attitude of their devs is particularly infuriating because their pushback arguments fall flat when compared against other projects. Friendica put the effort in, as did Hubzilla and Osada. None of them have "perfect" implementations by any means, but people within those projects have nevertheless made some kind of effort.
