Hello, everyone! If you've been following @maloki for updates on the ongoing effort to #ForkTogether, then you may be happy to know that we had our first meeting on Saturday and are still planning out governance and infrastructure before the project "officially" starts.
If you're looking to follow the progress of the fork, or you're looking to get involved, follow here for updates!
thx. hope this also brings more of the discourse back into the fediverse, since it can be enriching for the culture here.
@maloki in Amaroq..
@donblanco possible that your server hasn't found it yet.
I dunno if Amaroq supports pasting links?
@donblanco I mean, searching links
@maloki yeah, got to it by searching. Thx!
@donblanco np. new accounts can take a while to show up tbh
@maloki Why fork it? Smth wrong? I'm new.
1) is this going to be a fork, or a patch-set to Gargon's work?
2) if it is a fork, is there a plan to merge changes from Gargon's work?
3) I assume if people switch right now it'll be an easy migration path, but what about admins that want to migrate in (for example) a year?
No decisions on these need to be made right now, of course.
fork musings, rather than actual info.
I do believe that we may be cherrypicking our favorite stuff from different already existing forks (like glitch and switter), and see what we can make from it, and then go from there.
As long as we keep developing on mastodon, it'll probably be merged upstream, if G doesn't refuse cooperation of that sort, which will be his own prerogative.
