Ok now I'm tagging you Humane Tech and Dachary but I'm also tagging you Autistic Anthropologist because I thought maybe you would find what Humane Tech tried to convey to me, maybe you'll find this interesting too as I'm assuming you're into #Neurodiversity.

@autistic_anthropologist

This is a topic about #Accessibility that "Humane Tech Now" brought up in regards to a SoftwareProject called #FedeProxy(it's like a "federated github" project)

@humanetech @PaulaToThePeople @fedeproxy

@humanetech very well put 👍

@PaulaToThePeople you have a point: there is no denying that is about creating software that is useful to developers. Unless one has an understanding and interest about the software development cycle, they are unlikely to be interested in the project 😅

@PaulaToThePeople

I understand. I wonder if anyone is really an expert in diversity. We are all trying to figure out what that means in practice :)

I don't know what @dachary is looking for in terms of software, but for #fedeproxy diversity initiative I had the impression it mostly revolves around the community that surrounds the project, consisting of all technical and non-technical stakeholders. So a community-building thing with diversity as an important objective.

@humanetech @dachary @fedeproxy Hm, I'm not really an expert in diversity and I'm especially not an expert in software.
Tbh I wouldn't have the first idea on how to improve diversity in a software project.
But thanks for thinking of me. :)

Hi @PaulaToThePeople I saw your toot about diversity interview and maybe this is interesting to you? And you also have lotsa community management experience.

Do you know anyone interested in getting paid to improve in a Free Software project? Boost appreciated!

@fedeproxy, a new Free Software project for published a request for proposal today. If you have some expertise on fostering diversity in Free Software communities, this is your chance to make a difference, at a very early stage. And maybe set a good example for the thousands of other Free Software projects in the same situation.

Yes, @sakkara, and it’s called git-send-email. Linux, PostgreSQL are some popular projects that follow this federation model. More recently there’s also sourcehut.org which integrates CI/CD with mailing lists and enables normal developers to enjoy modern workflows while does not try to lock in contributors.

GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, Gitea, etc. however invent their own mechanisms where Git’s role is barely a Merkle DAG storage. @dachary is working on @fedeproxy to work around this by applying ActivityPub (among other things) on top of those services though.

@aw @resist1984 I hope @fedeproxy will be ready when you close your GitHub account. I closed mine years ago and participating in Free Software projects trapped in GitHub became difficult and tedious. The curse of 0% interoperability 😭

If you want a taste of what it is like, feel free to read the three part story I wrote about a contribution I made a few months ago.

An opportunity for Golang devs to work on a great FOSS project with funding: Bringing Gitea to the Fediverse with ActivityPub support and the ForgeFed protocol

@eragon @emersion

It boils down that if #activitypub is a hammer, then not everything becomes a nail, i.e. use it where it shines.

(though most people mistakenly think AP is mostly for microblogging, because that's the dominant application domain it is used in now)

@dachary and others in the #FedeProxy community have some very nice ideas on where to use which technology.

Discussions are on forum.fedeproxy.eu/

fedeproxy boosted

@emersion nice.

FYI you might be interested in the #activitypub #fedeproxy project by @dachary that wants to facilitate much more of these capabilities..

fedeproxy.eu

It will probably use #forgefed + AP extensions under the hood (here #gofed offers a Golang impl that #gitea may use in an integration or plugin)

go-fed.org

@emersion @humanetech

I agree 👍 is no good as a transport to synchronize data repositories (which forges are).

And...

I disagree 👎 ActivityPub is perfect to be notified when there is activity on a forge and is way to express what happened.

When thinking about both are needed.

This is explained in more details in a 6 minutes video published last month in the context of @fedeproxy.

@strypey
@selea @yarmo

There hasn't been a lot of work on #ForgeFed for a while, but there are some great developments nonetheless: #FedeProxy at fedeproxy.eu initiated by @dachary is looking to adopt it, and there's a detailed #Gitea open issue by @cj who has added support for ForgeFed vocab in the #GoFed #ActivityPub libs.

The short story of in @fedeproxy was published. There is virtually no HOWTO for diversity in small Free Software projects that are in their bootstrap stage. But the good news is that if one actually put the hours to improve diversity (instead of just thinking it should magically happen), it changes the status quo.

@stuebinm thanks for volunteering, this will be very helpful to @fedeproxy 👍 And of course there is no obligation of any kind... that's the essence of being a volunteer.

@cj @schmittlauch @stuebinm @psy User Reserach conducted for @fedeproxy contains evidence that developers are discouraged from reporting bugs when it means creating new accounts on yet another forge.

Federating forges would solve that problem but it's not here yet.
