Dear ActivityPub + Github + Matrix users : do you have any ideas on how we could bridge these three tools ? Bouncing the following tools in the context of FedeProxy (forge activitypub interoperability)

github + matrix bridge + kazarma + activitypub client (mastodon for example) = what usage ? following issues ?

Boosts appreciated.

@arthurlutz Microsoft will never accept so, for Github, it's over. Why not working with Gitlab and Gitea to add federation, instead?

@bortzmeyer Why?
I did not expect linux to be on Microsoft's radar, back in the days.


@bortzmeyer Some time ago, a Microsoft executive said that Linux was not on the radar.
And all of a sudden, Microsoft makes money with linux on azure.

I mean: somehow they changed their mind.

Perhaps they can change their mind about being evil, being a bad citizen/netizen, and federate?


@bortzmeyer I'm asking with github as an example, but obviously gitlab & gitea are in the target forges for fedeproxy & forgefed. The two approaches (core implementation & implementing a bridge) are being explored I believe. The bridge approach is more pragmatic for proprietary solutions such as github. See the forum for more info about all this.

@arthurlutz At least Github integrates already well with Matrix with the existing integration bot. I heard it's getting support for GitLab also. Maybe (with Kazarma?) we could use Matrix client as a Mastodon client. Interesting topic. #activitypub #matrix

@humanetech @cos when you say "joined" does that mean they openned a section in the forum or is there some other sort of commitment ?

@arthurlutz @cos

The joining itself is nothing more than the creation of the section + a related group that allow the project team to moderate it themselves.

But implicitly there's the commitment to be intricate part of the community that collectively drives the technology foundation of the Fediverse towards the future. I.e. dedicated to evolving open standards and tighter interoperability.

(In other words: Just having it there as an advertisement, while never engaging, would be dishonest)

@dragnucs I used github as a example since it's a proprietary solution with quite a lot of projects there. For gitlab you can checkout the issues collected about what is being done and discussed on the forum Feel free to express your use cases there or upstream !
