Sure no question, I’ll link some related discussion.

This highly depends on
Also this discussion should be in the federation subgroup IMO. Gonna request a “move discussion” feature I guess…

Old attempt:

Sure, federation done properly would be awesome for the network

OStatus in general, of course.

I think this is less about federating with StatusNet instances, and more about setting up a way to post to one’s own StatusNet account via the Publisher. In theory, all you really have to do is create an omniauth gem for StatusNet. Last I checked, SN offers a Twitter-like API.

I have a really rough WIP one for identica that I was working on, so it might provide some kind of starting point to support general StatusNet installations. You can check it out here:

Also, take a look here for a general guide:

Of course, if we want to actually federate with StatusNet, Evan from the project has expressed willingness to sit down and work side-by-side with someone to get OStatus compliance working in our app. See the conversation here:

Sounds like the key people are all willing to help, contribute and provide. All that’s missing is a key dev from what I read. Someone capable with time on their hands willing to do the job?
