The lack of public post federation in Diaspora is IMHO a make or break feature. The whole network is a little broken as small pods are cut of most of the posts on the network due to the way current federation works.
Here is my proposal for solving this issue, please see wiki post here.
It is not a comprehensive solution that can just be implemented now. It is a high level suggestion for going forward with talking about such a feature.
