Hey developers & ActivityPub enthusiasts!

@GetTogetherComm is a free open alternative to

The lead developer needs help with implementing federation, either coding or better documentation about ActivityPub.

There's an open issue for it here:

There's been discussion but no code contributions yet.

Can you help?

(It would be *so* cool to get this kind of service federated, imagine every town having its own instance :blobaww: )

To people making Tshirts FOSS themed, could you think about women?
Men tshirt doesn't fit well for some reasons. :flan_strong:

@dansup Fair enough. I don’t understand what you mean by “support,” though. If something runs on PHP 7.1, it should run just fine on 7.2 and 7.3. According to its composer.json file, the minimum version is 7.1.3, and 7.2/7.3 don’t introduce BC breaks.

That said, mcrypt was deprecated in 7.2 and removed in 7.3, so that could be an issue, but a quick fix is to `pecl install mcrypt`.

@dansup Why wouldn’t it be able to support PHP 7.3?

@chucker @aldonogueira @renatolond That doesn’t help instance maintainers who want to mute just those toots and not others from these users.

@azjezz I am not a designer, but I’m happy to offer opinions and help implement things from the technical side.

@azjezz And, reading your latest post, I’ve looked at Flarum and have decided to set it up for the foundation’s use (and the general community). I’ve also got a Rocket.Chat instance running, but I’m still working out some kinks in it before I open it to the general public. :-)

@azjezz I thought your avatar looked familar! I just realized you’re the one who posted to the internals mailing list to propose a new website for the PHP project. Cool!

I’m interested in helping. I’ve worked on and in the past, with a few commits to

I’m also currently working on launching PHP Community Foundation as a non-profit organization to support PHP and its community:

@azjezz Let's not be hasty here. 😀The best forum software provides both options for users.

I live in email. It's how I keep track of everything. If it doesn't come into my inbox, it doesn't happen.

@mdm I know that I can mute or block the accounts. I don’t really want to do that, in case these people begin actually engaging on Mastodon.

@mdm The posts’ contents aren’t bothering me, but many of these folks don’t respond here, so they’re not engaging. They’ve just forgotten that Mastodon is even here and that their posts are showing up here.

@gingerrroot Most of these don't have the word "Twitter" in the posts. I thought it might be interesting to try muting the phrase "Mastodon Twitter Crossposter," but it looks like the muting functionality doesn't consider the client name.

Is there a way to mute just a particular posting client on Mastodon? I want to mute everything from Mastodon Twitter Crossposter.
