I wrote another blog post about #Gitea #federation and the recent Gitea <-> Mastodon federation milestone.

It's nontechnical so you don't have to know anything about ActivityPub to read it!

So @bonfire I am wondering if we want the same, after all. could integrate all these in a flexible and open ecosystem, empowering people to post without worrying where to put what or what might be lost.

Which brings me to a quite concrete question:
Given plenty of financial resources, how soon could there be a working version of Bonfire Kanban?

All current approaches of integrating team chat, task/project management and social interaction are clunky.
I am currently trying to set something up in our growing startup, exploring , , (integrated with, a great WIP initiative of fantastic people), various options and via, but each have their deficiencies - I can clearly envision what it would look like, but I don't have enough development power myself.

@publicvoit in your article about Orgdown:

You don't need to use your real name on the Fediverse. Call yourself whatever you want, and the rest of us will be happy with that.

Then, strangely, the warning disappeared after Google purchased YouTube... 🤔
