Federation relay is working and seems to be useful to the servers that volunteered to test it.

I need to finalize the admin interface for the relay settings.

@Gargron what's Federation relay? How many laps do each of us have to run‽ 🏃‍♀️

@Gargron Is it only for Mastodon or for all and any ActivityPub traffic?
Can it potentially marry distinct networks (like onion, I2P and regular Internet?)

@drequivalent Any AP server can use it. And maybe it can, I don't know!

@Gargron Brilliant!!! This really solves the No1 challenge of self hosting my mastodon server. Thank you so much! 👍

@Gargron This looks really useful. Could it be used on the Docker servers? Not sure how to get to the rails console. Will have to do some digging but this seems like it will be really useful for servers like mine.
