I am very tired. Spent the whole day cleaning up the Keybase proofs integration PR

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

After asking around for feedback and returning sponsor money, I decided that it wouldn't really hurt and the publicity would be good

@DashEquals So nobody could said that I sold out for this feature

@Gargron forwarded this to GW2Efficiency because it's in a much better position to provide this than I would ever be. github.com/gw2efficiency/issue

@Gargron as always, I'm very grateful for your hard work, esp. given you must do it while being shouted at by loud haters. vielen Dank, Eugen!

@datn

@Gargron 's haters have generally proven to be a negative influence for this community anyway. I am and always will be grateful for the efforts of this man and everyone that helps him.

@gargron was hoping for this feature relatively soon! Woo! 🤘

@Gargron nice feature \o/. As soon as Keybase implements IPv6, I might reconsider using it.

@motp @Gargron

Can You share what this feature is for? 🤔 i am confused a litlle

@inditoot Well, keybase ist just a nice idea to link a PGP identity to something else. E.g. if I you certify on keybase, that your mastodon account is actually yours, I can be sure that this mastodon identity is currently controlled by the same entity as the PGP key.

@Gargron
literally no one needs this. connections with non-foss software is bad; the people that need it can just put their PGP fingerprint on their bio.

@void @Gargron

People dont like to write instance url in apps and here you are 🤔 think about non technical people

@inditoot @void @Gargron I get your argument but either way: Keybase is a centralized service

@void
That's not the point. Anyone can put anyone else's fingerprint in the bio and claim "that's me". With a cryptographic verification it can be proved that the account belongs to the same person who holds the key.
Something similar can be achieved when simply posting a cryptographically signed message, but then the connected Keybase graph is missing.
