I wrote the majority of pixelfed federation code in April and May. The reason it's not enabled is because you only get one chance to launch federation support and you have to think about use cases outside of your own usage bubble. It has to be right the first time.

It's getting close folks! 😉

In May I wrote the logic to import posts of a remote user after you follow (if they don't already exist) so they don't have an empty profile.

The smallest details are just as important as the big ones.

@dansup Take your time. If a little bit of delay can save everyone from lots of headache later one, then why mess it up by being hasty? :)

@dansup I'm curious as to why it has to be right the first time. Any sources on that?
