Implementing new ActivityPub object types unused by other projects is fun!

I don't have to worry about compatibility, and I get to define my own object schema 👍

Not particular to your efforts, but in general:

There is however the person that comes after you to consider. Should they contact you? Dive into the codebase to figure out what you did?

A big challenge for fedi is how to get alignment and consensus on the interoperability constructs to use. Right now its an 'everybody for themselves' kinda thing.

@humanetech I agree. I plan on adding federation documentation.

My long term goal is to adopt a machine readable ActivityPub implementation schema for FediDB with crowdsourced data for each project so one can build and test against real world objects.

@dansup I would love if the machine readable Schema were compatible with go-fed's ASTool so that:
1) it could be natively shared itself via ActivityPub, and
2) our projects could read / write the same input files

On the whole I feel there is a great Process + Automation mechanism to be elaborated that will greatly ease arbitrary extensions to be supported across the fedi.

I hope we can steer a good discussion towards that on SocialHub.

@cj That sounds interesting! Not familiar with ASTool, will check it out.
