If anyone is interesting in discussing how a feature for federating reports could work, I would recommend you checking out this thread:
If you are a keen programmer who knows or is willing to learn ruby, ruby on rails and/or nodeJS, join an instance other than mastodon.social and and start learning and get involved! I've joined glitch.social, cybre.space is another running their own fork, ask around, get involved!
as you saw in the article it was "in the future", however, if you're interested in this right now, I'd highly recommend posting something about it on the Discourse, and if it becomes a regular thing, we may just make a "bounty" board, so to speak.
some notes on masto dev (some may have changed a little in my PR but this is still relevant)
#mastodon #development #mastodev
masto beta? Show more
is there a beta instance where people can sign up and help debug future versions of mastodon? i'm no dev, but i feel like fresh non-coder eyes would be really helpful for some of the hiccups that keep happening where a new release breaks something that was working before. #mastodev
In the 1.4 Roadmap we had the feature "patch-notes modal", but it did not come to fruition. One of the problems: we had not figured out how to do it in a simple way.
So we are now opening up the discussion for two ways of doing it, 1. as simple as possible. 2. bit more fancy with translations etc.
Wanna help with fleshing this feature out? Head over to the discourse:
There is currently a discussion on Discourse about how to make Customization easier for instance owners.
If this is a topic of interest for you, I think you should join the discussion today!
