@bryan it seems that by next year is gonna have some serious traction. This space is moving so fast.

@wakest good, keeping a nice standard active like ActivityPub that uses JSON is a good thing.

Keeping active support for a terrible decade-old sloppily-put-together "protocol" mishmosh of other protocols, calling it OStatus, using XML decades after better, lighter alternatives came into play, and discontinuing work on the spec itself is a really bad idea.

It was only a matter of time before GNU social either died or got with the times.
