postblue favorited something by diogo: The ActivityPub plugin is able to interact properly with Mastodon (that was the only we tested it with so far so it might be working with others as well, we just haven't tested yet).
Despite that, it has some known key issues stopping it from being merged:
* It is unable to de-duplicate when OStatus and ActivityPub are both enabled - mostly noticed between GS instances with both enabled.
* Is unable to verify signatures which is an attack vector that makes the plugin unsafe for use right now.
* It also doesn't make use of queues nor collections caching nor has any kind of circuit breaker implemented. This makes its use risky for use in a highly active GS instance.
Right now I've been mostly fixing GS issues and resting a bit from the intense work on the plugin - and have been training for competitive programming :)
will test (or has tested, not sure) the plugin with Pixelfed and was going to fix those issues but Pixelfed has been consuming so much time from him that I will probably have to code the whole plugin by myself :(
is also looking forward to bring GS back to active development so I think the future is bright for !gnusocial
