Are there any or people around here who can explain/point to a source in something approximating plain language how the Mastodon remote follow functionality works? The Ruby code is a like trying to read hieroglyphs for me.

Context: I'm interested in whether something similar can be implemented for @bookwyrm, preferably in a software-neutral way (i.e. remote follow from Misskey or Pleroma or Mastodon etc)

Boosts welcome.

@scanlime If Octodon is being a bad instance, there are some people who should be informed about that...

@eff How do I report an inaccurate listing? This is listed as Durham NC, but should be Durham NH (clearly a slip of the finger during data-entry): atlasofsurveillance.org/es/a/a

@JennyFluff This is clearly the original piece that Jupiter is based on. [nods authoritatively]

@FiXato That might take the Lhotse face off the learning-curve.

Now, if I can just find a place to stash that link where I'll remember to look when I'm ready to use it...

@dredmorbius ...or maybe a better way to put it would be "the amount of time likely to be involved puts this task below other projects I'm currently trying to get onto a usable plateau-space, though it will eventually emerge into the light of day".

@dredmorbius Agreed. Unfortunately I don't have the resources necessary right now to figure out how to go about doing this.

@dredmorbius @galaxis We've done it before, but I don't know if this was a problem.

It's plausibly a design issue with ActivityPub or Mastodon, and that kind of sucks :-/

(The right way to do it would be for all image URLs to go to an instance-controlled server which could then do a temporary HTTP-redirect to wherever their images actually are hosted, or else fetch images in the background and serve them directly.)

definitions: yakshaving & bikeshedding

@LottieVixen You're not the only one. I've looked them both up repeatedly, and all I can remember is that bikeshedding is something like getting distracted from the main problem by the details of a small part of it.

...and I might have that wrong (though Wiktionary seems to agree).

I did a quick search on yak-shaving, and the first result claims it's kind of equivalent to going down a task rabbit-hole, though I don't remember what the connection is.

Wiktionary, however, says it's more like where you have to do something apparently irrelevant in order to actually accomplish your goal. The name apparently derives from a Ren and Stimpy episode, so I wouldn't expect it to make sense outside of that context.
