OH MY GOSH I DID IT

I successfully installed the latest version of on my server!

I'm now a stone's throw away from my dream of having a private social network for my friends and myself.

Big thanks to @darius for his "Run Your Own Social" guide, which kicked this off for me, to @hypolite for ongoing work on Friendica, and @tobias for help upgrading the YunoHost installer script.

I'm nearly jumping for joy. 🎉😁

@darius @EssDub @tobias Awesome, did you have to do anything specific to Gath.io or is it all through standard AP messages?
@EssDub @darius @tobias Awesome, hopefully it wasn't too much of a hassle? What is your domain?

@hypolite I'm @spencer right now. That's a test instance for the time being; I'm trying to get comfortable with it and configure it before launching for my friends.

@hypolite It appears that @spencer isn't fully federating yet? The profile info is out of date, and I'm not seeing its posts from Mastodon.

@EssDub @spencer New posts or existing posts? Not sure how Mastodon retrieves former public posts.

FWIW a few projects allow RSVP to Create/Event activities and Friendica is among these - an "implied invitation". Technically RSVP responses should instead be replies to explicit Invite/Event activities per specification. I recently changed Zap to only send Invite/Event but will also accept  RSVPs to Create/Event. Correcting the Hubzilla implementation is in progress (The Zot6 protocol driver has been converted but the ActivityPub driver still needs more attention). This change means that there will likely be some minor incompatibilities with event RSVPs between various platforms until everybody uses (should they choose to do so) the correct form.

@Darius Kazemi is aware of this work but RSVP compatibility between Friendica and gath.io as I recall is currently based on implied invitations. I don't know if the Invite/Event (explicit) form of activity is fully supported by either of these projects currently and is something you should also be aware of.

@mike @hypolite @EssDub Yes, right now Gathio sends Create/Event and accepts an Accept/Event as a valid response. What's interesting is that Gathio doesn't have a UX concept of explicit invitations, only implied ones, so it seemed like the natural thing to do. I could always send out an Invite/Event as well; as long as the server returns an Accept/Event in response it won't be an issue.

@sdub @Darius Kazemi @Hypolite Petovan

Yes, but ....

per the vocabulary doco the proper response should be Accept/Invite or more specifically Accept/{Invite/Event}. This is what I'm currently generating. We will honor Accept/Event but no longer generate it. I anticipate we're going to have compatibility issues as a result, but I'm just trying to do the right thing.
