Mastodon v3.0.0 brought us an admin UI option to disable search engine indexing for all accounts that haven't set it manually before. We have enabled this setting on chaos.social.
We think opt-in is better than opt-out so if you want your toots to be indexed by search engine providers in the future please review your settings. #mastoadmin

It's still a work in progress we plan to integrate #activityPub federation by the end of the year, and a full v1 release during 1st semester 2020.

Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:
We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.
Shame on you.
PS: If you want to get an idea what Repomaker is, be welcome to read the article I wrote on it half a year ago: https://android.izzysoft.de/articles/named/fdroid-intro-3
Calling out to the Mastodon community again: famous @fdroidorg Repomaker is looking for a new maintainer (and contributors). Should be familiar with F-Droid, Python, Django.
Please help keeping it alive!
Volunteers go to https://gitlab.com/fdroid/repomaker/issues/234 – others please boost, as usual 😉 Thanks!

Google is currently on witchhunt for alternative #YouTube frontends: They target the services as well as their users.
In the last week, #Invidious instances first got IP banned, and once that was circumvented stopped via heavy rate limits.
Now they manage to associate #NewPipe users with google accounts somehow, and suspend these accounts:
Now that these frontends got #Google's attention, I don't think we can sustain this cat & mouse game for long. 😔
