We are federating to diaspora for over 8hours now \o/ I wonder if things will collapse as usual at 18:30.
meaz a partagé

For the past year our interest in Diaspora as a social network solution has been declining. We knew that at one point there will come the time to make the decision about the future of our pod on the federation map. The moment has come to face the inevitable and to announce that we will be phasing out Diaspora in favor of something we feel has bigger potential and suits our platform better and something we've been invested in the past year.

The performance of our Diaspora pod for the last months has been terrible. People constantly complain about the slow stream load times, and we personally were not satisfied with its performance even though we did what we could to improve it. We have also been attacked by the spam account creation which lead us to decide to temporary close registrations while fighting it off. However, we have never re-opened the registrations which sadly reflects our lack of motivation to keep the pod running.

Do we have anything against Diaspora? Not at all.

Of course the performance could be improved. Diaspora has been with us from the very beginning. It was Diaspora where we first posted a hello world as Disroot project, and in fact was the one and only advertisement of Disroot done by us. It was a great experience and great community. However, nothing stays in one place. The times are changing ("ecosystem is moving":wink: :wink: )and we feel like we need to move on. We do not want to get to the situation where provide multiple social networks and thus we need to choose for a single solution we can stand behind, focus on and support as much as we can. For past four years it was Diaspora but looking around, there are amazing projects that stroke our interest and we've become more involved with. The overwhelming feature set of Hubzilla in terms of not only interoperability with other protocols, but also features such as groups, profiles, chats, forums, articles and of course, the nomadic identity and the Zot protocol in general, made us look at its direction more and more. On the other hand the ActivityPub powered networks show the potential of new, fresh and massively occupied federated networks. We feel a need for change and we are want to put our efforts at something we can identify with. Obviously we are currently invested into Hubzilla as we believe it is a brilliant social network ahead of its time, providing set of features unseen anywhere else, and yet very underestimated. That said we do not want to make "impulsive" decision. This is why we cannot tell at this stage which exactly social network we will eventually choose. It's most likely going to be Hubzilla but it could as well be Friendica, Pleroma, Pixelfed or even mastodon. At this stage it is too early to tell. We know Hubzilla has it's shortcomings and so before we manage to address those, it stays unanswered.

What we can say is that officially we will be phasing out our current Diaspora pod. So what does it mean for current users? Not much actually. Diaspora will be operational until the last active user shuts the lights off. We are not Google to kick people out like with G+. We are however going to:

Remove the Diaspora page from our website,
Close registration
Start with purging inactive accounts without possibility to reactivate. We will automatically purge users inactive for longer than 4 months without any prior warning.
In the meantime we will be working on Diaspora's replacement.

We would like to say thank you to Diaspora devs for providing us with first ever federated social network, for all the years you've been with us during and prior the birth of Disroot. We are tremendously grateful for your efforts and your work. We will do our best to not leave "The Federation" protocol and still stay in touch with the Disapora network. For now though, Thanks for all the fish, and see you on the flip side.

Hey all Disrooters! Are you all well, rested and prepared for the new year? We sure are, and can't wait for what is coming our way. We want to start the year by planning and deciding what we want to be busy with in the months to come.

The 2020 plan

As always, this time we are also having some ambitious plans for this year. We have identified few themes we wanted to focus on.

Email improvements

We want to focus on a number of improvements of our email service. Starting from new and better webmail solution, bigger promotion of native email clients (apps) and focus on full support of Autocrypt in webmail as a promotional campaign of Autocrypt (easy user/app side independent end-to-end email encryption) not only for users but most importantly mail client developers, to stive for vider addoption of the solution. As we are getting more 'popular' we are more often attacked by spam, phishing and other nasty things ruining email experience. We want to focus on better anti-spam/virus solutions too.
Mailbox encryption

One of the things we have not managed to achieve last year is the mailbox encryption. This year we hope we will finally nail it. Initially we thought of server side encryption (where your private keys are stored on the server), however recently we started talking more and more about possibility to utilize GnuPG (gpg/pgp) as a way to end-to-end encrypt emails at rest (mailbox encryption). We hope we will be able to come up with solution that not only will serve Disrooters, but since it would be fully open sourced would allow any email server provider to utilize. No more closed silos. If we manage time will tell. As a fallback solution we will be working on server side mailbox encryption.
Better administration

One of the themes of last roadmap for 4th quarter of 2019 we started looking into ways to improve administration and way we handle support tickets, custom requests and all sort of routine tasks that consume more and more of our time. We also do realize that some of the tasks facing all of you (additional storage, custom domains etc) do not feel professional and take definitely too much time to be processed. We want to address all those things and improve as much as we can, so that your requests will be processed quick and professional and for us, all the routine daily tasks will not feel like a chore and we will have more time to focus on fun stuff like improving services we run.
Onboard more admins

For the last years Disroot was run by muppeth and antilopa who were responsible for everything Disroot (from website, daily tasks, administration, support, system administration, maintenance and all). Since last few months the Disroot team grew with additional force (fede and meaz in the core team and massimiliano and maryjane as volunteer close help). Already last roadmap we have started on defining and redistributing some of the tasks such as support tickets, translation project and howtos management, website building and so on. We want to continue this year by training and onboarding new core team members to allow them access to more production servers, to help with troubleshooting, maintenance and other tasks and requests that require production access to the servers.
Launch Hubzilla

Some of you know we have fallen in love in Hubzilla two years ago. We think it is a brilliant piece of software ahead of its time with great potential, offering features no other network provides. The moment we discovered the genius of Hubzilla, we wanted it to become our number one go to social network. Hubzilla needs a lot of love, and a lot of work to become service we can provide as go to social network for Disroot. After last two years we have not managed to get our test instance to the point where we would be satisfied with it. Getting hubzilla to desired state as a goal and priority will help get to the point where we can provide hubzilla to all disrooters.

Saying Disroot has not become our dayjob would be a lie. We spend on Disroot more time then we do on our actual day jobs. And since we need to maintain both, not to mention our families, other projects, hobbies and maybe some social life (which at this moment is not existing), we need to change this situation. Getting to the place where Disroot becomes our main occupation seems to be still far ahead, but we need to seriously start working towards it. Last year has exceeded our most enthusiastic expectations and showed us that the dream of financial independence is realistic. That is why we want to dedicate some time to explore ways how to make this dream come true.

What's next ?

We have divided our plans into three month long roadmaps. Right now, we are busy working on laying the ground work for all the themes and we continue to work on tasks we have not managed to accomplish during the last months. Furthermore, we are refining all the plans in more detail to improve our working experience.

💣 Lufi - Armagedon 💥

Due to many issues with lufi ( and its corrupt database which was causing issues uploading files, we have decided to nuke it. Since the service provides temporary space to upload the files, it was much easier to make this decision. This means we are starting from scratch and all the files uploaded have been wiped. Sorry to all those that have recently uploaded files since they will have to do it again.
