@schmittlauch does that mean we're going to have lots of instances running "stable" five year old software versions?
@schmittlauch do we really need more places outside of mailing lists for debian maintainers' hot takes ;)
@schmittlauch this is tremendously amazing news! Thanks for sharing. However, I looked there the PeerTube instance does not open registration.
@schmittlauch Do they have an official Debian account yet?
@alex not yet
But using these new amazing services is still not possible. This would have been a nieche where nixos could shine: Easily deployable fediverse services that even could depend on another, managed via #nixops or #krops ... *dreams*
But no, it is not even possible to deploy sourcehut yet. 😭
Personally I think these modules don't belong into main Nixpkgs tree, but into separate repositories. Currently it's hard to integrate these repos, but eventually the #flake standard will make that much easier.
@erictapen yes, I agree. Would be nice to have something like the nixos-mailserver project, where one could just pull in a nixos-fediverse and then enable every service they want.
@schmittlauch does it mean debian has packages for pixelfed?
@schmittlauch just saw it while clicking on the links. Might be interesting, running a debian container on my fedora cluster is easy, and having proper dependencies and package is good 😎.
Have to recheck s3 integration in pixelfed though, apparently there are still issues at some point... This prevents clustering, meaning no HA... meaning sadness.
@schmittlauch Interesting choice, going for Pleroma instead of Mastodon as their go-to microblog
