I'm currently working on setting up my own Masto instance. Just to get the experience, really. We could also experiment with a simple federation.
@ggow will do. Unfortunately, after a few hours of banging my head against it, I've stopped with the install guide. Either their guide is out of date, or some scripts are -- so many missing dependencies!
I will try again later with a simpler "1-click" install. It will be an older version of Masto, but may still federate.
This is an instance of Mastodon at the University of Alberta. We are using this instance mainly for testing, but we welcome those who want to learn more about open source social media.
@robertwgehl Yes, let's plan to try to federate our instances. I can't see an obvious way to do it, so this will be a good chance to figure it out.
