I'm building it in my free time so the end of the year is not a likely launch window... but it will definitely be announced when it is!
It will definitely be for some people to host and others to use, and the goal is to make it federate like Mastodon, though! And even if you don't know GitLab, you can still contribute ideas and follow along with things! I try to link things intuitively. 😊
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
