Looking for some volunteers to test the diaspora-installer package in #debian.
All it takes is setting up a lxc container or vm locally, installing diaspora package and testing it in a browser on your host machine (create an account, post some status, share some photos etc).
Keep the package updated when new versions are released. Let me know if you are interested.
I was not very actively maintaining this package for some time, now planning to be more active.
Even though #diaspora development is very slow, it looks like next release 0.8 will have some much sought after features of pod migration and API support.
Once API support is releases, hopefully we will see better mobile applications and possibly that was one of reasons why it did not become popular.
Also after #mastodon, probably people are more open to trying alternatives, at least some folks in my contact list here started using diaspora recently.
