Mastodon -> Pleroma 

I know I already bring this up before, but here I ask again: would be an issue for you guys to migrate from Mastodon to Pleroma?

Mastodon is really heavy, has a complex structure (3 different mastodon services, 1 postgresql, 1 redis) and somehow "castrated" by default, forcing to switch to a fork of it (glitch-soc, which works but of course have a "use at your own risk" disclaim) and sometimes it's a real PITA to update.

Actually, has 463 users registered, but only about 15-20% of them are active.

Now, an eventual migration to Pleroma will take some times, probably a day but you will keep your toots and your followers.
(see gitlab.com/soapbox-pub/migrato).

I'm going to make another poll on another toot for this decision, but I really hope to make the switch. It will means less maintenance, less downtime, less issues thanks to a minor complexity...

Let me know your thoughts.

re: Mastodon -> Pleroma 

@mdallastella I set up a Pleroma instance when I broke my Mastodon instance while trying to update it (I was on a fork that became somewhat unmaintained, and I couldn't easily switch back, nor run it because of system updates).
Easier to update, and to theme (no need to fork to change things like icons, background, or colors). So I wouldn't mind if functional.cafe migrate to Pleroma.
