This library is responsible for federation in Lemmy, and can also be used by other Rust projects.

      The library is actually fully compatible with Mastodon. All the compatibilities are in Lemmy and in Mastodon. The problem is that Mastodon doesnt have any real documentation for the federation messages they send. So its necessary to test things manually and reverse engineer it which I dont have time for. Plus there are some compatibility issues which could easily be fixed on the Mastodon side, but they seem to have zero interest to do that.

            Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s because he’s overloaded with messages, but if the lemmy community becomes large or loud enough not to ignore, then something might change.

              I can only hope. They have already a PR done but not merged that would solve this issue since 2021 IIRC

        So I am interested in starting a last.FM fediverse thing. Could I use this lib.?
