Here is a copy of what was in the Etherpad (updated 2022-11-05):

Easy, anyone can do it:

Somewhat advanced - Provide suggestions and help improve relevant software:

figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them

there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most

Interface for finding server should let user mark various interests and return sorted list of most fitting servers

process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier

Cross-post your Mastodon posts to Twitter:

find ways to Twitter replies to appear in Mastodon, resulting in a fully bridged thread

find ways to import some or all existing data from existing Twitter profile

figure out how to efficiently encourage people to choose or move to the instance that is most fitting for them

  • there should be more / better tools to help people easily find the instance that fits their interests the most

  • process of migrating to a different instance should be made easier

More technical stuff:

  • Look through open issues, see if there is anything you can help with. Also help clean up by going through old issues and suggesting outdated or resolved ones for closure. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon

  • Help write documentation
    https://github.com/mastodon/documentation

  • host your own instance
    getting people to use it will help distribute the burden that is currently on mastodon.social

  • https://the-federation.info/mastodon takes long time to load. Probably transfers whole list before parsing it or something. Find ways to split the process and make information display faster

Ethical and open replacement to Twitter
