Would it help to have a board specifically for developers working on federated events?

If you search for “events” on this forum, you come across a number of discussion threads, spread across a bunch of the different boards:

Would it help to have a board specifically for this area of work? This might help devs working on free code projects that have events-related features, to break the problem of federated events into smaller, more manageable chunks.

I’m not sure what you mean by “board” in this context. Several discussions were started in various contexts (e.g., #software:mobilizon or #software), but the main discussion for developers of Federated Events happens in that topic of #activitypub. It really depends on the context: interop, a specific implementation, etc.

Do you think there should be a dedicated category instead of several topics?

Yes. What I’m seeing is that it’s too big a field of activity, with too many interested parties, to be sorted out in a single discussion thread. It seems like it needs a dedicated space in which to separate out the discussion into multiple threads. That’s what I mean by a “board” (from pre-web “bulletin board”), which I think is what you mean by “category”.

What do others think?

Might make it easier for people like me who try and follow discussions - and I do specifically want to follow and commit to event related federation. My focus on activitypub is very sporadic (based on available time/headspace in relation to paid work on other topics) so something to follow, collate, read, could help.

Perhaps the category could cover both events and groups, incorporating discussions like this?
