Thanks to the good folks at StatusNet, we now have the identi.ca
@fedora account. Salient points:
* The account is connected to the Twitter @fedora acount. Posts to
Identi.ca will be echoed to Twitter, which is how we wanted to roll.
* I think most security-minded people, including me, reject the idea
of sharing passwords. However, there is an obfuscated email address
through which people can post to the identi.ca account. I'll send
that to the socialmedia group members.
* We are still open to using a different management console that
supports Twitter and Identi.ca. HootSuite is supposedly working on
StatusNet/identi.ca support. We're not going to block on this, but
if someone finds a 100% FOSS solution we can take advantage of,
we're not married to HS. HS is only for responding to people, not
for originating posts -- since if you posted with it, you'd be
leaving out identi.ca which is a no-no.
Does this make sense? Did I forget anything?
