We are currently having a discussion on the F-Droid forum about letting apps toot to the Fediverse. This would be used to share app changelogs, and eventually display comments from the Fediverse inside the F-Droid app. Unfortunately, none of us has experience with Mastodon/Pleroma development, so it would be very helpful if a developer could give some input.

The thread is rather long, so feel free to make a comment here or on the forum and we will give you specific questions we have.


@nutomic I'd just host a pleroma (lightweight) docker instance and post to it with mastodon.py, a very useful python library. Maybe it's only worth to host this for the 1-2 big repos, but you could build it in a way that smaller repos can use a custom pleroma/masto instance.

@b3yond Yeah that was the general idea. We need some specific features though, so I think we are going tok make an issue on the Pleroma Gitlab to figure out how to implement them.
