@Luke because ActivityPub is an HTTP-based protocol so it uses webfinger instead of DNS?
@Luke that's exactly what webfinger also does, right? (I mean I'm not at all aware of the kind of webfinger support Mastodon or PixelFed have right now, but webfinger in general, like how caldav servers use it, f.e. is much as an HTTP-based alternative for SRV records.)
@Luke here is the message I got:
CommonsPub (by @mayel) or CPub (by @pukkamustard) might be something leaning towards what you describe: a generic #ActivityPub server.
@Luke also this:
@how @stevenroose @mayel
That is the idea of CPub and CommonsPub!
CPub is named in homage to CommonsPub. Both are written in Elixir. Difference is that CPub attempts to achieve generality by embracing Linked Data/Semantic Web ideas.
