The need for “governance” came out of a practical problem, the community is made up of “cats” you know the slogan “herding cats” we were doing seminars outreach to powerful EU Eurocrats on why they should be interested in and interesting they really are interested. We had no voice, only “cats” with everyone pushing their own tiny projects, it was a lot of work and stress, but we got the presentations done.

This is all based on permissionless grassroots democratic DIY process that have been tested and used for the last 30 years. The interesting part of this project is putting this “lived experience” into code and learning from the federation of the fediverse.

But think for a short presentation for this would be an uncomfortable and confusing storey for the audience. On balance lets keep it but also not completely “whitewash” this grassroots story out, leave some hints in.

The EU implementing AP could help to reset the resulting capture of the WWW (which made the internet human) good to remember was a European project The birth of the Web | CERN

My thoughts/feelings are pragmatic on a good outcome.

A wildly spread international crew have been putting a lot of work into making this a local codebase option version 1.2.0 release

@franklinlopez with peertube federation is content based rather than account based. in this it is diffrent to mastodon though they speak the same language you have to think about "federation diffrently to run a peertube instance.

This is a instance displaying a video from another peertube instance called kolektiva - they are talking the same feed language as mastodon so their posts can be shared and commented on from your mastodon account but you might have to work out how to do this as it's still a bit of a
