The entry for Streams mentions a roadmap with a pointer to a fediverse profile that is long gone. Since there are only about 11 weeks remaining in 2022, perhaps the best solution is to drop the entries for Zap, Mistpark2020, Redmatrix, Osada, and Roadhouse; which are rapidly approaching end-of-support -- and remove the dead pointer. The information website these other projects point to was decommissioned in July.
These were earlier efforts to try and break the stranglehold of brand worship on the fediverse by making branding a commodity.
The repository which is named 'streams' does this much more elegantly and represents the true nature of the fediverse; which is "a million points of light" based on open protocols. There is no fediverse project with that name or brand. It is merely the name of a git repository which contains a fully functional public domain fediverse server with a useful feature set and a very long history.
I think we might need to add a small extra paragraph explaining the ghost emoji, as it does not indicate 'dead'.
The projects having this were inactive for over a year, and may be officially unmaintained. But the code is out there, sits waiting. And people might still use the apps out there on the fediverse. We keep these projects on the list because it was delightful they were created in the first place. And the code might inspire others to study it and build their own federated app, or fork it or even become new maintainer for the project.
This is different than we do on other delightful lists. We want to stimulate the fedi to evolve, have more apps interoperating, and so much knowledge for that sits in the various codebases.
Updated streams entry.
Going through the entire list and update ghost emoji's is a thing on my backlog that I don't have time for now. But when picking that up will give this some more though how to do it best. Thanks for the background info, and all feedback welcome.
Just an update. It's now 2023 and as mentioned in earlier communications, the zot application repository has been decommissioned.
Though somebody stepped up and provided an archival link to those historical software repositories:
This is where you'll find archives of Zap, Mistpartk-2020, Osada, Roadhouse, and Redmatrix-2020.
Streams is still at https://codeberg.org/streams/streams and is the reference implementation for the Nomad protocol as well as a fully integrated ActivityPub implementation with blogging, events, groups, circles, integrated cloud storage, nomadic identity, single sign-on, yadda, yadda.
No due date set.

Deleting a branch is permanent. Although the deleted branch may exist for a short time before cleaning up, in most cases it CANNOT be undone. Continue?
