I have just released Hometown v1.0.5+3.5.2!

No new features, just bringing things up to parity with the latest Mastodon v3.5.2. Lots of cool new features thanks to their team and contributors, though.

We will have some Hometown tweaks/fixes/features coming soon though!

@darius First Hometown migration went smoothly -- excited to try it out! I do think the "Initial migration" wiki still mentions 3.4.6 in a few spots though. I don't think GitHub lets me submit PRs on the wiki though :/

@darius are there any Mastodon features you don't merge, or is that too difficult?

@meena so far I have merged everything. I suspect it would be very difficult.

@darius garg likes to do refactoring during his controversial PRs, making it really difficult to cherry-pick

@meena is there a specific feature that has you thinking about this?

@darius the trending features, the renames are just a recent example

but more than the features themselves it was the way that Eugene was pushing them past any advice or resistance from Claire that made them unpalatable.

@meena Yeah, I hear you. Basically Hometown would need a ton more support (both monetary and in terms of number of contributors) in order to be anything other than a fork that very closely tracks upstream Mastodon. I am trying to keep the project as minimally-scoped as possible so I don't burn out myself.
