This is pretty freaking cool for people who want an encrypted file without a password:
Funkwhale, dev, podcasts, moderation
Pfiou, another important step completed today. I've been mostly focused on user-level features, but since channels / podcasts potentially introduce new ways for abuse, it's important to take this into account before the actual release.
In particular, it's important that:
- users can report channels (and that these reports federate, when applicable)
- admins/mods can browse channels, delete them or specific bits of content
- admins/mods can act upon reported channels
All of this is implemented at https://dev.funkwhale.audio/funkwhale/funkwhale/-/merge_requests/1072 and will ship with the april release.
You can charge for material things - paper, ink, packaging material, the time of the workers to prepare it. You can even charge for bandwidth, server upkeep, and electricity. But information has no material cost and therefore cannot be sold.

Funkwhale, dev, podcasts, federation
Another milestone today: #funkwhale channels can now successfully federate with other Funkwhale pods
Here again, sounds like an obvious feature, but up until now, my efforts were focused on federation with other platforms like Mastodon or Friendica.
While federation with other non-Funkwhale software is pretty basic (typically, the Audio activity is converted to a Note with a link to the Funkwhale page), federation with other Funkwhale pods is much deeper!
More information is federated, like the track duration, size, bitrate, the album/podcast serie if any, the track license, etc.
Also, it's not limited to Funkwhale but this merge request also ensure deletion of tracks, albums and channels is broadcasted over the federation, and handled properly when received by Funkwhale.

@matrix seems like a good idea, do you have any documentation on migration paths for a single user and potentially a group of people (family) in existing group chats (e2e enabled) ? Do we have to restart from scratch with all the key stuff ?
