NOTE: If anyone wants to be added to this list just let me know.

Ok so this seems to be most of the people who publicly stated they had interest in developing the "United Federation of Instances". All of you should have gotten the first draft and opinions were heard and discussed.

Today I will be moving the first draft over to git (either git.qoto.org or gitlab.com). From there I will encourage each of you to provide suggestions as to edits there, and raise discussions in issues. This way we will be public and have an open transparent forum that keeps the changes on record.

While public feedback is being debated on the proposal I will begin a rough draft on the complete by laws (which will try to represent the broader points in the proposal document). That too will be on gitlab and open to discussion

From there as the movement grows we can begin discussing launching it.

I suggest all communication on the fediverse about this use the hashtag so it is easily searchable.

Since this is a public post I will now share the link to the early draft here, please keep in mind everything here is open for discussion so if anyone doesnt like the current direction, please speak up, we want you to be heard.

I disagree with "6. Nudity and pornography must be posted either unlisted,
with a content warning, or both." Sex workers shouldn't be treated as something shameful that needs to be hidden. Nudity is ultimately, normal and healthy, and should be treated as such.

Quick thought. I just ran out and bought the following two domains for this:

UnitedFederationOfInstances (both .com and .org)

and

UFoI.org

Perhaps we should move the hashtag to instead? Thoughts.

From a branding perspective, makes sense to move the hashtag for uniformity
