Now that I've mucked about with GNU Social for a while, I like the concept and all, but I'm not quite so keen on how it seems like it's just not being developed anymore. Like, at all. No commits to the repo in ages and everything.

So I'm thinking of trying to install something else and give it a shot (still not keen on Mastodon's sizable dependency list), but the catch is that nothing seems really able to import a list of posts from other installations (and GNU Social doesn't seem to have a good export feature to begin with, from what I can tell). This could make such things tricky.
I'm still kinda digging the idea of running my own instance for laughs, though. :-)
