Hello @Friendica Support
I'm sorry to disturb the peace of the weekend but I think we have to sort these issues out before the next release.
Someone from Diaspora was "complaining" about the fact that a soapbox account of my server doesn't have a "bio" aka. profile info explaining that the account is actually a bot mirroring a news feed. This was a surprise to me because the account has this info on Friendica. So I started to look into this.
I have an old account on despora.de. The old
connections there were totally fine. If I change the profile info in Friendica the updates are federated to Diaspora. Everything looking good. But newer
connections aren't updated and are showing some other issues. So I made a completely new account on Geraspora and made some tests...
Soapbox account connected to Diaspora: no profile info and "doesn't share with you"
As you can see there are two problems. First Diaspora shows the contact as "doesn't share with you" and the "bio" is missing. On Friendica's side everything looks normal for a soapbox account (sk_test is a fan of you).
Maybe this is a special problem with soapbox accounts? Unfortunately not.
Mutual/bidirectional friendship with the Geraspora test account
I started a new connection between the Diaspora test account an my normal Friendica account. I added email@example.com on Geraspora and accepted the request on Friendica. Again, everything looks okay on Friendica. But...
Normal account connected to Friendica: no profile info and "doesn't share with you"
A public test posting doesn't arrive at Geraspora's side, too.
The probe of the account looks like this:
[pubkey]=> -----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----
-----END PUBLIC KEY-----
Is this a problem on our side with the implementation of the new Diaspora protocol? Or is it a problem with my server only? What do you think?
