@cwebber @bob Actually, to the contrary, Robek refuted the "war is coming" part in the same article, so it was a bit unfair to say he "characterizes it as war". To cite the original article: "Actually, there’s not a war coming. Really, things are just business as usual for the OStatus protocol networks which have been around for nearly a decade."

The W3C doesn't maintain OStatus at all. There are some other things as well. But anyway, okay. I removed the call for a federation history entirely.
