Mastodon has a strategy in play for adding LDAP support, for organisations like Disroot that use LDAP to allow the same credentials to be used on multiple services. The Mastodon maintainer’s attitude to the issue seems much more constructive than what we saw on BountySource from the Disapora maintainers. Would the Disroot admins be willing to set up an instance of Mastodon as a federated micro-blogging service once their LDAP support is complete?
Hosting mastodon instance has been on our radar for quite sometime. Indeed the possibility of having ldap support in the new major release is just asking for us to host it. We are still in the process of migrating to new hardware after which we will have to do some calculations and monitoring of our resource capabilities.
There are few services we would like to host as disroot so we will have to see in the coming weeks (through community feedback about which we will inform later this month) which one is the most desired.

I’ve been running a mastodon instance at https://social.tilde.team for a year or so and it’s pretty low-maintenance. Anyone is welcome to hop on there in the meantime!
We made 360 degree turn and are now intensively testing hubzilla (which federates to mastodon). It looks very impresive although some work needs to be done to have it ‘avarage joe’ ready. which is what we focus on now together with some disrooters.
@bhh nice to see federated instances all over the place \o/
Hubzilla does look pretty cool!
Anything I can do to help?
I have a VPS that’s sitting unoccupied that I would be willing to use for disroot purposes (though it is in the US and under US jurisdiction :/)
Hubzilla has an amazing range of features, many of them made possible by the ground-breaking Zot protocol created for the project. Hubzilla is the only app that connects with all the other fediverse apps, by implementing OStatus, Diaspora protocol (and possibly DFRN).
It certainly needs UX work, so I’m excited to hear that the Disroot crew are getting involved with that. My only niggle is that you’re already running a lot of services, and the only thing you really need to add is a federated server for OStatus/ ActivityPub (micro-blog). Hubzilla will certainly give you that, but it also duplicates many of the apps you’re already running (Diaspora, aspects of Discourse, parts of NextCloud etc). Maybe that means you could retire some apps, but I wonder if you would be better to save yourselves the UX work and the rejig and just install Mastodon?
I am keen to clone the Disroot setup using my Disintermedia.net.nz domain, and I’d be happy to help improve the Disroot playbooks and user manuals in the process, and maybe mirror them on FLOSSManuals.net. My country is also a 5 Eyes country, so not too concerned about US hosting, at least for an invite-only experimental service. If you’re keen to collaborate, get in touch:
Just out of curiosity, what software does Disroot use to implement LDAP? Is it FreeIPA?
