I am glad that @yarmo and I are in the same camp and consider that "source available" projects have no place on #delightful lists that are dedicated to curated #FOSS resources, no matter their popularity.
- MangoDB being a fully open source variant of MongoDB.
- TiKV a distributed KV store with transaction support.
- Tidis which adds a Redis-compatible API on top of TiKV.

Thanks for the prompt. I did an experiment, partly to see what works now, but also to think about what else might be needed.
Looks like @houkimenator is already using hashtags.
Group actors like @GuppeGroups can be useful: if people follow them, all of the toots mention the group actor get boosted to all of the followers.
Part 6 of 6.
If an organization wants to coordinate work or economic activity (production, distribution, and provisioning), they might want to look at the extensions that @bonfire is working on: https://bonfirenetworks.org/extensions/
Problem with those extensions is that only Bonfire pubs will understand them, as of now. Could change in the future. That would make them more generally useful.
Part 5 of n.
But I think for operating an organization in fedi, real groups of some kind will be needed.
Otherwise the firehose of federated timelines interferes with people who want to get something done.
At least something like what other social media apps sometimes call rooms or channels or even groups...
Here's an ongoing discussion about implementing groups in ActivityPub: https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/t/standardizing-on-activitypub-groups/1984
Part 4 of n.
Chartodon thread diagrams are lovely, but difficult to read (IMO).
But all the ones I have seen are tree-shaped, which means that an indented tree view like this http://valueflows.pythonanywhere.com/vocab/incoming/ would work and be more compact and easier to read.
I wonder if they could be presented as a treeview in the same UI as the main timelines, when you click Show Thread...?
Part 3 of n.
Threaded discussions are an important method for organizations to make decisions online.
Mastodon threads are just sequential lists. They don't show who replied to what.
This weakness has give rise to a bot called @Chartodon which you can invoke by the method shown on its profile.
Here's an example: https://www.solipsys.co.uk/Chartodon/107122910543282515.svg
They disappear after awhile, but I have saved a few which I can show on request.
Part 1 of n.
This is a repeat of my first conclusion: organizing will require topical discussions. Group actors that relay messages to all followers are useful for keeping those discussions together .
@organizingInFedi is a MightyPort group actor.
Alright. Let's kick this off..
"Toots speak better than tweets"
"A tweetbird can't change its spots" (relevant with masto editing coming)
"All that glitters is not tweets"
"Always put your best toot forwards"
"Among the blind the fedizen is king"
"As you toot, so we shall boost"
"Beauty is in the eye of the booster"
"Tweets killed the cat"
"Reach the Activity Pub"
Navigate the streets while avoiding the #surveillance camera's operated by your jealous partner to reach the rowdy Pub to party and get drunk.. and then stumble back home still unseen.
Use @openstreetmap to generate gameplay area, and a real overlay of CCTV locations.
I don't remember G+ Communities. Might not have participated in them..
I haven't seen Pleroma Groups, either. Will need to find some doc or something. Do you know if they federate, like can be seen in other ActivityPub software?
P.S. I did not notice the deletes and reposts, was eating lunch...
Now we need more lists, and I encourage all of you fedizens to maintain one on the topic of your interest.
What is a delightful list:
Boosts appreciated 💎
