Muddy foundations

So don't worry, ActivityPub's test suite isn't a MUD, despite me making that joke-threat.

And yet it's using a bunch of the stuff from Mudsync (which you can see a demo of on the video on the 8sync homepage) so while it's not a MUD, it is using some of that as a foundation, har har har har har.

Don't worry, input'ing things does not resemble a text adventure, as tempting as that was. But imagine the future that could have been:

the computer prints out 'what is the name of your implementation'
> input Pubstrate onto computer
computer: Now running tests for 'Pubstrate onto computer'
> No that's not what I wanted aughhhh
Sorry, I don't know how to No that's not what I wanted aughhhh

I don't see any reason not to use MUD text in your test cases though... ;)

Yep, just like the Romeo and Juliette theme is used in XMPP XEPs =)

@cwebber@identi.ca alright, but for next April 1 I hope to see an announcement and initial implementation of the Full MUD Test Suite

All jokes aside, that kind of reuse is pretty cool.
