@dev in layman's terms, what is the difference?

@dev sorry I was referring to activitypub vs litepub.

@gaab@mastodon.technology ActivityPub is super broad whereas LitePub tries to create a smaller subset of it (with some "explicit rules" like HTTP signatures for authentication).

It also try to think more about security (like LICE), while staying compatible with regular ActivityPub implementation.

@dev Gotcha, thanks. Was asking because most of the LitePub site actually just gives a 404 error :(

@gaab @dev somebody has offered to help with editorial tasks, so hopefully that will improve soon. i just need to actually talk with them about what to write.
