Just on a whim, I used git to pull the latest Friendica to my server and see if it would do anything towards fixing its inability to leave maintenance mode.

It changed what the maintenance mode page looks like, but that's about it.

I wonder if they fixed the MySQL syntax issues I found. I could find out by going through update.php, but I'm not even supposed to be working on this right now.

I just went digging through the database of my old Friendica site (which I never could get working again after a migrate-and-upgrade earlier this year) looking for contacts to re-federate with.

Most of them were Diaspora, and with few or no exceptions the last activity on their profiles (where still available) was 3 years ago. I added connections to a few of them anyway.

Friendica was much rarer.

Then I went hopping through the local Hubzilla directory, and added a few more people.

Nothing new showing up in my "activity", but maybe they have to confirm or something... or maybe there hasn't been time for HZ to fetch the posts...

There were also a dozen or two real people accounts on my node (and hundreds of bots); I wish there was some way to export their accounts and re-establish them here.
