hello queer.af friends!
the past few days have been a little rocky, but we're working on a change review process, and in general working on our process and policies for running this instance and its infrastructure
we're encountering some growing pains, but we're fleshing these things out because we're intending to be here for the long run ^_^

queer.af/ is going down for maintenace shortly while we roll back a borked deployment. We really should have a status page or something.

Update: we're rolling it back for now. There will be a short bit of downtime.

@embr @minty_da and as I always like to remind everyone: if your end-to-end-encrypted messaging frontend is provided by the same people as the backend, then you're trusting that they haven't swapped it out with a version that uploads the keys to them
though with mastodon it's much more feasible for that _not_ to be the case
