Looking for some volunteers to test the diaspora-installer package in #debian.
All it takes is setting up a lxc container or vm locally, installing diaspora package and testing it in a browser on your host machine (create an account, post some status, share some photos etc).
Keep the package updated when new versions are released. Let me know if you are interested.
I was not very actively maintaining this package for some time, now planning to be more active.
Any comment and feedback to me? open for some time only. Use @torproject to access
