Both the English and the German Wikipedia page start with that, but they give no source for it
Wikipedia is supposed to have sources for everything and they say that they are not a publisher of original thought
So Wikipedia can not be where we take our definition for the word Fediverse. That said, it looks like there's no definition of Fediverse, it just kind of evolved into what it is on that page.
The oldest protocols - I mean http and SMTP, POP3, IMAP were not considered. Although -if you look at https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fediverse#Konzept described in the German Wikipedia as a benchmark, the networks, communities based on it belong to Fediverse. What does the round think about it?
Die ältesten Protokolle - ich meine http und SMTP, POP3, IMAP blieben dabei unberücksichtigt. Obwohl - wenn man in der deutschen Wikipedia beschriebenes https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fediverse#Konzept als Messlatte betrachtet, gehören die darauf basierende Netzwerke, Communitys zu Fediverse. Was meint die Runde dazu?
