i see a lot of people on here wanting a plugin architecture for mastodon or mastodon-alikes. what do y'all _actually_ want out of that? like, which things do you want to be able to implement and how?
i'm interested because i've been thinking about how to do this in #rustodon, and that's highly dependent on what applications people care about
Polls and calendars are the two features I hear most often in the context of plugins. Also, there are a lot of different patterns for permissions and moderation so that's a good feature to have implemented via plugin. The most common difference between implementations right now is optimization for media, so that's a good candidate for abstracting to a plug in. If you cover those, others who would really give it a work out would have enough hooks
