@anant Searching @ondrej works for me just fine: https://mastodon.social/@email@example.com
@anant And both:
curl -SL https://sury.org/.well-known/host-meta
curl -SL https://mastodon.rfc1925.org/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:firstname.lastname@example.org
works for me just fine. So, perhaps you are expecting something else, but the @ondrej is configure to the book.
@ondrej on further digging into this host-meta was old suggestion from mastodon now they suggest directly redirecting web finger https://docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/config/ mastodon instances still look for hostmeta but other softwares might not look for it. I have raised request on software that i am using but noting down that host meta redirection was old suggestion and you might also want to redirect webfinger url. Hope it helps
@ondrej Ah i think i found the issue but will have to dig a bit. seems like error at my software end. seems my fediverse software looks for webfinger on your base domain and since that doesnt redirect it cant search properly. but this is just a hunch will validate and might raise a ticket with them first.
@ondrej looks like my suspicion was correct https://github.com/superseriousbusiness/gotosocial/issues/1558 bug raised. hopefully this specific usecase will also get covered.
@ondrej It does indeed. could be a fluke at my end thanks for checking and responding. was trying to follow you and your bot id as i just installed PHP using your repo. Thanks for the good work.
