Milestone: OAuth 2.0

March 27, 2022 — GNU social development team

OAuth support is accomplished via a GNU social plugin.

Accompanying it came the possibility of a plugin feature a shell script for setting pre-requirements that can be automatically executed by GNU social's installer.

There was also an upgrade of the core authentication stack that made it more simple and flexible.

Finally, the plugin was tested with AndStatus, related discussion available at: AndStatus #549.
