What could be done ? I feel it is a terrible mess after 2 1/2 years.

I hope and trust that Melvin will reconsider and transfer the domain to the solid organization or something which will take care of it

in the meantime we’re working on some fast alternative options for people - stay tuned

Some application are using https://solid.community/common/popup.html to login as indicated in https://github.com/solid/solid-auth-client. It is not working anymore.
It must be replaced.
I use https://inrupt.net/common/popup.html

Maybe solid.community should look at taking on investors to fund the project instead of relying on donations of time, would it not be prudent to consider altrernitive options? Inrupt has investors to support its vision, why not solid.community?
Tom Gallivan
@sideshowtom
Donors, not investors. Like public libraries, the brick and mortar kind.
Mike Adams
@mikeadams1
@sideshowtom agreed that donors is prefered in some instances, but in this case, i think that maybe Inrupt could take over solid.community because they have the investors to support the vision. Also, as many are aware, I donated inrupt.community domain to inrupt @melvincarvalho why not consider doing the same?
Tom Gallivan
@sideshowtom
@mikeadams1 That was good of you but we should move beyond Inrupt if possible.
Mike Adams
@mikeadams1
No,no,no! Inrupt has taken the lead on this project and promised to bring solid.community over the line!
Tom Gallivan
@sideshowtom
Solid is bigger than Inrupt. Hopefully.
Mike Adams
@mikeadams1
I know there are a lot of differences of opinion between the solid community and intupt however, we need to move beyond all of that, and creat a safety net so that solid.community can get back online.

@sideshowtom
Its more about independence and motivation. I don't see the urgency. People knew their pods were experimental.
Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
@happybeing
I think this shows the susceptibility of the service and servers model. It really doesn't get us away from centralisation. We can do better than this if we're ready to abandon servers. One of the great things about the Solid specification and philosophy, is that by putting the logic in the client you can do this. This is what creates the synergy with Safe Network, and why I was able to create a proof of concept demo that had a Solid app running on Safe Network. I'm hopeful people will begin to get behind this at some point!
Mike Adams
@mikeadams1
Actually, it is not experimental, this was not an experiment, it is a prototype imlimintation of a solid server.
implementation

Before Solid on Safe takes shape (so to speak), we need a non profit organization to become a pod provider and provide promises about longevity and stability.
and privacy

@sideshowtom
I think it makes sense to try to get funding from somewhere.
Maybe an existing organization would be interested
Tom Gallivan
@sideshowtom
A non profit organization.
Or maybe we could just form one
Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
@happybeing

Before Solid on Safe takes shape (so to speak), we need a non profit organization to become a pod provider and provide promises about longevity and stability.

The point of Solid on Safe is that it eliminates the need for a pod provider.

Tom Gallivan
@sideshowtom
Yeah, but until thats working...
Can it pass the test suite? Also as far as I know Safe itself is not non profit.
Mark Hughes (happybeing/theWebalyst)
@happybeing
I made a proof of concept so it is a long way from Solid compatible, but a start! Safe will be an autonomous network, not a commercial operation. Maidsafe Ltd. is a company, majority owned by a Scottish Charity The Maidsafe Foundation, and there are no other large shareholders in Maidsafe Ltd, just employees and small investors.

Hey all, the new domain for solid.community is up at https://solidcommunity.net. This should retain all of your pod data and account information from Solid.community
Let us know if you run into any hiccups!
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@jaxxoncreed @team Huge thank you, works like a charm. community++. do we continue to use the gitlab group ?
Justin Bingham
@justinwb
@ewingson we’ll work on figuring out the support structure and mechanisms over the coming days now that we’re migrated over
Matthias Evering
@ewingson
@justinwb this migration done (in just one single day) was kinda a world class improvisation

Where is the link to change passwords? I suggest changing passwords should be at the top of the list of things to do for users after hopping over to solidcommunity.net

Hi Tim, Mitzi - hope you are doing well. I’m new onto the Github chat- please can you let me know where the Solid roadmap is that you referred to on the August solid world session.
thanks
Sarven Capadisli
@csarven
  1. Users should change/reset passwords on solidcommunity.net
  2. Remove solid.community from trustedApp list. Or consider replacing them with solidcommunity.net
  3. Remove solid.community from pod/IdP lists

@timbl
Hi @trpstar . The roadmap is has moved with all of solid.community to solidcommunity.net — so https://solidos.solidcommunity.net/public/Roadmap/Tasks/index.ttl#this
