Tent is a protocol for open, decentralized social networking. Tent users share content with apps and each other. Anyone can run a Tent server, or write an app or alternative server implementation that uses the Tent protocol.
I understand some of the differences between Tent and OStatus. However, the distributed nature of Tent seems very similar to XMPP Federation and Presence PubSub. Feel free to reply and close this issue quickly, since this isn’t a typical bug report.
