Bonfire federated groups

Create, join and manage federated groups across instances

Bonfire is an extensible open source federated community platform, that empowers groups to easily configure their spaces from the ground up, according to a variety of needs and visions.

Bonfire envisions a web of independent but interconnected social networks (using a wide definition, since we consider the social components of activities in the economic, educational, and political spheres as well) - able to speak and transfer information among each other, according to their own boundaries and preferences.

The scope of this project is to give users the tools to create, join and manage federated groups across instances, with their own set of rules and customisable governance. Federated groups on Bonfire will lever the flexible foundation we've recently released: circles and boundaries. Using those building blocks we will ensure that groups have the possibility to define a fine grained set of roles and permissions, with the possibility for each group to define a multitude of roles that fit with how they want to manage membership and participation, and distribute power and responsibility.
