I thought this had been discussed (and rejected) in the past - as far
back as the mailing list. What's changed since then in terms
of the StatusNet protocol serving as the basis for the GNU Social

What of all the other discussion on this list regarding other protocols?

Personally, it is still my opinion that a higher-level protocol,
speaking in terms of abstract concepts, and implemented over several
other protocols, including OStatus and everything else, as transports,
would be best for this GNU World we're building, and I don't understand
why OStatus alone is being singled out now. The StatusNet codebase has
been mature as long as this project has been alive.
