Description : a system for operating distributed forums
Syndie is a system for operating distributed forums, offering a secure
and consistent interface to various anonymous and non-anonymous
Syndie operates like blogs, newsgroups, and forums. Authors can post
messages privately or publicly. Messages are pushed and pulled to and
from archive servers, which are hosted in a variety of anonymous and
non-anonymous networks including I2P, Tor, and Freenet.
Syndie has a long history and is in a way well-known (it even has a
dedicated Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syndie).
However, the lack of good documentation and some missing dependency in
major distros, especially I2P, have been keeping people actually using
it. Now Debian/Ubuntu has i2p/i2pd packages, it's appropriate timing
to package it.
Syndie is a part of the I2P Project, and I am one of the current
upstream caretakers of Syndie.
