Relooking at IndieAuth for

“This year, the IndieWeb community has been making progress on iterating and evolving the IndieAuth protocol. IndieAuth is an extension of OAuth 2.0 that enables it to work with personal websites and in a decentralized environment…We’ve been focusing on simplifying the protocol and bringing it more in line with OAuth 2.0 so that it’s both easier to understand and also easier to adapt existing OAuth clients and servers to add IndieAuth support.”

This was (I think discussed at GitHub a while back) but would these new extensions make it something worth another look to assist in user account authentication in Mastodon?
