Aight, so notes on migrating to a new Mastodon instance:

I found the ff helpful: edtechfactotum.com/migrating-t

I was able to successfully create the alias to the old account on this new account, so the bug mentioned in the above is already fixed.

However, I was unable to create the redirect from the old account ("is not an alias of this account"). Looks like a cache invalidation issue (github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i), I'll try again in a couple of days I guess

Update: finally got @roytang@mastodon.technology and @roytang@mastodon.social to redirect here. Apparently that results in a bunch of notifs as your followers are automatically forwarded to the new account!

curl https://indieweb.social/.well-known/webfinger?resource=roytang@indieweb.social

This command run in shell should return json output with your old ID among the values for β€œalias” but it’s not showing
