I am going to start seriously advocating Hubzilla for CONfederated communities. Apart from having it installed (soon to be, as soon as I get to understand Docker), I would be happy to see some structured (perhaps as an infographics) view of various terms and features.
I can intuitively group them:
instance, account
Identity, channel, privacy group, forum
tag, category
post, article

But it will need time and practice to get relationships between them. So, perhaps someone did the job before?
I know that  you can find infos in the help-pages... this can help a little.

I just tried to connect to my account/channel/profile at https://walkaway.space/@Petros (Mastodon). tried both forms of the address, with default protocol, [ostatus] and [activitypub].

I keep getting "Remote channel or protocol unavailable." and "Channel discovery failed."

Please advise.
if  you "absolutely" need to federate with mastodon or diaspora...

Hello everybody,

From the specification it seems that #Hubzilla can be a perfect software both for me as a user, and for my community (https://cnicoop.wordpress.com).

I glanced through the list of apps and it is impressive. Now, what we need to learn is about connectors/bridges and federation. Also, as we are going to host it in our VPS, we will need to learn more about security.

Hope it is a start of great adventure.
