@lain not sure what I went wrong but I couldn't get my own pleroma instance running. The federation did not work somehow. Not sure if using develop branch is a good idea but v0.9.0 wouldn't work with the erlang version provided by Arch Linux. But I guess I'll keep trying because I really want to get it up and running.
