Packaging Request #1700
Please package a program to communicate with Mastodon.

Functions like sending messages to my stream and to individual accounts. I want to be able to view my stream, subscribe to others easily and with few steps. I would also like to personalize my program without the need of coding in a stern language. If it requires little power and is standalone that is a plus. Attachments on toots are a bonus.

Of the clients listed in the official mastodon website https://joinmastodon.org/apps
there are two, Whalebird and Hyperspace, based on Electron wrapper, and it's a problem that has been addressed in the Chromium platform issue.
Tootle, according to the GitHub page, is a GTK3 client
and it lists the following dependencies:
Of those, is there any dependency that conflicts with users freedoms?

i have had both toot and tootle installed since this issue was opened - i dont use them often; but i have had no problems using them
the deps are all in parabola; but i have not audited the code yet - i will publish the PKGBUILDs though, to get things moving - i suspect that these are both perfectly acceptable programs
