    WordPress has automatic updates for core, plugins and themes. I’ve never had any problems with it, running a very basic WordPress site. Would something like that be possible for Lemmy?

      I doubt it tbh. A static wordpress site is infinitely less complex than something that constantly needs to take in and distribute content from/to thousands of endpoints with potentially many different api versions on the other side.

      Im not that deep into activitypub stuff but from my understanding, automatic updates are not really a good idea in this case.

      Yes, I could easily configure our Podman containers to auto-update, but given how there have been significant breaking bugs in Lemmy releases before, I think it’s better to not automate it.

        And I appreciate your choice (considering a good number of communities I enjoy are on your instance).

        Personally I think anything prod level should be manual updates only anyway.
