Internal logic

When Funkwhale receives an Accept activity related to a Follow activity, it marks the Follow as accepted in the database. If the Follow activity relates to a Library object, the requester receives future activities associated with the library. This includes Create and Delete activities as well as Audio objects. They can also browse and download the library’s audio files.


In this example, Bob accepts a follow request from Alice.
