What do people want to happen with shared content? Speak up.
We currently (in dev) provide two options. The first is 'Repeat'. When this is selected, the original post is shared with a larger audience (all the connections of the person sharing it). However, all comments go back to the original. This is a problem in Zap (and Hubzilla) because usually only connections of the original author can comment. So the connections of the Sharer can see the post but only interact if they connect with the original author.
The other options is the "Share". This forks the conversation. All connections of the sharer can comment on the shared post, but these do not get relayed back to the post author, because these people don't have permission to comment on the original post. In addition, the sharer can add commentary to the original post.
Do you want one or the other or both? Which should have priority? I want your feedback..
