Support activity / post comment synchronisation for custom post types

We currently support activity stream / post comment synchronisation. However, this is 'hard coded' to just work with standard blog posts, and doesn't support custom post types.

The underlying synchronisation support should be made more generic -- supporting custom post types as well as standard blog posts.

I suggest it would be a significant boost if the synchronisation worked for post type activities registered using the new post type activities tracking code, and in the ideal world if it could be used by any post type (regardless of whether tracking is registered by the post type activities code, or by a custom component implementation).

I mostly agree except for the ideal world. As Custom component can set the 'buddypress-activities' for any post type, it would be the same for comments.

It's another part of the work we'll need to do about this huge ticket: #3460

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
