Gitea (nightly edition) now has nodeinfo support. One (very tiny) step towards full federation. Thanks to @techknowlogick, @dachary @fedeproxy (and many others) for making this happen!

Today also (coincidentally) happened to be the day of the submission of the NLnet grant application for work on federation.

These are indeed very exciting times, and we are very proud and thankful of the community surrounding Gitea.

@gitea @fedeproxy @dachary

I consider this one of the most important developments on the #Fediverse and a huge opportunity for #Gitea (and other forges to follow) to distinguish themselves from walled garden platforms in unique ways.

Hereby also calling out to all fedizens to imagine how to become part of a new #foss ecosystem that opens up. It goes way beyond the planned MVP implementation, and a new paradigm is within our grasp.

Some inspiration here on #SocialHub

@gitea This is very exciting. Thanks to the team working for this. Hopefully, it will make working with projects on different instances way easier, without ever needing to create an account for each one. Crazy how no other code repo software thought about this.

@gitea Will it be possible to turn it off? :ablobthinking:

I want to express my appreciation of the openness and cooperation of @gitea @fedeproxy @forgefed and all contributors. Since joining the #fediverse I have come to know an entirely different social space, an antidote to the intransparent development processes of #github #microsoft and friends, as well as the artificial walling off even when building on existing standards as done with XMPP in Zoom, WhatsApp and Slack & co.

@techknowlogick @dachary @gitea @fedeproxy @yunohost @forgefed

GREAT! Finding out this toot is making me seriously think about finally packing up my stuff in #GitHub, and switching to a #Gitea instance, self-hosted via #Yunohost.

I know it is a lot to ask, but is there an ETA for the implementation of full federation?

#ForgeFed #federation #ActivityPub #git #fedeproxy

@yunohost @fedeproxy @forgefed @dachary @gitea @techknowlogick

Still, I am conflicted… should I self-host or should I rely on @codeberg?

If source code hosting eventually becomes federated, it will not make much of a difference, nevertheless, #Codeberg has a huge appeal. I don’t really know.

Any tips or suggestions? Articles I could read?

@tommi @yunohost @fedeproxy @forgefed @gitea @techknowlogick @codeberg

As a co-maintainer of a Gitea instance with a hundred users or so I can testify it is not a lot of work (a few hours a month on average, moderation included). If you're not happy with such a sysadmin overhead, codeberg (or any other publicly open Gitea instance) will be a better fit.

@forgefed @techknowlogick @yunohost @fedeproxy @codeberg @gitea @dachary

Actually, I was considering to host a gitea instance for myself only, at… is it a dumb idea?

@tommi @forgefed @techknowlogick @yunohost @fedeproxy @codeberg @gitea

IMHO self-hosting a personal Gitea instance a great idea 😍 I offered my first hand experience co-maintaining a modest Gitea public instance because that's all I know.

Managing a personal Gitea instance is going to be less work, in particular because you don't have to worry about moderation.

@dachary @forgefed @techknowlogick @yunohost @fedeproxy @codeberg @gitea

Ok, take it as a too impulsive action, but I got a domain and I installed #Gitea on it.

In the next few days I will be migrating my repositories!

@tommi @forgefed @techknowlogick @yunohost @fedeproxy @codeberg @gitea @dachary

Not at all.Having a local instance is also useful to me for some things, and its not very hard to setup or maintain. Having lived at extended times with no connectivity at all, it is also a useful stand-by.

@tommi @yunohost @fedeproxy @forgefed @dachary @gitea @techknowlogick @codeberg

I do like the idea of not having to master gitea just to use it, worry about updating, backups, etc, so there is clearly always an important role for things like codeberg. If federated gitea becomes more like mastodon, with instances formed around communities of common interests, that seems even better.

@tommi @techknowlogick @gitea @fedeproxy @yunohost @forgefed

There is no ETA. I'm happily working on code and it will be ready when it is ready 😜 I'm not fast but I'm persistent.

@yunohost @techknowlogick @gitea @fedeproxy @dachary @forgefed

This is good to know. No worries, thank you very much. Sorry if I asked, but I am very impatient, even if I am not even a developer.

@gitea @techknowlogick @dachary @fedeproxy What I miss the most in Gitea (and the reason I prefer Gitlab) is syndication. Is it planned?

@bortzmeyer @gitea @techknowlogick @fedeproxy

It appears @6543 merged a commit to implement RSS feeds partially last month. Good to know #Gitea is making progress in this direction.

@bortzmeyer @dachary @gitea @techknowlogick @fedeproxy @6543

This question is deep inside the #geekproblem

Q. why does atom exist, did atom move us to a better #openweb or did its creation help with the decline.

There are no easy ansears to these questions, please try not to add to the mess.

@gitea how did I miss this announcement. Very very exciting! I agree with everyone in this thread underlining how important this is.

By now you should know if you got the grant, I suppose? Did it go through? :blobcat:
