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.
