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.
