We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.
And you're welcome to join the webinar on January 19th, 10am UTC+1 to learn more 😉
It's very good news that a software like Gitea supports the federation between instances and also using a free standard like activitypub through @forgefriends and being part of the fediverse. Looking forward to its implementation to migrate from GitHub to a Gitea instance 🎉 .
Are there any thoughts about changing to a more sustainable licence like the #AGPL? With federation this gets especially important. The MIT licence makes 'embrace, extend, extinguish' extremely easy: Company X creates a proprietary Gitea fork, federates with the existing instances, makes significant improvements/offers to lure people into their product. Changing to their instance is smooth thanks to federation.
Side note to @fosstodon: does this call for a new emoji?
Is this looking at federating things like comments and issues with the fediverse, or is this just about code? We REALLY need a fediverse answer to Github, to start getting the many FOSS projects on a proprietary microsoft platform onto a more privacy and FOSS friendly environment. Hoping this is a move towards this!
Anyway, either way, congrats on the funding win!
I feel bit dumb asking this but does this mean i can use my mastodon account as a gitea account? Or is this more about all gitea instances can talk with each other?
