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