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.

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?

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.
