I actually pulled my code off of GitHub (and archived it there) since I got no contribution whatsoever.
Not surprisingly when you consider that the median number of maintainers is 1.
Working across different Gitea instances is an interesting subject.
I was wondering whether WebMention or so could be used for the communication part.
Wrt discoverability, I suppose that large projects do not desperately need #github to be discoverable.
With federation we can open the ecosystem for the entire Free Software Development Lifecycle, where Github is so dominant.
Oh, I'll place a link to the #forgefriends community:
Dedicated to bringing code forges to the #Fediverse and with 2 free software projects working on that currently:
Also note that @gitea will be working on federation, hopefully in close collaboration and maybe see themselves as part of "forge friends" movement to grab the opportunities that exist.
Try doing that, privately.
We know people don't like to hear this but if a project is exclusively on Github (or CloudFlare GitLab) then its not ethical.
Thankfully, Gargron is fairly easily contactable from outside Github. Thankfully many BTC devs are easily contactable, this is **not** the case for all projects — and big ones.
At least then I know there's enough curation to assure me those projects are alive and still functional on the latest systems!
If it's not in Debian, I like asking whether anyone would actually recommend the project.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
