I understand that many projects have been locked in as a result of a choice made in the past.

However, it makes little sense to me to see new, interesting projects to opt for while there are less unethical code hosting platforms out there.

@dimitrisk @rysiek for me, it's discoverability: I use shitty GH code search a lot. I think I'd get a lot less contributors in a private Gitea instance. I hope that these impediments will be solved in the future.

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.

Or we go back to classical mailing lists with all their downsides.

Wrt discoverability, I suppose that large projects do not desperately need to be discoverable.

Small and single-person projects may benefit from the community culture present in non big-tech, platforms as well, instead of being lost in the github crowd.

@dimitrisk @rysiek @RyunoKi @astro @forgefriends @forgefed Discoverability? Who just wanders around GitHub looking for projects? I've literally never done that and can't imagine why I'd bother.


@be @dimitrisk @RyunoKi @astro @forgefriends @forgefed that's kind of my internal reaction too, but I've learned that my lack of imagination is not a great proof that something isn't a thing. 😉
