Reminder: I'm trying to assemble a Working Group talk.feneas.org/t/working-grou and a Community Group talk.feneas.org/t/monthly-comm

This is the time to ask developers of forges (GitLab, Gitea, etc.) and ticket trackers (OpenProject, Taiga, etc.) to implement federation and to join the work on ForgeFed.

If you don't join, you don't get your needs taken into account, and we'll have a less useful lower quality spec.

Reminder, join if this stuff matters to you. And spread the word.

It's time for a round of review of ForgeFed discussions! 😀 😀 😀

Instructions: talk.feneas.org/t/monthly-comm

Happy participation! We need you, let's make federated forges happen :)

More news 😍

We're going to have monthly community review rounds yay! They'll happen on the 1st Friday of each month. If you can't make it on Friday that's fine (let's try to focus the effort on the week following the Friday).

This Friday, 2 days from now, will be the first community review round! Mark the date :)

Instructions: talk.feneas.org/t/monthly-comm

🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏 🙏

On Fridays 7PM UTC there is a weekly project jam on IRC/Matrix (see links in profile) and everyone is welcome!!

Thank you for voting! Looks like we'll do monthly community review rounds. More details soon :)

We're working towards releasing the first spec draft, which will include a basic minimal feature set:

- Push Activity automatic publishing when commits are pushed to repos
- Federated opening of issues and commenting on them
- Federated patches and merge requests

More news soon!

Would you like to participate in ForgeFed, regularly review the open issues, affect the decisions? If yes, how often would you want to allocate time for that?

If people do, I'll announce once in a while when open issues have accumulated and it's time for reviews and decisions :)

Hey people! ForgeFed update:

- Demo went well! Big thanks to everyone who participated 🙏🏼
- We got our 2 implementations, MCFI and Vervis, to federate! 💪🏼
- Spec is getting updates!

There are lots details to discuss, and feedback is needed! If you are developing federated software, or interested in ForgeFed, please come to talk.feneas.org and go over the ForgeFed & categories and share thoughts and opinions and experience :)

Hello everyone! The demo is here :)

Vervis Demo 3 - Push Activities and Repo Following

talk.feneas.org/t/vervis-demo-

Have fun!

--fr33

(I'll be updating the spec, and after that I'll probably take a little break before the next step: Federated merge requests)

Weekly update 🙂

The Friday project jam was very productive! @zplus@gnusocial.no and I have been working on the Push Activity demo, during and after the jam. After tons of fixing and tweaking, it's almost ready! I know I keep saying that ^_^

It will be a small simple demo, but I'm very excited about all the recent work behind it, and about the cool things coming in the next demos (such as federated merge requests)! I hope the next toot here will finally have a demo link ^_^

--fr33

Hello community!

Following and unfollowing is implemented in , Push activities are generated when you `git push` or `darcs push`. I'm doing some little UI tweaks and writing the demo instructions :)

Pushing to repos as a remote collaborator is much more complicated, and is still being discussed, and will come in the next demos.

Btw the forum, SocialHub, is back at a new address: socialhub.activitypub.rocks

(Our forum is still at talk.feneas.org)

More news soon :)

Ah, one more thing! Friday 7PM UTC we have a project jam in the Peers community, and everyone is welcome to join!

IRC: on Freenode
Matrix: :matrix.org

ForgeFed tasks you can help with: Check out the open issues and the forum topics, write feedback. Ask questions, to let us know what's missing in the docs. Hack on MCFI and Vervis. Look into initial ActivityPub support in existing forges such as CI and .

Also, just have nice chat and inspire each other :)

--fr33

Hello brave souls :)

now has follow buttons, and I'm almost done implementing unfollowing. Then I'll check how difficult it is to generate Push activities for .

I'd like to work faster, dedicate more time to ! I finally applied for some funding. If I'm lucky and get NLNet funding, I can do dedicated full-time work on ForgeFed for a whole year! If you have ideas for other such organizations that have relevant funding programs, please tell me :)

update 🙂

Repos are actors. There's now an activity type called Push, and such an activity can published automatically whenever you push new commits into a repo. In Vervis, I implemented this for Git, not yet for Darcs.

What remains for the demo:

- Implement following (WIP, almost done)
- Darcs support (TODO if not too much work)

I hope to get this done very soon ^_^

Btw, happy autumn 🍁

--fr33

work continues :)

Using git post-receive hooks, Vervis can now be notified whenever new commits are pushed into repos.

I'm now working on publishing and delivering a ForgeFed/ActivityPub Push activity when notified on those git pushes. Then I'll check if there's a nice way to do the same for Darcs.

Vervis federation demo 3 - VCS Push Activities - coming soon! And then, another round of spec updates :)

Next will probably be federated patches and merge requests!

Hello universe! It's been a while ^_^

I had a life transition, been busy with it, didn't have much time for computer work. But the project is very much alive!

@criztovyl is working on federation in GitLab CE. I'm working on Push activities in Vervis, which will be auto-generated from VCS pushes.

The spec documents are still waiting for me to give them lots of love, but here they are. The vocabulary spec is the interesting part right now.

forgefed.angeley.es

Thx 4 all the ❤

news! 👾

criztovyl is looking into adding federation to GitLab!

zPlus created a light theme for the spec, and ikomi created a dark theme! I'll share a link soon :)

I finally fixed dev builds in Vervis! @jazzyeagle and ikomi are looking into improving the UI. I'm excited about this!

Speccing of commit notification and display is making good progress. Almost ready to implement the basics in Vervis.

More news soon :)

--fr33

update!

My pace has been a bit slow due to some away-from-keyboard priorities, but work is happening!

I'm fixing the development builds in Vervis to allow people to build locally and work on UI.

Comment and ticket-opening federation is successful so far. The next thing I'll bring to the spec draft (and implement) is VCS commit notifications. Then, patches and merge requests.

Announcing the 2nd Vervis federation demo!

1st demo was about federated ticket comments. This new demo is about **federated opening of new tickets**.

talk.feneas.org/t/vervis-demo-

If you haven't tried the 1st demo, it should still work, so you can easily do both 1st and 2nd. I don't remove features when I add new ones ;-)

Take a look and leave a comment there (or here) if you have a moment! :)

-- fr33

Weekly update! 💪

Vervis is ready for the federated-ticket-creation demo! I'm giving it a few more days of feedback and polishing rounds, and then I'll announce it.

I'm working on some spec draft updates, both meta (such as HTML rendering) and content (listing all the types, properties and behaviors developed so far).

The other projects are in progress too.

Btw, interesting distributed collab projects:

- Radicle: radicle.xyz/
- git-ssb: git.scuttlebot.io/%25n92DiQh7i
