Reminder: I'm trying to assemble a Working Group and a Community Group

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.


@forgefed @codeberg Could you represent #Gitea? On the panel? I think you guys are one of the bigger users of Gitea. I'm very excited about this!

@stevenroose @forgefed We cannot represent but talk about the perspective of running #Gitea. Members of the developer team like @tklk will have much better insight into the implementation and are the true representatives!

Great initiative btw!

@stevenroose @codeberg @forgefed yup, I’m one of the project leads of Gitea, and was involved with forgefed when it was just a GitHub repo (seem to still have my permissions to that GH org), although I know FF has moved away from that. Right now Gitea is focused on moving its main repo away from GH and onto a self hosted instance, and is also going through a major refactor. I’ve reached out to other maintainers if they’d like to join FF but sadly as we are volunteers our time is limited..(cont)

@stevenroose @codeberg @forgefed ...(cont) and so it’s hard to commit to a long project like FF when we are unsure of how much time we have to give at any one time. Especially now we have a self hosted instance we are spending time admin-ing the servers, and ensuring no abuse of system happens. This means even more of our time is occupied.
