news ๐Ÿ˜€

We sent @NGIZero the funding plan, waiting for them to approve it. The funded work, by zPlus and me, will be the spec, reference implementation (Vervis), implementation in existing forge (Pagure), and an implementation guide.

Possibly work on Gitea will get funded too, we don't know yet.

The virus is slowing down my work, I hope it doesn't for the others! zPlus and I happen to be in countries where it's pretty crazy right now. Stay safe and strong โ˜ฎ&โค

update! ๐Ÿ˜€

We're planning to implement in both and . Still waiting to finalize funding details with NLNet.

Implementation of author-hosted tickets in Vervis is in progress, and so is OAuth2. Next will come patches/MRs, and then we can finally release that Draft 1 along with a demo.

We're looking into making better docs, maybe a talk too. Would you prefer to read, or to see/hear me explaining? ๐Ÿ˜‹

NLNet @NGIZero has approved funding for !

There are many potential tasks and related projects that haven't been taken by anyone yet. This is an amazing chance to get funded for working on an awesome free software and decentralized internet project!

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

Weekly update ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ^_^

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 :)

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ

--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!

news! ๐Ÿ‘พ

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@mastodon.social 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 :)

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! :)

Weekly update! ๐Ÿ’ช

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

Latest news from !

The ticket comment demo (socialhub.network/t/vervis-tic) got many views but very few people actually made the steps. Feedback on your experience trying (or not trying) it is highly appreciated :)

I'm working on federated open-new-ticket, almost done! Demo coming soon!

Spec got some updates, thank you @zplus & @bill_auger! After the next demo, I'll update the spec draft too with all the latest info, and deploy an HTML version :)
