And to address your concern, we're thinking to try a sustainably model where you can pay for convenience (in the form of optional cloud services and preconfigured hardware) but everything is FLOSS so you can self-host and DIY without loosing out on any functionality.

Thanks Doug! I was actually wanting to reach out.

Bob, let's chat if you're up for it...

@mayel Yes! Thanks! I have been having trouble connecting with @forgefed or @bill_auger or @fr33domlover recently though, to make sure work is coordinated. As some things are still missing from ForgeFed that are needed.


@cj @TheMainOne @fr33domlover @bill_auger @forgefed

Also I wonder if the likes of @codeberg and #NotABug would be able to participate and/or support the effort, as they seem to be maintaining their own forks.
@cj @TheMainOne @fr33domlover @bill_auger @forgefed

OK, hope coordination can happen! It seems the spec is still WIP so there should be space for a Gitea integration to happen in parallel and participate in that process.

We revamped our "Replace #GitHub" section in our ReverseEagle Developers website!


We added more #git forges and organized the list to make it more user-friendly.

Enjoy our new revamped section!

If you want to leave GitHub due to their recent bad behavior but still need a presence there, you can absolutely do that.

What FOSS developers provide them is credibility. If you move your cool projects elsewhere and mirror them to Github with a pointer to the real repo, the message is clear: you're only on Github because you have to be.

Boycotting $BIG_COMPANY 95% of the time is almost as effective as boycotting it 100% of the time; this isn't an all-or-nothing deal.


Hey @cj wondering if you may be able to help with this?

@forgefed @TheMainOne

Finally writing another little update ^_^

Opening and closing tickets is implemented. Submitting patches / merge requests too.

Now implementing updates to MRs and merging MRs. Then updating the spec.

Huge thanks to @NGIZero for the funding!

I hope we can make a patch/MR federation demo sometime soon.


A reminder to all creative people:

If the RIAA's recent actions have reminded us of anything, it's that you cannot guarantee you have a copy of any of your work unless you have backups of it on your own system.

The 'cloud' is someone else's computer, and there is ample evidence that the someone else who owns that computer does not care at all about the hours of passion you've poured into things you make.

Act accordingly.

I don’t understand why white people don’t make slippers and shoes and boots with removable, washable, replaceable liners.

Native Americans figured that shit out in moccasins thousands of years ago.

Why haven't "buying clubs" become more common with internet?

For example, 100 cat owners could join together, approach different cat food providers and bargain a discount through joint-purchasing.

My guess is that the venture capital model makes us only think in terms of what works as a capitalist firm.

Ventures like buying clubs make more sense as or mutuals. The largest hardware store chain (Ace Hardware) and carpet flooring firm (CCA Global) in the US are both purchasing coops.

Thanks to @debian for their $10,000 contribution to the #roadmap to #PeerTube v3! <3 <3 <3

With this great recognition from the Debian Project, the €60,000 to fund live in PeerTube are almost reached. To contribute: joinpeertube.org/roadmap/

@dajbelshaw this may be interesting to @karen who's been thinking about a federated professional network
