would anyone be interested in a gitea instance for I've been running one for myself for awhile, but it's kinda overkill for one person. it'd be super quick to spin up another instance and gitea is super lightweight, so I'd be happy to host it for everyone if someone (@mayel?) can point my way

I really need to participate in the governance of more. There's so much going on that it seems overwhelming at times, but I joined this instance because I wanted to be part of one that I could have a stake and a vote in, and quite frankly I'm disappointed in myself for not having participated much in the governance.

But, it's not too late for me to change that.

the single most important criteria when replacing Github

Consider all the data that's used to provide the value-added features on top of git. Issue tracking, wikis, notes in commits, lists of forks, pull requests, access controls, hooks, other configuration, etc.

Is that data stored in a git repository?


I put version control hosting + activitypub (read: federated github-alternative) on tomorrow's socialcg agenda

Some people have started working on #"GitPub is a protocol based on the W3C's , which extends 2.0. It provides a server to server API for pull request, and subscription of repositories provided by web services." (yes, can't beleive even this is still on f-ing !)


You know, mobile operating systems are an incredibly clever move on behalf of intermediaries who are afraid of an open and community-managed web.

Standards-based organizations like the W3C are (if I understand correctly) overwhelmingly dominated by business interests already, but even *that* is to inconvenient for Apple, Microsoft, and Google right now.

Instead, they're each working to build walled gardens with faster-paced development at the expense of 100% vendor lock-in.

ICYMI: Freedombone is a home server system that enables you to **easily** self-host a variety of free software applications.
It's awesome that the Freedombone supports Gogs, the web based management tool.
A great alternative for many people who aren't heavy git users and want to use a completely decentralised and lightweight system.

Here's how to use Gogs on Freedombone

Questions? Just ask @bob

If you are working for a firm in another country and if they pay you according to your country's salary range, how is that when I am doing the same as the people in the other country my firm is located in?

I am LOVING all the conversations I'm seeing in my tl about selfhosting all different kinds of things and how to democratically govern online communities and software projects 😍😍😍😍😍

Everyone wants magic.

But hardly anyone wants to pay for the infrastructure that makes magic happen.

@mayel @paws +1 to not working full-time for one employer. I do four days, and would ideally do three. As Mayel says, there's nothing like the autonomy and freedom of being independent (apart from, perhaps, being part of a co-op, which I also am...)

of course, it would be awesome if the news was about github becoming a cooperative πŸ€” πŸ˜€

Following up on the fiasco, maybe on top of only using software, and federating as much as possible along , what we really need is agent-centric naming and system (also to allow for nomadic identity for and the fediverse).

I wonder if we could use something similar to IPNS (in the project)?

Or maybe simply

Oh you know, searching through 20 years of CSS, JavaScript, HTML and source code for hard coded http URLs.

Brutal and green.

Still gotta work on this plan for turning the Barbican into a permanent autonomous zone.

Had a lot of fun recently participating in a "design week" at the co-op in London. It was pretty intense but definitely the best way to spend my first days working with as Technical Architect on the project. The workshops were made all the more interesting and educational by being run using (a consent-based non-hierarchical decisionmaking process):

FOSS & smashing capitalism; two great tastes that taste great together!

Show more is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
