I'm all for decentralising code hosting, but we desperately need some federation between instances...

Having to create a new user account on all code hosting servers out there to submit issues and code improvements just isn't future-proof.

My list of GitLab and Gitea accounts all over the place is becoming ridiculous ๐Ÿ˜•

@noplanman This becomes especially disturbing if you need a account even only to look at the repository, issues, etc. Which I see quite often. No, I don't want to create a account everywhere just to have a quick look at the code, see if a bug/feature request was already submitted, etc.

@noplanman I think the gitea maintainer is aware of go-fed and just needs ForgeFed to mature as a spec.


Sweet, thanks for letting me know.
I think this will be a huge game-changer in the distributed world of code, because as @bjoern mentioned, to have to create an account on every instance just adds a hurdle and discourages participation.

(sending beams of gratitude into the *verse to having distributed coding soon ๐Ÿ’•)
