Our #foss project team is *very* motivated to do the right thing, and we need your input and help 🙏
1st question: What's your preferred forge?
@mauro, #SourceHut is amazingly convenient. It's CI/CD service is the number one coolest thing in the ecosystem I've seen so far! Whilst I moved all of my personal projects to sr.ht, some software I contribute to are still on GitHub and I contantly bug the maintainers to use builds.sr.ht as the/an additional CI (sometimes it works, e.g. for #Trio). SSH'ing into build machines, independant jobs and native images for most common distros are so overlooked.
Zap account migration options
I love to be on @codeberg and they have a great interaction with Gitea project.. some members in the dev team.
Very nice is that #codeberg - already having Codeberg Pages - is planning on adding custom domain support (something I'm really waiting for.. will get me off gh-pages):
