It is the first step a project can make to declare that all under represented groups are welcome. And it is specially important when they are still in their bootstrap phase.
Which is it?
Do you have one hour to spare to improve linguistic diversity on Monday October 18th, 2021 at 10:30am UTC+2 Paris/Berlin? Your participation to a videoconference will make a difference!
The @fedeproxy #forge #federation project is running its first monthly conference with simultaneous translation from French 🇫🇷 to English 🇬🇧 . If it works out, it will likely be extended to Chinese 🇨🇳. Please help 🙏
Maybe you can split some part off of the core of activities into a new project.
NGI0 --> Federated Gitea
DAPSI --> Extending, productizing federation, future roadmap prep
With a research component, UX study, ForgeFed v1.x, other vocabs, FedeProxy interop.
"How does federation support revolutionize what we can offer in terms of Unified Software Development paradigm?"
@humanetech @sl007 @sum
looking at DAPSI application, it has the following warning: "By ticking this box, I confirm the applicant(s) has not received funding for a similar project and that the applicant(s) has enough Operational Capacity to carry out the work. In addition, the applicant(s) gives consent to DAPSI consortium to share the needed information with other NGI RIAs projects for the only purpose of cross-check that there is not double funding or operational capacity conflict."
I consider this one of the most important developments on the #Fediverse and a huge opportunity for #Gitea (and other forges to follow) to distinguish themselves from walled garden platforms in unique ways.
Hereby also calling out to all fedizens to imagine how to become part of a new #foss ecosystem that opens up. It goes way beyond the planned MVP implementation, and a new paradigm is within our grasp.
Some inspiration here on #SocialHub
Today also (coincidentally) happened to be the day of the submission of the NLnet grant application for work on federation.
These are indeed very exciting times, and we are very proud and thankful of the community surrounding Gitea.
@gitea has joined fediverse. They are in the planning phase of adding federation to Gitea. Does this mean we will be able to file issues, pull-requests and follow repositories in other Gitea instances? We will see.
گیتی به فدیورس پیوست. در توییتر نوشتهاند که میخواهند فدریشن را به گیتی بیاورند. آیا این به این معنی خواهد بود که توسعهدهندگان امکان فایل کردن issue، ارسال pull request و فالو کردن رپوزیتوری در سایر اینستانسهای گیتی را در آینده خواهند داشت؟ به زودی خواهیم دید.
@cinebox We are applying for a grant to be able to implement federation. Some beginning work prior to the grant has also been sponsored by @fedeproxy to have some foundational components ready if we are accepted by the grant. (Big shoutout to fedeproxy team for championing this grant writing process)
> hypothetical federated git platform
In the context of @fedeproxy #forge #federation , I'm looking into the idea of having simultaneous translation during the monthly meetings in order to address the language barrier. It would improve the #diversity of participants.
Any suggestions on where to find freelance simultaneous translation services? Boost appreciated!
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
