I understand that many #foss projects have been locked in #github as a result of a choice made in the past.

However, it makes little sense to me to see new, interesting #foss projects to opt for #github while there are less unethical code hosting platforms out there.

@dimitrisk @rysiek for me, it's discoverability: I use shitty GH code search a lot. I think I'd get a lot less contributors in a private Gitea instance. I hope that these impediments will be solved in the future.

I actually pulled my code off of GitHub (and archived it there) since I got no contribution whatsoever.

Not surprisingly when you consider that the median number of maintainers is 1.

Working across different Gitea instances is an interesting subject.
I was wondering whether WebMention or so could be used for the communication part.

Or we go back to classical mailing lists with all their downsides.

Want to do a small audio message about it?... 

@dachary @RyunoKi @astro @dimitrisk @rysiek Hey all, Happy to do a small audio message about it (I do all the work, run it by you first as usual)

More examples here (all personal chats, relaxed no big thing in 20mins and you get audio)
