@straw @dachary Using Matrix for federation was proposed on the Gitea issue tracker (, but the consensus now is that Gitea will be using ActivityPub and ForgeFed instead of federation, and development has been ongoing for three months now to implement ActivityPub in Gitea.

Plus, as much as I like Matrix, it has severe performance issues and wouldn't be a good fit anyways for Gitea federation.

@straw @dachary Yeah, Dendrite/Conduit are supposed to fix Matrix's current performance issues, but they've been saying Dendrite is almost ready for four years now 🤷

@ta180m That's a pretty weird idea actually. How would Matrix work exactly with git?

@dreamLogic The proposal was to use Matrix for federating issues and comments, which sounds possible but kind of complex because Matrix is just an insanely complex beast.

@blub @dachary @gitea @forgefriends ForgeFed is a federation protocol for code hosting software, and Gitea is currently working on implementing the ForgeFed protocol.

That'd be a great move toward open collaboration.
