If you're on the Fediverse and you want to host code for libre software and other collaborative projects, you might want to check out @gitea:


It's free, open source and it's currently in process of adding Fediverse compatibility through ActivityPub, the same standard that Mastodon etc use to communicate with each other.

You can see some of the Gitea instances that already have experimental Fediverse connections listed at fedidb.org/software/gitea

If you're just looking for a Gitea instance to join, there's @codeberg at codeberg.org

To see the current state of federated forges, have a look at the @forgefriends blog post at forgefriends.org/blog/2022/06/

> currently in process of adding Fediverse compatibility through ActivityPub

There has been talk about this for a couple of years now. Any updates on progress? Particularly a timeline for when it might be available for use?

@gitea @codeberg @forgefriends

@strypey been a while since I have seen you over here! there is a lot of progress on this front. you can look up a gitea profile with webfinger now and that part has been merged into main

Ae, I've been online in general much less since getting back from China. Great news that Gitea is supporting Webfinger. Looking forward to seeing support for AP itself 😁
