Federated code hosting
Are you interested in #federated
hosting? This term means a site like #GitHub
- but instead of all servers being an individual part of the #web
, they talk to each other just like servers in the #fediverse
. Imagine being able to open issues, make pull requests and engage in discussion, to any other repository from your own personal code hosting server?
Approximately one year ago #Microsoft
bought GitHub, kicking of
something that become a group of people discussing formalizing a specification for federated code hosting platforms. This specification work ended up with the name #ForgeFed
and is currently developed by the #Peers community
. The end result will be a set of extensions on top of #ActivityPub
that allows any code hosting platform to federate with any other code hosting platform.
ForgeFed is using the brand new #Feneas
forum for discussing various spec items. Everybody is welcome to participate, though especially good would be to get people from the various code hosting platforms to give their thoughts about what they would be happy to implement.

The ForgeFed repository for the specification is hosted at notabug
