    I have not bothered signing up at Github with some “anonymous” email address

    Yeah github sucks. Would be really cool if there was a less involved way to submit bug reports and patches.

      Do you have any suggestion how to make it easier? We dont want to have issues in two different places because it would be complicated. The main alternatives I can think of are my Gitea instance (yerbamate.ml) or gitlab.com.

        codeberg.org is another good gitea instance to look at - it’s specifically aimed at FOSS software.

          We do backup to there as well, but use github for issues.

        I never found a good solution myself, I guess a central bugtracker where guests can post would be the easiest, but most standalone bugtrackers aren’t that good and having pull&review requests in the same place is pretty nice. For (very specialized) personal/friends projects I run a gitea instance with some oauth options enabled. (but iirc that still requires an email)

        We dont want to have issues in two different places because it would be complicated.

        I guess you could post the gitea issues to github/gitlab via a webhook but properly syncing comments would then require a more complicated bot.

        Would gitlab.com be a compromise?

        It’s better but it still requires an account and an email address. I usually go through the trouble of creating throwaway accounts if I think I have something important to contribute but it’s not optimal. (Idk how many people actually care though, might be something for a community poll)

        Maybe you could build a bot that creates issues from lemmy.ml threads in a bugtracker community if they are tagged in a certain way. Lemmy doesn’t require an email address and I’d guess most devs have an account at lemmy.ml or a federated instance.

          We could make a Lemmy instance for issues, with a different theme/frontend. Except we dont have time to maintain another project, so someone else would have to do that.
