#1612 discusses Federation in general but I wanted to open an issue for the ActivityPub + ForgeFed solution specifically and concretize this unit of work. Let's keep to discussing ActivityP...

An opportunity for Golang devs to work on a great FOSS project with funding: Bringing Gitea to the Fediverse with ActivityPub support and the ForgeFed protocol…

If this were done, I’d 100% be in favor of moving lemmy’s issue tracking to gitea.

As of now this project is underway. There’s a grant application (long thread) and some open issues / PR’s in the works already. Details are on the FedeProxy forum.

Imagine users being able to report issues straight from lemmy with the very same lemmy accounts 😍

That would be great! Gitea themself is also planning for a long while to dogfood gitea for their own development. I think this move away from github should happen one of these days.

This would be a really nice way to get projects to finally move off of github. But imo they have to finally add a proper access control system to make this usable.

This acceleration on the open ActivityPub implementation in Gitea is thanks to the folks at FedeProxy who set apart the funds. FedeProxy will take the possibilities of Forge federation well beyond this still. I encourage to follow them, and read on their forum what’s cooking.

You could donate to https://opencollective.com/gitea but there is no way to earmark a donation for a specific purpose. Or you could donate to https://liberapay.com/fedeproxy/ and earmark the donation for the implementation of federation in Gitea (expenses can be audited later on).

That’s great. I was going to provide you all the places I know about that would be helpful. But I have to ask first on FedeProxy forum: https://forum.fedeproxy.eu/t/advancing-federation-in-gitea/240/7

Social Media Reimagined

This is a companion to Fediverse Futures on SocialHub to elaborate the Fediverse from high-level, non-technical perspectives, brainstorming our visions and dreams.

We need a more holistic approach to fedi development and evolution. We need product designers, graphics artists, UX / UI / Interaction designers, futurists and visionaries to join the dev folks. Everyone is encouraged to join here and enrich our views on what Fediverse can be with diverse and different viewpoints, and to stimulate brainstorming, creativity, thinking out-of-the-box and crazy, wild ideas.

Some guidelines

  • Choose a descriptive title that speaks for itself.
  • Be substantive in your comments and stay on-topic.
  • Treat others as you want to be treated, respectful.
  • Don’t be overly critical, we are just brainstorming.
