If I move pixelfed from github, it will be to a federated git host. I spent a few hours working on this old project 😉

This has been a really fun project, can't wait to finish pixelfed and move on to this one.

@dansup I didn't know there was such thing as a federated git host but I'm not surprised and pleased!

@tomiscw There isn't yet, but I will make one for pixelfed.

@dansup @tomiscw Depending on the language you use for it, I would love to help!

@dansup are you implementing #gitpub? I've read about it a while ago and lost track on subject lately

@alexcleac no, they have no implementation just an empty repo.

@dansup too sad :( So you are building your own protocol based on ActivityPub, am I right?

@dansup @alexcleac
forgefed has some specification draft on a draft branch

@dansup It would be nice to think on a generalized protocol, to allow teamwork of ticketing systems as #redmine, #mantisbt, #trac, #gitlab, ... 🤝

Like @m4sk1n mentioned is a project that's been being worked on since the Github acquisition by Microsoft.

All the content isn't in the github repo its in the mailing list which is open to join but I think they made it like this cause there were too many people spamming the issues in Github since it made the front of Hacker News a few times...

@jdormit git is yes, but issues/pull requests and the social aspects of a git host are not. That is where ActivityPub can fill the gaps

@dansup I think pixelfed wouldn't never be really finished or?

@jr That is true, I would like to have other contributors to pass it on to.

@dansup is that code anywhere? Would love to take a peek.

@dansup wait this is your own project? why not consider waiting until gitea gets support?

@jalcine Yeah, this is older than pixelfed. No other solution takes ActivityPub seriously and I want to host my projects on something that does.
