Issue asking for ActivityPub support in GitLab
Okay come on, *everyone* must want this
Thanks to @ted for filing it :)
I left a comment explaining why GitLab could be improved by an order of magnitude or so by having federations support https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/44486#note_65901018
@cwebber I agree 100%.
I've suggested the same thing often. It's a nonsense for me to have a hundred of accounts to help people in separated servers and all that...
Why don't we make a fork of Gitea or something and we put ActivityPub on top of it?
That would be great for everyone.
I think its important to make public/private distinction.
I use Github for stuff that is open (or about to be made public)
I use my gitlab for stuff I dont want to share with the world.
As an academic I am zig zagging the lines between open source and trade secret. I don't want to lose my trade secrets by accident.
I guess this issue comes up all the time in federation. Example Mastodon. I want to share some toots, but I want my usage data private.
But thats a problem you have in separated servers too.
You can configure stuff incorrectly and make it public by accident at the moment.
Federation doesn't change that in any means, it's just a way to make a server more global but it doesn't force you to share anything.
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
