POLL: Would a FGD git repository be of use for you?

Would a web-based git repository hosted by FGD be of use to you?

No, I am using Github (or other existing) and would not use it at all.

Not really, but I might set up a simple code mirror

Not for my code, but a separate issue tracker and/or wiki for a project might be interesting

Yes, as a smaller project repository only for open-source games seems useful

Yes, as using only FOSS software is important to me (and Gitlab isn't to my liking)

You can now use your Github or Gitlab account to login (and register) on our Gitea.

I'll also add an option to login with your FGD Mattermost account once I have fixed an issue with it. Maybe also Hubzilla if I can get it to work.

Any requests for other OAuth2/OpenID Connect supporting services?

Sorry for the outage of the service yesterday. Somehow my Redis setup is acting up since a update, so for now the chaching is disabled. Might be a bit slower as a result until I have found the problem.

FYI, I created a repo just to mess around with gitea and maybe host a thing there permanently. Don't go looking for it though, it's really not interesting. XD

Do you plan to link all FGD accounts together? I.E. same account to log into forums/git/social/etc, only need to login/signup once. I understand that would be a bit of work (probably understated) to get it working like that.

Maybe this is a different discussion, but a thing that has really annoyed me with Git Repo services like github etc is that the wiki cannot be served out of the repository. It's just markdown anyway and whats the point of documentation if you don't keep it with the code. You end up either doubling up your documentation or using one of those annoying sub-repo things that require extra steps to pull down correctly and is linked to the repo that stores the wiki.

I sort of link the accounts together already, just not through LDAP or such, but rather optional via OpenID Connect. It is just that I am waiting for Gitea to add support for custom OAuth2 connections which is AFAIK planned really soon. I just can't link it to the these forums as they are on a completely different server not under my administration.

Regarding the wiki... in gitea you can link to any external source with the wiki tab. So I guess you could have a nice external bookstack page or also link to a markdown file within the repo. Same for the issue tracker.

I didn't know Gitea could do that. Way past cool.

Yeah, I'm waiting for integration as well. Mattermost is alright. I've refrained from using the various FGD social apps because I used Diaspora in the past and mostly just encountered pizza-faced neckbeards, and not even the kind that can program, just the idiot know-nothing graphic designers and hipsters from Brazil. But I digress.

Myself, I use GitHub, and it's fine for all my needs.

If you did start your own Git repository, it you could (to allow unlimited space to each and every user) use a FGD GitHub repo to host all repositories -- in other words, store all repositories in a subfolder of a master FGD repository hosted on GitHub. I don't know if it's legal, but it's worth looking into.

Interesting idea, but that one repo could get pretty big. Also, does Git support that kind of hierarchy? You would be interleaving Git commands from different projects. I don't know enough about Git to know if this is possible.

Please let GitHub die. GitHub is cancer.

I mean somebody had to say it, right?
I'm tired.

People have said it before, and then they switched to GitLab because it was the low-hanging fruit. Websites come and go. Some of them are more long-lived than others.

I don't know why anyone would dislike GitHub, it's free and does what I need it to do.

We don't need another argument about github. Lyberta and others disagree with policies of github or features of git. Search the history of their posts for more information.

I understand, thanks for pointing that out. I just did a quick search, and I found out about GNU Savannah (which I've never heard of before) and it looks really promising. I'd love to support the opensource community, and I'll transition to that for my repositories.
