Project dev infrastructure?

Project dev infrastructure?

Postby Julius » 16 May 2019, 18:54

With the changes in team leadership maybe it is also time to discuss the development infrastructure?

As the probably most active project here on freegamedev.net we would of course like to keep supporting you, and as we are currently piloting various services, my question would be if you are interested in some of them?

As far as I can tell you are currently using Github as the source repository, and Discord/IRC for team chat?
Then there is of course this forum and your website with blogger.com blog.

We now have a git repository on git.freegamedev.net that you could migrate or mirror the code on.

We also have a Mattermost based team chat at chat.freegamedev.net that has very nice integrations (See: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-plugin-github ) and which we can also bridge to your Discord and IRC chats (via Matterbridge). And we also have a linked XMPP / Jabber server at xmpp.freegamedev.net

In addition we have a Trello like Kanban board in testing, using Kanboard at kanboard.freegamedev.net (also features Github / Gitea and Mattermost etc integrations).

And last but not least we could open a Flarum based hosted forum at community.freegamedev.net that is a bit more modern that these forums...but we can't easily transfer user accounts sadly.

Oh and there is of course also the Mastodon & GnuSocial compatible microblogging Hubzilla installation at social.freegamedev.net

Other things in the pipeline might be a weblate or pootle based translation service.

So let me know if there is anything of these that you are interested in using, or what else we can help you with hosting :)

Hello,

We are happy enough with these forums (though it's true that they are dated in someway), but currently don't plan on changing the the infrastructure.

The burden of migration, and the additional overhead for occasional contributors, makes it not attractive. For now, despite GitHub being a proprietary platform, is serving us well.

If mirroring can be done without much burden, it could be nice.

I see no reason to abandon the IRC or the discord, but if you can bridge so messages are shared between platforms, then why not. A IRC-discord bridge was created recently.

We don't like blogger (it's hosted by google, and it's limited in many way) but if we change the blog, it would be to host this on the supertuxkart.net website directly.

Thanks for the detailed answer.

Mirroring the git is easy, but if you are not planning to use it, than no real need I guess (and our server capacity is somewhat limited).

You already have a IRC to Discord bridge? There are some nice ones for sure. The advantage of Matterbridge is mainly that it can also link to other services very easily. But for setting it up I would need some help from your side to create a bot user in Discord which can relay the messages.

The process is explained here:

If you have any other suggestions, let us know :)

:heart:
The sooner the proprietary Transifex is dumped, the better. :) So, I'm glad to hear this.
