[$] A new free-software forge: sr.ht

Tuesday January 8, 2019. 11:09 PM , from LWN.net
Many projects have adopted the 'GitHub style' of development over the last
few years, though, of course, there are some high-profile exceptions that
still use patches and mailing lists. Many projects are leery of putting
all of their project metadata into a proprietary service, with limited
means of usefully retrieving it should that be necessary, which is why
GitLab (which is at least 'open core') has been gaining some traction. A recently announced
effort looks to kind of bridge the gap; Drew DeVault's sr.ht ('the hacker's forge')
combines elements of
both styles of development in a '100% free and open source software
forge'. It looks to be an ambitious project, but it
may also suffer from a lack of 'social network' effects, which is part of
what sustains GitHub as the forge of choice today, it seems.
