    It’s obviously better than GitHub. But between Gogs and Gitea, I think Gogs has more than enough features and using Gogs, you trust 1 person, whereas with Gitea, responsibility lies nowhere. Also, in such community projects, people never remove code, they just keep adding code which is a disaster!

    I personally like cgit and stagit more than above 2 but Gogs lies at appropriate junction between ease of use, UX and features.

      Yeah, there’s pros and cons to both approaches. Gitea team is very active and responsive, and I personally like a community approach to a BDFL project. I had some self-hosted Gitea’s, but nowadays I use Codeberg mostly. They are a Gitea instance and actively contributing to the project (one Codeberg member is a core team participant in Gitea). They have added cool features such as Codeberg Pages and soon Codeberg CI (based on Woodpecker CI integration, the FOSS fork of drone.io).

      I guess that with Gitea and Forgefriends adding federation support, and this being implemented in Golang, it will be easy for Gogs to adopt that too, and then the choice of code forge wouldn’t matter all that much anymore. Choice would be fully up to personal preference.

        Moving off GitHub is cool. They should do that definitely! I take immense interest in computer security and would trade such extra features easily for minimalism! People could easily learn using just those features! But yes, I get your point.
