Forgejo is a community-driven Free Software project under the umbrella of Codeberg, a non-profit association in Germany, that develops a code forge platform similar to GitHub, and that is a drop-in replacement for Gitea.

For those wondering what the intention is. This is from their FAQ:
So will this be the beginning of the end of gitea?
how is the name pronounced?
Forgejo (/forˈd͡ʒe.jo/ – inspired by forĝejo, the Esperanto word for forge)
I don’t speak Esperanto :-)
i did see that but i have no idea how to make sense of those runes
For as in “for”, Ge as in “Giraffe” or “Jeep” and jo as in “use” (/juːs/ the o sounds like a normal o, and in use you have the j sound and then a u sound, it would be only the j sound which is equivalent to an i sound).
The r in for sounds like a soft R in Spanish or Russian, but you can massacre that pronunciation anyway as every English speaker will do, words are modifiable.
Thanks a lot
I found this on tbe web, but I don’t understand that either. So take it with a pinch of salt.
There’s no live instance yet, though, right? At least I can’t find a link to any on that web site.
they have a release candidate out. my prediction is that codeberg should start using once a real release is made.
Codeberg will use Forgejo? What’s the point of Codeberg existing then? o.0
From a blog post on their website:
Codeberg website will do what it has always done. Will just use forgejo as backend instead of gitea.
Ahhh, I didn’t know Codeberg was using Gitea’s backend, I though Codeberg was its own Github alternative, is the front end also from Gitea?
yes. codeberg is a single binary and serves the frontend too. not sure if there are other frontends for it.
Codeberg was using gitea so far. Now gitea has been eated up a for profit company and the gitea trademark belongs to said company. They plan on making money by selling services for an enterprise edition like github does. I think enterprise edition code will be close sourced too in part.
So the community forked gitea and changed its name to forgejo. Forgejo trademark is owned by codeberg which is a non-profit.
Not yet. They just started, but I thought it’s interesting for the community here.
