A few weeks ago, it came to light that Gitea has been owned by a for-profit Gitea Ltd. for several months. The lack of transparency has disturbed the trust of many contributors and users. That’s why Codeberg (a German based non-profit association - disclaimer: I am a member of the association) has now started a soft fork: Forgejo.
Let’s see how the story develops further. In any case, it is very commendable that Forgejo itself uses Codeberg, Woodpecker CI and Matrix and thus is based only on free and open source software.
