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.

After reading this tutorial about how to mirror a Gitea repository to other Git hosting services like GitHub, I decided to follow a new strategy regarding my projects. I will use my main Gitea instance for all my public repositories and then mirror them on Codeberg and GitHub. I will also migrate projects from GitHub and Codeberg to my Gitea instance and replace the repos with mirrors. The first repo is this one with a mirror on Codeberg and a second mirror on GitHub.

This method gives me full control over my projects and I can create new mirrors or remove old mirrors at any time and I am not dependent on any service.

Joining Codeberg

Published on in 💬 Micro

I just joined the Codeberg e.V. as an active member.

The mission of the Codeberg e.V. is to build and maintain a free collaboration platform for researching, creating, archiving, and preserving knowledge, code, and to document its development process.

I really like Codeberg and its mission and use the platform for some of my projects. Today, a fellow student / colleague asked me a few questions about it, then joined himself. That inspired me to actually join now too, instead of sometime in the future.

More Information about Codeberg on their website or blog. Joining is possible here.
