Hey!

First, it is a great project and I am happy I just joined. I really like the idea of an independent organization that hosts code. I have some remarks though:

1.) Regarding container technologies: Is there any free and community owned production ready project?

2.) Do you have chat integrations, e.g., Riot?

3.) Do you allow for website hosting like GitHub pages?

Ahoy!

  1. not sure what you are talking about
  2. In your repo settings, you can enable various webhooks, e.g. for Matrix. See https://docs.codeberg.org/integrations/matrix/
  3. See https://Codeberg.Page

@fnetX, thank you for your reply.

1.) The only container software I know is entirely (owned or solely) supported by large corporations. It is somewhat scary that also Docker is a for-profit organization. I was not so concerned about this until recently, when companies started to exercise their "right". From my perspective, there is a need for something like Codeberg for containers. What do you think?

2.) Thanks, nice to know :)

3.) Very cool! :)

1.) well with next version gitea do have registry function, so it would be posible.

For codeberg we still have to considder if it's feasable to enable it or if we dont have enouth space atm.

beside of that I'm aware of quay.io but do not know mouch about it

@6543, quay.io seems to be a good starting point.
Could you elaborate on what you mean with space? When do you guys meet actually? Sorry, I am trying to find my way around, still.

*space = data storage

When do you guys meet actually?

codeberg is worldwide what do you mean? main communication (chat) is via matrix

What disk space would you need? I got an unused SSD lying around here.

I understand the main communication is via matrix. Some of you guys are in Berlin, too, so it would be nice to meet some members. Makes work more fruitful. Could also hand-in the SSD.

Hmm, while larger SSD's might indeed work for speeding up caching, offering such a service to all Codeberg users would surely require a lot of storage.

We are currently looking into distributed storage, so we need, ordered by priority:

  • experienced people with Ceph and Ansible
  • hard disks in the terabyte range (e.g. 6 x 12 TB)
  • 19-inch-rack servers with not-too-terrible-specs

Understood. It is important though (for, like the economy and thus wellbeing of the citizen) to be independent of political flavors. Thus, independent container technologies are necessary for Europe. It will boost the fame of codeberg immediately, too.

I am happy to contribute wherever I can. I just honestly do not know how (besides paying a fee to be a member).

Edit: I found the containers organization, but could not get further intel on whom they are responding to, yet. Podman seems a good alternative, though.

Still like the idea codeberg would be maintaining something similar, because it is required by law to be helpful to society.
