Just heard about it. Adding this note to check back later and research who is backing it, etc. Looks worthwhile.
Digital public goods (DPG) that caught my eye:
Gitea is great. So is Codeberg. The ability to share repos, issues, and users across Gitea instances, would be awesome.
Git itself is already federated and decentralised, but there is still a need for federation of the remote repo and its facilities.
The idea of some sort of federation between Gitea instances has been around since 2016.
