Thanks, that is an interesting read. Looking through those docs, it seems the investigation was done in a “forge-agnostic” way? I really appreciate that, given that there still appear to be roadblocks for using GitLab.

Speaking for myself - if we need to move away from pagure due to its maintenance status, I would really like us to move to another fully open source forge, like forgejo. It appears that Alma Linux is using Gitea as their dist-git backend, so using forgejo (a Gitea soft fork) should be possible, right? :sweat_smile:

yeah, the idea was to at least identify our integration points and
possibly make them more agnostic to make moving to really anything
easier.

Yeah, this is likely a discussion for early next year.

I personally find forgejo pretty interesting…
