It would be useful to have an export format for Gitea, similar to what GitLab has. It could be used to import projects in other Gitea instances, as an alternative to migrating from an existing Gitea instance via the API.
The GitLab export format would be a good starting point but it is not documented which makes it unsuitable for anything but exchanging data between GitLab instances.
It would make sense for fedeproxy and Gitea to share the effort to develop that format and I’m intend to work on this in the coming months. Unless someone think it is useless for some reason?
