Merging/divergence from Gogs


#1

Let me repeat a question that stayed unanswered in the comments of the Gitea welcome blog entry:

How do you deal with Gogs changes since the fork? Do you review and merge them?

(P.S. I found out about Gitea by the FSFE now using it.)


#2

Most of the time, no. Sometimes we cherry-pick small bugfixes, but most of the time, we are separate.


#3

So the feature set probably has quite diverged already. What (besides the higher bus factor) are key advantages of Gitea nowadays?


#4

From what I can remember:

  • Faster developement
  • More active contributors
  • GPG key support
  • Notifications
  • More bugfixes
  • Better translations
  • LFS support
  • Finer permission management
  • And more that I cannot remember

#5
  • OpenID login support
  • OAuth2 login support
  • integration test- commit status
  • guthub API compatibility
