Proposal to setup a monthly report and meeting about forge federation starting January 2022

Bonjour,

The https://forgefriends.org project is about creating bridges between software forges. Monthly updates were published since the beginning of the project and a videoconference also happens a few days later for developers and any interested person to discuss and share ideas.

The Gitea community is also interested in creating federated forges and this led to a few areas where both forgefriends and Gitea worked together (on code, discussions and fundraising).

Since this cooperation is likely to increase in 2022, I’d like to propose that the monthly update on forge federation includes both forgefriends and Gitea. I’m happy to keep doing the legwork (figuring out a date, announcing the meeting, writing the report etc.): that would not require any additional work from other Gitea community members.

Last but not least, the meetings are currently benefiting from simultaneous translation from French to English, which helps non-native English speakers and increases the linguistic diversity. Next month meeting will also include Chinese to English simultaneous translation and an announce was made in the Chinese support section of the forum in the hope that it will be more inviting. @lunny I’d be most grateful if you could proofread my post, it may not be very good :sweat:

What do you think?
