So... sourcehut actually looks really... good? Has anyone run it?

sourcehut.org/

Also unlike almost everything else out there, it looks maybe sane enough that it could be packaged for Debian and Guix. Even a conversation about it here: lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht-di

@cwebber Can confirm that it's nicely packageable, I tried doing it for gentoo a while ago and it was pretty nice.
Would definitely use it for a community. (I prefer much stricter software for stuff I self-host, pleroma is quite an exception so far)

@cwebber some people are kinda pissed that it uses email, otherwise it's a pretty darn good system

@ben @cwebber yeah a few people run third-party instances

@cwebber sircmpwn (drew dw) is on the fediverse pretty regularly. You can just ask him.

I should really try putting a project on there. I have an account and it does look well designed. Currently I have newer stuff on gitlab, and older stuff on github.

@cwebber I don't have experience running an instance, but from a user's perspective I love it. This is where I was hosting my feature branch for the work on Guix this summer

@cwebber totally made by sircmpwn who is a prolific open source contributor.

sircmpwn.com mastodon instance is also suspended by many for him being racist, harrassing people, etc.etc.

Ask around if you want receipt

@cwebber I mean it looks like good software.
Maybe it just needs someone to fork it and give it a better community
