  7. <h1>FSFE provides Git hosting for its supporters</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">Sharing one's knowledge is a core principle in the Free Software
  9. society, collaboration is another. From today, the FSFE provides its <a
  10. href="/join?ref-git">supporters</a> and registered <a href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/KnowHow/FSFELife/VolunteerAccountCreation">volunteers</a> a
  11. platform to create and manage Git repositories with a comfortable user
  12. interface: <a href="https://git.fsfe.org">git.fsfe.org</a>.</p>
  13. <p>Git is not only a tool to store files but the most popular version
  14. control system, similar to SVN. While Git is a command line server and
  15. client, there are several graphical implementations. The FSFE is using <a
  16. href="https://gitea.io">Gitea</a> as a web interface.</p>
  17. <h2>Features</h2>
  18. <p>With <a href="https://git.fsfe.org">git.fsfe.org</a>, the FSFE allows
  19. its supporters to share and collaborate on a platform while fully
  20. respecting their freedoms. Using the graphical web interface, people
  21. can open issue reports for bugs or feature requests. This way, users
  22. are able to:</p>
  23. <ul>
  24. <li>host code they are using for their FSFE activities (and of course
  25. other purposes)</li>
  26. <li>share minutes and other documents of FSFE group meetings</li>
  27. <li>collaborate on flyers, presentations or business cards</li>
  28. <li>leave feedback on and help improving existing software by other
  29. users of git.fsfe.org</li>
  30. <li>...and many more!</li>
  31. </ul>
  32. <p>The FSFE also strives to migrate as much code and relevant files as
  33. possible to this new platform, for example future website developments,
  34. promotion material, and helpful scripts for the organisation's
  35. day-to-day work.</p>
  36. <h2>About Gitea</h2>
  37. <p>Gitea is a performant and user-friendly Git service that is
  38. published under a Free Software license. Unlike other services there is
  39. no proprietary enterprise version ("open-core"), but has a strong focus
  40. on community development, and already contains almost all features
  41. people know from other Git services without any non-free dependencies.
  42. There are already efforts taking place to interconnect Gitea
  43. installations to enable federation of Git repositories.</p>
  44. <p>We would like to welcome you to log in with your FSFE Fellowship
  45. credentials, test and use the service, and <a href="/contact">leave
  46. some feedback</a>. You can also push this new service by improving
  47. and adding usage guides for Git beginners on our <a
  48. href="https://wiki.fsfe.org/TechDocs/Git">dedicated wiki pages</a> – help us
  49. helping! Also, consider contributing to the Gitea project.</p>
