    Gita?... Never heard about that unless you meant Gitea

    Also, what about Gitea? It is the most GitHub-like option.

      Yeah, Gitea. Of Gitea they said:

      Gitea
      • Pros:
        • LibreJS is partially supported, does not look hard to add full support.
        • Someone else runs an instance open to free software: https://codeberg.org/
      • Cons:
        • Poor usability with no js from site (gnu criteria A): Can't make pull request. Can't attach file to issue. Can't create ssh key in user settings. Can't delete repo. Would need to add that functionality in plain html when no js is run.
        • No user import / export of issues and merge requests. https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/1446
        • Upstream hosted on GitHub which requires running nonfree JS for signup, https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/9303, but they seem to be very close (within a few weeks/months) to self hosting
      • Needs more research:
        • Resource requirements / performance under load
        • How featureful are is are administration interface/tools (GUI or CLI)
        • Ease of deployment, upgrading, debugging.
        • Finer points of GNU ethical repo criteria
        • import/export of data

              Why not rather game of forks and branches?

                Sourcehut is super cool, and I think it meshes well with FSF's community.

                  Malware is usually quite small.

                    Seconded. I want to see their evaluation of Sourcehut.

                    Edit: Oh, they did link to their evaluation page, sorry: https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Fsf_2019_forge_evaluation
