< report >So I've been looking at ways to lower the barrier to code contributions a bit (see t10746), and one of the identified improvements is a better development workflow. Github is a popular option for that, but I'm not fond of the centralisation of services that could easily be self-hosted. So I setup a Gitea instance instead.

The VNDB code is now at link

The issue tracker will be used for technical discussion on bugs and features. If you have an idea for a feature, but aren't yet sure about the (non-technical) specifics, I encourage you to discuss it on these forums before creating an issue.

(Registration on that Gitea instance is open to anyone, so if you're in need of git hosting, don't like Github, and somehow trust me, then feel free to host your own projects on that as well.)

EDIT: I should probably add a little disclaimer here. I may not be terribly fast to reply to issues or pull requests. Expect the same kind of activity as you've seen from me on these forums. Well, hopefully a bit more, but I do have a job and such to deal with. :(Last modified on 2018-06-03 at 06:16

< report >@tw1sted: Unlikely, but I'm open to suggestions to improve it. And yes, there'll be a dark mode.

< report >@aquahorse: That will become more clear in the future, when it becomes relevant. The issues (and this Gitea thing in its entirety) are intended for discussions about technical stuff, you don't have to understand it.

@tw1sted: To add to what I said, the entire v3 thing is currently very very alpha. Everything can change, and there will be further opportunities to provide feedback when things are a bit more fleshed out.

< report >Requesting a change from to Actually, each version should run on its own subdomain, which should be the name of the VN with the corresponding vnid (so v1 =, v2 =, etc). :P

And guys, remember to use the (raw) (/raw) tags when writing v3. ;)Last modified on 2018-06-03 at 17:14

< report >#1 It's always nice to have more Github alternatives given how centralized it is and how they're now owned by MS.

One advice I do recommend is make a good intro? wiki page. It might even just be a how to use this as well. Most of the setup stuff can be moved into Wiki, as another entry, and the README could be the intro if you wanted to make the README a lot cleaner.

< report >@15: What would you put in this intro? There is a d8, which kind of serves that purpose.
