sr.ht, the hacker's forge, now open for public alpha
@sir I think FAQ and pricing pages should be available without signing up. (Or maybe they are? But it's hard to find them at first glance,then.)
Also kudos for Arch and Alpine packages, it's so rare to see any web service at least designed to be packaged properly.
@barthalion you're right that I should make pricing details available before you sign up, though
@sir congratulations on the milestone!
@flxy right now #1 is deliberate. I'm trying to tone down the social features to focus on the engineering. I might change my mind at some point, though. Maybe worth starting a discussion, send an email ~firstname.lastname@example.org?
#2: maybe! Open a ticket here: https://todo.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/meta.sr.ht. At the moment you can just skip the payment and you'
ll still have access to all features. Also, if Patreon works for you, lots of people support me there: https://patreon.com/sircmpwn
@flxy thank you! 🎉
@sir made an account. :) Will give it a try over the w/e.
@mariusor great :) looking forward to your feedback
@sir I'm working to push a small misspell commit...
@mariusor sweet, much appreciated
@sir erm... somebody hugged it to death. :)
@mariusor what's hugged to death? Everything seems fine to me...
@sir now working. I tried creating a git repository for meta.sr.ht and it died and then was returning 502 when accessing git.sr.ht urls.
@mariusor can you try again? there was an OOM issue, but it's unrelated to the traffic
@anarcat thanks for the tip, this is a known and high priority issue. Keep refreshing and it'll work
@sir damn, I forgot you're a proponent for mail patches rather than Fork - PR. BRB reading the manual. :)
@sir already there.
And if I may, you probably should use a url which is a little less leaky with a contributor's information. :D
@mariusor this is by design, your email isn't a secret with git and it's not a secret on sr.ht
@mariusor and thanks for the patch :)
@sir yet we should make it as difficult as possible for scrapers to get emails.
@mariusor I've taken some precautions. I will be changing these URLs, but it'll still be possible to get emails out of sr.ht
@sir why not use a similar strategy as lkml does to the emails? (as I'm writing this, I saw that lkml doesn't strip the email from the patch itself... sigh)
@sir this is so heccing cool
@grainloom thanks :)
@lanodan it's quite lightweight, takes hardly no resources to host it.
@sir Congrats! Looks nice... and I'm glad to see more people hacking away against the monopoly of Github.
I'm a Mercurial guy myself however... (I might contribute if there's any desire to make sr.ht less Git specific!)
@sir amazing already trashed my GitHub private repos and moved over. Hope you can use the cash for something that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling!
@dch thank you!
