ForgeFed: federating Git services

ForgeFed (formerly GitPub) is a decentralized federation protocol based on the W3C's ActivityPub, which extends ActivityStream 2.0. It provides a server to server API for pull request, forking and subscription of repositories provided by Git web services (services like GitHub, GitLab, Gogs, Gitea).


A specification like this must be agreed upon by at least some of Git web service implementations. If you are a developer of such a software, please join our discussion and speak up. We'll simply add you to the work group.

If you are experienced in writing specifications, you're also welcome to join the effort.

Mailing List

We're still waiting for all the tentative work group members to join the mailing list.

All major discussion and decision making will happen in our Framalistes mailing list. Non-members may use the GitHub issue tracker or send us a mail at: We can not guarantee to read all mail or GitHub comments; but we will try.
