But how can can users create issues or participate in development, when the registration is closed? How can gitea even be used for spam? I am confused. I thought this is the place for future development of Friendica...
Create repositories with README.md files with the content you want to have displayed. Just like using other peoples wiki installations to display your content. This happened a lot already in the past before we closed the registration.
Once we use it, registration could be set to "requires approval by the admin" or admins just kick out malicious accounts which are discovered as admins will use the system as well on a daily basis. For now, this limits the additional work load. Also there are federated possibilites (for later usage) with gitea (OAuth and FedForge or how it was named).
@Marco R. aha, I see the problem now. So you had for friendiqua the problem that somebody wanted to create an issue or so. Then the reopening of the registrations just went some steps ahead on the todo list 😉
As the CI integration is struggling, the move of Friendica to the self-hosted repo was slown down and that registration point went doen on the priority with it.
