<h2 class="text-2xl py-4">Why fork Gitea?</h2>
In October 2022 the domains and trademark of Gitea were transferred to a for-profit company without knowledge or
approval of the community. Despite <a href="">writing an open letter</a>, the takeover was later confirmed. The goal of Forgejo is to continue developing the code with a healthy
democratic governance.
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2011&quot;;"><span>Does Forgejo com</span><span style="font-family: &quot;bpg_glaho&quot;;">pete with Gitea?</span></h2>
No. Forgejo is a soft fork of Gitea, in a way that is similar to <a href="">LineageOS</a> a community led distribution based on Android from Google. It intends to reunite the Gitea community: all Gitea contributors are welcome in Forgejo and Forgejo contributor can also participate in Gitea.

<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2011&quot;;">Are migrations between Gitea and Forgejo possible?</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Nino_Medium_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;"> Yes, because for now Forgejo is a "soft fork". This means that all commits made on <a href="">Gitea</a> are also present in Forgejo. Some additional modifications are made, to improve scaling, federation and privacy. </p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Excelsior_Caps_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;"
>Where does the name comes from?
Forgejo (pronounced /ˈfor.d͡ʒ is inspired by forĝejo, the Esperanto word for forge.
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;bpg_glaho&quot;;">Using Free Software to develop Free Software</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;bpg_glaho&quot;;">
Forgejo development happens on <a href="">Codeberg</a>, which is running Gitea (waiting
for the first stable release of Forgejo) and <a href="">Woodpecker</a> (for continuous
integration). By "dogfooding" our code, we aim at being close to our user and serve them better.
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4"
>Who owns the Forgejo domains and trademarks?
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2009&quot;;">
The Forgejo domains are in the custody of
<a href="">Codeberg e.V.
</a> a non-profit based in Germany and dedicated to hosting
Free Software since 2019. It is ultimately in control of Forgejo
and its bylaws guarantee it will keep further the interest of the
general public. No trademark was registered at this point in time.</p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4"
>Is Forgejo sustainable? How is it funded?
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2011&quot;;">
Sustaining Free Software projects developed in the interest of
the general public is an ongoing challenge. Forgejo relies on a
mixture of volunteer contributions, grants, donations and employee
delegation to keep going. The details are documented transparently
<a href="">in a repository dedicated to sustainability.</a></p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Nino_Medium_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;">Is there a roadmap for Forgejo?</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;sans-serif&quot;;">
There is just one item on the roadmap: forge federation. <a href="">User research</a> is ongoing to build a roadmap that reflects actual user needs. If you are interested to participate, please <a href="">join the chat room</a>.
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Nino_Medium_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;">Who is using Forgejo?
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2009&quot;;">
<a href=""></a> will use Forgejo
starting with version 1.18.0 to host over 50,000 projects and
40,000 users. Various organizations and individuals will also
upgrade from Gitea <a href="/download/">to Forgejo</a> simply by
changing the URL from which they download releases.
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Nino_Medium_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;">What is the governance of Forgejo?</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2011&quot;;"> Forgejo is a collective of individuals who collectively and incrementally define their own governance. The first meeting happened <a href="">on October 24th, 2022</a> and everyone is welcome to participate. Codeberg e.V. does not run the day to day operations of Forgejo nor does it require the members of the project to follow its governance. It is solely responsible for ensuring the domains and trademarks are ultimately used to further the interest of the general public in accordance to its bylaws. </p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Nino_Medium_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;">Does Forgejo have a<span style="visibility: hidden;"> Code of Conduct</span>?</h2><s>
</s><p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2011&quot;;"><s style="visibility: hidden;"> Yes. The <a href="" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2009&quot;;">Code of Conduct</a> applies to all spaces that are under the responsibility of the Forgejo project.</s> The <a href="" style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Glaho_GPL&amp;GNU_2009&quot;;">Well Being and Moderation</a> teams are available to avoid tension and resolve conflicts. </p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;sf_arch_rivalregular&quot;;">Is Forgejo licensed under AGPL?</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;serif&quot;;"><s> No. The <a href="">license of Forgejo</a> is the same as the the license of Gitea. It was suggested to change the license to AGPL in order to prevent a takeover from a for-profit company. It was however decided that the best way to prevent such a takeover was to ask that the Forgejo domains and trademarks are in the custody of the Codeberg e.V. non-profit. </s></p>
<h2 class="text-2xl py-4" style="font-family: &quot;sf_arch_rivalregular&quot;;">How are security vulnerabilities handled?</h2>
<p style="font-family: &quot;BPG_Excelsior_Caps_GPL&amp;GNU&quot;;"> Security issues are managed by <a href="">a team</a> sharing the effort between Codeberg and Forgejo. </p>
