You may have heard of a little pet project I have been working on recently, I called it progit but there already a more well-known project named progit (the pro git book).
So, after long deliberations, we decided to rename the project: pagure.
What is Pagure?
Pagure is a small git-centered forge project. You can host your code, your documentation, your tickets and have people contribute to the project by forking it and opening pull-requests.
All the information about the project is hosted in different git repositories, the code of course, but also the documentation as well as the metadata (discussion) of tickets and pull-requests. The idea being that one could host a project in multiples instances of pagure and keep them in sync.
What about the name?
Pagure is the generic (French) name for animals of the Paguroidea family which includes the well known Pagurus bernhardus. This little crab moves from shell to shell as it grows up. I found it was a nice analogy with this forge where project can move from place to place.
Where can I see it?
Pagure is still under development and pretty much changes every day. However, you can already see it, test it and poke at it via the dev instance we have running.
As you will see, pagure itself is being developed there, so feel free to open a ticket if pagure does not do something you would like (or does something you do not like).
