I do. It runs Gitea that has an API quite similar to Github.

Content DB if used with GitHub allows to create a release (e.g. Mod Name v1.0) directly on GitHub - istead, while using it with other git platforms it needs to save a local copy, stored into a zip archive.

Despite I dislike GitHub due to the reasons that you've written in your post, well, under this aspect it is better: releases should stay on their repositories, for simplicity and space saving.

Obviously it may be that this could be achieved with other git platforms, but it would be crazy to ask rubenwardy to check each and every git API to achieve the same.

So I wonder if Mesehub could be eligible to become the official Minetest git, and if it would be possible to make it work like GitHub regarding the Content DB.


I'm going to remove this soon, as people keep deleting their repos. Space isn't an issue anyway, bandwidth would be if we got a larger number of users

Kudos! I hope that in time it can grow and become the de facto Minetest community's git.
I will register there and I'll keep NotABug as backup mirror.

I see, well, good to know that space isn't an issue. Fingers crossed for the bandwidth...
