About governance and decisions in Gna!

Gna! provides Gitea hosting and services. It is supported by a collective governed by the rules enumerated in the Gna! manifesto. A governance emerges over time and is discussed in this category. Decisions should be proposed as a new topic and the result (either consensus or vote) recorded for archive purposes.

Gna! manifesto

Gna! is a collective of individuals and organizations providing Gitea hosting and services. It has no hierarchy: anyone can do what they want as long as they respect others. Differences, divergences and disagreements are encouraged: they are a source of diversity and creativity. Although most of the work is focused on finding innovative methods and create original software, it also is necessary to spend significant time listening to others and improve how we communicate: this is what fuels a healthy collective where everyone can feel safe and appreciated.
