Subject: Re: [erlang-questions] Writing a cryptocurrency in
Erlang



Having a GitHub mirror can be done, but it would ease tracking only of the
repository itself, not of related issues. Tracking full project is possible
without registration using an Atom feed ( https://gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin.atom
); there are also Atom feeds for branches (
https://gitlab.com/Ercoin/ercoin/commits/master?format=atom ) and raw
repository can potentially be tracked using plain Git. It is also possible to
login to GitLab using GitHub. I’m not saying however that there will no GitHub
mirror.

It can be argued that it is easier to gain audience when hosting a repository
on a more popular service, but I don’t believe that a solution to this problem
is making everyone just use the one, biggest site (GitHub in this case). If
people were able to create decentralized social networking sites and protocols
like ActivityPub, then it should be also possible to create a decentralized
social coding site. Actually there already exists a P2P GitHub alternative
using Secure Scuttlebutt:

, but currently it seems to suffer from important deficiencies:
