Is this still the case today? Browsing has been rather snappy for me
since the performance fixes went in a while back.

At the moment, Gitea is purely a read-only code browsing and Git
server interface in the OpenDev Collaboratory. Any of its more
interactive features have been disabled so that we can load-balance
requests across multiple (currently eight) Gitea servers to handle
the volume of code browsing and Git fetches we see at peak. These
multiple Gitea services can't share a common database backend, and
until that happens we can't really consider trying any of its
features which require accounts/authentication or storing stateful
data (issues, wiki, et cetera).

The plan is and has always been to put together a central
authentication broker to act as an SSO for all of the services which
make up the OpenDev Collaboratory, for a more consistent and
flexible user experience. It wouldn't be managed by the OSF, it
would just be part of the services we're managing in OpenDev:

If anyone's interested in helping us execute that plan, please let
us know. The more, the merrier!
