#ForgeFed update! πŸ˜€

We're planning to implement in both #Pagure and #Gitea. Still waiting to finalize funding details with NLNet.

Implementation of author-hosted tickets in Vervis is in progress, and so is OAuth2. Next will come patches/MRs, and then we can finally release that Draft 1 along with a demo.
