Primary Source repository

The primary source of foran lives somewhere on a mountain in Central Switzerland. But, we use decentralized version control (git), so any clone can become the source to everyone's benefit, no central only code. Anyway, the preferred public clones of foran are:

  • on codeberg - a democratic community-driven, non-profit software development platform operated by Codeberg e.V.
  • at sourcehut - a collection of tools useful for software development.
