Primary Source repository

The main source of foran is on a mountain in central Switzerland. We use distributed version control (git). There is no central hub. Every clone can become a new source for the benefit of all. The preferred public clone of foran is:

  • at sourcehut - a collection of tools useful for software development.


Please do not submit "pull requests" (I found no way to disable that "feature" on GitHub). If you like to share small changes under the repositories license please kindly do so by sending a patchset. You can either send such a patchset per email using git send-email or if you are a sourcehut user by selecting "Prepare a patchset" on the summary page of your fork at sourcehut.


Please kindly submit issues at or write plain text email to ~sthagen/[email protected] to submit patches and request support. Thanks.
