The following issue & pull request were completed a few hours ago. They are ready to be claimed.

Feature Request: Implement Nodeinfo endpoints for federation discovery

Can I make the claim here, or would in the issue be better? I’m not sure what you were thinking of for amounts, but would half the amount be a suitable amount considering it is 1/2 of the tickets (if not please let me know what you think is indeed suitable)? And as for compensation for reviewers I could send 25% of whatever I am paid to Gitea’s opencollective (the transparent tool Gitea’s project uses to manage it’s funds) to be claimed by reviewers?

As previously discussed, I can send my IBAN details via email.

The issue would be better. Unless you think there is a problem in doing so?

The grant is setup so the amount is agreed upon between the person who accomplished the work (that’s you in this case) and least one Gitea owner. Here is how you could proceed:

More than one person can make a claim on a given issue or pull request, in the same way. The details of how the amount is used or how it is evaluated is not in the scope of the grant, it is entirely for the Gitea owners to decide and neither @pilou or me will have a say on the matter.

No problem, just making sure of things :slight_smile: I’ve just posted there and the other owners may be sleeping now in their timezone, but with luck they will respond in a reasonable amount of time :slight_smile:

Edit: thinking about this now, it is probably easier for the other owners to approve considering I am the only one with an account here.

Aha, I was wrong. The other owners are indeed awake, and Lafriks has approved.

@techknowlogick would you be so kind as to confirm you received the wire transfer?

To confirm: I’ve received the both the transfers, totalling 2,500EUR.

Merci :slight_smile:

@techknowlogick would it make sense to tag this pull request with the theme/federation label?

Now that the two remaining PRs have been merged I’ve submitted a claim for the remaining earmarked funds, which has received approval from the other two Gitea owners (via thumbs up reactions to my claim post), please see here:

I confirm that I verified the approval and the topic was updated accordingly. I will wire my half of the funds (1,250€) in two weeks, i.e. Monday 6th, 2021.

The same amount has been wired today (to the same account). @techknowlogick Once received, could you provided a receipt mentioning the GitHub issue and the period whenever you have worked on this issue (from 18/08/2021 to 28/09/2021)?


Indeed, I will provide a similar receipt to you in as I did previously.

The transfer just arrived in my account and so I will provide the receipt today (via PM to prevent my address from being publicly posted)


Transparency note: I’ve just received the 2nd transfer from @dachary

Thank you both for your support of federation in Gitea <3

For completeness, would you be so kind as to explain how the reclaimed funds were dispatched, with URLs where possible? It is fine if they stayed with you in the end. But if they were redistributed, it would be interesting to know how and why.

Thanks for your continuous work on Gitea.
