Given the social aspects, the ecosystem-level scope, I feel strongly that FFF project should be part of forg.es. It can help make this umbrella community meaningful, and it gives independence to the project, same as ForgeFed gives independence to forge federation.
This has additional benefits. I see forg.es as the home of an Ecosystem Alliance where all the sociotechnical ‘cross-cutting’ concerns of forging software (the craft and arts) can be addressed. If there is a crowdsourcing process, then it has to be defined only once. If there are multiple standardization processes, they can be based on the same reference material and improved over time.
“Ecosystem Alliance” is a Social Coding best-practice defined by me that is part of the Social Coding FSDL. It is very interesting to elaborate the benefits such alliance can bring, and how it can be established. Note that FSDL is integral part of Social Coding Movement, and hence that it can be part of the Alliance around forges. It would be a great fit. forg.es can be member of the co-shared community (CC @realaravinth). I would love to discuss the ins and outs in more detail.
