Third-party, software development workflow enhancing SaaS

I had a chat with a friend who works at $StartUp that uses GitHub and GitHub-dependent software development enhancing SaaS(examples: Liberapay, Codecov). The amount they spend on third-party services is more than what they pay for GitHub pro.

The federated forge ecosystem can benefit if we provide forge-agnostic endpoints that resemble GitHub’s API. This way, third-party SaaS can be modified to work with all federating forges with minimal modifications.

Do you mean something similar to the promise of Gitea to provide an API that is identical to GitHub ?

Yes, but we can make improvements wherever necessary. While improving upon ForgeFed, we should also pay special attention to include functionality that third-party applications rely on.
