FSD = Free Software Foundation's Directory https://directory.fsf.org

We would need a separate wiki for that, because we cannot guarantee that the software executed by the remote service is the same of the source code repository. In other words, we cannot ensure the remote service is free... and we must only accept 100% free software and link to websites which do not endorse non-free software. - FSD representative

for now we can't, because of physical restrictions. One day, I'm sure we'll start linking to self-hosted services. However, currently there aren't rules which allow that. - FSD representative

Was encouraged to file a new bug in the development plan located in Backlog section of the FSD.

Requiring brainstorm about implementation to ensure that FSF is 100% sure that dotya is providing libre gitea

I might be postulating but it's possible this VPS is running VMware..which would happen to be non-free.
other than that, I am not aware of running anything non-free. even that is in fact not me running the stuff (should find a libre provider maybe).

so how would this work? @kreyren
what I'm planning to do is a push-triggered, drone+ansible-deployed Gitea, but we're not there - yet.
so there's no way to prove what I'm saying (that we're running libre Gitea) at the moment, I think, but there will be in the future.

The VPS provider claims to use a "KVM based virtualisation solution" but that's about as much info as they provide about the servers. A cursory look through the vps config however suggests that it is indeed running under VMware.

Another thing to consider is future expansion. Not that I have anything against the noble goal of the fsf, quite the opposite, but we should think about other potential uses which may require nonfree components.

What exactly is required to become certified as an fsf compatible service?

to reiterate @dalahast:
