[DOCS] CONTRIBUTING/RELEASE: https://forgejo.org/docs/admin

Because the version is not displayed on the landing page of Forgejo,
there cannot be a link to a versionned documentation. There must exist
a link that points to the latest version on the website for the
forgejo instance to display.

Better but more complicated approaches could be to:

* Embed the documentation in Forgejo
* Allow the admin to not display the help
* Allow the admin to display a versionned help or not

# Code of Conduct, Well Being and Moderation teams
Forgejo strives to be an inclusive project where everyone can participate in a safe environment. The **Well Being** team is doing its best to defuse tensions before they escalate and is available to answer all requests sent its way. When diplomacy fails, the **Moderation** team will be forced to act to put a stop to actions that are contrary to the [Code of Conduct](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/code-of-conduct).
## Well Being and Moderation teams
Temporary Well Being and Moderation teams [were appointed 10 November 2022](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/issues/13).
The moderation team will rely on this [Code of Conduct](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/code-of-conduct) when diplomacy fails.
### Well Being
Their goal is to defuse tensions.
It has no power whatsover. The members are approved by the organization and trusted to:
- Read all communications to detect tensions between people before they escalate.
- Do their best to defuse tensions.
* https://codeberg.org/Gusted
### Moderation
Their goal is to enforce the [Code of Conduct](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/code-of-conduct) when diplomacy fails.
It has the power to exclude people from a space.
Their decisions must be logical, fact based and transparent to the Forgejo community who trust them with this responsibility.

# Governance
## Codeberg e.V. custodian of the domains
The Forgejo [domains](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/issues/41) are owned by the democratic non-profit dedicated to Free Software [Codeberg e.V.](https://codeberg.org/Codeberg/org/src/branch/main/en/bylaws.md). Forgejo is therefore ultimately under the control of Codeberg e.V. and its governance. However, although Codeberg e.V. is committed to use and host Forgejo, it is expected that Forgejo defines its own governance, in a way that is compatible with the Codeberg e.V. governance.
## Forgejo Governance
See our [decision-making system](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/src/branch/readme/DECISION-MAKING.md) (contains team agreements and guidelines).
Forgejo was bootstraped in November 2022 and is in the process of [defining its governance](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/issues/19). The [first meeting happened November 24th](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/issues/19#issuecomment-694460) and everyone is welcome to participate.
## Interim Forgejo Governance
While the governance is being defined, there was a need to establish an interim Forgejo governance for safeguarding credentials, enforcing the Code of Conduct and ensuring security vulnerabilities are handled responsibly for the Forgejo releases.
All people with a role in the interim Forgejo governance pledge to resign as soon as the Forgejo governance is in place.
The people and teams that are part of the interim governance are [listed publicly](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/src/branch/readme/TEAMS.md).

# Release management
## Release numbering
The Forgejo release numbers are composed of the Gitea release number followed by a dash and a serial number. For instance:
* Gitea **v1.18.0** will be Forgejo **v1.18.0-0**, **v1.18.0-1**, etc
The Gitea release candidates are suffixed with **-rcN** which is handled as a special case for packaging: although **X.Y.Z** is lexicographically lower than **X.Y.Z-rc1** is is considered greater. The Forgejo serial number must therefore be inserted before the **-rcN** suffix to preserve the expected version ordering.
* Gitea **v1.18.0-rc0** will be Forgejo **v1.18.0-0-rc0**, **v1.18.0-1-rc0**
* Gitea **v1.18.0-rc1** will be Forgejo **v1.18.0-2-rc1**, **v1.18.0-3-rc1**, **v1.18.0-4-rc1**
* Gitea **v1.18.0** will be Forgejo **v1.18.0-5**, **v1.18.0-6**, **v1.18.0-7**
* etc.
Because Forgejo is a soft fork of Gitea, it must retain the same release numbering scheme to be compatible with libraries and tools that depend on it. For instance, the tea CLI or the Gitea SDK will behave differently depending on the server version they connect to. If Forgejo had a different numbering scheme, it would no longer be compatible with the Gitea ecosystem.
From a [Semantic Versioning](https://semver.org/) standpoint, all Forgejo releases are [pre-releases](https://semver.org/#spec-item-9) because they are suffixed with a dash. They are syntactically correct but do not comply with the Semantic Versioning recommendations. Gitea is not compliant either and as long as Forgejo is a soft fork, it inherits this problem.
## Release process
When publishing the vX.Y.Z-N release, the following steps must be followed:
### Create a milestone and a check list
* Create a `Forgejo vX.X.Z-N` milestone set to the date of the release
* Create an issue named `[RELEASE] Forgejo vX.Y.Z-N` with a description that includes a list of what needs to be done for the release with links to follow the progress
* Set the milestone of this issue to `Forgejo vX.X.Z-N`
* Close the milestone when the release is complete
### Cherry pick the latest commits from Gitea
The vX.Y/forgejo branch is populated as part of the [rebase on top of Gitea](WORKFLOW.md). The release happens in between rebase and it is worth checking if the matching Gitea branch, release/vX.Y contains commits that should be included in the release.
* `cherry-pick -x` the commits
* push the vX.Y/forgejo branch including the commits
* verify that the tests pass
### Release Notes
* Add an entry in RELEASE-NOTES.md
* Copy/paste the matching entry from CHANGELOG.md
* Update the PR references prefixing them with https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/pull/
### Testing
When Forgejo is released, artefacts (packages, binaries, etc.) are first published by the CI/CD pipelines in the https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental organization, to be downloaded and verified to work.
* Push the vX.Y/forgejo branch to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration/forgejo
* Push the vX.Y.Z-N tag to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration (if it fails for whatever reason, the tag and the release can be removed manually)
* Binaries are built and uploaded to https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo-integration/releases
* Container images are built and uploaded to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration/-/packages/container/forgejo/versions
* Push the vX.Y/forgejo branch to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental/forgejo
* Push the vX.Y/forgejo branch to https://codeberg.org/forgejo/experimental
* Push the vX.Y.Z-N tag to https://codeberg.org/forgejo/experimental
* Binaries are downloaded from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration, signed and copied to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental
* Container images are copied from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental
* Fetch the Forgejo release as part of the [forgejo-ci](https://codeberg.org/Codeberg-Infrastructure/scripted-configuration/src/branch/main/hosts/forgejo-ci) test suite. Push the change to a branch of a repository enabled in https://ci.dachary.org/ ([read more...](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues/208)). It will deploy the release and run high level integration tests.
* Reach out to packagers and users to manually verify the release works as expected
### Publication
* Push the vX.Y.Z-N tag to https://codeberg.org/forgejo/release
* Binaries are downloaded from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration, signed and copied to https://codeberg.org/forgejo
* Container images are copied from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration to https://codeberg.org/forgejo
### Website update
* Restart the last CI build at https://codeberg.org/forgejo/website/src/branch/main/
* Verify https://forgejo.org/download/ points to the expected release
* Update the [documentation link to the latest version](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/website/src/commit/e63c6f8ab64876b10b86de1d18162b6ccb87bd99/.woodpecker.yml#L35)
* Manually try the instructions to work
### DNS update
* Update the `release.forgejo.org` TXT record that starts with `forgejo_versions=` to be `forgejo_versions=vX.Y.Z-N`
### Standard toot
The following toot can be re-used to announce a minor release at `https://floss.social/@forgejo`. For more significant releases it is best to consider a dedicated and non-standard toot.
```
#Forgejo vX.Y.Z-N was just released! This is a minor patch. Check out the release notes and download it at https://forgejo.org/releases/. If you experience any issues with this release, please report to https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues.
```
## Release signing keys management
A GPG master key with no expiration date is created and shared with members of the Owners team via encrypted email. A subkey with a one year expiration date is created and stored in the secrets repository, to be used by the CI pipeline. The public master key is stored in the secrets repository and published where relevant.
### Master key creation
* gpg --expert --full-generate-key
* key type: ECC and ECC option with Curve 25519 as curve
* no expiration
* id: Forgejo Releases <contact@forgejo.org>
* gpg --export-secret-keys --armor EB114F5E6C0DC2BCDD183550A4B61A2DC5923710 and send via encrypted email to Owners
* gpg --export --armor EB114F5E6C0DC2BCDD183550A4B61A2DC5923710 > release-team-gpg.pub
* commit to the secret repository
### Subkey creation and renewal
* gpg --expert --edit-key EB114F5E6C0DC2BCDD183550A4B61A2DC5923710
* addkey
* key type: ECC (signature only)
* key validity: one year
* create [an issue](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues) to schedule the renewal
#### 2023
* gpg --export --armor F7CBF02094E7665E17ED6C44E381BF3E50D53707 > 2023-release-team-gpg.pub
* gpg --export-secret-keys --armor F7CBF02094E7665E17ED6C44E381BF3E50D53707 > 2023-release-team-gpg
* commit to the secrets repository
* renewal issue https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues/58
### CI configuration
In the Woodpecker CI configuration the following secrets must be set:
* `releaseteamgpg` is the secret GPG key used to sign the releases
* `releaseteamuser` is the user name to authenticate with the Forgejo API and publish the releases
* `releaseteamtoken` is the token to authenticate `releaseteamuser` with the Forgejo API and publish the releases
* `domain` is `codeberg.org`
## Users, organizations and repositories
### Shared user: release-team
The [release-team](https://codeberg.org/release-team) user publishes and signs all releases. The associated email is mailto:release@forgejo.org.
The public GPG key used to sign the releases is [EB114F5E6C0DC2BCDD183550A4B61A2DC5923710](https://codeberg.org/release-team.gpg) `Forgejo Releases <release@forgejo.org>`
### Shared user: forgejo-ci
The [forgejo-ci](https://codeberg.org/forgejo-ci) user is dedicated to https://forgejo-ci.codeberg.org/ and provides it with OAuth2 credentials it uses to run.
### Shared user: forgejo-experimental-ci
The [forgejo-experimental-ci](https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental-ci) user is dedicated to provide the application tokens used by Woodpecker CI repositories to build releases and publish them to https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental. It does not (and must not) have permission to publish releases at https://codeberg.org/forgejo.
### Integration and experimental organization
The https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration organization is dedicated to integration testing. Its purpose is to ensure all artefacts can effectively be published and retrieved by the CI/CD pipelines.
The https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental organization is dedicated to publishing experimental Forgejo releases. They are copied from the https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration organization.
The `forgejo-experimental-ci` user as well as all Forgejo contributors working on the CI/CD pipeline should be owners of both organizations.
The https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration/forgejo repository is coupled with a Woodpecker CI repository configured with the credentials provided by the https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental-ci user. It runs the pipelines found in `releases/woodpecker-build/*.yml` which builds and publishes an unsigned release in https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration.
### Experimental and release repositories
The https://codeberg.org/forgejo/experimental private repository is coupled with a Woodpecker CI repository configured with the credentials provided by the https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental-ci user. It runs the pipelines found in `releases/woodpecker-publish/*.yml` which signs and copies a release from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration into https://codeberg.org/forgejo-experimental.
The https://codeberg.org/forgejo/release private repository is coupled with a Woodpecker CI repository configured with the credentials provided by the https://codeberg.org/release-team user. It runs the pipelines found in `releases/woodpecker-publish/*.yml` which signs and copies a release from https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration into https://codeberg.org/forgejo.

# Secrets
All Forgejo credentials are shared among the [secret keepers](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/meta/src/branch/readme/TEAMS.md#secrets-keeper) teams in a private repository with encrypted content.
## Get started
1. Make sure you have a GPG Key, or [create one](https://github.com/NicoHood/gpgit#12-key-generation)
2. Send someone else your public key and ask this person to add yourself as a recipient
```
# Commands for the other person
$ gpg --import public_key.asc
# The following command will open a prompt, with the available public keys.
# Choose the one you just added and all secrets will be re-encrypted with this new key.
$ gopass recipients add
```
3. [Install gopass](https://www.gopass.pw/#install)
> :warning: When installing on Ubuntu or Debian you can either download the deb package, install manually or build from source or use our APT repository ([github comment](https://github.com/gopasspw/gopass/issues/1849#issuecomment-802789285) with more information).
4. Clone this repo using `gopass` (the name and email are for `git config`)
```
$ gopass clone git@codeberg.org:forgejo/gopass.git
```
5. Check the consistency of the gopass storage
```
$ gopass fsck
```
## Get a secret
Show the whole secret file:
```
$ gopass show ovh.com/manager
```
Copy the password in the clipboard:
```
$ gopass show -c ovh.com/manager
```
Copy the `user` part of the secret in the clipboard:
```
$ gopass show -c ovh.com/manager user
```
## Insert or edit a secret
```
$ gopass edit ovh.com/manager
```
In the editor, insert the password on the first line.
You may then add lines with a `key: value` syntax (`user: username` for instance).
## Debugging and manual git operations
The following command will show the location and status of the git repo (all git commands are available).
```
$ gopass git status
```

# Development workflow
Forgejo is a soft fork, i.e. a set of commits applied to the Gitea development branch and the stable branches. On a regular basis those commits are rebased and modified if necessary to keep working. All Forgejo commits are merged into a branch from which binary releases and packages are created and distributed. The development workflow is a set of conventions Forgejo developers are expected to follow to work together.
Discussions on how the workflow should evolve happen [in the isssue tracker](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues?type=all&state=open&labels=&milestone=0&assignee=0&q=%5BWORKFLOW%5D).
## Naming conventions
### Development
* Gitea: main
* Forgejo: forgejo
* Feature branches: forgejo-feature-name
### Stable
* Gitea: release/vX.Y
* Forgejo: vX.Y/forgejo
* Feature branches: vX.Y/forgejo-feature-name
### Soft fork history
Before rebasing on top of Gitea, all branches are copied to `soft-fork/YYYY-MM-DD/<branch>` for safekeeping. Older `soft-fork/*/<branch>` branches are converted into references under the same name. Similar to how pull requests store their head, they do not clutter the list of branches but can be retrieved if needed with `git fetch +refs/soft-fork/*:refs/soft-fork/*`. Tooling to automate this archival process [is available](https://codeberg.org/forgejo-contrib/soft-fork-tools/src/branch/master/README.md#archive-branches).
### Tags
Because the branches are rebased on top of Gitea, only the latest tag will be found in a given branch. For instance `v1.18.0-1` won't be found in the `v1.18/forgejo` branch after it is rebased.
## Rebasing
### *Feature branch*
The *Gitea* branches are mirrored with the Gitea development and stable branches.
On a regular basis, each *Feature branch* is rebased against the base *Gitea* branch.
### forgejo branch
The latest *Gitea* branch resets the *forgejo* branch and all *Feature branches* are merged into it.
If tests pass after pushing *forgejo* to the https://codeberg.org/forgejo-integration/forgejo repository, it can be pushed to the https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo repository.
If tests do not pass, an issue is filed to the *Feature branch* that fails the test. Once the issue is resolved, another round of rebasing starts.
### Cherry picking and rebasing
Because Forgejo is a soft fork of Gitea, the commits in feature branches need to be cherry-picked on top of their base branch. They cannot be rebased using `git rebase`, because their base branch has been rebased.
Here is how the commits in the `forgejo-f3` branch can be cherry-picked on top of the latest `forgejo-development` branch:
```
$ git fetch --all
$ git remote get-url forgejo
git@codeberg.org:forgejo/forgejo.git
$ git checkout -b forgejo/forgejo-f3
$ git reset --hard forgejo/forgejo-development
$ git cherry-pick $(git rev-list --reverse forgejo/soft-fork/2022-12-10/forgejo-development..forgejo/soft-fork/2022-12-10/forgejo-f3)
$ git push --force forgejo-f3 forgejo/forgejo-f3
```
## Feature branches
All *Feature branches* are based on the {vX.Y/,}forgejo-development branch which provides development tools and documentation.
The `forgejo-development` branch is based on the {vX.Y/,}forgejo-ci branch which provides the Woodpecker CI configuration.
The purpose of each *Feature branch* is documented below:
### General purpose
* [forgejo-ci](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-ci) based on [main](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/main)
Woodpecker CI configuration, including the release process.
* Backports: [v1.18/forgejo-ci](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-ci)
* [forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-development) based on [forgejo-ci](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-ci)
Forgejo development tools and documentation.
* Backports: [v1.18/forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-development)
### Dependency
* [forgejo-dependency](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-dependency) based on [forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-development)
Each commit is prefixed with the name of dependency in uppercase, for instance **[GOTH]** or **[GITEA]**. They are standalone and implement either a bug fix or a feature that is in the process of being contributed to the dependency. It is better to contribute directly to the dependency instead of adding a commit to this branch but it is sometimes not possible, for instance when someone does not have a GitHub account. The author of the commit is responsible for rebasing and resolve conflicts. The ultimate goal of this branch is to be empty and it is expected that a continuous effort is made to reduce its content so that the technical debt it represents does not burden Forgejo long term.
* Backports: [v1.18/forgejo-dependency](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-dependency)
### [Privacy](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues?labels=83271)
* [forgejo-privacy](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-privacy) based on [forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-development)
Customize Forgejo to have more privacy.
* Backports: [v1.18/forgejo-privacy](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-privacy)
### Branding
* [forgejo-branding](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-branding) based on [forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-development)
Replacing upstream branding with Forgejo branding
### [Internationalization](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues?labels=82637)
* [forgejo-i18n](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-i18n) based on [forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/forgejo-development)
Internationalization support for Forgejo with a workflow based on Weblate.
### [Accessibility](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues?labels=81214)
* Backports only: [v1.18/forgejo-a11y](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-a11y) based on [v1.18/forgejo-development](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/src/branch/v1.18/forgejo-development)
Backport future upstream a11y improvements to the current release of Forgejo
### [Federation](https://codeberg.org/forgejo/forgejo/issues?labels=79349)

## Pull requests and feature branches
Most people who are used to contributing will be familiar with the workflow of sending a pull request against the default branch. When that happens the reviewer should change the base branch to the appropriate *Feature branch* instead. If the pull request does not fit in any *Feature branch*, the reviewer needs to make decision to either:
* Decline the pull request because it is best contributed to Gitea
* Create a new *Feature branch*
Returning contributors can figure out which *Feature branch* to base their pull request on using the list of *Feature branches*.
## Granularity
*Feature branches* can contain a number of commits grouped together, for instance for branding the documentation, the landing page and the footer. It makes it convenient for people working on that topic to get the big picture without browsing multiple branches. Creating a new *Feature branch* for each individual commit, while possible, is likely to be difficult to work with.
Observing the granularity of the existing *Feature branches* is the best way to figure out what works and what does not. It requires adjustments from time to time depending on the number of contributors and the complexity of the Forgejo codebase that sits on top of Gitea.
