I wonder what is the difference between having a Sourcehut account or not in this case.
However, we also hold some caveats regarding the alpha.
From the beta onwards, unpaid accounts will be limited to read-only access to their own projects. Affected users will be emailed at least 60 days in advance of the transition. Users who host their own instance of Sourcehut, on their own servers, will be unaffected by this. Additionally, financial aid will be provided to those who cannot pay; no one is going to be priced out.
The exact details of any billing changes will be discussed extensively with the community well in advance, and you are welcome to make yourself heard in these discussions.
See the billing FAQ for details.
Some of our services are not complete, and you may notice conspicuously absent features. However, if you find the current featureset meets your needs, it may already be suitable for your use. Our documentation is also incomplete.
Some notable features which are still under development in the alpha period include:
- First-class support for user groups/organizations
- A web-based workflow for submitting and reviewing patches on lists.sr.ht
- Full data autonomy, including account data import & export, account deletion, and username changes
The “beta” label is used on our bug trackers to indicate tickets which are prioritized for the beta.
We are developing a new GraphQL API which we intend to support onwards into the future. Users of the legacy API will be notified of any deprecations in advance, and assistance in migrating your software will be offered. The new API, once finalized, will be supported for at least 5 years.
The beta will be considered feature complete, but may be lacking in docs and polish, or have minor known bugs. “Feature complete” is defined as “meeting the basic goals in a stable and consistent package”, but doesn’t necessarily mean that no new features will be developed in the post-beta period. The beta period will be short, we will settle any issues which arise from the payment model changing, polish and document everything, and promote it to the production phase shortly thereafter.
