Working through forge downtime

Noted by on his .

Sourcehut and Codeberg are experiencing reliability issues due to an ongoing layer-3 DDoS attack.

I managed to continue working on this site uninterrupted:

  • I practice Hydra Hosting by simultaneously pushing to at least four remotes (,,,,, and a private one).

  • My CI manifests are thin wrappers around shell scripts, Makefiles, and other portable tooling.

  • My CI dependencies are mostly statically-linked binaries in a tarball that I host at multiple locations.

  • My CI jobs can all run locally.

  • I use email-based contributions: I accept pull-requests on other forges with email notifications, and formatted patches through email.

I don’t ever want to be limited by a single provider’s uptime if I can help it.
