Gitlab hosting - Fwd: Transmitter - GUI for transmission-daemon and transmission-remote

Since Sébastien brought this up.

Do we want to advertise hosting space if people are thinking of writing  GNOME applications as part of a greater desire to create a more solid GNOME/GTK+ developer community?

Advantages are that we would be more active in what our developers are writing and see problems with development.  There would also be a path for more maintainers in parts of the eco-system.  Also a place for new designers to find tasks to do.

The engagement/marketing team could start reaching out to developers to host their GTK+/GNOME project there.  The only issue would be to understand the costs of hosting as that could be problematic in the long term.  It could be a great problem to have provided we have stable funding sources.

I think that alone is not sufficient to host a project,
for example is there a way to upload tarballs?

I think that new maintainers like Felipe need to ask for an account

As long as the project meets the prerequisites:

There are many projects hosted on which are not officially
part of GNOME. A bittorrent GTK+ client is definitely the kind of
project that makes sense to host on

But GNOME has two categories: core and apps. For example for the latest
 core   -
 apps   -

A bittorrent client could be part of apps, no? In that category there
are games, an IRC client, developer tools, even a hex editor and
gnome-multi-writer (some niche applications), so why not a bittorrent
client? The boundary seems arbitrary.
