not sure if my instincts are off so lmk how you all feel about this: "in a hypothetical federated git platform, i would like it if conversations in a repository (eg issues and pull requests) were stored directly in the repository as opposed to in a database on the server"

boosts appreciated

@nasser only if the tools for the discussion in the repository has firat class moderation features tbh.

@thufie @nasser this exactly
there are reasons you want to distribute something, but the "everything lasts forever and is immutable" nature of git commits is not really something you want in a discussion platform. there are already issues here re: name changes that would only become more difficult to solve

@pounce @thufie this is excellent feedback, thank you. yes, a lot of thought would have to go into how access to conversation branches would work.
