Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Description     : Work with Git forges from the comfort of Magit

Forge allows you to work with Git forges, such as Github and Gitlab,
from the comfort of Magit and the rest of Emacs.

Forge fetches issues, pull-requests and other data using the forge’s
API and stores that in a local database. Additionally it fetches the
pull-request references using Git. Forge implements various features
that use this data but the database and pull-request refs can also be
used by third-party packages.

Forge currently supports the following forges in one way or the other:

 * Github
 * Gitlab
 * Gitweb
 * Cgit
 * Stgit
 * Srht

There are also plans to support Gitea and Gogs and possibly


I keep on coming back to this package. I think it's installable
through MELPA but because of the poor connexion here, I'm having
trouble testing it.

Since we already have magit in the archive, it would seem natural to
package this extremely useful tool.

There's a similar tool in Debian packaged as elpa-magithub but that
only works for github, while magit-forge supports other forges as
well, like gitlab, gitea and so on.
