What's cooking on SourceHut? April 2022

Hello! Another month of improvements rolls on by, and I’m here to tell you all about them. In terms of site growth, we saw 510 new users join us, bringing our total to 28,406. As always, please be patient with our new peers as you help them learn about the site.

General news

This month we released our annual financial report. In summary, SourceHut is financially healthy. Feel free to browse the full report to get all of the details.

We have been making excellent progress on the GraphQL initiative thanks to Adnan’s help, and I anticipate that we will be able to put a bow on this sometime in the next couple of months.


Work is underway on integrating improvements to the hg.sr.ht GraphQL API. The API is now writable, supporting all essential resource mutations, and GQL-native webhooks should be landing shortly.


Setting the oauth keys in your build manifest will now pre-configure your build environment for use with the hut tool.

Image updates:


We have integrated the new go-emailthreads library with lists.sr.ht, which provides much better heuristics for parsing mail threads into trees. We will soon update the lists.sr.ht frontend to take advantage of this.


The branch name is now included in the build tags when submitting pushes to builds.sr.ht. You may want to update your badge URLs if you use them.


It is not available yet, but in the next few days we expect to merge support for configuring per-file cache behavior for your site.
