It was announced a few months ago: Blender was undertaking the gargantuan task of migrating its massive codebase and development platform to Gitea, as a replacement for the deprecated Phabricator it used to run on. After months of hard work, the move is complete! Find the new development portal here.
Great milestone, a modern github style code project management on blender-org! All with free/open source software. Hugs & compliments for the team.

Francesco published a post on the Blender Developers Blog outlining the successful move and key information for Blender developers, including new URLs for the moved Git repositories. The current state of the new portal is as follows:
- Bug reports and design tasks have been migrated to projects.blender.org. This includes task status, priority, labels and subscribers.
- User accounts have been migrated to Blender ID. If you had a Blender ID account, the username is now set to the one from the profile there. If you did not, a new Blender ID account was created. Please contact Blender ID support in case of any problems, or reach out through the dedicated chat channel.
- Code reviews and pastes have not been migrated but archived. Pending code reviews need to be resubmitted as pull requests.
- Workboards and project descriptions will be manually recreated by the modules.
Congratulations to the Blender team for pulling this huge task! Check out the aforementioned post and the new development portal on the links below:
