Hello everyone! We’re back at it for another month of news in the
SourceHut sphere. Of our now 29,036 users, 630 are new this month:
please offer them a warm welcome, and your patience, as they learn about
the new platform.

## todo.sr.ht

Comprehensive GraphQL-native webhooks shipped for todo.sr.ht this month.

Here’s the latest GraphQL support break-down:

meta.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✓ webhooks
git.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✓ webhooks
hg.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✓ webhooks
todo.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✓ webhooks
builds.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✗ webhooks
lists.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✗ webhooks
hub.sr.ht
    ✗ read ✗ write ✗ webhooks
paste.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✗ webhooks
pages.sr.ht
    ✓ read ✓ write ✗ webhooks

We’re getting there! The remaining webhooks should be fairly
straightforward — lists will be the most complex of these — and updating
hub.sr.ht will be the last major project before we complete the initial
GraphQL implementation. Following this we will be experimenting with
GraphQL federation as well, and once we have an answer regarding
federation, the GraphQL milestone will be complete, and we’ll have taken
the largest step towards the beta.

## Coming improvements to hut

The hut command-line tool provides programmatic access to the SourceHut
GraphQL APIs. I have been working on support for a comprehensive data
export via this tool recently, which will be followed by an equivalent
data import tool. This will allow you to take your account data from
sr.ht to another instance, or to an instance with compatible software —
most of the exported data is in standard formats like bare git repos and
mbox archives. This is also another step towards the data ownership goal
of the beta, and will be followed soon by self-service account deletion
and renaming — which also require the completion of the GraphQL APIs
that are progressing apace.

## lists.sr.ht

The new go-emailthreads library was integrated into lists.sr.ht’s
GraphQL API, which is the next step for improving the heuristics used on
the code review screen.

## meta.sr.ht

Work is underway, some of which landed this month, to improve PGP
support on SourceHut, expanding the suite of supported ciphers and
making it more reliable. Additional changes are expected in the
foreseeable future to handle PGP key expiration, notifying users when
their key needs to be cycled.

## builds.sr.ht

Image updates:

- ubuntu/kinetic is now available
- ubuntu/jammy is now available
- fedora/36 is now available

pages.sr.ht

Users may now configure custom Cache-Control headers to tune their site
performance.
