I recently learned about the REUSE Software project and I wanted to to register my project on https://api.reuse.software/. But I couldn’t do it, even though I had no problems running
reuse lint locally.
After inspecting the code and running the related script (reuse-lint-repo), I saw that the URL of my git repository (or any sourcehut repository) is not compatible with the way how container names are generated. I don’t know why the username and the project name are part of the container name, rather than using a hash function with a longer output.
I wanted to report this on reuse/api: API for checking REUSE compliance of a git project - api - FSFE Git Service but I was unable to create a FSFE account and it is not possible to create an issue using the mirror on GitHub. If it was inappropriate to write about this in here, then I am sorry. If so, can you direct me to the correct place?
