I think there are in general two problems. We don't have many volunteers for ruby runtime (not sure if it's the code-base or set of technologies).
And then we break systems with current repo enablement, we want to free the forum from half-upgraded Leap/Tumbleweed systems.
I think whoever first announces "This is what I have and it works" and we can see if that would be viable direction wins. I'd love personally if that direction could help us decide what particular devel/home/project to choose. So some sort of stats / thumbs up would be very helpful.
I'd love to see OPI utilization as people generally seem to like it, or at least the people that I regularly speak to.
On the other side, fixing current codebase would help as well as long as we can find active maintainers :-)

One of the outcomes of today's *community meeting was that we need to decomission the current *software.opensuse.org code-base, as we can't find volunteers to maintain it nor develop it any further. The current code-base and its deployment is tied to ruby25 which makes appliacations of security fixes for currently used rubygems almost inpossible.
I can update the deps over a weekend or two, which version of ruby should I aim for, to best work with the deployment?
There was already a *brainstorm about the services' future, but there was not much progress in that direction.
I really hope that this can ignite some constructive discussions that could help us to develop a replacement for the current service. As suggesed in the meeting minutes there are upcoming opportunities that we could make use such as gsoc, outreachy, hackweek. We should not try to make this a ruby vs python vs node fight, but instead try to find a sustainable solution to keep the service running for the next decade.
If you don't mind, could we maybe also have a space to discuss this with some IM solution? We do have the old #software-o-o:opensuse.org matrix room, that was at some point bridged to gitter, though idk if that's still the case. If that doesn't work for you, I can bridge with some other platform as well.
