How suitable would kotatsu be for facilitating anonymous software development? You can open threads for issues, post patches as attachments, do code review the way they do on mailing lists. Of course there's no integration with version control software but mailing lists lack that too and they work just fine.
You could also create new boards for branches or whatever. I guess it could work.
I remember there was ``rechan'' that tried writing software through an imageboard but I don't remember how it actually worked.
The admin already received fixes in https://4taba.net/thread/cc/116 but doesn't seem that interested in fixing things.
I'm past the stage of modifying to writting my own. Looking at 4taba has helped me understand more about the meta I'm looking for in an imageboard. If you have enough faith in kotatsu to want to use it then Artanis needs to be forked/replaced, but my direction is towards building services around kotatsu and using it as a way for me to protype services for the Kissu software service package(minus the ReactJS SSR server stuff that's occupied me the past month and a bit)
4taba has to be restarted every 12 hours because serving static files causes a memory leak. Perhaps fixable using nginx to serve all content. I thought I did this but looking at the config I haven't
What's wrong with Artanis?
