Deprecation of etherpad.gnome.org

Hi folks,

As we are trying to reduce the number of maintained services, we are going to disable Etherpad in a month, on 2022-12-01. The recommended alternative is Hedgedoc, which seems to fit requirements of various teams better.

Please make sure to migrate any notes you wish to keep to avoid data loss.

Thanks,
Bart

Replacing one service with another isn’t exactly reducing the number of services… are there other motivations here?

(I’m not against the change - just wondering)

We’ve been maintaining both for some time, as it’s easier to write Markdown in Hedgedoc (which is useful given its ubiquity in GitLab, Github, Discourse, etc). So ultimately, one collaborative editor is fewer than two editors.

Ah, I didn’t know that we already had a Hedgedoc instance. This will work well for the design team calls, I think.
