Yes, this is a pain point for me as well, but note _some_ of the
subprojects are already self-hosted here:
Gitea itself is still ONLY mirrored there, waiting for some features
to be completed before "owners" of the project (elected yearly by
maintainers, with maintainers being a growing list of people only
needing to get 4 PRs approved):

The issue is unfortunately "locked", and Gitea devs community is not
"easy" to reach (again: maintainers' choice to be on Discord, another
proprietary platform). There's an IRC channel on Freenode though
(#gitea) you can use.

Note Free Software Foundation Europe uses Gitea too:
