What's VotePower?

VotePower is your voting currency on Turbosrc. Think of one VotePower as one vote that you can cast on pull requests for a repository. So, if you have 100,000 VotePower, that's 100,000 votes you can use to decide whether to merge or close the pull request. Each new repository on Turbosrc starts with 1 million VotePower.

Can I use VotePower from one project on another?

No, VotePower is specific to each project. So, you might have a lot of VotePower in one project, and none in another.

How do I get VotePower?

What's the difference between a maintainer and contributor on Turbosrc?

As a maintainer, you're the one who brings a project to Turbosrc. You start with all the VotePower and can distribute it as you see fit to contributors. Once you allocate VotePower, you can't take it back. If a user violates the network's terms of service and is removed, their VotePower is shared among the remaining contributors, including yourself.

Why should I put my project on Turbosrc?

Putting your project on Turbosrc allows you to distribute VotePower among contributors, who can then vote on pull requests. It's a great way to make sure changes to the codebase involve the whole community. Plus, it's a fantastic platform for open-source sharing and collaboration.

Are forks allowed on Turbosrc? Can I get a project removed that forked mine?

Yes, forks are allowed. After all, open source is all about sharing code! You can't remove a forked project on Turbosrc, just as you can't on Github. But remember, the value of a project is based on the usefulness of the code and the community, so it's rare for forks to become more popular than the original.
