You're right, of course. Sorry if my toot implied that, I didn't mean it to. However it's still a noteworthy coincidence and probably a piece of software worth checking out.
lists.sr.ht is federated because email is.
And to contribute to a project hosted on git.sr.ht, you don't need to have an account on the same sr.ht instance that the project is hosted on, unless someone wants to grant you direct commit rights.
Not sure if todo.sr.ht has support for submitting tickets by email, so I think this one may need some work.
man, builds, and dispatch don't need federation at all.
