~sircmpwn/sr.ht#194:
Create new sourcehut service: goto

It's nice to have project/topic-specific short links that are also editable (fixable) if target URL needs to be changed. Usually that kind of services keep also hit count, so you can see how often particular links are used.

Value of such links is that their name can be meaningful, thus easier to memorize, use, and thanks to their non-permanent nature, future proof.

Such project gotos should be importable and exportable. They could be internally stored in some easy to parse text file in git, so it would be easy to track changes in it and update in some more automatic way via git push for instance.

Usage examples Threads in mailing lists can have very long URLs

That kind of messages could be reachable via links like: https://goto.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht/201904

I thought about this for a bit, but I'd rather not add a service like this. The utility doesn't justify the maintenance burden.
