Sourcehut is very stable.  It's still called an "alpha" primarily
because it's missing features that they want to implement in the
future---namely some APIs and user-groups/organizations---not because
it's buggy or unstable.  Until I just recently started self-hosting my
git I used sourcehut for all my git projects and there was not one
single issue I ran into.

Other than needing a mail server it's no scarier than installing any
other self-hosted stuff.  If you're running an OS they provide repos for
(alpine, arch, and debian) then you literally just install the package,
and since it natively supports nginx you don't even have to deal with
php/cgi bullshit like you do with a lot of other services.

I will say that since you don't need an account to participate anyways
then it'd be unnecesary to worry about self-hosting it at all unless we
really wanted to.
