When you look at the design it is almost a clone of github. People who are used to github will love gogs.
Pro Libre/open source
Source code published under the MIT license.

Con Can't filter by a user to see all their commits in one place
I want to see a single user's entire history, but clicking a user's name only shows all users' history, not just the one I clicked.
