Upgrade from Gitea

Forgejo is a fully-compatible drop-in replacement for Gitea.

When migrating from Gitea to the Forgejo release with the same release number (eg from Gitea v1.19 to Forgejo v1.19), all that is necessary is to replace the Gitea binary with the Forgejo binary (or change the container image).
