In the list of emoji icons that appears when writing ":", there is a BROWSE ALL link that points to http://www.emoji.codes/
The web page states that "This domain is parked free of charge with NameSilo.com. NameSilo offers the cheapest domains on the Internet as well as"

Good catch thanks. Any suggestion for a replacement link?
It looks like the emojione project we were using went proprietary :( https://github.com/joypixels/emojione
A FOSS option may be: https://www.openmoji.org/
This looks interesting, and also actively maintained: https://pypi.org/project/emoji/
Displaying emoji would then rely on the local / browser emoji font for rendering, and not on any web service.
@decathorpe This doesn't look half-bad! Is it available in Fedora and EPEL?
I just checked, and the latest version (0.5.4) is already in all fedora branches and EPEL8:
Just as an update, the "BROWSE ALL" link in the comment editor popup now redirects to the page for "ShiftApp Employee Scheduling Software" (https://www.shiftapp.com/), an even more nonsensical destination than the previous parked domain. Really need to get that replaced.
If it's just a question of linking to a page listing available emoji, there's always the official Unicode Consortium chart.
As far as completion goes, though, another possibility is to replace emojicomplete.js with the emojionearea completer (Demo here: https://jsfiddle.net/mervick/1v03Lqnu/765/) which IMHO seems a lot better than the current completer.
For example, typing :roll into the pagure completer currently produces 7 matches, none of them the obvious choice: 🙄. In the emojionearea completer, two results come up, and they're exactly the correct two results:

The emojionearea JS also supports a "catalog" style selector with the expected categories, a skin tone selector, and a search box:
...For which I forgot the screenshot.

(Ooh, it can also store a recently-used emoji list. Nice!)
And now is pointing to https://www.shiftapp.com/
So, two years later (now), still nothing has changed.
I'd be willing to look at possibly replacing emojicomplete.js with the emojionearea completer I mentioned a couple of comments back, which seems as good an option as any.
That is, I'm willing if someone can get me started by pointing me to the correct repo(s) I should be hacking against to update both pagure.io and src.fedoraproject.org.
(And maybe also whatever documentation is available on getting new test code running on a staging service. This would obviously need a lot of testing eventually, and my last [failed] attempts to run pagure services on my local machine cost an hour of my life I'll never get back and don't feel like repeating. I know a staging server at least exists for src.fpo, but I've never really seen any concrete information about it. Not to say the info doesn't exist, I just don't know where it is.)
