About the open-sourcing.... would it be possible for you to open source parts of the project? that way even if is useless for someone wanting to host their own instance of this it would allow others to help you with parts of the service without you having to expose the most delicate parts.
This is a possibility. The code is modularized. What part do you want to see?

I know that depending on the modularity of the project this may not be feasible but what about creating a repository for the webpage for example as in the html css and js? People would be able to send merge requests with improvements and you can choose to implement them or not and at the end of the day, the html css and js are kind of already available although minified.
I've already done this. I haven't made it public yet. Is there interest out there?

Another suggestion is to allow integration with our own cloud storage, so we can for example put an API key for google drive and have our saves and everything stored on our clouds without wasting space on yours and i know that google drive is probably not the best example for this.
Storage isn't a huge concern. Most of the cost is compute now. I have considered allowing it to point to external resources.

As other mentioned some kind of method to sharing administration would be awesome, be it by login, a unique url, a token key or a password.
A member of our Discord community has made a token tool available, see the #info channel.

Hi! First of all thanks for the amazing tool it’s really useful! I have a question. Is there a way to make the save game I’m using be experimental so that I can play with the new train mechanics when they come out? Or will I have to wait for the full release for the server to be able to support it? Again thank you sooo much!

Factorio Zone supports all releases on the official Factory download page, including experimental as they're made available. It's just a matter of selecting the version before you start the server.
