This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?
The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.
You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.
You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.
@eliotberriot one upside of Gitlab is that it's open, so you can stand up your own instance if Google starts pulling shit.
Not an option with Github
Personally I’d like to see things like issue tracking and wikis be handled as a file convention within the repo itself. So forks automatically pull the state of affairs at that point in time and merges merge in changes to them.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
