@Matter I'm not criticizing Gitlab: this is a great software, and vastly superior (imho) to Github in a lot of areas.
I'm talking precisely about migrating to Gitlab.org, instead of spinning a self-hosted instance or join an existing, smaller one.
@eliotberriot https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/issues/4517 this is a proposal for gitlab, there are similar ones for gitea and gogs. Soon we may have a solution that suits most, and then we'll be freeeeeee
@Matter It would be for the best, yes.
Adding federation in a mature software with a huge feature set and user base (such as Gitlab) without breaking performance and security is not a trivial task though.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
