#GitHub is a major attack vector against #Bitcoin. Bitcoin Core hosts the code on GitHub but also at their own site. Some other Bitcoin projects run their own #gitlab instances but the majority do not.
If #Microsoft is someday compelled to screw with Bitcoin they can at the very least knock these projects offline for a period of time.
Open source projects should at a minimum host their code in a location additional to github.
SourceHut: love the minimalistic style, but git-email only. I like my Magit :(
Codeberg: no proprietary projects (yet. Important to me because of work and my preference of having every project at a single place).
GitLab: horrible UI, especially on mobile.
I’d love to completely leave GitHub behind but it’s impossible (for me). Not to mention that most, if not all, projects that I’m interested are hosted there.
@telroy Don't delete your account from GitHub, but just move your code elsewhere. Use Github only when you have to contribute to a project
@lordrishav I did that (moved everything to GitLab a few weeks ago) but I just can’t get used to it’s interface…
politics aside: when github came out it could display branche tree between project forks. That was great, so they decided to kill it! Today other things have become important like ci pipelines, or container registries, which are not native in github afaik. I also like the idea of being able to install on premise. Which is why I prefer gitlab over github. sr.ht and gitea are viable options, too.

Can't it still, tho? e.g. https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix.org/network/members
@fossdd Nothing wrong with being for-profit, but they have some very bad privacy practices. They use Google Captcha, Cloudflare and Google Analytics
@alexbuzzbee GitLab is open core, not open source. I don't see any benefit to using them over GitHub. Certainly not for the sake of software freedom.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
