@mike wait Friedman is “trying to make it better?” I hadn’t heard to before. What’s the story with that?
For now I am going to stick with them for my repos but that is just because there aren't any other good options really and I don't have time to setup my own CI/CD pipelines... I would love to self host everything but there is only so much time in this world.
* the UI is terrible
* at least once every time I try to use it pages just won't even load
* Their CI/CD is complete garbage, it just refuses to run steps sometimes until you re run the job
* This is going to sound petty but changing the name "Pull Request" to "Merge Request" even though PR is an industry standard is just stupid.
* They have a very similar DMCA policy to GitHub so in this case if wouldn't really make a difference...
@TheCraiggers really the only benefit the Gitlab has is it isn't owned my Microsoft... But for me the downsides strongly outweigh that.
