@floppy @pcastela @codeberg Codeberg is a non-profit, registered in Germany. They already have the funds to keep the project going for the next 50(?) years (source missing) and are very transparent: https://blog.codeberg.org/
On the technology side they are building on gitea, a very nice open source git server/webfrontend.
Later this year I will (finally) continue on realising quite a few plans on self-hosting. At the same time I have never been very much on Gitlab/Github/etc.
I'm wondering whether I should host my own repositories or whether I should stick to one of the public platforms. (Also in terms of self-promotion, which some people like employers seem to expect.)
Honestly if you own a server you can setup a bare git server on it with ease and use any tools.
Gitlab is okay, Bitbucket is kind of full of Atlassian bloat, might be a positive if you use Jira and other Atlassian stack...
If you want CI/CD, Pages and complex features, you should look into GitLab (or any feature-enabled instance of it).
Also, you might want to look into this list: https://floss.social/@ademalsasa/103685688980469250
@pcastela Codeberg and Sourcehut as alternatives (or really, upgrades) to GitHub. Some repo copies in Keybase as well. Only using Gitlab for git-lfs repos.
Not using any alternatives to Git; Git is just Git everywhere. Mercurial is still a thing of note, and Fossil is intriguing... but they’re not part of my world at the moment.
For going full-on Git, I’m using git-bug for task management. Super simple, offline-first, avoids server-side feature lock-in for my private repos.
