I understand Gitlab as as Github clone (at least when it began). I've heard about and looked at Codeberg briefly a couple of times and it looks interesting, but I never really got: What is setting Codeberg apart?

@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: blog.codeberg.org/

On the technology side they are building on gitea, a very nice open source git server/webfrontend.

Thank you for the explanation!

So the biggest difference is the ethics, supporting good maintainers, I assume.

@floppy @pcastela @codeberg Ethics and the knowledge that your code is not at the mercy of a money focused corporation.

Also dat slick logo :codeberg:

@verbumfeit @pcastela @codeberg
Good points! Also, +1 for dat logo indeed.

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.)

@verbumfeit @floppy @pcastela @codeberg It just clicked. Duh.

Code Mountain! The logo, the name 🤯
