@yarmo @codeberg Good blog post, I'll check out some of the self hosted alternatives.

I do think that occasional service outages themselves are not a good reason to migrate to another hosted service. It gives people wrong expectations about the alternatives.

All software breaks, and tbh I'd trust someone with GitHub's resources to have enough operational resources to mitigate the breakage faster than a much smaller alternative.


@karan You and others are absolutely right. When will I learn, don't write when frustrated.

I added a better argumentation at the bottom of the article (clearly stating it was added later). Hope this helps get my point across.

And no, Github indeed isn't dying :/
