This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?
The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.
You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.
You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.
@jjg please read my toot carefully: I'm explicitely talking about Gitlab.org.
I've got nothing about Gitlab the software (or the company). But the way things are going, Gitlab.org will become a new Github in the upcoming months.
@eliotberriot Sorry about jumping the gun, just a bit wound up this morning :)
@jjg that's fine, don't worry!
