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.
@eliotberriot Sorry about jumping the gun, just a bit wound up this morning :)
