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 Why is that ? Maybe stumbled upon while searching ?

@mcread I don't know why, but I'm suddenly getting a lot of feedback on this post since yesterday, and it's a bit weird

@eliotberriot well that can only mean you posted too much yesterday ;)

@eliotberriot Or maybe more than usual ... I guess that's the problem : a break in routine, a distortion in the matrix ;)
