For all those having panickily migrated their projects from #Github to #GitLab to get away from MS: GitLab just started the process of migrating to the Google cloud (GCP). Which means it won't be available in some countries (Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) anymore because of "legal restrictions", as #Google informed them. Hopefully none of the migrators lives in any of them: migration is running already, no access possible anymore.
Well at least you can create your own
@ami But that's not where most migrated to. It's not the software I question.
@DaD Yeah. What's really needed is federation in Gitea, GitLab etc. So everyone and his little sister could self-host, and stuff would still be found.
@IzzyOnDroid Going from Charybe to scylla
@vincentxavier Ouch, a Code Odyssee …
That's a pretty double-edged sword. At least Google doesn't dance to the tune of backwards regimes.
I moved to GitLab because even among large greedy corporations, Microsoft stands out as an asshole among assholes, going out into the world to cause active harm.
Anyway, the move to GitLab is only temporary until there's a viable federated solution.
Okay, they do. The thing is, they get flak for cooperating with censorship, and they also get flak for keeping their backs straight, resulting in blocks.
If our voice is so self-contradicting, it's no wonder they just do whatever they want.
