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.
@IzzyOnDroid Going from Charybe to scylla
I moved my stuff to gitlab to ensure I had a working HEAD for my repositories.
Then I created my own go-gitea instance. It doesn't have the massive overhead of self-hosted gitlab, and it has served me extremely well ever since.
My sole complaint is their use a .io domain for the primary website:
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.
