I just call it Microsoft GitHub these days. Does half the job of communicating the risks of it being a hard dependency for FOSS projects in particular.

@raucao @rgggn Switch to codeberg.org/ – you can import your MS Github repos there: code, wiki, issues and all that. Your Google Gitlab repos as well, AFAIK.


@raucao @rgggn :+1: That's what's driving Codeberg as well. And my local mirrors (just in case).

So for those who cannot/wantnot self-host, feel free to recommend Codeberg. Good folks, I know some of them personally. And to them it's important to stay "self sufficient" and not let the "big (bad) guys" in. Funding comes from members. They're non-profit (hopefully soon "officially recognized" so one can even reduce tax by funding them).
