ICYMI: there was a hashtag trending on twitter (you know, this commercial mastodon clone) ... calling for #GitHubForEveryone. If you have not checked it out yet, please do now. We could never explain any better why we founded Codeberg e.V., and why we operate Codeberg.org, the free-as-in-freedom code repo platform
After this announcement, independent CI/CD platforms like travisci, CircleCI might get a hard time. Any opinions what we should do for Codeberg? https://twitter.com/github/status/1159511691480260608
Does anyone know of a (curated) list of URLs of public EFA APIs (public transport)?
Do you know one for your own city maybe?
Please send them my way, I'm collecting them for an open-source project that lets you query public transport stops, timetables & routes:
I am an open source freelancer who makes a living from open source, and I openly protest GitHub processing donation payments.
This is NOT about a nice new feature, this is about a multi-year Microsoft strategy to centralize and enclose open source community dynamics. https://twitter.com/github/status/1131476921693474816
We are curious to learn about your experiences. Please join the thread: https://social.tchncs.de/@beli3ver/102552260070275109
Let us invite you to contribute to
Gitea's federation protocol, and we will have federation at Codeberg. Promise! https://twitter.com/rchavik/status/1157094313144094721

Honest question. How does it come, that Wikipedia is seemingly could not be forced to enforce an export ban, but GitHub and GitLab? The encyclopaedia should surely contain more knowledge on, say, for example, how nuclear weapons work than some random (private!) repos? Might the distinguishing difference be that between a nonprofit entity and a for-profit service, that is not allowed do *business* with trade sanctioned countries?
There have been many recommendations today to move to GitLab after GitHub locked out users from Iran and Crimea. @GCPcloud, which GitLab is using as infrastructure provider, is not serving those countries (also https://about.gitlab.com/2018/07/19/gcp-move-update/ )
