[Blog] Mirror repos: easily created, consuming resources forever
@codeberg Maybe having an official account for mirrors of popular projects and a formal mechanism for mirroring requests could help (e.g. anything below 10MB is automatic, the rest needs approval).
@codeberg Years of automated DMCA takedowns and similar nonsense trained people to mirror and re-host everything of value—that behaviour is, sadly, rational. We all need to raise awareness of the need to make coordinated preservation efforts.
@dmbaturin please use push-mirrors to keep your projects on multiple platforms (as described in blog). They will always work.
