I'm really glad to see so many people use @codeberg nowadays.
I've tried to make the switch away from GitHub to another hoster myself several times and got bitten every time, so I am not going to switch myself soon.
However, I am somewhat optimistic about Codeberg. They seem to have momentum nobody else has and they may actually end up surviving.
I will definitely keep naming Codeberg as an option for people looking for a host, I wish them luck!
So in case you’re wondering (like I was) why @gitea is not hosted on Gitea but still at GitHub, it’s apparently because they’re locked in by GitHub who are drip feeding them their data with extremely low rate limits.
This is an outrage.
A trillion-dollar company (Microsoft) is holding a free and open source competitor’s repository hostage on their systems.
Who do we pressure at GitHub to provide Gitea with all their data ASAP?
Woodpecker CI (closed beta) is also back up now.
We'll post more details about the incident on our blog soon.
The total downtime of our Gitea infrastructure was about 65 minutes.
Thank you for your patience, and sorry for all the trouble caused.
The network filesystem is restored and Gitea is back up without data loss.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
We might have found an unrelated issue with our CI (closed beta), but we'll focus on monitoring the production network.
Now we know more about the issue - as usual, a cascade of problems.
We're hoping to get it fixed ASAP. We decided to let the service stay down to avoid potential data inconsistency and focus on bringing the whole network back up.
The last repos I had on GItlab.com are now fully transferred to other platforms including #Codeberg. The @codeberg migration tool is amazingly snappy and super easy to use. Basically it took careful selection of what goes to what platform, and then running the following on all the local instances:
git remote set-url origin firstname.lastname@example.org:mehrad/????.git
I also deleted my essential repos from #Gitlab . Now they can save all those spaces they need.
Free as in Freedom. The Non-Profit Collaboration Platform and #Git hosting for Free and Open Source Software, content and projects. 💙
